Teeth-In-One-Day or All-ON-4 Dental Implants in Vancouver & Burnaby BC by Specialists
A minimally invasive solution with a fixed full-arch implant restoration for high patient satisfaction
Teeth-In-One-Day is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that takes about two hours. This technology utilizes collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the implant surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery is done in an arthroscopic fashion without requiring any large flap reflection. This benefits the patient in that there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day. The process begins when a CAT scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient. Fixed (Non-removable) Same-Day-Teeth, providing immediate function and aesthetics with higher affordability.
All-On-Four Dental Implants in Vancouver Burnaby BC
The fixed prosthesis on four dental implants is a cost-efficient and graft less solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
- Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants
Two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior
- Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge)
For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants
- Graftless procedure
Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone
This is a revolutionary concept in oral rehabilitation with dental implants for people who have lost all their teeth or those who require multiple teeth removed due to severe disease with the placement of as few as four dental implants. Implants act as a base for the placement of a fixed set of natural-looking restorations. Teeth are fixed permanently on four implants, making All-on-4 affordable, stable, and reliable solution for patients with missing teeth.
Many patients who may not have been candidates for implants in the past, due to complex bone grafting requirements and high costs of these procedures as well as the placement of large numbers of implants (generally 8-10), can often undergo this treatment due to the unique placement of 2 implants in the back of the jaw bone at a 45-degree angle, along with conventional implant placement (usually 2 implants) in the front of the mouth. The use of angulated implants in the back of the mouth overcomes the problem of bone height/volume deficiencies by avoiding enlarged sinuses, often without major bone grafting procedures.
All-on-4 implant treatment protocol maintains high rates of success with satisfying aesthetic and functional results. Please book a consultation appointment with our specialists at IMPrESS Perio Implant Center to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment modality.
Same-Day Immediate Implants Vancouver Burnaby BC, The IMPrESS Experience
Immediate implant placement and temporization, when properly indicated, has three main advantages: timing, biology and prosthetics.
Immediate implant placement and temporization, when properly indicated, has three main advantages: timing, biology and prosthetics. Treatment time and number of surgical procedures are reduced compared to a delayed approach. From a biological standpoint, using a slow-resorbing material to fill the gap between the implant and the buccal plate enables predictably preserved bone volume. The provisional crown supports the gingival architecture and helps maintain the pre-existing positions of the gingival margin and interdental papillae. From a prosthetics perspective, placing an implant retained provisional crown on the day of surgery simplifies the temporization in the esthetic area, allowing the patient to leave the office on the same day with a fixed provisional. The success of this procedure relies on three basic principles: proper indication, atraumatic extraction and sufficient primary stability of the implant. The latter depends widely on the choice of the implant design and drilling protocol, which should considered for greater primary stability.
