What did that say?! Teeth in a day? That’s right. With the All-on-4 treatment from Vero Beach dentist at Vero Implant and Esthetic Dentistry, we can provide a complete smile to patients who are eager to be rid of removable dentures or those who are edentulous or toothless.
All-on-4, as the name suggests, only needs four dental implants along either the upper or lower arch to securely anchor a custom-fitted set of permanent dentures. During the All-on-4 implant retained denture procedure, we can extract teeth if necessary, place implants and secure dentures all in one day.
All of the dentists at Vero Implant and Esthetic Dentistry are Board Eligible Prosthodontists who have received thorough training in all aspects of implant dentistry. For you the patient, this means you’re assured of quality care and that each phase of your treatment will happen in our office.

Traditional implants can also be used to restore your smile with a permanent overdenture. However, these implants often necessitate bone graft surgery and more than four implants. With All-on-4, however, implants are angled with precision in order to take full advantage of existing bone volume. Moreover, once in place, All-on-4 implants help to prevent bone loss, which is a frequent occurrence among toothless people, as well as those who wear removable dentures.
The All-on-4 Implant Procedure
Using x-rays as a guide, one of our dentists will strategically position the All-on-4 implants. Once in place, we’ll attach an abutment to each one, which in turn fits into a special casing along the underside of a set of temporary dentures. You’ll need to wear this temporary set while your gums heal and the implants bond with the surrounding bone tissue. This process, called osseointegration, is what provides a strong foundation for your fixed dentures and also encourages healthy new bone growth.
After about six months, you’ll return to Vero Implant and Esthetic Dentistry for new impressions, so we can design permanent dentures that fit perfectly. Once these are secured to your All-on-4 implants, you’ll be able to enjoy all kinds of foods—steak, corn on the cob, a whole apple—without any concern that your dentures might slip.
