The ALL-ON-4®, or Teeth-In-A-Day, concept has revolutionized replacement of teeth on dental implants in a single procedure. This technology has been used to restore the smile of hundreds of thousands of people and is backed by nearly 20 years of study and research. Utilizing the collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the oral surgeon, Drs. Lohr and Hollabaugh are able to replace all upper and/or lower teeth in a single procedure. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only improved outcomes, but decreased treatment time to avoid any period of time with missing teeth.
Dentures were traditionally the only option dentists had to replace all top or bottom teeth. However, dentures may cause pain or discomfort if they do not fit well, cause trouble talking or eating, and they have to be removed at night. With Teeth-In-A-Day, Drs. Lohr and Hollabaugh work with your restorative dentist to get you a set of teeth that screw in place at the time of surgery.
The process begins when a consultation appointment where an evaluation is performed, a 3D scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone, and Drs. Lohr and Hollabaugh discuss the procedure in detail. Between your consultation and surgery appointments, we will work behind the scenes in conjunction with your dentist to either digitally or traditionally fabricated temporary dentures. On the day of surgery, Drs. Lohr and Hollabaugh are able to remove any remaining teeth and place 4-6 implants on the top and/or bottom. At the end of the procedure, you leave with dentures screwed in place – no loose dentures and no need to take dentures out at night anymore!
Drs. Lohr and Hollabaugh are some of the only providers in the Midwest that also offer zygomatic and pterygoid dental implants. These implants are helpful in treating patients with severe bone loss or very limited bone. These implants are placed in conjunction with traditional implants to act as 2 or 4 of the 4-6 total implants in the upper jaw used in Teeth-In-A-Day solutions. There are hundreds of brands of dental implants, but our office exclusively uses Nobel® and Straumann® brand implants, which are the 2 leading implant companies. Our office does not use any third party or discount implant parts as we want to ensure the best result for our patients.
