When patients are missing a significant number of teeth, there is no quicker or better solution than the Teeth in 1 Day, All-on-Four Procedure. After your consultation and with the initial steps set-up, your arch reconstructive surgery takes less time than a drive to San Francisco. You come in the morning and leave by the mid afternoon with a Brand new, functional and beautiful new arch of teeth.
While the Traditional Dental Implant Procedure uses as many as eight to ten implants for each arch reconstruction, All-on-Four® uses only four. The secret to its success is the 45-degree angle of the rear implants. As this implant is longer, it is stronger and able to readily fuse into available bone not usable with older dental implants, saving you the additional step of bone grafting.
Best of all, your newly installed implants will get crowned the very same day, providing you with a beautiful smile the same day you come in. Traditional implants can take almost a year before teeth can be placed, leaving you either toothless or with less ideal solutions such as dentures.
All-on-4 is a revolutionary technique whereby a whole arch of failing, damaged or missing teeth is replaced by prosthetic teeth supported by Dental Implants. The implants are placed and high-quality temporary teeth fitted in one visit, with the permanent teeth being fitted approximately six months later when the gums have healed and the implants have fused to the natural bone in the mouth. The procedure is significantly less invasive compared to traditional dental implant treatment making it possible to restore a patient’s smile without the need for complicated procedures such as bone grafting. All-on-4 can also be carried out on patients who have previously lost their own teeth and currently wear Dentures.
- Immediate Function
- Requires Minimal Recovery Time
- Eliminates The Need For Bone Grafting in the Majority of Cases
- Ensures Long-Term Results
- Renews A Youthful Appearance Through Bone Level Stabilization
- Creates A Whole New Smile In Just One Day to Enhance Self Confidence
- Has A Lower Overall Cost Than Other Implant Procedures
All-on-4 was developed to provide patients with an innovative treatment concept using only four dental implants to support a full arch of fixed teeth. Two of the implants are placed vertically at the front of the mouth, taking advantage of the denser jawbone existing there. The two remaining implants are placed at the back of the mouth and are fitted at forty-five degree angles to allow maximum stability and avoid the maxillary sinuses in the upper jaw.
Traditional fixed full arch dental implant techniques require 6-10 implants with a period of healing time where the bridge cannot be fixed to the implants.
Extensive bone grafting for implant placement may also be required. With the All-on-4 technique, the bone to implant contact is optimized and the need for any bone grafting is minimized.
- Considered to be some of the most successful treatments in dentistry in terms of patient satisfaction and survival of the restoration and implants.
- Effectively removes the need for bone grafting, which can be more invasive, pricey, and uncomfortable for patients.
- This procedure is well accepted by most patients and of a reasonably short duration – it typically takes half a day to perform an implant reconstruction.
- Can usually be executed in patients with diabetes, osteoporosis or other illnesses that are frequently contraindications for bone grafting.
- All of the treatment can be performed in a single day – not only the surgery, but also the placement of fixed (non-removable) temporary teeth with immediate function. Traditional techniques often involve multiple surgeries and may take over a year to finish.
- Healthy and youthful teeth that feel and function similar to your own healthy dentition.
- Extremely hygienic – easy to maintain and clean.
- Cost-Advantage – The cost is usually about half of more traditional techniques which involve bone grafting and the engagement of more than 4 implants.
- Like any treatment it is imperative that the provider is adequately trained and certified to perform this procedure. Otherwise, failures and complications are more likely.
- Not every patient is a candidate for this type of restoration. A trained doctor or specialist will be able to tell you if you or your loved one will be a good candidate for this type of treatment.
- All the teeth are connected to make them stronger. This one a piece bridge which looks and feels similar to teeth.
- You cannot floss between the teeth.
- In the hands of a skilled all on 4 certified doctor the teeth will appear natural and individual. If one tooth were to break, the whole bridge will need to be removed and serviced.
You may be suitable for treatment if you:
- Have failing crowns or bridges and/or loose teeth that need extracting
- Have loose dentures that affect your quality of life
- Have severe periodontal gum disease
- Have suffered loss of jawbone as a result of missing teeth
- Have been told that you do not have enough bone for traditional dental implants
Before the All-on-Four implants are installed, you will have a few visits with Dr. Jivraj at Anacapa Dental Art Institute in order to craft your unique treatment plan. Using CT Scan technology, highly sophisticated cameras, X-Rays and impressions, Dr. Jivraj will establish every aspect of your surgery before it occurs, allowing the day of surgery to be as streamlined as possible.
After these set-up steps, the All-On-Four Dental Implant procedure takes only one additional day. You come in the morning and leave in the afternoon with a whole new smile. For this reason, Dr. Jivraj’s patients call this procedure the best All on 4 dental implants Ventura County has available.
After the above-described steps, there is one additional procedure six months later where Dr. Jivraj will take impressions in order to make your final permanent set of teeth that will last decades. After those are installed, this would then conclude what Dr. Jivraj’s patients are hailing as the most beautiful All on Four implants Oxnard has available.
It is important that you try to stop smoking at least four weeks prior to surgery and for the first four weeks following the procedure, as research
indicates a lower dental implant success rate in smokers. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU STOP SMOKING BEFORE SURGERY.
THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR IMPLANT SURGERY:
Ensure you get a good night’s sleep prior to surgery. Have a light, nutritious evening meal and use the prescribed Oral Rinse as directed last thing before going to bed. Ensure that you have taken all of the medications that your doctor has prescribed for you for the night before surgery.
In the morning prior to your surgery, you must bring all of your prescribed medication to the office. You will most likely be prescribed the following:
- Anti-inflammatory or steroid medications to help with swelling.
- Antibiotics to prevent infections.
- Antiseptic mouthwash Peridex Oral Rinse.
THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE:
On the morning of your surgery, please bring all your prescribed medication to your appointment. If you have opted for intravenous sedation please note that the following additional guidelines apply:
- NOTHING TO EAT OR DRINK after midnight before the morning of surgery unless you are taking routine medication such as hypertensive or cardiac medication. If surgery is to be carried out in the afternoon, you may have a light breakfast – e.g. 6oz of juice and a slice of toast.
- If you wear contact lenses, please leave them out on the morning of surgery.
- Someone MUST drive you to and from the office and stay on the premises for the duration of your procedure. The doctor will not commence
treatment unless your designated driver is present.
- If you have been prescribed a pre-med, it must be taken as directed an hour prior to your appointment.
- Wear short-sleeved, comfortable clothing.
There may be some bleeding following your procedure. To minimize this, avoid rinsing, spitting, or touching the wound for the first 24 hours following surgery. Excessive bleeding should be treated initially by biting on a gauze pad placed directly on the wound for 20-30 minutes. If bleeding continues, please call your dental office for further instructions.
Good oral hygiene will help speed up the healing process. Use Chlorhexidine Gluconate Oral Rinse before bed, immediately following surgery and twice daily thereafter. Be sure to rinse for at least 30 seconds before spitting out. Warm salt-water rinses (one teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) should also be used 4-5 times a day, especially after meals. Continue to brush your teeth twice a day, taking care to avoid brushing and flossing near the surgical site for the first three weeks. After your stitches have been removed you may start to gently use appliances (Proximal brushes, Super floss, and Waterpik irrigation) to clean under your temporary bridges.
Start taking pain relief medication as soon as you feel the local anesthetic wearing off. For moderate pain, 1-2 Tylenol or Extra Strength Tylenol may be taken every 3-4 hours. Alternatively, take 2-3 tablets of 200mg Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) every 3-4 hours as needed. Do not take any of the above if you are allergic or have been instructed otherwise by your doctor. Please follow instructions for pain medication protocol given to you by your Doctor. Please inform the doctor of any medications that you may be allergic to and any medications you are currently taking.
It is essential that you take your prescribed antibiotics as directed to help prevent infection.
To minimize swelling following surgery, apply frequent ice packs to your face during the first 36 hours. If you have some bruising to the face, the ice packs will also help reduce this.
Drink plenty of fluids, avoiding hot drinks for the first 24 hours. You may wish to restrict your diet to soft foods and liquids for the first couple of months. Avoid sucking liquids through a straw in the first week. A good analogy for your new temporary restoration would be if you were to break you leg and for it to end up in a plaster cast. It will be wise to avoid placing too much weight on your broken leg even though it is in a strong plaster cast. Your new provisional restorations are similar to a plaster cast. Although they are strong, stable, and function like teeth, you must eat soft foods during the healing and integration process. This process takes at least 8 weeks. This will maximize the outcome. After 2-3 you may start chewing harder foods.
Keep physical activities to a minimum immediately following surgery. Exercise may be resumed a few days after surgery but occasionally it may
cause bleeding or discomfort and if this happens you should stop immediately and wait a few more days before exercising further.
Suture removal typically happens two weeks following surgery. If you have any concerns in the hours, days or weeks following surgery, please do not hesitate to contact your certified dentist.

The Anacapa Dental Art Institute proudly offers a specialized form of the All-on-Four Procedure to those who have had cancer treatments in which a portion of jaw had to be removed. Dr. Jivraj, who is an Expert Prosthodontist and a leader in the field of dental implant surgeries, can use the cheekbone for the placement of the implant. This practice has been well researched and can give amazing results where one had previously thought all hope was lost.
Various materials and techniques are used for dental implant restorations and at first, the choice may seem overwhelming. Your doctor will discuss the options available to you and advise you based on your individual requirements.
This type of bridge is connected to the implants via an interface on the day of implant placement. It is fabricated from a softer material than the other types of bridge available and will therefore appear slightly bulkier than the final restoration in order to maintain strength. Acrylic bridges typically last between 6 months and two years. Gentle chewing and soft foods are recommended during this phase for all patients.
An alternative to acrylic restorations, this type of bridge is more natural in appearance and will last for 2-3 years. Fiber reinforced bridges are sometimes also recommended for medium term restorations.
In terms of cost effectiveness, this is an excellent option. 3D digital imaging is used to design a custom-made titanium framework that is used to support your new acrylic resin teeth. This type of bridge normally lasts between 5-10 years and when it comes to replacement, a simple and inexpensive resurfacing procedure is often all that is needed, whereby the existing metal framework is reused, and the new acrylic tooth/ teeth attached.
This is a high-end restoration, in terms of cost and appearance. As with the acrylic option, 3D digital imaging is used to design a custom-made titanium framework. This supports a set of bespoke ceramic teeth manufactured from multiple layers of a translucent material to achieve an extremely realistic final appearance. These teeth do not stain and will maintain their luster for the duration of the restoration, which can be 10 -15 years or more.
In full mouth restorations, your doctor may advise you to opt for a combination of bridges. An upper zirconia bridge combined with a lower metal framework and acrylic resin teeth will minimize the ‘clicking’ sound some patients with both upper and lower zirconia bridges experience.
You want the assurance that your doctor has received the appropriate training in order to be able to carry out the All-on-4 procedure proficiently. Our stringent training, examination and certification program will give you the peace of mind you need and ensure you receive the very best treatment at all times.
AO4+ Implant Solution – George T.
George was suffering from tooth decay and gum disease. He unfortunately had to have all of his teeth removed. George was an engineer and understood the mechanics of dental implants and wanted something sturdy that was going to last him along time. He wanted fixed permanent teeth
- A complete work up was done including computer diagnostics so the implants could be placed in the right position.
- His prototype teeth were fabricated ahead of time.
- His implants were placed using computer guided surgery which can help precision in difficult situations.
- George was extremely satisfied with his temporary teeth.
- After healing final teeth were made.
- George enjoys his teeth and he says “The teeth feel so strong that I can bite into anything."
The price may vary for each country or region, and normally it is divided in two phases. The usual pricing structure in the United States is described below:
- The first phase involves removing any compromised remaining teeth, and placing the four dental implants in each jaw along with an immediate temporary bridge secured to the four implants. This phase may cost between $15,000 to $20,000 per jaw.
- Approximately 6 months after the first phase and after complete healing and integration of the implants to the bone, a final bridge is usually fabricated. This bridge typically consists of stronger and durable materials than temporary. This phase may cost between $12,000 to $20,000 per jaw, dependent on the materials used and the type of teeth (porcelain or acrylic resin).
The total price for both jaws could range between $40,000 to $65,000.
You can rest assured that our certified treatment coordinators can tailor a suitable financial package that is affordable for you so that payments can be made over time. Payments can be as low as $399.00 a month for suitably qualified individuals. (Restrictions apply).
The All-on-4 treatment concept is designed to minimize pain. You will be given a local anesthetic and offered a sedative in most cases. Patients are often surprised at how little discomfort they experience and how quickly they recover, with many returning to work the following day.
Absolutely. Your dentist will work with you to make the perfect replacement teeth, both in shape and shade. In addition, moulds are taken of the natural contours of your jaw to ensure a perfect fit resulting in a winning smile. The 2 patients photographed are examples of different smile designs. Patients were extremely satisfied with their treatment. With proper communication all of your aesthetic needs will be incorporated into your treatment.
Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from enjoying the Benefits of Dental Implants. However, generally, health is more of a determining factor than age. If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to benefit from dental implants.
Even if the bone has significantly receded, All-on-4 restorations can usually be performed without the need for grafting because of the unique positioning of the implants. Certified All-on-4 Doctors will treat the majority of patients without any bone grafting.
The success of the procedure has been remarkable, not only based on the positive testimonials of those who’ve had the procedure, but on the scientific proven effectiveness. Published success rates currently stand conservatively at 93.8%, which includes a 10-year follow up*. (*Malo P, de Araujo Nobre M, Lopes A, Moss SM, Molina GJ. A longitudinal study of the survival of All-on-4 implants in the mandible with up to 10 years of follow up. J Am Dent Assoc 2011; 142(3); 310-320.
