New Teeth in One Day – All-On-4 Dental Implants

When you have been looking into permanent teeth replacement solutions, you may have come across all-on-4 dental implants and discover that this treatment can give you replacement teeth in one day. To find out how this exactly works, please read our information below and determine if all-on-4 dental implants are the right choice for your dental problems.

Do I Really Get My Replacement Teeth On the Day of Treatment?

To understand how all-on-4 dental implants can provide you with replacement teeth on the first day of treatment, it is best to look at the patient’s journey once they arrive at our Malo Clinic.

All On 4 Dental Impants

The first appointment

During your very first appointment at the Malo Clinic, you will learn more about the procedure. You will also have to undergo a thorough medical assessment, this to make sure that the treatment can be executed successfully for you, and to eliminate any underlying problems that could affect the success rate of the treatment. To ensure your suitability for the treatment, our experienced dentists and oral surgeons will look at your medical history, dental history, diagnostic radiographs, photographs and impressions. Based on the results, we are able to create a treatment plan that fits you.

The Second Appointment

When you visit us for your second appointment, our oral surgeon will execute the all-on-4 procedure and take impressions for the placement of the teeth. Most patients will have this procedure done under a local anaesthetic, but a general anaesthetic is also a possibility.

Within 24-48 hours of your surgery, your new teeth can be tried in. During this particular stage of the dental implant treatment, the surgeon can still make adjustments to the position of the teeth as well as their colour. During this stage, patients also get the chance to see their new teeth before they are finalised.

The Final Appointment

A couple of days after your dental implants have been inserted with the all-on-four procedure, you will be able to return to our facility and get your permanent replacement teeth. Naturally, there are some things patients will need to avoid for a couple of weeks to ensure the dental implants do not get damages. These things will be discussed in more detail below.

What Should I Take into Account During Recovery?

Getting a dental implant treatment will require some recovery time afterwards, because no matter how straightforward the procedure may seem, it is still a surgical procedure that requires the patient to take some rest and recover.

During the first few days after the procedure, most patients experience common side-effects that usually accompany dental surgery; this includes swelling, bruising and general discomfort. Because of the fact that the area will be tender for a while, and the fact that the implants cannot be subjected to sudden shocks for at least a couple of weeks, patients will have to limit their foods to only soft foods. Hard foods could dislocate your dental implants and prevent them from fusing with the jawbone. In addition to that, eating foods that are too hard might actually be painful for the patient.

There are also certain things that could have a negative impact on your recovery, so it is only natural one should avoid such things. One bad lifestyle choice that could affect your recovery in a negative manner is smoking, because smokers have an increased chance of infection and a generally slower recovery process. Therefore, smokers should pack in this bad habit well before their dental implant procedure takes place.


Other things that could affect the effectiveness of your dental implant treatment include excessive alcohol consumption, poor nutrition and poor oral hygiene. For that reason, please ensure you enjoy proper nutrition and give your dental implants the attention they deserve and need.

To ensure your implants and replacement teeth stay in good condition for a long time to come, it is recommended to book a regular appointment with your dentist or dental hygienist. Patients tend to book the most appointments in the first year after obtaining their implants, mainly because they have additional questions about the care of their implants. However, make sure you visit your dental hygienist or dentist at least two times a year to keep your oral health in check, because complications as a result of poor oral hygiene could still cause your implants to fail.

Where Can I Get My Questions about All-On-Four Answered?
