Teeth-in- A- Day: All-on-Four
A new set of fixed teeth in just a few hours – now there’s something to put the grin back on your face!
Smile, laugh and eat the things you love with our all-on-four treatment, a technique placing an entire row of fully functioning replacement gnashers via just four (or six) implants. What’s more, you’ll be able to go home the same day, since Teeth-in-a-Day can be completed in an afternoon.
This highly popular same-day teeth solution replaces a whole arch of teeth, from the low or upper jaw or both. (For the avoidance of doubt, by the way, the arch is the curved structure housing your teeth and comprising gum and bone.) So Teeth-in-A-Day offers a groundbreaking way of replacing a whole arch of your mouth.
Regain your confidence and talk, eat and live life to the full with this treatment if you have experienced complete tooth loss.You may benefit from all-on-4 (6) treatment if:
How does it work?
The first step is a full assessment of your mouth and the current state of your teeth, to see whether you are suitable candidate for teeth-in-a-day treatment. Your dentist should talk you through your options – this is also a good time to ask any questions you may have. You will then be able to make your own decision with all the information to hand, and without feeling rushed.
Should you opt to proceed, initially your dentist will remove any loose or damaged teeth.
The next stage is to place four or six dental implants in the jawbone, where they serve as ‘roots’. A dental technician will create bespoke, lab-made teeth that are the perfect match for the colour, shape and size of your own teeth. These are fixed firmly in place to the new implants on the same day.
You’ll then need to give your mouth three to six months to heal, before you return to the practice a few more times for the final bridge. We’ll review how your teeth are looking, make impressions and you’ll try out the results before you leave the practice with your shiny new permanent teeth!

The All-on-4 (6) solution helps to preserve the jawbone and avoid further damage to the structure of the face that can be associated with missing teeth.
