All-On-Four Dental Implants Just a short time ago, if a dentist were to say "you can have brand new teeth in one day", well, quite simply, they'd be lying. What was nearly impossible just a few years ago is now a distinct reality thanks to advancements in implant dentistry. Dr. Khullar and his Dentalways team in Little Rock and North Little Rock can help you receive beautiful new teeth, in just one day! Improvements and advancements in implant technology and new protocols, allow for less invasive surgery without bone grafts. This results in the ability to replace missing or weakening teeth with tailored, handcrafted replacements in no time at all. When dealing with bone grafts, there is a delay of many months, before you can be fitted with replacement teeth. As a result, you would be subjected to enduring bad-fitting, temporary dentures - or even be toothless - while you wait. With this new procedure, Little Rock Implant Dentist Dr. Khullar can approve you for surgery and have your implants placed in mere hours. As with anything, there are unique obstacles that may prevent this from happening (certain dental or medical conditions), so our Dentalways team will talk over your options and your specific case with you thoroughly ahead of time. Dentalways offers Nobel Biocare Immediate Function procedures to replace your missing teeth with the All-on-4 implants procedure. With the Immediate Function procedures, a 3D CAT Scan is used with our Sirona XG3D Cat Scan machine. This offers us the advantage of using virtual planning software so we can plan the dental implant placement and facilitate the design of your final replacement teeth. What this means is that Dr. Khullar virtually places the implants on advanced software for implant placement planning and this allows for the implants to be exactly placed in 4 walls of bone and the size of the implant is correctly selected. It also allows Dr. Khullar to avoid vital structures like nerves and sinuses. All-on-4 procedure The Nobel Biocare All-on-4 Procedure is an Immediate Function protocol, attractive to those requiring full upper and/or lower restorations and for those currently wearing dentures. After your initial work-up, if you qualify for this procedure, you will get just four implants and a full set of new replacement teeth in just one appointment! All without bone grafts or sinus lifts, which is revolutionary. The single greatest advantage is how quickly your dentures can be replaced with permanent implant-supported bridges or dentures, resulting in fixed, non-removable new replacement teeth. Unlike other approaches that use six, eight, or even more implants and often involve bone grafting, Dr. Khullar uses this proven technique involving only four specially placed implants. Dentalways offers patients Immediate Function procedures when replacing one tooth, a few teeth or a full set of teeth. In a lot of cases, you'll receive your replacement teeth immediately after the placement of the implants. Compared to traditional treatment options, Dr. Khullar’s patients complete their implant treatment in less time and typically at less cost.

How it works Traditionally, restoring a full arch of teeth typically involved bone grafts, six or more implants and as many as 18-months of treatment. That means you would often go without any teeth or at the very least, an ill-fitting denture, for more than a year! With the All-on-4 procedure from Dentalways, you'll always leave with teeth! With the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure, you have one or two visits to our office to allow us to gather information for a treatment plan (e.g., CAT Scan, X-rays, impressions, photos). Following your initial consultation, you'll be scheduled for implant surgery and your new teeth are fitted and adjusted, all in one appointment (even when extractions are necessary). You'll arrive at our office in the morning with unhealthy - or NO - teeth, and you will leave in the afternoon with a beautiful, healthy set of functional and fixed teeth. You'll be required to return for an occasional check-up over the next few weeks. After almost six months, when the gums have fully healed and the implants are fused to the natural bone, we will take new impressions of your mouth and prepare a final, stronger, permanent set of teeth adjusted to a perfect fit–at no additional cost. This helps ensure your teeth will last for decades, and provide maximum beauty, function and support. ONE day, new smile As we mentioned, there was a time, not that long ago, when same-day teeth were a pipe dream. Not any more. The reality is, with all-on-four dental implants, you can show up in the morning to our Dentalways office in Little Rock or North Little Rock and leave, that very afternoon, with a beautiful, healthy, fixed smile. Change your life for the better with All-on-4 and call today for a free All-on-4 consultation.
