Teeth-in-a-Day is a dental implant and denture process that streamlines the usual dental implant process. Instead of removing the teeth, placing dental implants, designing the denture, then attaching the denture over several months, Teeth-in-a-Day can give you a perfect smile in one day. We immediately place a traditional, removable denture so our patients don’t spend months without their teeth. Once your smile has fully healed, we permanently attach the denture.
All-on-4® dental implants provide our clients with a minimally invasive method and an alternative to full-mouth dental implants. All-on-4® uses four implants to help support a full arch on the upper or lower jaw with non-removable teeth. This dental implant method allows our clients to have a beautiful smile and a complete set of teeth without having to go through multiple surgeries. All-on-4® and Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants allow our clients to receive the smile they’ve always wanted, all during one appointment at our Ladera Ranch implant dentistry practice.
Traditional dental implants can take up to four to nine months to fully complete, but Teeth-in-a-Day and All-on-4® will allow you to leave our dental office with a beautiful smile. Our friendly team of dental professionals will capture a CT scan of your jawbone to tell us where to place the implants. A non-removable appliance is placed over the implants to help provide reliable function. Once you receive your initial restoration, we will remove any damaged teeth, place dental implant posts, and position your temporary restoration. Once your implants heal, you will visit Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch, CA, one more time so we can place abutments, capture impressions, and create your final restoration.
The process may seem long or confusing, but our dental implants dentists will work with you one-on-one so you can understand every step of the process. Contact our office today to learn more about our Teeth-in-a-Day or All-on-4® dental implants or schedule an appointment or consultation.

Utilizing the Wand STA dental anesthesia device, the dentists at Hales Parker Dentistry are able to give possibly the most comfortable injection you’ve ever had. Without this pain-free dentistry practice, this is often the worst part of the procedure for many people who visit other dentists. With the dental anesthesia device, the injection is handled extremely gently and many times pain free.
Another advantage to dental anesthesia is that it can numb single teeth instead of getting a large portion of your jaw numb. Patients love when they leave our office and don’t have to worry about a numb lip or tongue. When single teeth need to be restored, just the target tooth can be numbed with the dental anesthesia wand.
Air abrasion is a tool used for cavities on the top of the tooth or shallow cavities.
When using air abrasion, anesthetic is not even necessary.
Using micro-particles and air, the cavity is removed without any pain sensation because there is no drill.
Air abrasion has many other benefits as well such as nearly doubling the bond strength of fillings and crowns in certain situations. This leads to stronger and longer lasting dentistry.
Your initial evaluation involves a sit-down with Dr. Parker and your patient concierge Kim. With modern technology, your initial examination is comfortable and easy. With a CBCT, we evaluate all of your anatomy and can begin to strategize rebuilding your teeth. With photos, we are able to assess the esthetic presentation you have and how to design a natural, full smile. Bring your questions and concerns to this appointment and we start the conversation so you know you are making the right decision for you.
This next visit is with our certified technician who will be making your teeth throughout the process. An initial try-in of teeth or measurements are made to ensure speech and esthetics will be ideal. A discussion on final esthetic outcomes such as color and shape will be had today. From here, the initial set of teeth will be made for the day of implant placement.
Today is the day for your new smile and teeth. We will be sedating you so you are comfortable throughout the procedure. We will remove anything that will impede your future health and function. Implants are placed and then the initial set of teeth are fixed to these implants.
At this visit, we will assess the healing, bite, and esthetics of the initial set of teeth. From here we are able to start the process of building the final set of teeth which will be of a much higher grade material and natural appearance. These final teeth are carefully crafted and designing them takes time to ensure longevity and ideal patient outcome.
The final teeth are completed and secured to your dental implants. From here, you walk out feeling and enjoying your new smile. Going forward, only periodic visits to ensure the health of the dental implants and cleanliness is maintained. With these new teeth, you are secure to eat and treat life like you used to without the worry of a smile that isn’t show-worthy or healthy.
Hales Parker Dentistry can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wished for through all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants. Do you want to feel happier, more comfortable, and overall confident? Let us help guide you in the right direction to replace a complete set of missing teeth. Your smile can be the first thing people notice about you so let’s make it the best it can be!
Many people may find themselves in a situation where most of their teeth have either fallen out or have been extracted due to dental problems. If this is your case, you may be looking to find tooth replacement options. We have good news! We offer many different treatments available to our patients with a variety of ways to replace teeth. However, if the majority of your teeth are missing on your top or bottom arches, you may be looking for a more natural solution such as an all on four or an all on six dental implants.
All-on-4 and all-on-6 implants have somewhat similar treatments. The phrase “all on” refers to the fact that all of your dentures will be attached to these implants. Both provide options for patients who lack multiple teeth. If the patient prefers all-on-4 or all-on-6 implants, the treatment is identical. It starts with implant placement, which will preserve structural integrity and support removable or fixed dentures. Although the implants will be surgically placed within two to three hours, the implants will need some time to integrate into the bone in your jaw. Temporary dentures will be placed during this time.
If the denture is removable it will need cleaning on a daily basis. If it is non-removable regular dental hygiene along with a waterpik is recommended. As is common with dental implants, the full-bridge of teeth can be cared for in much the same way as your original teeth.
The clearest distinction between all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants is the number of implants in the mouth. Our expert implant dentists recommend the all-on-6 dental technique offering a more secure foundation for the prosthetic dental arch, resulting in a longer-lasting, more relaxed smile. Taking into account the mechanisms of biting and chewing, additional flexibility and a more even pressure distribution can help to prolong the life of your prosthetic arch.
Although both treatments are identical to each other and appear to produce similar outcomes in general, there are several variations between the techniques that may cause our expert implant dentist to direct you towards one rather than the other. The reasons for choosing one over the other will be discussed at your consultation before the implant surgery takes place.
Just like regular dental implants, any adult who is healthy enough to undergo dental or oral surgery can receive all-on-4 or all-on-6 implants! Overall eligibility for these specific implants will depend on the dentist’s discretion. The patient’s health history is also taken into consideration. If the patient has a history of uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, blood clotting disorders, drug abuse, smoking, or any immune system problems, they may not be considered for this type of surgery. But don’t worry, there are always other options!
Hales Parker Dentistry is the leading implant expert in southern California, we will help you throughout the entire process! Helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wished for through all on four and all on six dental implants. Feeling happier, more comfortable, and overall confident? We will guide you in the right direction to replace a complete set of missing teeth.
All-on-4 or all-on-6 implants have advantages over a full set of individual dental implants. These implants:
· Can be placed and restored in as little as one day in ideal conditions
· Only require 4 or 6 implants per arch
· Feel & function like natural teeth
· Fixed into place
· Allow patients to eat the food they desire
· Preserve facial structure
· Are a long-term solution
Our expert implant dentist will make a decision following a detailed assessment and study of your overall health condition, checking x-rays and CT scans, and full dental histories. Custom dentures will be created that will match your jawbone and a temporary denture will be attached on the day of the procedure. Usually, multiple implants take approximately two or more hours to complete under general anesthesia.
The average cost for all-on-4 dental implants is around $12,000 to $35,000 per arch. The average cost for all-on 6 dental implants is several thousand dollars more than the all on four implants. The pricing on dental implants truly depends on our expert implant doctor recommendation, the procedure, and the patient’s health.
The prosthesis that is attached to all-on-4 implants can last at least 10 to 15 years with careful treatment and healthy oral hygiene habits.
These implants offer complete comfort mainly because they do not add pressure on your gums. You take care of them the same way as your natural teeth, and they work the same way as far as eating and chewing.
You can expect your mouth, throat, and jaw to be sore anywhere from a few days up to about two weeks after surgery. Because of this, eating can be uncomfortable or difficult which is why it’s recommended to stick to a liquid, or soft diet during this time. Any inflammation or pain will eventually subside. Analgesics will be subscribed by our expert implant dentist.
In implant placement, our expert implant dentist may choose to cover the implants with your existing gum tissue or place a healing collar on the implant and secure the gum tissue around it.
