The industry leading All-On-4 “Teeth in a day” is quickly becoming the procedure of choice for patients in need of dental implants. The popular treatment is frequently advertised, but often misunderstood. Simply said, the All-On-4 procedure offers a full set of upper or lower teeth using just four dental implants, and is complete in one day.
The procedure is the optimal solution for providing a full fixed bridge for patients missing the majority of their teeth. It is a graftless procedure that utilizes the patient’s’ existing bone and a technique which tilts the posterior implants to avoid the need for a bone graft, making it a more comfortable and less invasive procedure than traditional implants. Dr. Aalam has been performing the treatment for over a decade and was trained in Portugal by Dr. Paolo Malo, the founder of the All-On-4 technique. We work closely with patients to determine whether they are a candidate for the procedure, and strive to provide a seamless experience where patients are confident with our work and satisfied with their results.

The revolutionary treatment allows patients to leave with a complete set of teeth on the same day as the procedure, hence the name “teeth in a day”. Depending on each patients’ unique needs, four to six implants are placed in the upper and lower parts of the mouth. If any extractions are necessary, these are also completed on the same day. A temporary full fixed bridge is fastened to the implants, which act and function like normal teeth. The patient will then wait 8-12 weeks, allowing the gums to properly heal and the patient to adjust to a comfortable bite and ability to chew. After 12 weeks, a general dentist will create and affix a permanent set of teeth made of acrylic or zirconium to the implants.
This patient came in with extreme periodontal disease that caused his teeth to decay and fall out. Periodontal disease begins as an inflammation of the gums, caused by the bacteria found in plaque buildup that causes initial swelling, discomfort and bleeding when brushing and flossing. When left untreated, the bacteria will continue spreading beyond the gum line, causing tissue damage, bone loss, decay, and can eventually cause teeth to fall out. After a thorough analysis of his case, we decided we could transform his smile and restore his confidence with the All-On-4 treatment method!
The All-On-4 teeth in a day treatment is the ideal solution for patients missing all or the majority of their teeth. The innovative treatment provides patients with a fully functioning set of upper or lower teeth, using a minimum of four implants, in just one day! This unique treatment offers patients a graftless solution, as it utilizes the patients’ existing bone, avoiding the need for a bone graft for a more comfortable and less invasive solution than traditional implants.
In this patient’s case, his top teeth were so damaged from periodontal disease and were not savable, so we first had to extract them all. After extracting the teeth, we placed the permanent dental implants, which replace his extracted tooth roots and serve as the foundation for the permanent restoration. Dr. Yeung created the permanent restoration, which is a full fixed arch prosthesis, that looks, feels and functions just like real teeth.
Thanks to this cutting-edge treatment, we restored this patient’s oral health, transformed his smile, and helped him smile confidently once again!
Dr. Aalam & Dr. Krivitsky recommend only consuming soft, room temperature foods and drinks for 48 hours after your All-on-4 procedure
The All-On-4 treatment is a revolutionary procedure that must be completed by a highly-trained and skilled oral surgeon. It requires the complete and thorough understanding of the surgical, as well as the restorative, aspect of the treatment to make sure it will be successful.
Make sure that your provider is a fully certified specialist and has been properly trained in that technique.
Dr. Aalam was proudly trained in Portugal by Dr. Paolo Malo, founder of the All-on-4 technique, and has been performing this treatment for more than ten years in Los Angeles.
You won’t! Because dental implants and the temporary restorations are placed on the same day in most cases. Patient’s leave their appointment with a fully functioning temporary set of teeth, that look, feel and function like permanent teeth. Patient’s love the All-on-4 treatment because they leave the office with a beautiful smile, allowing them to go about their daily lives with comfort, ease and without disruption. After the mouth and gums fully heal, usually a 3-6 month process, patients return to receive their permanent restorations.
The treatment is actually minimally invasive as it typically requires only four to six dental implants in each jaw to support your entire new set of teeth. Further, because the procedure employs a unique technique that tilts the posterior implants to utilize the patient’s existing jawbone, many patients do not require bone grafting.
