Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day: Dental Implant Benefits
Eat your favourite foods again!
When was the last time you were able to bite into a crisp apple, or dig into a juicy steak? If you wear dentures, then the answer is probably not for a long, long time. With SecondSmile’s Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day dental implant solution, you can enjoy all of your favourite foods again. Most denture wearers desperately search through restaurant menus thinking “What can I eat tonight?” With stable and secure permanent teeth that do not move, you simply say “What do I want to eat tonight?”
There are few things more embarrassing than having your dentures flop out of your mouth while speaking to someone else. But that is precisely what many people who wear dentures are concerned about every time they open their mouths. Not anymore! With SecondSmile’s Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day dental implant solution, denture wearers can enjoy the freedom and confidence of having completely stable and secure teeth. With a beautiful set of teeth attached to implants, you will have the confidence and freedom to enjoy any social activity you desire. Never worry about loose dentures again!
More affordable than ever before!
Thanks to the latest in dental implant technology, permanent teeth have never been more affordable. Using a procedure called All-on-4™, our qualified teams of denturists and dental surgeons place a permanent set of teeth on only four implants per arch. Conventional dental implant procedures typically require anywhere from six to twelve implants per arch. Fewer implants means reduced cost and time, and the savings are passed on to you, the patient!
Quicker procedure & recovery time!
Many people who wear dentures are concerned with the amount of time it takes for the dental implant procedure itself, along with the time required for recovery. Conventional dental implant procedures can require many appointments, and many hours of long surgical procedures. Also, recovery from conventional dental implants can take weeks, months and even years. With SecondSmile’s Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day solution, the procedure takes just one day (instead of multiple appointments), and patients can eat anything they want immediately following the procedure!
No invasive bone-grafting!
Conventional dental implant treatments often require additional surgeries to add bone to a patient’s jaw to ensure enough bone is available to hold the dental implants. These additional surgeries can include bone-grafting and sinus-lifting, both of which are quite invasive and can be very painful to endure. Fortunately, with SecondSmile’s Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day dental implant solution, the likelihood of a patient requiring bone-grafting or sinus-lifting is significantly reduced. In fact, the vast majority of our patients do not require these invasive procedures at all!
What is Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day?
Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day is the ultimate dental implant solution for denture wearers. Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day is exactly as the name describes: permanent, non-removable teeth in just one day. This innovative solution is made possible through the use of a technology called All-on-4™, a simplified treatment concept that provides:
- Permanent, Non-removable Teeth (imagine never taking your teeth out again)
- Predictable Aesthetics (beautiful looking teeth)
- Full and Immediate Functionality (eat whatever you want from day one)
- In One Day!
- Without the need for bone-grafting in most cases. (no grafting of bone from your hip or chin)
The All-on-4™ technique allows for the placement of a complete arch of permanent teeth on just four* dental implants. The implants are placed at angles to utilize the best available bone. Prior to the development of All-on-4™, patients often had to endure many long, uncomfortable and expensive procedures, such as bone-grafting, to ensure that enough bone was available to integrate with their implants. With All-on-4™, there is far less likelihood of requiring any bone-grafting at all. Best of all, this all happens for you in just one day!
*Occasionally, five implants are required.
"When my dentist told me about 'SecondSmile' permanent dental implant All-on-4™ procedure, I was a little hesitant. Going to the dentist has always concerned me because of the pain. But at SecondSmile, I couldn't believe it – there was no pain at all! ..."
"My removable denture was so uncomfortable. I couldn’t taste my favourite foods, and I always felt very self-conscious when going out to social occasions. When I first heard about permanent dental implant All-on-4™ procedure, I was a little hesitant. Going to the dentist has always concerned me because of the pain. But with Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day, I couldn’t believe it – there was no pain at all! I was amazed. Now my life has truly changed. My new teeth feel so natural, and so comfortable – like they were there all along. I can now enjoy all of those foods that I couldn’t taste before. This really is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I still can’t believe it. I’ve told everyone I know about this. And frankly, my great looking smile is just a bonus. The real gift is how I feel inside."

"I had my teeth removed years ago, and was wearing removable dentures for a long time. Although they were good dentures, they would slip and were ill-fitting, and needed dental paste. I still found they were uncomfortable. All sorts of nasty little things would happen with them all the time. I simply decided that I needed to find a different solution, so I went to my denturist. He recommended the All-on-4™ treatment. I had looked into dental implants previously, but this was the only one that could be done in one day. I had the All-on-4™ procedure completed on both my upper and lower jaws, all in just one day! After the procedure I was eating regular food almost immediately! I certainly feel better about my looks, and I feel better about my smile. I can chew an awful lot better than before. I was visiting my mother at an assisted living home, and she was telling all of her friends that I had a better smile than I did before, and she made me show it off. My overall experience was excellent. Everyone related to this process did a fantastic job. I’m very happy with everything that was done for me. I love my new smile!"- Werner Funkenhauser, Toronto, Ontario
"I had been living with a partial denture, but I hated it. Food would get stuck underneath, and I’d be embarrassed to smile. I just wasn’t comfortable smiling or talking in public. My hand automatically covered my mouth when I would laugh. It certainly had an impact on my self-confidence. My experience was fantastic. The staff was so nice, and I could tell that they truly had my best interest at heart. Even better, I really did not have any pain at all! I still can’t believe it. People noticed right away that I looked better, but they didn’t know why. Our son’s wedding was one month after my surgery, and I received nothing but compliments. People thought I was twenty years younger than my actual age! I am looking forward to not worrying about dental work. It is wonderful to be able to smile naturally again! I have not felt this happy and confident in a long, long time. The whole experience was wonderful; better than I could’ve hoped for. To anyone who is thinking about this – go for it! You will never regret it."

"Living with dentures really affected my lifestyle. For starters, I couldn’t really laugh. At least not in public. I didn’t want to open my mouth, because I thought that other people could see an upper palate. It was a phobia. I travel a lot, and I was always concerned. Swimming in the ocean, for example… A wave hits you, your dentures flop out. I was worried I was going to lose them! But since having the Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day treatment, my life has truly changed. Now, I get up in the morning, and I brush my teeth like a normal person. I don’t have to take my teeth out anymore. I was amazed at how easy the whole procedure was. I was eating the same day, which was fantastic! I’ve had my new teeth for a couple of weeks now, and I almost feel bionic. Honestly, my teeth are so strong, I think I can eat a door!
