All-on-4 / Implant-Supported Teeth/ Teeth in a Day

dental implant elk grove village il The Dental Implant Process

Many patients wonder if the surgical placement of a dental implant hurts.  Dr. Advani will give you local anesthetic and make sure the area is very numb before starting the procedure.  Once the area is numb, no pain or sharpness will be felt.  There is only slight pressure that's felt during the procedure.  Most patients don't feel anything and don't even realize the implant has been placed when the procedure is over.

A Quick, Pain-Free Procedure

The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour and that includes the post-op instructions.  A prescription may be given after the procedure, but most patients typically only need over-the-counter Tylenol or Advil for the first 1-2 days after the procedure.

A very common question that we get from patients is "What is the cost of an All-on-4 (All-on-X, Teeth-in-a-day, Same-day teeth, Same-day dental implants)?"  

The cost for the procedure ranges from $13,000-17,500 for 1 arch (top OR bottom) at Elk Grove Smile Center.  Most dental implant centers will charge anywhere from $20,000-30,000 for 1 arch.  

The cost varies from $13,000-17,500 based on the permanent material of the bridge chosen after full healing is completed.  The strongest material, which is called zirconia, is recommended.  The best permanent material is based on each individual patient and if a patient already has an opposing denture, then the strongest material may not be needed since less force is being placed on the implant bridge, which thus saves on costs.

Dr. Advani is able to offer a much lower price compared to other implant centers because our office has invested in state-of-the-art equipment, which allows fabrication of the permanent bridge using a 3D milling machine, which uses the strongest materials to make your bridge.  

All the steps, from start-to-finish, are completed by Dr. Vishal Advani over a 4-6 month span.  The first step involves the removal of the teeth, placement of 4 dental implants, bone grafting and the placement of the temporary bridge all on the same day.  After healing of the bone is completed over 3-5 months, an impression of the healed implants is done and a new, stronger, permanent bridge is attached.  All of these steps are completed by Dr. Advani at our Elk Grove Village location.  

We offer a Free Consultation with Dr. Vishal Advani to discuss your implant needs.  Call our office at 847-437-3250 or you can email elkgrovesmilecenter@gmail.com to schedule your free consultation. 

implant dentist elk grove village | cost dentures elk grove villageThese days, you have several options available to replace missing teeth. Two of the most popular options are dental implants and dentures.

Dentures vs. Dental Implants

These two systems work in very different ways. Dentures are a removable option that can replace all of your teeth (complete dentures) or some of your teeth (partial dentures). Dental implants can replace as many teeth as you like and are a permanent option that you care for just like you would your own teeth.

Patients are often concerned about the cost of replacing missing teeth and may find themselves gravitating toward the cheaper cost of dentures without really considering all the benefits of dental implants. While this is understandable, we do urge you to think of dental implants as an investment in your future dental health.

Unlike dentures, dental implants actually become a part of your mouth. The metal part of the implant is surgically placed directly into your jaw bone, where it eventually integrates with the bone.

Cost and Process of Dental Implants

This process is important because it provides implants with their key advantage over all other types of tooth replacement options; namely, that dental implants help to preserve precious dental bone.

If cost is still an issue, we can discuss a combination of these two options called implant-retained dentures, in which the dentures are securely held in place using strategically placed dental implants.

Insurance for Implants | Elk Grove Smile CenterMost dental insurances will pay for a portion of dental implants and the crown or bridge that attaches to the implants.  Typically, insurances cover 50% of the cost of dental implants.
