People, who still use complete dentures with acrylic (plastic) palate typically experience no taste and swallow large pieces of food with insufficient chewing. Moreover, they do not have a sense of temperature of foods they consume, which can leads to stomach problems. All above-mentioned problems can immediately be resolved by a miraculous one-day procedure.
Advances in dental medicine developed a modern and contemporary technique ALL-ON-4, also known as “Teeth in one day.” The ALL-ON-4 concept is addressed to patients of all ages, even with significant loss of teeth and bone loss. The phenomenon of ALL-ON-4 consists of four titanium implants (bone screws), which support the hybrid denture (ALL-ON-4 bridge) infinitely. The concept of ALL-ON-4 is based on a same-day screw-retained replacement for the entire upper and/or lower arch of teeth.

"Just had 2 of my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Bart Nierzwicki! His assistant, Patrycia Strama, guided me step by step with what medication I needed to take after the extractions. She was great at answering any questions I had and is an overall outstanding assistant! Dr. Bart Nierzwicki had definitely made me feel comfortable and 100% numb before starting the procedure. He is a wonderful surgeon!! Millennium Surgical and staff is very professional! The first time I walked into Millennium Surgical, I felt at home and the staff makes you feel welcome and always greets patients with a warm smile. I will be coming very soon to extract my next 2 wisdom teeth. I highly recommend Dr. Bart Nierzwicki for any oral procedure/surgery.??"- M.M. / Facebook / Apr 20, 2017

Reasons for Treatment
Patients ask for the All-On-4 bridge for:
- A better-looking smile
- More functionality to the teeth
- The ability to brush the teeth instead of soaking a prosthetic
- No creams, pastes, or gels
- Quicker treatment time
- No accidental movement while talking, singing, laughing, and eating
During the Procedure
At your consultation, we will take a 3d scan of your jaws to determine the best course of action in the placement of the implants. During the surgery, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon will insert the needed implants in the upper and/or lower jaw, respectively. You will go home with a temporary fixed bridge and the implants will need to bond to the jaw bone for 2 – 6 months. After the surgeon sees that the implants are secure, then the new bridge is ready to be placed. The All-On-4 bridge will be screwed into the anchors in the jaw.
The method of permanently securing an entire dental arch to implants (ALL-ON-4) eliminates the problems with chewing, speech disturbances or irritation, and prevents bone loss.Patients who choose the hybrid bridge supported by implants do not need to worry about their denture falling out. This solution also improves the esthetics of the face – it helps eliminate wrinkles around lips and collapsing cheeks. It gives the patients confidence and boosts their self-esteem. Above all, patients are satisfied with their new smile.
An All-On-4 implant bridge should be regarded like natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. We advise that patients continue with annual routine dental exams and cleanings at the primary dentist's office to maximize the benefits.
