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.

"I came to Millenium Surgical to get my wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Nierzwicki was great and made me feel very comfortable being put to sleep with anesthesia. Not only did that, but he took the time to explain all my options and then the entire procedure and answer ALL of my questions before hand. After the procedure, Dr. Nierzwicki called to check up and see how I was feeling. I felt so at ease from start to finish during the entire processes. The entire staff was very kind and helpful, from Kenya to Maggie. Highly recommend!!"- S.S. / Facebook / Sep 07, 2017
"I was referred by a friend to Dr. Cienawa who then referred me to Dr. Bart - the same day - to have my two bottom wisdom teeth removed. As I have never had even a stitch before in my life, I was nervous about being put to sleep, etc. (especially after the horror stories everyone tell you about getting their wisdom teeth removed!). Dr. Bart led the consultation along with Kenia and went over other options where I could stay awake. Honestly, I think that took more time than the... actual extraction itself! The consultation was thorough and helpful, so when I made the decision it was all green lights. I was truly taken care of - and last minute, which I so appreciate, and was able to not be put to sleep, and still be pain free. I appreciate also the woman who walked me through the billing process and (this is on my insurance more than the practice) while it was a hefty upfront cost, I am pleased with the decision I made (they even gave me a shirt!) because I was able to still enjoy my Labor Day weekend up in Michigan! I would highly recommend this place due to the professional demeanor of the office, the staff, and the doctor. Thank you!"- J.W. / Facebook / Sep 05, 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.
