All-On-4 Dental Implants Indianapolis
Dr. Lawrence G. Falender of Falender Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center offers Truly Life Changing (TLC) solutions to the problems posed by dentures, missing teeth and failing teeth.
The All-on-4 is a revolutionary approach for patients who have lost, or are in the process of losing, all their teeth. With the All-on-4 same day solution you’ll be able to eat and chew whatever you like, just as if you had natural, healthy teeth. We can restore the look, strength and function of natural teeth in one day!Unlike dentures, the All-on-4 is fixed in place in your mouth using four Nobel Biocare dental implants. With the All-on-4, your set of beautiful new teeth is attached to the dental implants. The teeth can only be removed by your dentist. A few short years ago, a permanent solution for an arch of upper or lower missing teeth required six or more dental implants and often required a year or more of healing. This meant wearing an uncomfortable denture during the entire treatment. With the All-on-4 same day solution, you can have an interim set of implant-supported teeth the same day, so you never go without.
With All-on-4 Dental Implants, you can have a new set of permanent teeth while you sleep in just one day.
- With the All-on-4 dental implants procedure, the patient has one or two visits to the offices of the Falender Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center to allow Dr. Falender to gather information for a comprehensive treatment plan. The records that are gathered in order to formulate a treatment plan will include a 3D CT Scan, X-Rays, jaw relation records, impressions and photos.
- Following this consultation, the patient is scheduled for surgery implantation and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted, all in one appointment while the patient sleeps comfortably under in-office sedation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Regarding the All-on-4™ Treatment Concept
Q: What is the All-on-4 and why is it so popular?
A: The All-on-4® treatment concept is used to secure a permanent denture in a patient’s mouth. It utilizes usually 4 implants, avoiding expensive and complicated bone grafting procedures. Dr. Falender removes the bad teeth, places the implants and prepares a high quality temporary that is secured into the implants. This can all be done with IV sedation in the comfort of our in-office surgery suite. With an experienced All-on-4 surgeon, the results are immediate! Then four months later, working with your general dentist, a final processed prosthesis is made and delivered to you. The look and feel is natural and restores you to a healthy smile. The costs and time involved are significantly less than other permanent options.
Q. My dentist recommended a removable partial denture for now and then a full denture in a few years. I really don’t want anything removable in my mouth. Does this make sense?
A: Many of our patients come to us with a deteriorating dentition (teeth) and they are unhappy with the look of their smile and do not want to go from bridgework and crowns to any type of removable appliance. The beauty of the All-on-4 treatment concept is that your new smile looks fantastic and natural. No taking anything in and out of your mouth, no messy adhesive precuts, no losing your removable appliance (denture or partial denture) because All-on-4 prosthesis is secured into the implants.
Q. I’ve been told by other dentists that I do not have enough bone to have implants and I need a significant amount of bone grafting. How do I know I have enough bone for this procedure?
A. A great thing about the All-on-4® treatment is that it can be utilized for patients with minimal bone. Because the back implants are tilted to the posterior, anatomic areas, such as nerve (lower jaw) and sinus (upper jaw) can be avoided. In addition, because of the increased bone to implant contact, the All-on-4 can be used for bone heights as low as 8mm in the mandible (lower jaw) and 10 mm in the maxilla (upper jaw).
Q. I went to another surgeon who wanted to do major sinus grafting and place 8 implants. The whole process was going to be a year or more and cost over $40, 000 for just my upper jaw. How Is the All-on-4 different?
A. Quite simply, the All-on-4 treatment avoids major grafting procedures, only needs four implants, costs half as much and the patient leaves the surgery with a beautiful temporary denture secured into the mouth. So; less surgery, less cost and immediate results.
Q. What does Teeth–in–a–Day really mean?
A. While some doctors advertise meet, greet and surgery in one day, this is unrealistic and may be dangerous. After a proper workup and thorough planning, we can schedule surgery to remove the bad teeth, if necessary, place the implants and secure a non-removable denture all in the same day. Approximately, four months later the permanent prosthesis is made that looks, feels and functions like natural teeth. Many patients have felt the results were Truly Life Changing!
