Remember all those old ads for denture adhesives. They all promised theirs was finally the product that would hold your dentures in place. The commercials ended with either a guy eating an apple or a woman working on an ear of corn. Smiles everywhere. Of course, we were all skeptical. In the back of your mind, you thought to yourself; I sure hope they come up with a better solution by the time I need new teeth. Well, they did.
All-On-Four, also called “Teeth-in-a-Day,” is that better solution. The first thing to know is you’ll come in once for a consultation and measurements. We’ll explain the advantages and answer all of your questions. Later, you’ll come back with your current teeth, and you’ll leave that same day with a perfect, all-new smile. It really is “teeth-in-a-day.” It’s a permanent solution that, unlike dentures, really will have you eating that apple.

Your Dental Specialties dentist will go over the potential drawbacks with you. This isn’t a one-size fit all kind of deal, so we consider this one-on-one consultation essential.
