Central Park West Dentistry is excited to be working with expert provider Dr. E. Robert Wardius to give our patients in New York the option of this groundbreaking improvement in modern dentistry. It’s called an “All-on-4” because it can restore all of your teeth with just four dental implants. The implants support an entire prosthetic arch of teeth, providing a comfortable and durable permanent alternative to dentures. All-on-4 is essentially the same idea as an “implant-supported fixed denture” “permanent denture” or “teeth in a day.” It can be a truly life-changing opportunity.
Here’s an actual email the Central Park West Dentistry team received from a grateful patient who recently saw Dr. Wardius for an All-on-4.
“Words can’t describe how I feel. As you know, I was quite nervous about the procedure and found in Rob [Dr. Wardius] a professional who engendered a unique combination of compassion and care that I have never experienced.The procedure was executed flawlessly. The entire office staff was attentive and professional. Rob was totally focused and I felt no hesitation at the last minute. The post-op was a bit uncomfortable the first 2 days, however, Rob was in constant touch which meant a lot to me.
Each day brings new experiences for me. I have a heightened sense of self-esteem, am smiling more often, and importantly, find myself TRYING to smile! To say this is a life-changing event would be an understatement. I will forever be grateful to the entire team at CPW Dentistry…I couldn’t be more delighted with the results.”
It doesn’t matter why you want a fresh start. Maybe you were in an accident, missed years of dental check-ups, or were simply born to periodontal disease…whatever the reason, the important thing is that we can help you move forward. And we can do it without years of ongoing dental work.
Some offices call the All-on-4 procedure “Teeth in a Day” but we know that’s not 100% accurate. The whole process takes just a handful of office visits with Dr. Wardius. We provide options to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment, including IV sedation with a board-certified dental anesthesiologist.
You can have one arch, or two arches, depending on your unique treatment needs.
All-on-4 is a wonderful alternative to dentures because it offers a more comfortable and more secure arch of teeth. Before the invention of the All-on-4, an implant-based alternative to traditional dentures would require six or more implants and up to eighteen months of treatment. Often, this meant you would be stuck without any teeth or with a poorly fitting temporary denture for over a year as you waited for implants to heal or moved from doctor to doctor. The All-on-4 changed all that. Now, Dr. Wardius can place implants at an angle that allows them to immediately support a full arch of teeth on the same day.
Dr. Wardius has provided All-on-4 treatments for hundreds of patients over the last fifteen years. He’s a gentle perfectionist, and he’ll be overseeing every step of your treatment to ensure each aspect is up to his standards. At many offices, you’d see different providers for different parts of the All-on-4 treatment. Because Dr. Wardius is able to both place and restore implants, you know you’ll be in his capable hands throughout your care. You’ll have a relaxed, comfortable, and totally personalized experience. In fact, on the day of your main treatment visit, you’ll be the only patient in the whole office, which guarantees you’ll have all the undivided attention you need.
In most cases, Dr. Wardius uses a combination of Neodent and Nobel Biocare implants but you can always ask him for the details of your specific treatment. Neodent was founded in 1993, and has over 20-year experience in the design, development, and manufacture of dental implants. Every year, Neodent implants are chosen by more than 45,000 customers in over 40 countries. Nobel Biocare has been a leader in the field of implant-based dental solutions since 1952, and the company is committed to the highest scientific standard.
You could benefit from an All-on-4 if you’re missing many teeth and looking for a better alternative to dentures, or if you have extensive treatment needs that would require months of appointments and a substantial investment. All-on-4 is also a life-changing option if you’ve found yourself in a seemingly never ending cycle root canals, crowns, bridges, fillings, etc and would like to finally be free from treatment.
Instead of struggling with dentures, or going through multiple procedures, you can have a totally fresh start in just a few easy visits. There are lots of different reasons to want a clean slate. Dr. Wardius has helped people who:
1) First Visit | Consultation. You’ll get to meet Dr. Wardius for a complimentary consultation. He’ll chat with about your dental history and create a custom treatment plan for you: all in a judgment-free environment. This relaxed visit will last about an hour, so there will be plenty of time for questions. If you decide to move forward with treatment, we’ll take some photographs, painless impressions, and x-rays of your teeth. We call this part “records.”
2) Two weeks later | Main treatment visit. This is the big day! You’ll come to the office in the morning with whatever dental problems you’ve been struggling with, and leave in the afternoon with beautiful, functional teeth. In this single appointment, Dr. Wardius will remove any damaged teeth, place a few dental implants, and securely attach a completely natural-looking temporary acrylic restoration. This can be done for your upper arch, your lower arch, or both arches simultaneously. One of the benefits of the procedure is that you’re comfortable the entire time. With IV sedation with Dr. Joseph, you’ll be in a relaxed, dream-like state, and wake up with new teeth. After treatment, you’ll feel very little temporary sensitivity related to the placement of implants.
3) Two weeks later | Post-op visit. Dr. Wardius will check-in with you to make sure you’re healing well. Personalized care at every step of the way is a hallmark of treatment at CPW Dentistry. At this point, Dr. Wardius will take additional molds of your teeth so he can start making your permanent.
4) Three to six months later | Permanent arch visit. The healing process is complete, and it’s time to come pick-up your permanent, metal-reinforced arch of teeth. After this visit, you’ll be able to eat all the foods you love again.
During the course of your treatment, you’ll have a temporary arch and then a permanent arch. Both arches are very natural looking. The temporary arch is made entirely out of acrylic. The permanent arch is made of either acrylic reinforced by metal or a durable material called Zirconia. Dr. Wardius can go over these options with you in detail.
Not quite. The All-on-4 is unique because just four implants can immediately support a full arch of teeth. However, it takes about three months for the implants to heal completely. During those three months, you’ll need to cut all of your food with a fork. You’ll be able to eat most things, but you’ll need to be gentle. Once everything is healed and you have your permanent arch then you’ll be able to enjoy food the way you used to.
While Dr. Wardius will work with you to find the best treatment plan for you, in general, it’s best to do them both at the same time. Completing treatment on both arches at the same time allows Dr. Wardius to have the most control over the alignment of your bite. It’s also cost-effective because our anesthesiologist only needs to make one visit.
All-on-4 smile restoration is an investment, but the results are life-changing. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Wardius will evaluate your unique treatment needs to provide you with a transparent and accurate estimate based on your specific situation. It’s difficult to quote a fee before we meet you, since everyone’s situation is different. The final fee depends on whether you need upper and/or lower teeth replaced, the complexity of surgery, the quality of your bone, the materials you select to make the permanent teeth, and other various factors that are unique to your case.
For your convenience, we offer a variety of flexible payment options like interest-free financing through The Lending Club and Care Credit. These loans let you break down the fee into more manageable monthly payments, without needing to pay back lots of interest. We recognize that All-on-4 is a sizable investment, and we want people to have access to this life-changing treatment. That’s why we’re committed to offering financing options.
Our experienced financial coordinators will work with you and your personal budget to come up with a plan. Many of our patients use a combination of savings, health savings accounts, and financing.
Do you want to walk into our office in the morning, leave behind whatever dental curve-balls life threw your way, and walk out of the office in the afternoon with a new set of beautiful, fixed, functional teeth? If the answer is yes, please reach out to us for a no-charge consultation with Dr. Wardius.
