Dental implants in Cary, NC

All-On-4 and TeethXpress are dental implant methods that offer patients a more permanent and hassle-free alternative to traditional dentures. Both All-On-4 and TeethXpress are very similar procedures in that they promise speed and efficiency for their patients. It’s important to remember that these methods are less about the materials (a lot of implant methods use the same materials) and more about how a doctor performs the procedure using particular techniques.

A few years ago, All-On-4 and TeethXpress were the only top-notch full-mouth dental implant options available. While these are still good options, there’s something much better now: Omega Teeth®. This revolutionary dental implant solution uses cutting-edge techniques and a fully-guided system that ensures not only speed but also safety and longevity.

How Omega Teeth® does implants differently

Methods like All-On-4 and TeethXpress advertise their speed but they can’t compare to Omega Teeth® in any category. The Omega Teeth® process is quicker (only a few hours), safer, and always yields better and more permanent results.

Patients who use All-On-4 and TeethXpress methods occasionally face complications with their implants later on. The biggest problem is the lack of stability. With All-On-4, the entire set of new teeth are held to the gums using only four implants. This means if one implant fails, the whole full-mouth procedure fails. Think of it as a table with four legs. If you remove one of the legs on a table, the table collapses.

At Stanley Dentistry, we don’t give patients a procedure that could end in even more stress for them. With Omega Teeth®, Dr. Rob considers every possible factor when deciding how many dental implants a patient needs. If for some reason, one of the implants does fail in an Omega Teeth® case (which is extremely rare), Dr. Rob can quickly fix the one implant without having to redo everything.

What does “fully-guided” mean?

At Stanley Dentistry, we have a commitment to service and quality. We are one of the only dentists in the Triangle that perform fully-guided dental implant surgeries, meaning we plan every aspect of your surgery beforehand, ensuring the optimal implant placement and bettering your success.

“Fully-guided” means we use 3D scans to create a custom guide for your implants. During the surgery, Dr. Rob places the guide inside the mouth, where the implants will go. Dr. Rob then uses the guide to ensure that the implants go exactly where they need to go. In implant surgeries, the most common reason for post-op problems is poor placement. With fully-guided implants, we eliminate the possibility of placement-related issues.

“Teeth in a Day” Dental Implant Options

While some other dentists may use your existing denture for the procedure, at Stanley Dentistry we create a custom prosthetic specially fitted to your implants. The custom prosthetic is longer-lasting and will improve the fit and feel of your new smile.

We don’t suggest using your existing denture because most dentures are made from acrylic — a more porous substance. Because acrylic is more porous, it absorbs smells from the foods you eat more easily and usually needs to be replaced in five to seven years. We use zirconium for our implants which is a ceramic material that does not absorb food or bacteria. Even in the face of poor hygiene, a zirconium implant will go on looking and feeling great for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions about

All-On-4 Dental Implants


Did you know?

Teeth supported by dental implants have been successful for hundreds of thousands of people. The number of patients with dental implants is growing rapidly due to their effectiveness, long-term durability and the high success rate.

What does All-on-4® mean?

All-on-4 is a term used to describe a dental implant procedure that uses four dental implants to support an upper and/or lower set of prosthetic teeth. Clinically, the All-on-4 and TeethXpress protocols are similar procedures.

How soon may I return to work after treatment?

Patients respond differently to medical and dental procedures. Many patients feel comfortable returning to work the next day, while others prefer to rest for a day or two before returning to work. Based on your specific needs, the office will give you a recommended time frame to resume your daily activities, including work.

What happens when wearing a conventional denture?

When a denture is worn for multiple years, the jawbone begins to shrink from a lack of stimulation that natural tooth roots or dental implants provide. Losing your teeth and wearing a denture will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small component that is positioned in the jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth. A crown can be attached and held in place by a single dental implant or a bridge may be attached to multiple dental implants. Your jawbone bonds to the dental implant to provide permanent support for crowns and bridges. Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement.

Is oral surgery painful?

At Stanley Dentistry, we pride ourselves on offering stress and pain-free oral surgery. For many of our surgeries, we use IV sedation so patients don’t feel or remember the procedure at all. When they wake up from surgery, we prescribe either prescription pain killers or over-the-counter drugs such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen to manage any discomfort.Compared to other parts of the body, the mouth heals incredibly quickly. Our patients usually only need a few days of recovery after oral surgery before they’re back in their normal routine.

Is oral surgery at Stanley Dentistry safe?

Our doctors complete oral surgeries every single day. With more than twenty-five years of experience, Dr. Bobbi and Dr. Rob know everything there is to know about surgical dentistry. They use state-of-the-art techniques and cutting-edge technology to ensure each and every patient’s safety. You can rest assured that at Stanley Dentistry, our doctors will do everything they can to make your experience as stress and pain-free as possible.
