This expanded single-day implant program from Anacapa Dental Art Institute helps patients to minimize time spent without their teeth and pain during the implant procedure, by combining sedation options with their All-on-4 dental implants.

The announced procedure is performed by Dr. Jivraj, the founder of the Anacapa Dental Art Institute, who is known for teaching the technique in seminars around the world. Using the All-on-4 plus protocol, Dr. Jivraj can provide a complete set of functioning teeth in a single day, using only 4-6 implanted posts instead of the usual 8 – 10.
Unlike traditional dental implants, the All-on-4 procedure allows patients to wear their teeth immediately, eliminating any time they would have otherwise spent without any teeth. While the initial set of teeth provided is not the final set, they are built to look natural and chew efficiently, while patients wait for their finalized dentures.
While implanted teeth often require bone grafts for additional strength, using the new technique, Dr. Jivraj eliminates the need for bone grafts entirely without compromising the strength of the implant. To accomplish this, each implant is placed at a precise angle, to provide maximum stability.
In most cases, the All-on-4 procedure requires no more than 4 implants, but this can vary from one patient to the next. In situations requiring additional implants, Dr. Jivraj will place as many as required at no additional cost.
Patients can access either gentle oral sedation that will allow them to remain awake and aware during their procedure while feeling no pain or anxiety, or general anesthesia if they wish to sleep through the entire process. All sedation options are administered by trained and licensed staff, and patients will be monitored throughout their operation.
Though sedation options are most often used for extensive procedures, they are also available for patients that have anxiety, dental phobias, or concerns about dental pain. Patients are encouraged to discuss any sedation requirements with the Anacapa Dental Art Institute staff when scheduling their appointment.
One satisfied patient said, “I have been here for over 3 years and have nothing but good things to say. They are very accommodating with the schedules, always set me up with my next appt, and are super friendly. My son loves visiting the office as well. He is 10 and loves how gentle they are with their cleanings.”
