In the past, if you were suffering from tooth loss, your only option was to have a custom denture or a bridge made to replace your missing teeth. With the development of dental implants, your options have expanded.

Rather than using a denture that sits over the gums and jaw, a dental implant uses an artificial tooth root that is placed directly into the jawbone for a strong and secure replacement.

All-On-4 Dental Implants vs. Dentures

Dental implants are permanent with no need for removal and can be used for patients who need a single tooth, several teeth, or a complete set of teeth replaced.
Since dental implants are permanent, you don’t have to worry about them slipping while you are eating or speaking like with dentures. Other benefits of dental implants include:
  • There is less impact on any surrounding teeth.
  • The implant will interact with your jawbone like a natural tooth. This can help prevent bone loss. Dentures can cause the loss of jawbone mass.
  • Dental implants typically last longer than dentures.
  • Dental implants are easier to care for. You care for them in the same way you would your natural teeth.
Dental implants also help you regain the ability to eat and speak properly and help you regain your confidence. With dental implants, you can bite into foods such as apples and corn on the cob easily without any worry that your dentures are going to slip or fall out.

With dental implants, you can also smile with confidence, knowing that your smile is secure. With dentures, you would have to worry about the denture moving, slipping, or possibly falling out, which can lead to embarrassing situations.

How Do All-On-4 Dental Implants Work?

All-on-4 dental implants are an innovative and long-lasting tooth replacement option. This system has four implants that are surgically placed into your jawbone using advanced digital technologies. On top of these four implants, a custom fixed prosthesis is placed to restore your smile.
