If you have lost all or most of your teeth on your lower or upper arch, you may have heard of All-on-4 dental implants. This convenient tooth replacement system combines the efficiency and reliability of implants with the convenience of dentures. But, is this revolutionary system the right choice for you, or should you stick with traditional dentures? It’s important to consult with your dentist regarding this important choice, but you can also use the following information to help you decide if the All-on-4 dental implants is better than traditional dentures.

Benefits of All-on-4 Treatment

All-on-4 dental implants are ideal for replacing multiple teeth in the bottom or top arch. They can be placed quickly and are available for immediate use after placement, which makes them a great option for those who want full oral function right away. Additional benefits of this revolutionary tooth replacement system include:

  • Quick recovery and healing time when compared to standard implants
  • Permanent tooth replacement that doesn’t carry a threat of falling out during meals or conversations
  • No bone grafting required, thanks to the unique way All-on-4 dental implants are engineered
  • Affordable treatment cost when compared to individual implants
  • Convenient treatment process that requires fewer office visits than some other procedures

If you have considered traditional dentures, you may want to include All-on-4 dental implants in your considerations. In addition to staying in place without requiring special pastes, All-on-4 differs from traditional dentures in another key area: bone stimulation. Since regular dentures “float” on top of the gums, they don’t offer any kind of stimulation to the bone tissue below the gums. This lack of stimulation can cause the bone to degrade and lose its shape. All-on-4 dental implants, on the other hand, have four implant posts that are inserted directly into the bone to provide consistent stimulation and help retain bone health and density.
