How the All on 4 Is Different Than Traditional Dental Implants

Posted on 10/25/2019 by Matt Aldridge DDS
How the All on 4 Is Different Than Traditional Dental ImplantsDental implants are undeniably the most effective method for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are ideal for individuals who are missing a single tooth, several teeth or an entire set of teeth in your mouth.

However, for individuals who are missing the entire set of teeth in their mouth, then there is an effective and efficient procedure for these types of problems; All-on-4 implants. All-on-4 implants are a standard dental procedure where all teeth are supported on only four dental implants.

For suitable candidates, this procedure offers several advantages over traditional implants. If you believe you are a suitable candidate for All-on-4 dental implants, schedule an appointment with us today.

All-on-4 vs Traditional dental implants

Dental implants are ideal for patients who lack most of their teeth as it helps them secure full-arch dentures. A premier technique for replacing missing teeth, implant-supported dentures replaces all sets of teeth on the lower and upper arch of the mouth.

Unlike traditional removable implants which could shift or slip out of place, implant-supported dentures will stay in position at all times. Apart from restoring full form, implant-supported dentures also restore function and health to the mouth with missing teeth.

While traditional dental implants restore full form, there are instances when they will require more than ten implants to secure on each arch. However, with an all-on-4 dental implant, full arch dentures will be placed strategically on only four dental implants.
