What Is The Difference Between All-On-4 And Removable Dentures?

Are you missing one or more teeth in your mouth? Does your denture feel loose or look fake and unnatural?

If so, All-on-4 dental implants can offer you a stable and aesthetic teeth replacement solution. All-on-4 is a breakthrough surgical method for implanting a permanent set of natural-looking replacement teeth. It offers a modern alternative to wearing dentures and a more straightforward approach to typical implant procedures.

The rising popularity of dental implants is not surprising. Since they are physically attached and biologically fused into the jawbone, implants provide a strong and permanent solution. They possess strength comparable to that of your natural teeth because like your real teeth, they are permanently “rooted” to your jawbone. If your teeth are restored with implants, you can finally do something that eludes all denture wearers: Eat any of the foods that you used to without being worried that you might lose your teeth or struggle to chew!


Lets Compare All on 4 Implants to Removable Dentures

Not only does the All-on-4 treatment last longer, but these dental implants also require less maintenance. Denture users need to periodically reline – or even replace – their dentures because they no longer fit. This is largely the result of old age when bone density starts to shrink. Denture users also need to contend with the daily cleaning and soaking rituals that interfere with one’s regular lifestyle and social enjoyment. With implants, you can eat, brush, floss just like you would with regular natural teeth.

Cliché as it sounds, All-on-4 offers all the benefits of dental implants for less. With All-on-4, the surgical process is less involved and requires fewer visits to the dentist’s office. You get to save on time and money costs but still receive all the benefits of having fixed replacement teeth.

For patients who are apprehensive about the complex nature of implant surgeries, All-on-4 offers an enhanced technique that eliminates the need for involved procedures like bone grafting surgery. The advanced technique makes it possible to restore a full edentulous arch with as little as 4 dental implants – although at times patients may need 6-8. The specially designed implants are inserted at specific angles to provide a rock-solid anchor for your customised prosthetic dental bridge.

All-on-4 represents a significant advantage over traditional implant surgery whether in terms of reduced costs, patient involvement or reduced number of dental visits. That means you can receive a full set of permanent prosthetic teeth in as little as three appointments. What you get is a new set of teeth that look and feel just like your own natural teeth.
