Decades ago, there was really only one choice for correcting failing teeth − dentures. And while dentures certainly solve the problem of missing teeth, they come with their own list of drawbacks. Besides the fact that the word “dentures” is often synonymous with the word “old,” dentures don’t feel like natural teeth and must be removed nightly for cleaning.

So, what’s the better option?

The Difference Between Traditional Dental Implants and All-on-4’s

Traditional dental implants became popular in the early 1990’s, after the American Dental Association (ADA) endorsed them in 1986. During the next 15 years, the number of dental implant procedures in the U.S. tripled!

Dental implants are still popular today, as they offer patients a secure and comfortable alternative to conventional bridges and dentures. Implants look and feel just like natural teeth, they don’t affect bordering teeth and they maintain bone mass − meaning they can help prevent additional tooth loss.

What’s the downside of dental implants? Traditional implants require bone grafting, which can be a lengthy process with long healing times. The number of dental appointments can add up, which means costs add up as well.

Here’s where All-on-4 dental implants, or Teeth in One Day, come in. Like traditional dental implants, they look and function just like natural teeth. But with this advanced technique, patients receive four dental implants anchored to a customized, fixed dental bridge in just one appointment. No bone grafting needed!

The Many Benefits of All-on-4’s

If you’re weighing the options of tooth replacement, you should know that the All-on-4 procedure has several benefits over both conventional dental implants and dentures:

A Permanent Solution − Unlike dentures, which are removable, All-on-4’s are permanently anchored in the mouth so they’ll never pinch or slip.

Restored Chewing Function − All-on-4 implants are strong and stable, restoring chewing function so you can enjoy all of your favorite foods and chew with confidence.

Fewer Implants − All-on-4’s require only four implants to replace the entire upper arch (conventional implants require anywhere from four to eight implants in a single arch).

Less Discomfort and Faster Healing − The All-on-4 procedure eliminates the need for bone grafting, which significantly reduces the need for additional dentistry.

Fewer Appointments and Lower Costs − One of the greatest benefits of the All-on-4 technique is a fully-functioning, beautiful smile in just one visit. Fewer appointments means less time off from work and fewer overall costs.
