Are All-on-4 Implants Better Than Dentures to Replace Missing Teeth?
If you’re fed up with living with missing teeth, you may be considering traditional dentures as a practical replacement option. Luckily, time and technology has brought along a better alternative called All-on-4® implants.
The Deal on Dentures
Traditional dentures were once the only tooth replacement option. While they were fast to create and relatively natural-looking, they didn’t feel like natural teeth and made it hard to comfortably live your life. Plus, these dentures tended to shift or fall out when eating, talking, or being involved in athletic activities. While dentures served their purpose for replacing teeth, they were just not right for everyone.
All the Facts about All-on-4 Implants
Today, advances in dentistry have introduced an alternative to conventional dentures called All-on-4 implants. Sometimes referred to as All-on-4 dentures, these are an ideal alternative for people looking to replace missing teeth and maintain a high quality of life. Some of the benefits of All-on-4 implants include:
- Only requires four implants embedded in the jaw to secure a full set of teeth
- Extremely natural look and feel
- Complete comfort
- Much more secure and stable than traditional dentures
- No risk of All-on-4 dentures shifting or loosening with wear
- Ideal for active and busy people
- Freedom to play sports, comfortably chew, and eat all of your favorite foods
- Less invasive surgical procedure than traditional dentures because only four implants are needed
- Procedure performed with one surgery in one day
