Are All-on-4 Implants a Better Alternative Than Dentures to Replace Lost Teeth?

Senior woman in the dental office.

If you’re tired of hating and hiding your smile because you’re missing teeth, you may think traditional dentures are your only option. But today, there’s a much better solution called All-on-4® implants.

Details on Dentures
At one time, traditional dentures were the only solution for replacing lost teeth. They were quick and easy to manufacture and looked rather natural, but they tended to move around during the day and didn’t look exactly like natural teeth. These dentures were not very comfortable and made it difficult to pursue daily activities like eating, speaking, and athletics. While dentures served their purpose for replacing teeth, they were just not right for everyone.

All You Need to Know about All-on-4 Implants
Dentistry has come a long way and led to the development of a better alternative to traditional dentures known as All-on-4 implants. Often called 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:

  • Very natural look and feel
  • Complete comfort
  • Only needs four dental implants embedded in the jaw to securely hold a complete set of new teeth
  • Only requires one surgery for a full set of new teeth in just one day
  • 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
