Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Better Than Dentures for Missing Teeth?

Senior woman in the dental office.

If you’re missing many teeth, you’re probably considering your options for replacing them. Today, dentures are no longer your only alternative because there’s a new dental replacement called All-on-4® implants. Learn which is better for getting a better smile.

A Dental Discussion on Dentures
For decades, dentures were the only way to replace missing teeth. They’re available as either partial or full sets, based on the number of teeth that need to be replaced. Dentures are a simple solution for missing teeth because they can be made very quickly, can look rather natural, and don’t require surgery for placement. Yet there are many disadvantages with dentures, such as they can move or become loose while they’re worn, make it hard to comfortably engage in activities, and don’t feel the same as natural teeth. With the development of All-on-4, dentures may no longer be the best way for everyone to replace lost teeth.

All the Details on All-on-4 Implants
All-on-4 implants are an outstanding alternative to dentures, particularly for people who lead busy, active lives. Just like dentures, All-on-4 implants are created in a dental lab, but the similarities end there. All-on-4 implants are little metal posts that are surgically embedded under the gums to securely attach artificial teeth. They offer many more advantages than dentures, such as:

  • Permanent placement for complete confidence that they won’t become loose or shift while worn
  • Strong and long-lasting, compared to dentures that may need additional adjustment and repair
  • Carefree pursuit of any kind of athletic activity
  • Only requires one dental appointment to securely replace an entire mouth of teeth
  • Extremely natural look and feel

Now that you know the benefits of All-on-4, dentures just can’t compare to the comfort and confidence provided by All-on-4 implants.
