Discover the Difference between Dentures and All-on-4 Dental Implants

Senior woman in the dental office.

If you’re missing teeth, you have a few different ways to replace them. The two most popular options are dentures and All-on-4® dental implants. See which is best for you.

A Discussion of Dentures

The dentures of today have come a long way. Dentures are a set of artificial teeth made out of porcelain and semi-soft acrylics to mirror the look of teeth and gums. Dentures are temporary appliances that are worn on top of the gums and supported by the jaw. Dentures are removable and must be taken out every day for cleaning and while sleeping. While dentures now offer more benefits than ever, its removable nature makes it much less secure than the permanent All-on-4 dental implants.

All the Facts about All-on-4 Implants

The latest dental technology has brought us another way to replace missing teeth called All-on-4 dental implants. These are simply tiny titanium posts that are surgically embedded into the jaw to provide permanent tooth replacement. All-on-4 dental implants act as a base to support and secure an entire set of artificial teeth. All-on-4 dental implants offer numerous advantages, including:

  • Their permanence ensures that there is no chance of them shifting or loosening due to daily wear and tear, which is a prevalent problem with dentures.
  • Much more stable and long-lasting for maximum comfort and confidence
  • Reduce the risk of jawbone erosion
  • Allow for easier and better daily tooth function
  • They maintain facial appearance by retaining the shape of the jawline.
  • Over time, All-on-4 dental implants cost less than dentures because they don’t require replacement or call for as many dental visits for placement and adjustment.

The Right Replacement for You

Ask your dentist which tooth replacement option is the best choice for your needs. Whichever you choose, realize that both dentures and All-on-4 dental implants will vary in cost by your dental needs and the location of your treatment.
