In the dentistry profession, the All-on-4® procedure is winning more and more patients every year, and it’s no surprise why! In this article, we’ll go over the difference between All-on-4® and dentures to help you decide which treatment option may be best for you.It does make a lot of difference if you have dentures or dental implants. Dentures can be fixed but are not natural for the patient. Many people with dentures are noticeable; they keep their smiles hidden when out in public.

Dentures have recently been in the news for not always being a viable solution for missing teeth. Dentures do not allow you to chew foods as usual because they are connected to your gums, which can easily break and develop sores if you try to bite into something challenging.Dental implants, in contrast, act like your “real” teeth. You can generally chew because the implants are secured by a titanium screw that attaches to the crown, making them solid and durable.Dentures are not a long-term solution as they are only intended for use until most natural teeth have been extracted. With All-on-4®, patients can get a complete prosthetic replacement for their entire upper or lower jaw.This is quite different compared to traditional dentures. The goal of dental implants is to offer a permanent solution for the patient rather than just a temporary one, which is what you get once you place your denture.If you’d like to find out more about All-on-4®, contact the team at Next Smile™.
