If you are considering options to replace missing teeth, you may be weighing the benefits of the All-on-4® treatment concept versus traditional dentures. Both can restore your smile function, but which is the right choice for you?
All-on-4® Treatment Concept and Denture Option
The innovative All-on-4® treatment concept securely anchors dentures using as few as 4 strategically placed dental implants, preventing bone loss for natural chewing and a permanently confident smile. This revolutionary protocol replaces lost roots and teeth, mimicking natural teeth.
Traditional dentures, on the other hand, are removable dental appliances that only replace the visible crown portion of missing teeth. Dentures rely solely on the mouth’s natural suction and dental adhesives to stay in place without roots securing them.
Why All-on-4® Treatment Concept is the Gold Standard
Implant-supported dentures, such as those used in the All-On-4® treatment concept, are considered the gold standard for full-mouth rehabilitation. At the Premier Center for Oral, Dental Implant & Facial Surgery, we specialize in the most complex All-on-4® restorations, including Zygomatic and Pterygoid implants and complex bone grafting.
We also use 3D facial scanning and printing for highly precise implant placement to create exceptional fit and natural aesthetics using our in-house lab.
There are several key reasons why these dentures are highly recommended:
- Because they replace lost roots, dental implants stimulate the jawbone and prevent bone loss. Traditional dentures cannot prevent gradual bone loss over time, which can change the shape of your face, making you appear much older.
- Dental implants are designed to be a permanent, one-time treatment for total tooth loss. No replacements are needed once the implants integrate with the jawbone, and the denture is secured. Traditional dentures need to be relined and remade every 3-5 years due to the effects of ongoing bone loss.
- The innovative All-on-4® treatment concept securely retains the replacement teeth in the mouth. Patients don’t have to worry about teeth slipping out of place or falling out when they speak or eat as they do with traditional dentures.
- The All-on-4® treatment concept restores the natural biting and chewing force like the feeling you get with your original teeth. Dentures fail to replicate this needed pressure.
With all these advantages, the All-on-4® treatment concept is widely considered the gold standard and ideal for patients requiring full mouth restorations.
When Are Dentures Recommended?
Traditional dentures do still have their place in certain circumstances. Dentures may be the only tooth replacement option for patients not healthy enough to undergo surgery and dental implant placement. In these cases, well-made dentures can provide an affordable, non-surgical alternative.
However, for patients who are healthy enough for the All-on-4® treatment concept, this option provides immense benefits over removable dentures and is highly recommended by dental professionals.
