Traditional Dentures vs. All-on-4
Millions of people all over the world suffer from tooth loss, be it a single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
One of the most popular and possibly the only solutions for replacing missing teeth used to be dentures. You’d often see your grandparents wearing removable dentures if they had a few teeth missing. However, thanks to recent advancements in the medical and dental field, we now have a variety of tooth-replacement options, one of which is called The All-on-4® Treatment Concept.
These implants have become the ultimate standard of care for damaged or missing teeth.
At JP Dental & Implant Center, we also suggest All-On-4 Treatment Concept to most patients given how it’s so much more advanced and effective than traditional dentures.
What Is All-on-4?
As the same suggests, this is a type of dental treatment for missing teeth in which four dental implants are used to provide support to all of your teeth. These implants help replace either your lower or the upper set of teeth where each implant is inserted in the gum followed by an artificial tooth. So, instead of replacing each missing tooth individually, the four implants serve as the main anchor in your jawbone, providing support to all of your teeth, both natural and artificial.
Traditional Dentures vs. All-On-4
Dentures were once the go-to solution for missing teeth, but the truth is they do come with possible limitations and downsides when compared with the All-on-4 Treatment option.
If you are missing a few or all of your teeth, we suggest you look into All-On-4, which is a more viable option than dentures.
