Should You Replace Missing Teeth With Dentures Or All-on-4 Dental Implants?

Senior woman in the dental office.

If you’re missing teeth and thought that dentures were your only option, think again. There’s another popular alternative called All-on-4® dental implants. Discover the differences between these two tooth replacements.

Discover the Differences of Dentures

Today’s dentures are much different than the ones from long ago and offer more benefits than ever. Dentures are made out of porcelain to closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth, along with semi-soft acrylics to mimic the look of the 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 have come a long way in recent years, their removable natures makes them much less secure than the permanent All-on-4 dental implants.

All You Need to Know about All-on-4 Implants

A newer alternative for replacing missing teeth is All-on-4 dental implants. These implants are tiny posts made of titanium that are permanently inserted directly into the jaw. Once surgically embedded in the jaw, 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 permanent nature means there is no risk of them moving or becoming loose during the day, which often happens with dentures.
  • Better for dental health and daily function because they prevent jawbone erosion.
  • They maintain facial appearance by retaining the shape of the jawline.
  • More secure and durable, which lets patients feel more confident and comfortable with having artificial teeth.
  • 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.

Your Dental Decision

Talk to your dentist about which tooth replacement option is right for you. 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.
