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

Senior woman in the dental office.

Are you self-conscious because you’ve lost teeth over time? Today, the two top ways to replace missing teeth are dentures and All-on-4® dental implants. Get a closer look at each to see which treatment to choose to save your smile.

The Differences of Dentures

Forget the dentures of the past. Today’s dentures are much better and offer many more benefits. Dentures are made of delicate porcelain and special acrylics that are crafted to look like natural teeth and gums. Dentures are temporary appliances that are placed 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 nature makes them much less secure than the permanent All-on-4 dental implants.

All of the Distinctions of All-on-4 Implants

Thanks to advances in dentistry, there’s a permanent way to replace teeth known as All-on-4 dental implants. These implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw to support an entire set of artificial teeth. All-on-4 dental implants offer many major benefits, such as:

  • Permanent tooth replacement
  • Won’t move due to daily wear, which often occurs with dentures
  • Stronger and longer-lasting than dentures to ensure confident wear
  • Better for dental health and daily function because they prevent jawbone erosion
  • They retain facial appearance by maintaining 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 Better Choice for You

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 by cost based on your dental needs and the location of your treatment.
