The Beauty and Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants

- No bone graft usually necessary
- Lower cost than other treatment alternatives, making it easier to replace teeth with affordable All-on-4 dental implants
The Dental Disadvantages of All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants have worked for many people, but they may not be best for you. Some dentists dissuade patients from choosing All-on-4 dental implants for the following reasons:
- When teeth are all placed on the same day, you will not be able to test the teeth for their appearance, comfort, or bite.
- All-on-4 dental implants cannot be placed in the molar areas of the mouth where bite force is greatest.
- It demands a high level of bone to hold implants in place.
It’s important to understand both sides of this treatment option, yet only your dentist can tell you if All-on-4 dental implants are the ideal way for you to replace missing teeth.
