Usually, when implants are utilized it takes drilling a post into the jaw for each tooth that’s needing to be replaced. However, with technological advances, if an entire row of teeth need to be replaced and dentures are not desired, all-on-4 implants can be used. This is where only four posts are surgically placed into the jaw and then a full row of false teeth is attached to the posts.
For those not wanting dentures and for those who would prefer something a little more permanent, all-on-4 dental implants are a plausible option. Implants are often more expensive but, they offer more conveniences than dentures. Not only are implants not able to be removed but, they can be treated just like natural teeth and aren’t as sensitive as dentures.
