Dental Implants vs. All-on-4 Dental Implants
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth that have either been removed or fallen out because of decay or that have been knocked out in an injury. The implants are designed to look just like the missing teeth, and they are inserted directly into the jaw bone so that they do not move.
While dental implants are an excellent solution for a missing tooth or two, they aren’t a good option for replacing numerous missing teeth. Doing so would require extensive surgeries and costs. Single implants also aren’t a good option if you have extensive bone loss or other major problems with your dental health.
All-on-4 dental implants replace an entire row of teeth and are connected to the jaw bone with only four screws — instead of the 14 required for the same number of individual implants. The treatment is faster, and it is less expensive than replacing a comparable number of teeth.
