One of the advancements in restorative dentistry is hybrid dentures. An improvement over overdentures or implant-supported dentures, the All-on-4 dental implant system offers the benefits of dental implants with a more affordable option. All-on-4 dental implants use a hybrid denture that is more natural in design combined with four implants per plate to permanently hold the denture in place. At Hollon Dental, we are pleased to offer All-on-4 dental implants for our patients that want a beautiful new mouth restoration, available at our dental center in Mobile, AL.
All-on-4 dental implants have a few innovations that make them different than implant-supported dentures or traditional overdentures. While all these options combine dental implants and dentures, All-on-4 is a permanent solution that screws a hybrid denture in place. Some overdentures snap into place but are removable for cleaning. They also may have dentures that cover the top of the mouth with a plate. All-on-4 offers a hybrid denture that does not have a roof plate, making the prosthetic denture feel and look more like natural teeth.
Full Mouth Restoration
All-on-4 dental implants allow for a full mouth restoration with only four implants per hybrid denture plate. Most implant-supported dentures require 5-8 implants. With fewer implants, less bone density is needed to support the implants, and it can be more cost effective than other implant/denture procedures. The innovative design and method used for All-on-4 dental implants allow more people to qualify for this full mouth restoration.
All-on-4 dental implants are a perfect option for those who want the stability and durability of dental implants but a less invasive option than full mouth implants. With a maximum of eight implants for the entire mouth restoration, All-on-4 is less expensive and requires less bone density and recovery. The benefits include a full set of teeth that look and feel more like natural teeth that stay in place 24/7.
If you are considering a full mouth restoration with dentures or dental implants, the All-on-4 option may be right for you.
