What is the difference between All-on-4 and implant supported dentures?

If you have missing teeth, it's crucial to get replacements so you can eat, speak, and smile with comfort and ease. Many dentists and patients consider dental implants to be the gold standard of tooth replacements, and there are several different kinds of dental implants available.

Implant-supported dentures, also called 'snap-in dentures', and All-onwoman and man dancing outside | dentist clifton hill-4 dental implants are two of many options. Both of these tooth replacement treatments use dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone, but they are very different. 

Implant-Supported Denture vs All-on-4 Implants

An implant-supported denture is removable, while All-on-4 implants are permanent. 

Implant-supported dentures consist of 2–6 implants in the patient's mouth, and the dentist creates a denture that 'snaps' into place. We recommend removing the denture for cleaning and sleep.

With All-on-4 dental implants, you can continue brushing and flossing as usual since they're very similar to natural teeth.

We also recommend visiting the dentist regularly to ensure your implant-supported dentures or All-on-4s stay secure and healthy.
