5 Benefits of All-On-Four Dental Implants
If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, All-on-4® dental implants deliver the lifelong comfort and stability of implants with fewer posts and a shorter process.

Whether you lost a tooth to decay or an accident, you want to replace it and fill in that gap in your smile. That becomes increasingly true the more teeth you lose. By the time you need a full arch of teeth, the situation can feel pressing.

For a quick and easy solution, a lot of people turn to dentures. But dentures require a learning curve, need to get replaced periodically, and don’t do anything to preserve your jawbone health.

That’s why many dentists recommend dental implants. With All-on-4® implants, our team can firmly root your new arch of teeth in your mouth — and give you a solution that should last your lifetime. You can talk to us about All-on-4 here at LA Dentists Group in Glendale, California, but we wanted to highlight a few benefits of this option here in this blog as well.

#1: Teeth that look and feel natural

Dental implants provide replacement teeth that outperform dentures and bridges. Because implants get rooted into your jawbone via a metal post, they function just like your natural teeth. 

That means there’s no learning curve. You won’t need to adjust your speaking or eating after getting your All-on-4 implants. You’ll be able to confidently flash that new smile.  

#2: A full arch of teeth

Historically, implants have required one post per tooth. This mimics your natural teeth, which each have their own distinct root. 

But advancements in tooth replacement technology mean that you can get a full arch of teeth without needing a full set of implanted posts. Instead, as the name suggests, the All-on-4 system roots a full arch of teeth on four strategically placed posts. 

#3: A lifelong solution

Dentures and bridges both need replacing on a periodic basis. With All-on-4 implants, you get a solution that should last your lifetime — provided you stay up with your oral hygiene. Our team can show you how to properly care for your new arch of teeth. 

#4: Personalized results

To ensure you get an ideal outcome from your All-on-4 implant, we plan it carefully. This starts with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans to create detailed images of your mouth and jaw. Those allow us to precisely plan the location and angle of each of the four implants. 

They also help us to create the teeth that will get rooted to the implants, ensuring they match your original smile. 

#5: Teeth in a day

Other dental implants require you to get the post rooted in your jaw, then wait for it to heal before the replacement tooth can be placed on top. All-on-4 is different. It’s often called “teeth in a day” because you get your replacement arch of teeth on the same day as your implant surgery.
