All-on-4 Dental Implants are also called Full-arch fixed implant bridges. The procedure uses dental implants to fix dentures in place. If all the teeth are missing from one or both jaws, the normal procedure is to replace the whole set of teeth with artificial ones. Dentures can be removable or like in the case of All-on-4 implants, permanent. To fix the dentures in place, implants are used and as the name suggests, there are four implants that help hold on to all the teeth.
All-on-4 dental implants have a few advantages over regular dentures which include feeling more natural, lasting longer, and having no need for bone grafting. The four implants that are fitted into the jaw bone help to preserve part of the bone as it fuses around the implant and does not get resorbed by the body. All-on-4 dental implants use either acrylic or composite resin to make the artificial teeth or porcelain can also be used. The teeth look like natural teeth and function just as well.
