Traditional Implants vs. All-On-4

Few things can restore confidence like a new smile. If you’ve been hiding your smile or avoiding pictures because you’re embarrassed about your missing teeth, our team can help. Some of our popular treatments for missing teeth are dental implants and all-on-4 dentures. These treatments not only give you a beautiful smile, they also allow you to chew and talk normally. We’ve put together the following information to help you determine which treatment fits your goals.

What Are Dental Implants?

Traditional implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth. Our first step is to surgically implant a titanium post in your jaw. Titanium is biocompatible and fuses with your jawbone as your surgical site heals. This provides a strong foundation to attach a dental crown custom created to match your natural teeth. Dental implants are a versatile treatment for missing teeth — whether you’re missing just one tooth or several.


For patients missing a whole arch worth of teeth, the all-on-4 treatment provides a unique solution. Our team uses only strategically placed dental implants to provide support for a denture that replaces a full arch of teeth. Implants are placed at an angle, which increases the contact between the implant and bone and results in a stronger foundation. Additionally, this treatment typically reduces the need for a bone graft to strengthen the jaw bone.
