How Do All-On-4 Dental Implants® Differ From Traditional Dental Implants?
The question of how these innovative dental implants differ from conventional dental implants is probably the most common question that dental implant dentists hear. The answer is quite simple. Whereas traditional dental implants use several titanium posts to secure the artificial tooth roots into the jawbone, All-On-4 Dental Implants®, just like the name indicates, uses only four titanium posts to hold a full set of beautifully white teeth in place.
All-On-4 Dental Implants® take advantage of your existing jawbone density; the density required to secure the four titanium implants is less than what is required with traditional dental implants. Conventional dental implants require a much higher degree of jawbone density.
All-On-4 dental implants are placed in your jawbone to support one tooth or several teeth (a dental “bridge”). Traditional implants may require up to eight posts, while only four are used with All-On-4 Implants®. For this reason, the dental implant procedure in Burkburnett, TX, requires much less time in the dentist’s chair, and more people make great candidates for Burkburnett dental implants because a lesser amount of jawbone density is required.
