The Problems with All-on-4 Dental Implants

While All-on-4 dental implants may be popular, that doesn’t mean they are right for everyone and every case. Some dentists dissuade patients from choosing All-on-4 dental implants for the following reasons:

  • When teeth are all placed on the same day, you will not be able to test the teeth for their appearance, comfort, or bite.
  • Requires a sufficient amount of bone to hold implants securely in place.
  • All-on-4 dental implants cannot be placed in the molar areas of the mouth where bite force is greatest.

Only your dentist can tell you if All-on-4 dental implants are the right way for you to replace missing teeth.
