You can replace a full arch of teeth with 4 implants
All on 4 implants is the most practical way to permanently replace a full upper or full lower set of teeth. Our local sedation dentists can put you to sleep while you get a new set of teeth at our location in Burtonsville Maryland. All on four implants is a permanent full implant option that stays in the mouth and does not need to be removed. Dental sedation is recommended but not required.
All on 4 is more predictable with 5 or 6 implants
While the solution is called “All on 4”, it is better to use 5-6 implants to properly support a full set of implant teeth. Four implants are not strong enough to replace 12-14 natural teeth. Furthermore, if one of the implants does not work, the patient and implant doctor may waste a lot of time and money.

Partial Dentures Compared to Implants
Partial Dentures use the remaining teeth to support replacement of remaining teeth. Partial dentures have metal or plastic arms that wrap around the roots of the remaining teeth to hold the fake teeth in place. Partial Dentures put pressure on the remaining teeth and eventually cause more tooth loss. Chewing forces are placed on the remaining teeth and the missing tooth areas. Partial dentures do not replace any loss root structure and the patient still has missing tooth spaces under the denture. There is still bone loss and facial bone atrophy under the dentures. The gum and bone shrink under the denture. Eventually the denture does not fit anymore and it will need to be replaced. Since the partial attaches to remaining natural teeth, if there is loss of an additional tooth, the partial denture may not fit anymore and it may need to be replace. Since dentures put pressure on the remaining teeth, it will usually lead to more tooth loss within a period of 5-7 years. Partial Dentures vs All on 4 implants sedation
