What if you could replace all of your teeth at one time with dental implants? That’s exactly what All-on-Four or hybrid implant designs can do.
With an All-on-Four appliance, you can replace all of the upper or lower teeth in your arch using as few as four dental implants.
What is All-on-Four?
Instead of requiring a dental implant at the location of each tooth that’s missing, hybrid systems use fewer implants at strategic points in your jaw. Since implants are extremely durable and capable of withstanding intense amounts of weight, they can support a multi-tooth All-on-Four prosthesis that spans the entire width of your arch of teeth.
Benefits of Hybrid Dental Implants
- Permanent alternative to dentures
- No bulky “plate” in the roof of your mouth
- Comfortable and discreet
- Simple to eat and speak with
- No dietary restrictions
- Supports a fuller facial profile
- Promotes healthier, stronger bone
Candidates for All-on-Four implants are usually people who want a permanent alternative to dentures or are planning to have multiple teeth extracted. They provide a predictable rehabilitation option that allows you to avoid modifying your lifestyle.
