All-on-4 dental implants are a full set of implants that are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth using only 4 implant screws. They are a permanent set of teeth set on dental implants and surgically placed into your jaw. They are often a more permanent and natural looking alternative to dentures. Dental implants often require patients to undergo bone grafting, however, the All-on-4 procedure reduces the need for bone grafting. All-on-4 is an amazing tool for many people to restore an entire arch of teeth simply within a budget set of only 4 implants.
Dental implants are widely recognised as the most durable and stable solution for tooth loss. All-on-4 dental implants differ from removable dentures because they are a permanent fixed solution for severely damaged or missing teeth. These implants are secured directly into your own jaw. This ensures that they not only feel, but also function just like natural teeth.

With good oral hygiene habits, proper care and regular Oral Hygiene visits most dental professionals can agree that the lifespan of the All-on-4 implants to be of about a solid 10-25 years margin.
