What are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

Before and After All on 4 Dental Implants


ALL-ON-4 Dental Implants provide the most secure anchor for dental restorations. Dental implants will give the most natural look and feel if you seek a permanent solution to missing teeth. It will provide you with a functional smile, allowing you to eat corn on the cob and steak. Dental implants use high-end porcelain, making them look like your natural teeth. Porcelain is also resilient and can withstand regular eating and brushing habits. Dental implant teeth are appealing and do not retain odors like dentures. As each patient’s bone structure is different, we work with patients to ensure they have the best fit possible. We will assess your mouth structure prior to starting the implant process and determine the best implant option. Materials used for All-On-4 treatment is stronger from a denture-supported implant and they do aid in preventing bone loss.

We highly recommend All-on-4 dentures as it is a permanent solution, and it allows you to retain your smile. All-On-4 also allows patients to enjoy their favorite foods, and these foods will taste normal since you do not have the denture glue taste added to each meal!

At Dream Dental, we recognize the importance of having a fully-functional mouth. We want to ensure our patients are given the best treatment methods for their oral health needs. We recommend scheduling an appointment with our Salt Lake dental implant office to discuss affordable senior dental implants.


Traditional Dentures Vs. All-On-4 Dental Implants

Don't settle for Dentures

Implant supported dentures are a great option for patients seeking permanent solutions, and want to avoid the disadvantages of dentures that need to be resized and adjusted frequently. Dentures can often lead to problems for patients as they can cause sores on the gums. Implant retained dentures can improve your quality of life as you can eat and talk without the fear of your dentures moving or falling out. Dental implants allow you to eat a greater range of foods, unlike dentures. Here is a comparison:



  • Dentures fall out
  • They are Big and bulky
  • Adjustment needs, sending a patient back to the dental office several times.
  • Dentures are extremely fragile and could bend while brushing them, or worse, crack!
  • Dentures can pull out of the mouth easily if you are eating sticky foods. Even certain foods like lettuce can be tricky to eat with dentures.
  • Dentures will not preserve your jawbone, which means your face can start to shrink and will alter your appearance.

All On 4 dental Implants

  • Dental Implants are permanent. You wont have to remove them at night, or worry about them falling out in public.
  • They are about 30% Less Material and are the most natural feeling option available.
  • The materials available for the all on 4 prosthetic are extremely strong. If maintained will last you the rest of your life.
  • All on 4 gives you function back to eat the foods your love. This will include steak, corn on the cob, apples, and more!
  • Cosmetically this will make you look like yourself again. It will boost your confidence to pursue your dream. People will notice that there is something different about you. It will look natural, feel natural and function like real teeth.
  • Dental implants will preserve bone.

Preserving the jawbone is a major reason why we recommend using dental implants. Dentures can be uncomfortable to wear after several years, and we often see patients that wish they would’ve started with dental implants when they had their teeth extracted. As the jawbone moves and starts to shrink over the years, dentures will not fit the same. Dentures that initially felt comfortable are now causing pain and sores on the gums. Dental implants on the other hand will continue to stimulate the jawbone, allowing it to remain healthy and continue to keep your appearance looking the same over the years. Dental Implants is like building a house on a new strong foundation designed to last.
