What Is the Difference Between All-on-4™ and Dentures?

Both traditional removable dentures and All-on-4™ – Teeth in a Day can restore your smile after losing all of your teeth. However, there are several differences between these two options that can make one or the other a better solution for your needs and goals. Our experienced dentists can help you determine the right approach for you during your initial consultation. To give you an advance idea of the benefits and drawbacks of both approaches, we have provided a quick overview of each technique.


All-on-4, also known as Teeth in a Day, uses four dental implants per arch to securely hold a denture appliance and restore the smile. All-on-4 offers beautiful, lasting results that are custom-designed to sit comfortably in the mouth and provide a sturdy bite with minimal maintenance.


Dentures are a popular option because they are affordable and offer relatively quick results without the need for surgery. However, dentures may not fit securely, especially after many years, causing friction, discomfort, and oral health concerns. Dentures rarely offer natural-looking results and require messy pastes and significant maintenance.

Every person is unique, and your treatment should match your lifestyle, oral structures, and desired outcome. Talk to us today to find out if All-on-4 or traditional dentures can better serve you.
