Overdentures, Full Fixed Arch Implant Supported Bridge, or All-on-4®: Which Is Right for You?
For those missing many teeth or who have failing dental implants, restorative options are overdentures, a full fixed arch implant supported bridge, or All-on-4 dental implants. Innovative Oral Surgery & Dental Implants specializes in all three dental solutions in Bucks County and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. For more than 50 years, we’ve helped patients qualify for the restorative treatment they need, providing compassionate care and state-of-the-art technology for faster, better results.
Overdentures provide more retention than a traditional denture, as they are retained by both the natural jaw bone and implants rather than using adhesives. Implant-supported overdentures use two to four dental implants and a removable prosthesis that attaches to the implants, sometimes with a metal bar. A bar-supported implant will provide more normalcy while eating, as it is more stable.
- Lower cost
- Regained chewing efficiency
- More natural appearance; enhanced lip support for people with extreme bone loss
- Affordable to repair and maintain
- Ease of removal and cleaning
Full Fixed Arch Implant Bridges
Fixed full-arch implant-supported bridges use six to eight prosthetic implants to retain the most natural appearance of teeth. Unlike the overdenture, this prosthesis can only be removed at the dentist’s office.
- A more natural feel
- Porcelain crowns that provide a natural look
- Regained, maximal chewing efficiency
All-on-4 implants restore a full smile using just four dental implants. Like the fixed arch denture, All-on-4 stays in at all times. Patients can often avoid lengthy bone grafting procedures with All-on-4.
Benefits of this option include:
- Greater stability as compared with loose-fitting dentures
- Convenience of a same day, single surgery
- No bone grafts
- A relatively inexpensive, efficient way to replace multiple teeth at one time
