All-on-4 uses four implants per arch whereas traditional implants use around six to eight implants in each arch. The implants for All-on-4 are placed at an angle to increase the contact of the implant with the natural bone. Most patients do not require bone grafting, which is a common additional procedure needed in traditional implants. Not only do All on 4 eliminate discomfort but also saves money and time.
