Benefits of implant dentures vs ProArch

  • Implant-supported dentures are removable, whilst ProArch (All-on-4) dentures or sometimes known has hybrid bridge are fixed.
  • The costs of implant dentures is more economical then that of ProArch (All-on-4) dental treatments due to the increased risks and angled implant component parts for performing ProArch (All-on-4) treatments.
  • Dental implant dentures also tend to be more stable and easier to maintain over the long-run. Because the denture is removable, you can easily remove and clean your implant posts, gums and prosthese. For ProArch (All-on-4) solution, food debris can get caught under your fixed dentures. You will require professional removal of the fixed prosthese and good cleaning with a water pix to reach under the ProArch prosthese.
  • Implant dentures normally follow a conventional implant technique whereby your implant posts are left to heal complete before overdentures are fitted over your implant posts abutments. The ProArch uses an immediate function concept. Implant posts and prosthese are done during the same period. The upside is that you will have teeth almost immediately. However the set of fixed hybrid bridges is typically temporary and you will still need to re-line, change and maintain your first set of ProArch dentures with a latter denture or hybrid bridges.

Benefits of implant bridges vs ProArch (All-on-4)

  • An alternative to implant dentures is the ideal full implant bridges solution whereby dental implant posts are placed exactly at each tooth root location area. A full bridges is then fixed over each implant posts. For implant bridges, this means that you have a new set of teeth. It feels and your have a simliar bite force to that of natural teeth. For implant dentures or ProArch hybrid bridges, you will need to take care not to overload or break your prostheses.
  • With ProArch implants, your prosthese is similiar to having a one piece full dentures fixed over implant posts. Unlike full implant bridges, implant crowns and pontic crowns that form the bridges are placed individually at precise locations.
  • Having full dental implant bridges means you clean and maintain teeth simliar to natural teeth. ProArch hybrid dentures or bridges will need careful cleaning under its prosthese daily and cannot be removed. 

What is the difference between ProArch (all-on-4 and all-on-6)

What are ProArch (all-on-4, all-on-5, all-on-6) Dental Implant?

Whilst the All-on dental implant solution involve a dental treatment to help someone reconstruct the teeth that have all been lost in one or both jaws.The all-on treatment means stable dentures instead of removable ones. 

The name “ All-on “ comes from the fact that the complete bridge is attached to 4 or 6 implants. The term All-on-4, all-on-5, all-on-6 is the trademark name by Nobel Bicoare for the full jaw implant supported hybrid dentures concept. The term ProArch is the trademark by Straumann using the same concept . Imagine that all your teeth are connected and have only 4 or 6 roots in your jaw. There particularly are 4 or 6 implants support bridge without bone augmentation. This mean that there is no need for an implant for every missing tooth. The all-on solution can be rehabilitated with only one oral surgery.
