The short answer is, yes! Full mouth implants are better than dentures for many reasons. Three main reasons total teeth replacement options like full mouth implants are better than dentures are:

It’s important to know that total teeth replacement options such as the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants, All-on-6 implants) do differ from dentures.
