What’s better for an All-on-4® implant bridge, cast metal or titanium?
Posted on: January 9, 2023
A milled titanium frame is stronger than cast metal and has a more passive fit which means it puts less pressure on the surrounding bone. This helps the jaw bone heal better around All-on-4® dental implants.
Cast metal bars (cobalt chronium) tend to be the cheapest and are prone to fracture and can be harder to repair than acrylic bridges which are reinforced with titanium.
Each dentist has their own approach to All-On-4 teeth, it can often come down to their access to the right dental lab technology. Perth Dental Implant Centre works with Dental Engineering, a local dental laboratory in Perth which has titanium-milling technology and can meet the 1-2 day turnaround time required for All-On-4® surgery.
