Despite its success rate, problems can occur with the All on 4 dental implants.
It's best to know what potential issues can happen and how to avoid them.
Breakage of unsupported teeth next to the dental implant. The teeth near the
dental implant can break or crack if the implants are not attached correctly. This failure, coupled with other failures, can create
a rippling series of consequences, like severe damage to the gums, tissues, and teeth, not to mention additional expenses.
Lack of proper planning before the procedure. With a lack of planning by the dentist or implant specialist,
implant placement could get compromised even with high-quality equipment.
Poor quality dental implants. Substitutes or low-quality dental implants could also contribute to potential
problems with All on 4 dental implants.
Poor post-procedure care. Your dental clinic will provide full instructions on maintaining a proper dental hygiene
routine after the All on 4 dental procedure. You need to follow all the guidelines to avoid problems.
Health condition. The patient's health conditions also contribute to possible problems in All on 4 dental implant treatments.
Patients with periodontal diseases, diabetes, or patients who are regular smokers can expect to run into problems.
Patient expectations. After an All on 4 dental procedure, patients will need to make adjustments.
Those who have had missing teeth for a long time will have to adjust to having a full set of teeth. In cases like this, patients may find dental implants uncomfortable.
They may encounter bite and chewing issues.
