For those who are not familiar with how all on four implants work, here are some of the frequently asked questions about it:
- How do I know if I am a candidate for this procedure? A 3D imaging technique will be used to expertly assess the image of your jaw, its bone quality, volume, and quantity.
- Do you always use four implants? Generally speaking, four implants are used. If the dentist finds it necessary to use more due to bone quality or quantity, they can use 6 implants instead.
- Does it hurt? The procedure can be done under general or local anesthetic. The patients do not feel pain during the procedure. After the numbness wears off, you may experience swelling and soreness that can last a few days.
