Many renowned dentists suggest the All-On-Four dental implants to restore your smile or fill in the gaps from missing teeth. Unlike traditional methods, this involves fewer implants, saving you time and money.
However, patients who opt for the All-In-Four implants must undergo a critical recovery. Although you can take medications for pain and swelling, it takes about three to four days to be able to eat normally. For people with bone grafting, the recovery time can be as long as three weeks.
All-On-Four dental implants offer a completely new set of teeth with just four implants. This revolutionary dental procedure addresses the problem of missing teeth, deformed structure of the mouth, uneven smile, and speech problems.
These fixed implants are embedded in the jaws to provide a sturdy base for the replacement teeth. Doctors recommend this procedure to those suffering from excessive tooth loss, dental decay, and periodontal disease.
Medical science has come a long way. For example, years ago, it was impossible to find a set of artificial teeth that might look or sound the same as their natural counterparts.
All-On-Four implants are always an effective solution, from missing or loose teeth to severe gum diseases and other pertinacious dental problems. They also prevent the loss and degradation of our jaw bones. This is also a permanent solution when compared to other kinds of traditional implants.
Patients who have already stayed long without their natural teeth may undergo a long transition. However, it is different for those who might have just lost their teeth and are opting for these implants.
No matter your condition, we advise you to take some days off before you start the entire procedure.
This process is more painful than other implants. In addition, since they are inserted into the jawbone, the recovery time is longer than usual. The jawbone structure takes about four to six months to adapt to the implants and heal from the procedure.
However, people who go with conventional implants have to wait for a suggester period to heal from the procedure. This can be different for every patient depending on their dental condition. Usually, it can be anywhere between six months to a year.
Patients who opt for an All-On-Four procedure can start having their meals the same day after restoration. Eating soft foods and chewing thoroughly to avoid excessive pressure on the teeth is better. You can also drink healthy, nutritious drinks for several months until you heal completely.
Standard All-On-Four Implant support allows you to eat all kinds of food only after four to six months of recovery. However, it will always take a few meals before you are completely accustomed to the feeling of eating with your implant dentures.
Most patients who opt for this procedure do not need much time to start speaking. In addition, the comfortable fit of these implants makes them very easy to recover from.
Patients suffering from tooth loss will find their lost confidence and can greatly benefit from this.
The healing process for All-On-Four dentures starts right after the surgery. Unlike traditional dentures, which take about eight months to heal and another year to adapt, these only require six months to a year.
These implants help you achieve quick stability after the surgery, giving you a longer healing period.
Rest is the key to getting better quickly after an All-In-Four surgery. Since the body heals the best in a rested state, ensure you take a minimum of a week’s rest after the surgery. Avoid working out, exercising, or doing other physical labour during the first week after the procedure.
One of the major side effects of implant surgery is inflammation. You can try y to reduce these with hot and cold packs. Apply these compresses to the sides of your face every fifteen minutes. Once the inflammation subsides, you will recover even faster.
Eat only soft foods and healthy liquids
Chewy food can exert a lot of unnecessary pressure on your implants. In addition, biting on hard food can remove a newly installed implant from its place. However, you can resume your regular diet after the first three weeks of the surgery.
Maintain proper oral hygiene
Good oral hygiene reduces the risks of post-surgery infections. You can use professional tools like interdental brushes to precisely clean the implants and simultaneously maintain your oral prosthetics.
Although the All-On-Four Implants seem to be a painful procedure, we urge you to opt for it. Not only is it incredibly efficient, but it is a budget-friendly option. In addition, this process will help you recover faster than other alternatives and is more long-lasting.
