All on 4 procedure - Procedure corrected and have the implants placed differently?

by jim

I did my research and 3 months ago,I had all my teeth pulled, and had 4 upper and 4 lower implants placed..then had teeth attached to the implants...all in the same dayץ

after the procedure, the pain did not last long but the teeth were very uncomfortable.

I had to learn to chew again and the process seemed slow and I expected some pain and discomfort.

BUT -It seemed like my mouth was full of plastic.

Today I went and had the teeth removed for cleaning and realized why my mouth had so much plastic - the 2 the upper and lower front implants were not placed where my teeth once seems the implants were placed in the middle of my mouth..not where my teeth used to be..the dentist told me that there was nothing he could do..I will always have a mouth full of plastic.

I cried on the drive home!

I was told after the procedure was done the teeth would be 95% like real teeth

I basically have dentures screwed into my mouth

I spent much of my saving getting this procedure done.

can I have this procedure corrected and have the implants placed differently??

thanks for the help

Hi Jim,

I'm so sorry about your experience with the denture. Many times people request to have all of their teeth extracted and a full denture placed, not knowing what a huge impact it will make on their entire life (speech, tasting food, etc.)

It sounds like your dentist had a denture created that covers the roof of your mouth. There are dentures available that only cover the arch of where the teeth should be, with the roof area of your mouth left open. You may want to talk with an implant specialist about having this type of a denture created. I would suspect that the implants themselves are fine, and would not need to be re-done entirely (though a new abutment for the denture to rest on may be in store for a different type of denture.)

As far as the plastic feeling, there are only a few different ways for us to make dental appliances and as of yet, none of them are going to feel exactly the same as tooth enamel. It can take several months for you to fully become accustomed to them.

Oh that would have been a very uncomfortable situation for sure, replacing all the 8 teeth at the same time. I think you were lucky enough that the pain didn’t lasted for long which is so rare in doing implant surgeries. fashion for play
