All-on-4 Dental Implants Reviews

Enjoy the following stories written by people who have undergone the process of getting All-on-4 dental implants paris tx.

One Week, and So Far So Good

It has been a little over one week since I underwent the All-on-4 dental implant process. I am 63 and had my upper dentures and eight natural teeth on the bottom replaced. The eight teeth in the bottom did not necessarily have to be taken out, but they were beginning to show signs of wear and I decided to do everything all together since I was going through the trouble. I was initially concerned that I would not qualify for the procedure because I had been told earlier that I lost too much bone in the upper jaw, but they were able to bypass this issue and now I am wearing temporary dentures which are going to be replaced with the permanent dentures in about four months or so.

One week out and the pain and discomfort have almost completely subsided. Moving forward, I believe the biggest impact from having had this procedure performed is that I will need to stick to a soft food diet to ensure the implants properly stabilize and settle. I can already tell that my upper dentures feel more comfortable and natural than my old dentures, but I am still adjusting to the lower dentures, which replaced my natural teeth. There is an acrylic protrusion that was placed at the base of these teeth that is apparently strengthening the implant, which is taking a little time to get used to, but I have been assured that nearly all patients who have this procedure performed quickly become used to this new sensation. So far and overall, I am very glad to have taken the time to have this procedure performed and very much look forward to having my permanent teeth placed!

Five Months Out

Now that I am five months out of having my All-on-4 dental implants placed, all I can say is that I wish I had had this procedure performed sooner! Immediately following the procedure, I was a little skeptical because I had to modify what I ate, which was kind of annoying and there was definitely some pain for the first week or so, but after getting through that initial recovery period, things have only gotten better.

I would say aside from the initial discomfort, the biggest drawback to this whole experience was having to modify my diet and only eat soft foods. While it was difficult getting through that initial healing period, I am now so happy to be able to enjoy all kinds of foods, and best of all, I love knowing that I can smile confidently with a full set of pearly whites!

Prior to getting this procedure performed, I swore I would never do it because it was too expensive, but I was able to finance the procedure by taking out a loan and the impact it has had on the quality of my life has already been paid back in full. I cannot recommend this procedure enough and I am so glad I finally gathered up the courage to take the plunge and get this procedure done!

All-on-4 for the Win!

II had known how much of a difference having this procedure would have on my life, I would have scheduled this procedure YEARS ago. I had lost the majority of my crowns and molars years ago and the teeth I had left were in terrible shape. I had basically resigned myself to a life of a gummy smile, but then I learned about All-on-4. I had this procedure performed a little over two years ago, and it has had such a tremendous impact on my confidence and sense of self-worth. It has also helped me make other positive changes in my life, such as eating better and exercising more regularly. It’s amazing how much of an impact changing one part of your life can, but if there is anything I have learned from getting All-on-4 dental implants, it’s that it is never too late to change. I am so glad I had this procedure performed and would recommend it to anyone!
