Paradise Valley AZ All on 4 Dental Implants

 

All on 4 Dental Implants can restore a person’s mouth in just one day!  It is an amazing procedure, and produces great results.  To understand what All on 4 means, you would need to understand what a dental implant is.  A dental implant involves a titanium screw inserted into the jaw bone, and then an artificial tooth is placed on top of the screw. #martindental Traditional implants can require 9 or more titanium screws.  All on 4 dental implants require just 4 screws and they are placed at the same time. 

So now that we have a grasp on what All on 4 is, here are some common things a patient can expect to experience after the procedure and also some tips to deal with them.  Paradise Valley AZ All on 4 Dental Implants

Nausea

After surgery, you may experience nausea or vomiting.  This happens from swallowing blood or from the medications you are given for pain.  A carbonated drink and crackers can help tone down the sickness.  If the nausea persists or is severe, make sure you reach our to your dentist. 

Discoloration

After surgery, around day 2 or 3, you may notice discoloration or bruising near the surgical area.  It can be black, blue, and/or yellow.  This is completely normal.  After 36 hours, you can apply moist heat to your cheeks for comfort. Paradise Valley AZ All on 4 Dental Implants

Sharp Sensations in the Mouth

If you feel something sharp in your mouth, this can be the bony walls that used to support the now missing teeth. #smilewithconfidence Small pieces of the bone may erupt from the gums after a few days.  If this becomes uncomfortable or concerns you, speak to your dentist.
