CAN ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS BE REMOVED IF NECESSARY?
All On 4 Dental Implants can be removed or replaced if necessary but this is generally a rare occurrence.
Infection and/or implant failure would necessitate the removal and replacement of the existing implant and bone grafting would typically be recommended to rebuild the structural support for a new implant.
Keep in mind that All On 4 Dental Implants are meant to be a permanent solution and are removed once per year by your prosthodontist to clean and access your oral hygiene. This means it is very important that you use your Water Pic daily to flush food debris from under your prosthesis to prevent gum infection.
If you are considering All On 4 Dental Implants or have existing complications, it is important to discuss these issues with a Board Certified Prosthodontist so you can make an informed decision regarding your treatment.
