All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems and Complications May Occur

All-on-4 Dental Implants problems may occur if the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure is not performed by an experienced Dentist. Although, the All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure has a higher success rate than conventional methods, due to its popularity in recent years, when the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure is performed by an unscrupulous and inexperienced Dentist there are increased risks of complications and problems.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems - Smoking

Smoking has its influence on general as well as oral health of an individual. Tobacco negatively affects the outcome of almost all therapeutic procedures performed in the oral cavity. The failure rate of implant osseointegration is considerably higher among smokers, and maintenance of oral hygiene around the implants and the risk of peri-implantitis are adversely affected by smoking. To increase implant survival in smokers, various protocols have been recommended. Although osseointegrated dental implants have become the state of the art for tooth replacement, they are not without limitations or complications.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems - Diabetes

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems - Diabetes

Although a direct relationship with periodontal disease has already been shown, little is known about the results of dental implants in diabetics. The present paper reviews the bibliography linking the effect of diabetes on the osseointegration of implants and the healing of soft tissue. In experimental models of diabetes, a reduced level of bone-implant contact has been shown, and this can be reversed by means of treatment with insulin. Compared with the general population, a higher failure rate is seen in diabetic patients. Most of these occur during the first year of functional loading, seemingly pointing to the microvascular complications of this condition as a possible causal factor.

Patients at higher risk for peri-implantitis, such as those with partial edentia or pre-existing chronic periodontitis, should be identified and monitored closely. Several studies have demonstrated that sites of pre-existing infection may act as reservoirs for periopathogens, which can spread to colonize the implant, especially in patients with aggressive periodontitis. Other patients potentially at risk are patients with diabetes mellitus who have poor metabolic control, those with poor plaque control and those who smoke cigarettes.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems - Inexperienced Provider

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems - Inexperience

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems can be caused by an inexperienced provider. Many practitioners with little experience use a surgical guide for implant placement. Although conventionally made surgical guides are used, the clinical outcome is often unpredictable, and even if the implants are well placed, the location and deviation of the implants may not meet the optimal prosthodontic requirements of a well supported All-on-4 bridge. Properly placed implants are fundamental to a successful long-term All-on-4 restoration. Achieving the knowledge and skill to optimally place implants comes from experience alone. It does not come from a text-book, studies, or a third-party planning service. Just as the integrity of a building is dependent on its structure, so to is the All-on-4 Dental Implant Restoration. Some corporations claim that their “Dentists” have placed thousands of implants, and they have 100’s of “Dentists”. This means that one Dentist may have placed 2 implants and another 2000. This statement is misleading on its face value. Do not rely on false claims and experience that is not relevant to the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems - Did You Know?

According to a 1994 study by Zhao Y and Ye D, published in Pub Med, human males can generate approximately 120 kilograms of force. This is equal to about 265 pounds of force. Females generate slightly less powerful, but comparable, forces. Humans generate the highest amount of force to their first molars. Humans only impart about 43 kilograms of force with their incisors, and about 99 kilograms of force with their bicuspids. Surprisingly, humans bite much harder than any of the other great apes, when the results are adjusted for size. Humans bite as hard as nutcrackers close, when size is taken into consideration.

While 100% off breakage may not be avoided, this is why many All-on-4 Dental Implant Problems such as breakage can be avoided by having a “permanent” restoration with a titanium bar framework from day one. Without this substructure and by using Acrylic with denture teeth restorations, your chance of All-on-4 Dental Implant problems such as breakage is increased by 90%. 99.9% of facilities use this antiquated method, that is why you can expect to be back dozens of times.
