What Are the Risks of All-on-Four Dental Implants?

Patients who opt for All-on-Four dental implants may experience bite problems due to the lack of nerve endings in the arch of the implant. This can also lead to difficulty with chewing. Fortunately, the risk of infection with dental implants is low, but it can occur if something is contaminated during implant surgery or due to one of the “patient factors”. To ensure a successful implant surgery, it is important to consult with your surgeon and follow strict Australian infection control guidelines.

The risk of All-on-Four dental implants failing is estimated to be around 5 percent. This occurs when the implants don't fuse with the bone, which can be frustrating for everyone involved. However, this can usually be resolved with a new implant. On average, less than 0.5% of All-on-Four dental implants don't fuse with bone, making it a very low risk procedure.

If something does go wrong, a new implant can be placed in its place. The second time around, there is a greater chance that the implant will be properly attached to the bone.
