Reply To: Implants Placed at the Wrong Angle Went Right Through the Bone?


Hi Dawn,

I think I’d agree with Dr. Octavian. If your implants haven’t caused any pain or discomfort for the past seven years then I’d leave well alone, even though it is possible they are slightly too long or at the wrong angle.

All-on-4 can be a great solution for replacing an entire arch of teeth, but it might be worth you getting a second opinion from another implant dentist offering this service. Most will give you a free consultation so you should be able to get some approximate costs. If you have any dental or medical insurance, check with your provider to see if they will cover any part of this treatment. Although most providers still view dental implants as being cosmetic, it’s possible they may meet some of the costs.

Hope this helps.
