I just got the all on four. I hate my final prosthetic. I feel like the dentist made this and this was not made in a lab.i wish I could get it made somewhere else. What are my options? I got stuck in a bad position my dentist had the dental assistant do you mostly all of my work. She claims she was a dentist in Mexico and went to dental school for one year. This is not what I wanted. I paid 30,000 for this upper and it feels so wrong.

Go back and discuss all of your concerns. You paid a lot of money and the team should make it right. If you feel that your concerns aren't being addressed, you may consider filing a complaint with the licensing authorities.

This is so hard I don’t even know where to begin i found a doctor I think is highly educated in implants. we decide to do the all on four on top and remove my two teeth in the very back on the bottom. We also did two implants on the bottom which was another 10,000 on top of the 30,000 for the top. my first appointment the dental assistant did my impression which it was falling out of my mouth and I had to reach up and push it in before I could tell her it was falling. She does another one wasn’t feeling confident. So the next time I see the doctor he removes my teeth and puts in my implants and bone grafts and attaches my temporary. After ‘‘tis point all my future appointments were with a girl from Mexico that practiced there but I don’t believe is licensed here. She said she had to go to to school for a year after she graduated high school to get her license in Mexico. So couple weeks after I get the implants on the top I go to the appointments and the doctor removes my stitches and then places the two implants on the bottom with bone graphs. Is it normal to do that with just numbing medication? Just curious..... also when the doctor put in my temp bridge it was messed up and had to go back to lab and I had to be sedated for a couple extra hours......
wonder why. when we came out after surgery he said he was sorry my temporary was perfect bad he will make sure my final results are. Time comes for me to get my two teeth on the bottom there were two quarter inch black slashes on the tooth. I asked the dental assistant which is the one who installed them about it she didn’t know. I asked her why would a lab send something like this over here.(paid $5000 for that tooth) she did ask me if I wanted her to grind about it and I was a little disgusted no I was concerned with the integrity of my tooth and my final result. now I’m wondering what type of imaging they’re going to do for my final prosthetic on top. I want to the appointment and once again the dental assistant is doing everything. She has a scannerconnected to a computer screen and is taking images of my messed up temporary. Then I did an impression of my temporary. Then she had some caulking gun and squiet some purple stuff along my front bite line and that was it. I thought maybe they would take an impression of my gums seeing how they have change so much after surgery. I thought at some point someone would see how my implants are doing the doctor hasn’t looked at them since I got the stitches out. One of them I can wiggle back and forth with my tongue. Are they supposed to be like that? I don’t even know what kind of implants I have or what my teeth are made of. And my permanent all on four feels cheap and poorly made.I don’t feel I can talk to him about this without insulting him. Is there a place where I can go to find out what happened to me where they can check his work out?

Implants aren't supposed to move or wiggle with your tongue. You aren't supposed to get crowns with black slashes. I don't understand how you can pay so much money and get poor results. What currency did you pay and what location did you get it done...I'm not understanding any of this.

American currency..... I got it done in northern california. This guy has written books and teaches implants. The dental assistant plainly saw the black slashes on that tooth when she put it in my mouth. I saw it when I looked in the mirror on the way home the next time I saw her I mentioned it and she said oh yeah I saw that too do you want me to remove it. I just have a feeling they’re making stuff there and acting like they’re working with the a lab. I paid a lot of money for my prosthetic it sure doesn’t look or feel like it. The dentist hasn’t looked at my implants since he took my stitches out. The tooth I can wiggle the implant with my tounge has always been like that it’s never changed. The dental assistant has taken it off and put it back on several times but never touched or inspected the implant. I’m lost, I don’t know how to handle this.

Also that implant is sticking out from the plate and my bottom teeth are using it as a chewing surface. In fact when I close my teeth the implant is the first thing it hits as all my bite seems to be on my front teeth also.

I'm sorry to say that implants aren't supposed to be like that. They should not be movable. That means the bone did not integrate into the implant which means failure. The crown should not be biting first. Implants don't have Periodontal ligaments (shock absorbers for the teeth) and cannot tolerate forces like natural teeth. The implant team needs to address it...surgical team on integration and restorative team on bite and esthetics. If not, may need to file complaint with the California Dental Board.
