I had the all on four fitted about 5 weeks ago. When I first had them fitted everything was ok.


Now when I eat food it is getting under the implants. This is happening on the lower jaw on the left hand side and right hand side. It's happening at the back. I struggle to get the food back out.


Sometimes my breath stinks because the food becomes rotten.


My dentists says it is normal for food to get under the all on four. Is this true?


For the first ten days no food was getting under the all on four.


When I use the dental water jet I am amazed at how much food comes out from under my all on four implants.

Good day

It is important to keep the areas as clean as possible. Home oral hygiene and continuous dental check-ups is important. If you don't clean out the food, the gum can get inflamed and lead to eventual bone loss and then implant loss.
