Got a 4 on 1 implant done. Now my lips are very dry. I use chapstick & I'm constantly licking my lips. Is that normal?

Within the normal limits
Dry lips All on 4
If there is a chonic problem, could be the result of the positioning of the bride (TOO LONG, TOO FAR FORWARD), which limits you closing your lips.
Ask your dentist about your specific dental condition prior to proceeding.

Thank you for your question regarding dry lips post All-on-4 dental implants. If you've never had dry lips before and this is an issue, you may be having some problems with where the teeth have been positioned. Possibly, your teeth need to be re positioned so that your lips can come together a little better and that allows keeping your lips moist. When you are at rest, your lips should come together.
