With extensive gum loss, does an upper All-on-8 temp and/or perm prosthesis have to sit partially on the palate? See Q2 below.

Sorry to hear you are having problemsI would certainly bring this to the attention of your dentist straight away.The temp is not just a temp but should be a preview of the final. Everything has to be resolved in this prosthesis before you go to the final.You can imagine what it would be like if you went straight to the final and were having these issuesThe temp is used to work out the bite, the cosmetics etc etcThe temp should be sitting on the gum but not overlapping it In regards to your question to replace the molars . If you are going back to the second molar there should be implants placed in that regionHope this answered your questions
I wish you success in your journey
Not sure which procedure you had?
All-on-Four is usually palateless
This also replaces your molars, making chewing much more comfortable.

There are some cases where it can be very difficult to place implants in the molar area, but there are other options to treatment. These treatments can give you the feel as if you do have your back teeth.
