SNAPINDENTURES OR ALL ON 4 by NOBELBIOCARE
yes , you have a solution and can be with any of this 2 options, or either snapindentures or All on 4 , by Nobel biocare. The difference is that with SNAPINDENTURES are removable but you do not have roof of the palate, strong and also very aesthetical.
ALL ON 4 by NOBEL BIOCARE is a great solution that is screwretained , you do not take them out, and you will also have shape, size and color to be changed.
Of course you have a solution, you just need to have a smile analysis , a good diagnose , and you will love your smile.
Candidiate for All on 4
You would certainly be a candidate for the all on 4 but your risks would be much higher because of the smoking.
Although i totally understand that quitting smoking is hard, you have a tough decision to make. Continue to smoke and have a increased risk of failure or start to enjoy life again with fixed permanent teeth and increased confidence
Wish you the best of luck in your journey
All on 4 and hybrid dentures
Thanks for your question. A hybrid restoration, including all on 4 require healthy bone that would allow proper healing and maintenance of bones and gum around the implants. Smoking would put you at serious risk of implant failure. I would suggest that you stop smoking before doing a hybrid restoration. On the other hand, an implant supported denture, even with mini implants, will give you a more solid attachment of the denture and proper chewing.
