All on 4 (2)

During the 4-6 month period, it will be ideal for you to eat only soft foods, however, most patients will be able to eat whatever they can cut with a fork.

Ideally, all of the work would be done in one visit providing that at the time of implant placement the maxillofacial surgeon is able to achieve the minimum insertion torque required. If the torque is good enough the temporary fixed bridges could be placed, if the torque is not good enough then a removable denture will be needed as a temporary.
