How painful is the AO4 implant procedure? What is the recovery from A04 like?

While all oral surgeries involve some discomfort, the All-on-4 procedure is often less painful because it does not involve bone grafting, months of denture use, or more than four implants per tooth arch. Patients will be sedated during the procedure and will experience some swelling and discomfort afterward, but many recover within days and return to normal activities, including work, within a week. Because your teeth rest on the implants instead of the gums, many patients report much less pain than with other similar solutions.
