Everything You Need to Know About All-On-X Dental Implants?

What are All-on-X Dental Implants?

One of the most important discoveries in dental history, dental implants have changed the way people view dental restoration. The All-on-X procedure takes dental implants to the next level. 

In order to understand All-on-X implants, it is important to understand how dental implants work.

The procedure of dental implant placement consists of replacing the missing or damaged tooth with an implant that is made of either Titanium or ceramic.

The missing tooth crown is then replaced with a crown using an abutment, which connects the crown with the screw. 

The All-on-X dental implants allow patients to replace multiple missing or damaged teeth at the same time. 

 

What is the Procedure for All-on-X implants?

A trained dentist uses computer-guided surgery to determine the best locations for implants and inserts them into the bone. 

A temporary denture is usually inserted so that one can smile and eat normally while the natural bone heals and grows around the implants, just like it would around a natural tooth.

This process usually takes a few months, and then a full-arch denture is fitted and permanently secured to the implants.

A dental bridge anchored by 4 implants that can be placed in the top or bottom teeth is used in the All-on-X process, positioning the implants within the jawbone at the same time.

So, just four implants are needed to replace multiple missing teeth. Being made of titanium, the implant can fuse to the bone, becoming a part of the jawbone.
