The Benefits of All-on-X

Unbeatable Lifespan

Dental implants usually last 30+ years with proper care. You may be able to keep your implants for the rest of your life. And while your full-arch bridges may need to be replaced eventually, they will last much longer than a set of dentures, which need to be replaced as often as every 5 years.

Lifelike Results

All-on-X full-arch bridges are built from porcelain, which looks very similar to your natural teeth. They will look completely natural. Your new smile will feel natural, too. Because they're supported by dental implants, your new teeth will never move or shift when you chew, eat, speak, or smile.

Better Oral Health

Unlike dentures, dental implants help protect your jaw bone, and prevent bone resorption due to tooth loss. Over time, bone resorption can cause changes to your appearance and can negatively affect your oral health. With All-on-X, your dental implants stimulate your jaw bone, keep it healthy, and help preserve your appearance and your oral health, too.

The All-on-X Implant Process

Implant Placement Surgery

To begin the process, your dentist will take x-rays and develop a treatment plan. Then, your dentist will place your dental implants. They will clean and numb your mouth, then place your implants precisely based on your surgical plan. All-on-X implants are placed at a special angle to anchor them to your jaw, and provide a tight hold with multiple implants.

Healing & Building Your Fixed Bridge

Immediately after implant placement, you’ll get a temporary set of teeth. You will need to eat a soft diet and follow special recovery instructions to make sure your mouth heals properly after surgery. Initial recovery takes just a couple of weeks, but it will take up to 3-6 months for your implants to bond to your jaw. You’ll come in for some follow-ups to check your progress, and to allow your dentist to begin building your All-on-X bridges.

Final Bridge Placement

Once your mouth has healed and your All-on-X bridges are done, you’ll come to our office for a final appointment. Your dentist will remove your temporary teeth, then check the fit of your bridges. Once everything looks perfect, they’ll be permanently attached to your implants. Then, you’ll go home and enjoy your brand-new set of teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

Am I a good candidate for All-on-X implants?

All-on-X implants may be a suitable option If you have lost many of your natural teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay, or dental trauma. It is also important to note that a relatively healthy mouth and jaw are key for a successful All-on-X operation. Contact your dentist today to schedule an appointment and see if All-on-X implants are the right choice for you.

Do All-on-X implants look and feel like natural teeth?

Yes. Made of durable, quality materials, All-on-X implants look and feel just like your natural smile, and seamlessly blend in with the rest of your surrounding teeth. All-on-X implants allow you to laugh, smile, talk, and enjoy your favorite foods just as you would with a natural healthy smile. By continuing to treat your implants with care, you can prolong the look, feel, and function of your All-on-X's for years to come.

How long do All-on-X implants last?

It is important to note that All-on-X implants are made up of two separate elements: the implants and the permanently affixed Zirconia prosthetic. Our Zirconia prosthetic will last a lifetime. It is the perfect option for patients that are looking for a permanent solution.

Can All-On-X implants be done in one day?

Yes. The surgery is complete in 1 day along with extractions, implants, and prosthetic. However, the final Zirconia hybrid prosthetic is manufactured 4-6 months after surgery once healing is complete. That way, we can dial in aesthetics, phenetics, and functionality.
