Dental implants have revolutionized how people can restore their smiles after tooth loss. However, the process of getting dental implants can often be lengthy, especially if you’re missing most or all of your teeth. For patients who are trying to replace entire arches of teeth as quickly as possible, the Pearland dentists of Pearland Dental Group offer All-on-X implants. Learn more about the benefits of the All-on-X technique by dialing (281) 993-9900.
All-on-X dental implants are innovative full-arch dental restoration solutions designed to replace an entire set of teeth in the upper or lower jaws. The “X” represents the number of implants utilized to support a new set of permanent teeth.
These systems typically use a minimal number of titanium implants (often four to eight) strategically placed in the jawbone to provide stable support for a permanent prosthesis. The implants are surgically positioned, with a specific angulation and distribution to maximize bone contact and provide optimal stability.
The benefits of All-on-X treatment include:
You may qualify for All-on-X dental implants if any of the following apply to you:
The process starts with a detailed consultation with one of our Pearland dentists. During this session, your oral health, medical history, and specific needs are assessed. Your dentist also discusses treatment options, expectations, and the All-on-X procedure with you.
After the consultation, we’ll employ advanced imaging technology to plan the treatment. Digital scans, X-rays, and impressions help create a customized treatment plan, determining the optimal placement and design of the implants.
The surgical phase involves placing the implants into the jawbone. The number and positioning of the implants in the jaw bone are strategically determined to support the full-arch restoration. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort.
Following implant placement, your new prosthesis is often affixed on the same day. The load-bearing capabilities of All-on-X implants can provide patients with immediate teeth and functionality. The implants will integrate with the bone (osseointegration), which typically takes a few months, but you’ll leave Pearland Dental Group with your new smile the same day as your appointment.
Caring for All-on-X implants is crucial for their long-term success. Here’s a list of aftercare tips:
All-on-X implants are specifically designed for individuals with substantial bone loss. Techniques like bone grafting or utilizing areas with better bone density can often accommodate these implants, making them suitable for many patients with bone loss issues.
Yes, the All-on-X procedure can be performed on both the upper or lower jaw or jaws, depending on your needs. It’s a versatile solution for replacing an entire arch of teeth in either or both jaws.
While rare, if an implant encounters issues, your implant dentist will assess the situation. In some cases, the implant might be salvageable through treatments. If necessary, a replacement or alternative solution will be discussed before implant surgery.
Insurance coverage for All-on-X implants varies widely. While some plans may offer partial coverage for the procedure or the replacement teeth, it’s not guaranteed. Coverage depends on the specific insurance plan, the reason for needing implants, and individual conditions. It’s essential to consult both your insurance provider and dental care professional to understand the extent of coverage and potential costs before proceeding with the All-on-X procedure.
