All-on-X Dental Implants

What are They and What do They Cost?

All-on-X Dental Implants offer a solution for replacing a full set of teeth with fewer implants than the number of teeth being replaced. This permanent treatment is minimally invasive and more cost-effective compared to receiving a full set of individual dental implants. Like any treatment, All-on-X dental implants have their pros and cons, including considerations about cost, treatment process, patient eligibility, and more.

What are All-on-X Implants?

All-on-X dental implants involve a minimally invasive procedure to replace a full set of missing teeth. Unlike traditional methods, this approach allows for the replacement of all teeth without the need for multiple surgeries. Typically completed in a single appointment using local anesthesia, All-on-X implants offer a comprehensive solution for individuals with significant tooth loss or irreparable dental issues.

Appearance of All-on-X Implants

All-on-X implants consist of titanium screws, usually 4 (All-on-4) or 6, inserted into the jawbone to support a denture. The denture, made of gum-colored plastic or resin, is customized to blend seamlessly with your natural gum line. Artificial teeth, crafted from acrylic resin, are attached to the denture to replicate the appearance of natural teeth, ensuring a natural-looking smile.

All-on-X Treatment Process

The treatment process for All-on-X implants typically involves several steps:

  • Examination: Your dentist will assess your oral health, including bone density and facial structure, to develop a personalized treatment plan.
  • Scans and X-rays: CT scans and 3D imaging help determine the optimal position for implant placement and identify vital structures like sinuses and nerves.
  • Computer simulation: Digital technology aids in planning the placement of implants for optimal support and stability.
  • Surgery: Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to support the new crowns or artificial teeth. Depending on individual circumstances, temporary teeth may be provided during the healing process.
  • Maintenance: Following recovery, regular oral hygiene practices and professional maintenance are essential to ensure the longevity of All-on-X implants.

Who is Eligible for All-on-X?

Individuals who have lost all or most of their teeth and desire a permanent solution for tooth replacement are suitable candidates for All-on-X implants. Even those with compromised bone density can often benefit from this type of implant, thanks to various placement techniques available.

Additional Treatment Needed with All-on-X

Depending on your oral health, additional procedures such as extractions, bone grafts, or sinus lifts may be necessary to prepare for All-on-X implants. These procedures help optimize bone density and create a stable foundation for implant placement.

All-on-X Dental Implants Recovery

Following implant placement, a recovery period of 4 to 6 months is typical as the implants integrate with the jawbone. During this time, temporary crowns may be worn, allowing for adjustments to be made before receiving permanent crowns. While full recovery takes several months, patients usually begin to feel better within a few days, with caution advised to avoid disturbing the surgical sites.

All-on-X Dental Implants Cost

While All-on-X implants represent a significant investment, they are more affordable than individual dental implants for a full arch. For personalized cost estimates and financing options, schedule a FREE Smile Consultation with Dr. Arunagiri to explore the best restorative option for your needs.
