What are All on X Dental Implants?
Dental implants are undoubtedly one of the most important discoveries in dental history. Dental implants have changed people’s perspectives on dental restoration. All on X dental implants procedures take the restoration may batches higher.
It is important to understand the working of dental implants, to understand All-on-X implants completely.
Dental implants replace the missing or damaged tooth with an implant made of either Titanium or ceramic and the missing tooth with a crown using an abutment, which helps to connect the crown with the screw.
The All-on-X Dental Implants provide patients with an option to replace multiple missing or damaged teeth simultaneously.
What is the Procedure for All-on-X implants?
Computer-guided surgery is used to discern the satisfactory locations for implants and insert them into the bone.
A temporary denture is inserted to ensure normal functioning as the natural bone heals and grows around the implants, as it would around a natural tooth.
This process may take a few months before a full-arch denture can be fitted and permanently fastened to the implants.
Four implants are used to anchor the dental bridge which can then be placed in the top or bottom teeth, placing the implants within the jawbone simultaneously.
Thus multiple missing teeth can be used using only four implants. As the implant is made of titanium, it can fuse to the bone, becoming a part of the jawbone.
At the end of the procedure, the patient has fully functional teeth which can last a lifetime.
What are the Various Advantages of All-on-X Dental Implants?
Titanium implants are different from the traditional crowns and are designed to last a lifetime as support to zirconia implant crowns.
Zirconia is not only the most durable material in dentistry but it also matches the aesthetics of the real teeth. Zirconia crowns look great without anyone being able to tell the difference from real teeth.
The All in X Dental Implant procedure is extremely cost-efficient and involves a minimally invasive method to restore both the function of the mouth and the confidence.
The All-on-X implants procedure can be done in minimal time so much so that one can leave the office with a temporarily fixed, full-arch denture on the same day of treatment!
Bone Grafts are not a Necessity
