Enjoy All the Benefits of Having a Full Mouth of Teeth With All-on-X

If you’ve been missing your teeth for a while, you may have done some research on how to replace them. Or, if you’ve been wearing conventional dentures, you may have been searching for a better, more comfortable way to get your teeth back.

With any research into missing teeth, you no doubt came across information about dental implants. They are the best way to replace any missing teeth, as they will chemically fuse with your jawbone and help keep it healthy. With a typical dental implant procedure, the process often takes several months from start to finish, as the implants have to heal and fuse properly.

However, with an All-on-X implant procedure, the team at Above the Gate Dentistry offers a fantastic option that will allow you get your implants and new teeth in less time – all on the same day, in most cases.  We’ll use just four implants to anchor a full arch of fixed teeth.

Here’s how the process will work:

  • Your dentist plans your placement procedure using digital X-rays and 3-D imaging beforehand.
  • Your dentist will numb your mouth and place the implants in your jaw(s) in precise locations using a computer-guided procedure.
  • They will then attach a set of temporary teeth to the implants. You can immediately use these teeth for smiling, biting, and chewing.
  • Your final restorations will be crafted by our lab partner during the period your implants are fully healing.
  • You’ll return to our office after we receive them, and your dentist will secure your restorations to the implants.

In some situations, we may recommend using six dental implants per arch. If your jaw is slightly weak or more stability is needed, we will use the extra two implants to ensure you get the results and dental implant experience you expect.
