Losing most or all of your natural teeth can significantly impact your quality of life, affecting your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. While traditional dentures have been an effective go-to solution for decades, they do come with their own set of challenges and don’t always vibe with everyone. That’s why our Greater Jacksonville, FL, dentists also offer revolutionary All-on-X implants for patients.

Keep reading to learn more about this game-changing tooth replacement solution that’s designed to fill in much more than one or two teeth.

What Makes All-On-X Implants Different

Built to replace a full arch of teeth using just four to six dental implants as the foundation, All-on-X is a form of restoration that delivers long-lasting stability and stunning teeth you’d swear are natural. This secure base topped by a full set of prosthetic teeth is ideal for patients who are either missing most of their natural teeth or face the prospect of extensive tooth extraction.

What sets All-on-X dental implants apart from dentures or standard bridges is their placement. The implants are surgically embedded into the jawbone instead of resting on the gums which creates a strong and durable anchor for new teeth. Not only does this ensure a secure fit, but it helps preserve jawbone density by stimulating the area and preventing the bone loss commonly associated with missing teeth.

Procedure Overview: What to Expect

The All-on-X implant procedure is a significant advancement over single-tooth replacement, requiring careful planning and precision. The process begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including dental scans and imaging, to assess your jawbone’s health and determine the optimal placement for the implants.

Once you’re deemed a suitable candidate, we’ll move on to the surgical phase where a specific amount of titanium implants will be placed strategically in the jawbone. These implants will serve as the new roots for your teeth so where they are in your jaw is crucial for distributing biting forces evenly and establishing long-term comfort.

After the dental implant surgery, our dentists will attach a temporary set of teeth to provide immediate function and aesthetics while your mouth heals and the implants integrate with your bone – a process known as osseointegration. Once your mouth has fully healed, you’ll come back into one of our offices to have the denture or non-removable teeth firmly attached to the implants.

Advantages of This Complete Smile Restoration

Opting for All-on-X implants offers numerous benefits over traditional tooth replacement options such as:

  • Durability and Stability: Unlike dentures, which can occasionally slip or shift over time, All-on-X implants aren’t going anywhere which allows you to eat, speak, and smile without worry.
  • Preservation of Jawbone:Implant-supported dentures help maintain jawbone density, preventing the facial sagging caused by tooth loss.
  • Enhanced Appearance: All-on-X implants look and feel just like natural teeth, upgrading your smile and facial aesthetics.
  • Improved Oral Health: With no need for adhesives and less hassle in cleaning compared to dentures, maintaining good oral hygiene is easier.

Recovery and Care

Recovery from All-on-X implant surgery varies, with most patients resuming normal activities within a few days. Pain and discomfort can be managed with medications prescribed by our dentists or recommended over-the-counter options. Long-term success relies on good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups to ensure the health of your implants and surrounding tissue.
