You’ve probably heard about it and wondered: is it possible to replace all of the teeth in your mouth with just four implants? Here at Surprise Oral & Implant Surgery, we’re excited to tell you it is possible thanks to all the modern advances in dental implants and we can help you achieve it, too.
Tooth loss is very common in adults, and even more as we grow older. Believe it or not, tens of millions of people in America alone are missing their lower and upper teeth. Instead of giving up comfort and having to deal with dentures, these people are choosing All-on-X Dental Implant treatments.
How Does it Work?
To properly understand how it works, we first need to explain what dental implants are. Dental implants are small titanium screws that we place in your jawbone to substitute a missing tooth’s root. Inserting the implants requires minor surgery, and once that’s done, we will attach crowns, so you have a functional and realistic-looking prosthetic tooth. You won’t need to get an implant for each tooth that you’re missing. You’ll only need four strategically placed implants on the bottom of your mouth, and another four at the top to get your smile back.
Since the implant is made out of titanium, it’s capable of fusing with your bone and then functioning together with it. Thus, your dental implant will eventually be part of your jawbone and be a strong, durable base for your teeth. There is also another benefit to this, aside from keeping your implants permanently in place: it prevents jawbone loss. This will help you keep better oral health and also make your facial structure look more youthful. You’ll see how easily and quickly, the All-on-X treatment can change your life.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
Thanks to the expertise and knowledge of our team, and the incredibly precise technology used by the All-on-X treatment, we’re able to give most of our patients a brand-new smile in only one day.
Our office’s approach works especially well for patients who are missing most of their teeth since our team of experts, technicians and our equipment is in one facility working only for you. We can attach a hybrid prosthesis to your implants at the same time while you are completely sedated. You can leave our clinic with a beautiful set of teeth that look natural and function just like your original teeth, in a single visit.
However, even though you’ll have a new set of teeth and a perfect smile in a single visit, you’ll have to come back once again in the future. Dental implants can take some time to heal completely and integrate with your jawbone, so at that point, we’ll set you up for a follow-up appointment to replace the temporary teeth with permanent ones.
