In the San Fernando Valley, maintaining great dental health is a priority for many patients. One new procedure that offers a quantum leap beyond previous dental implant methods is the All-on-X dental implant. This procedure can be life-changing for individuals who have lost multiple teeth or are facing complete tooth loss.

So what is an All-on-X dental implant, and why are so many patients choosing this option? Read on for a primer on this new procedure from Mission Hills Dental in Granada Hills.

What are All-on-X Dental Implants?

All-on-X dental implants, sometimes referred to as All-on-4, All-on-6, or All-on-8, depending on the number of implants used, provide a full set of replacement teeth supported by a few strategically placed dental implants. Until recently, dentists had to painstakingly install each implant one by one, but with this method, an entire row of replacement teeth can be installed at once.

The Procedure

The All-on-X procedure begins with a comprehensive dental evaluation. Mission Hills Dental employs advanced imaging techniques to assess the patient’s oral health and bone structure. This information helps you plan the precise placement of the implants.

The surgery is typically performed under anesthesia. During the procedure, the dentist places the implants into the jawbone at precisely calculated angles, unlike standard implants, which are inserted vertically. This strategic placement often eliminates the need for bone grafting. The healing process takes about 4-6 months, during which the implants fuse to the jawbone, and the final step comes when the new row of teeth is attached.

Benefits of All-on-X Dental Implants

  • Longevity: As long as you care for them like you care for your natural teeth, All-on-X implants can last a lifetime.
  • Bone Preservation: Dental implants prevent the bone loss that typically occurs with missing teeth by stimulating the jawbone. This helps maintain facial structure and prevents the sunken appearance often associated with dentures.
  • Comfort and Stability: Unlike dentures, which can slip and cause discomfort, All-on-X implants are securely anchored to the jawbone. This stability allows patients to use their new teeth without worry.
  • Enhanced Confidence: A spotless smile can significantly boost self-esteem and improve quality of life.

Caring for Your New Implants

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial to care for your new implants. Make sure to brush twice a day, floss once a day, and visit the dentist twice a year for regular checkups.
