All-On-X Same Day Teeth
Same-day dentures are possible with new All-On-X technology. With as few as four dental implants, you can receive a permanent dental arch, either upper or lower, on the same day. This new procedure allows many patients to bypass uncomfortable traditional dentures or the long wait for permanent implants with previous technologies.
What is All-On-X?
With the revolutionary All-On-X dental implants, a complete denture can be fixed in place with as few as four implants. A temporary denture is already prepared and waiting for the big day when you will have the implants placed. This temporary denture is worn for a short time until the permanent set of teeth is ready. Unlike traditional dentures, these aren’t removable. And unlike conventional implants, with All-On-X, as few as four implants are needed for an entire upper or lower denture.
What Should You Expect?
You will already have met with your dentist prior to the tooth implant procedure to ensure you are a good candidate for same-day dentures and make any necessary preparations. On surgery day, you will receive a sedative and anesthetic, and then any necessary extractions will be performed before placing the implants into the bone.
After the surgery is complete, your denture will be fitted to the abutments that were just placed. After All-On-X surgery, you will need to follow a modified diet for up to six months while the bone heals around the implants. However, your teeth, gums and bones will be just as strong as natural teeth after this healing period.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Same-day dentures are a fantastic option for many patients in good general health with strong bones. Your dentist will go over your medical history and imaging to ensure All-On-X permanent dentures are a good option for you. You may be asked to quit smoking before your procedure if you are a smoker.
