All-On-X Dental Implants Q&A

Why Choose All-On-X?

All-on-X dental implants have emerged as the preferred way to replace teeth, offering a superior alternative to traditional dentures. This full-mouth tooth replacement procedure involves as few as four implants, allowing Dr. Alex Broesder at Parkside Dental to replace an entire arch of teeth. This eliminates the need for a mouth full of individual dental implants. One of the key advantages of the All-on-X dental implant procedure is its minimally invasive nature, resulting in shorter surgery times compared to traditional implant procedures.

Transform Your Smile in One Day

Yes, you read that correctly! All-On-X can be completed in just one day. You walk into our clinic with your current smile and leave the very same day with a perfect, new smile. This innovative approach is commonly referred to as "Teeth in a Day."

How Does All-On-X Work?

This revolutionary procedure achieves remarkable results using only four dental implants to replace up to 14 teeth! The secret lies in the strategic placement of these implants. In the past, traditional implants were inserted straight into the jawbone to replace individual teeth. All-on-X takes a different approach by angling the implants, which maximizes the utilization of available bone, resulting in a stronger and more stable foundation for your new teeth. At Parkside Dental, we believe in transparency and affordability. Regardless of the number of implants used in your case (up to a maximum of 8 implants per arch), our treatment cost remains fixed, ensuring no financial surprises for our patients.

Healing After All-On-X

Whether you are getting a single implant or undergoing the All-on-X procedure, the healing time remains the same—approximately 4 to 6 months. This period allows for osseointegration to take place, where your bone fuses with the implant, making it an integral part of your body. Think of this healing time as a "test drive" for your new teeth. Your temporary teeth, placed the same day as your procedure, serve as a preview of your permanent teeth. During this period, you have the opportunity to evaluate factors like color, shape, fit, and bite. We can make any necessary adjustments to ensure your final teeth meet your expectations.

All-On-X Dental Implants: A Natural Look

Our All-on-X prosthetics boast an unmatched level of realism, setting them apart from traditional dentures. Crafted with the finest zirconia, our in-house fabricated dental prosthetics exhibit translucency, creating a depth that mirrors natural teeth. The "gums" are meticulously hand-painted to replicate the subtle variations seen in real gum colors. At Parkside Dental, we take pride in the quality of our prosthetics. Dr. Broesder personally designs each case using the "Component Hybrid" method, known for its superior quality. Our in-house dental lab enables us to use top-notch designs and materials while passing the cost savings onto you.

Dentures vs. All-On-X Dental Implants

We're all familiar with traditional dentures, but there's a superior option: All-on-X dental implants. No other tooth replacement method looks or functions more like natural teeth.

  • Dentures:

    • Are bulky and cover the roof of your mouth, affecting your ability to fully taste foods.

    • Can slip out of place, often requiring messy adhesives.

    • Partially restore chewing ability (about 10% compared to natural teeth).

    • Sit on top of your gums, leading to rubbing and irritation, and accelerating jawbone erosion.

    • Do not promote healthy bone growth.

  • All-on-X Hybrids:

    •  Are small and lightweight, covering only the "teeth" and "gums."

    • Are permanent and clean like natural teeth, with no hassle of removal.

    • Restore 95% of chewing ability.

    • Are implanted into your jawbone, fitting comfortably in your mouth.

    • Promote healthy bone growth, maintaining facial structure and a youthful appearance.

Why Healing Teeth are Important

Healing teeth serve several crucial purposes: 

  1. Ensure You're Never Without Teeth: You won't be without teeth during the 4 to 6 month healing period.
  2. Customize Your Final Teeth: Use this time to evaluate the color, shape, fit, and bite of your teeth. Your temporaries act as a "test drive" for your permanent teeth.
  3. Protect Your Implants: Healing teeth are designed to break if you attempt to eat hard or chewy foods, preventing damage to your healing implants. Your final hybrid is durable and won't break easily.
  4. Quick Replacements: In case your temporary hybrid breaks, our on-site dental lab can swiftly 
    replace it using our 3D printers.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

While dental implants may not be suitable for everyone, factors such as the condition of your jawbone play a crucial role in determining candidacy.
Certain conditions, like smoking, diabetes, or extended periods without teeth, can cause bone loss, making implant placement challenging.

However, All-on-X treatment often requires less jawbone than traditional implants, increasing the chances of being a candidate. Moreover, dental implants can stimulate bone growth, preserving your facial structure and enhancing your appearance.

At Parkside Dental, we offer a FREE ALL-ON-X CONSULTATION to help you determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.
