What Are All-on-X and Teeth in a Day?
As the name implies, All-on-X replaces an entire arch of teeth using only four dental implants. Your jaw is comprehensively mapped to determine the areas where it has the most density. We do this so we can place your new implants in areas of your jaw that will maximize their longevity and strength. Once placed, our dentist will affix your new arch of teeth on the same day as your implant surgery. We will schedule follow-up visits to monitor your progress and perform any relining required to ensure optimal comfort.
We do everything we can to minimize the number of dental implants used. Teeth in a Day uses the same techniques as All-on-X but, should your situation require it, could include placing more than four implant posts for greater stability. In both cases, our goal is to place your new arch of teeth on the day of your surgery. Though we will also perform bone grafts and sinus lifts when needed, we try and find areas in your jaw that don’t require these procedures.
Do You Qualify for All-on-X or Teeth in a Day in Norco?
Some of the areas we consider when determining if you are a good candidate for All-on-X or Teeth in a Day include:
Condition of Your Jawbone – To achieve the highest level of success, your jaws need to have sufficient density and strength to hold an implant post securely. If you have been missing teeth for an extended period of time, it is likely that you have suffered from some bone loss. Bone grafts and sinus lifts can help strengthen the bone and make receiving dental implants a viable procedure.
Gum Health – Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, can make placing implants difficult and less secure. If not treated, it can also lead to complications after surgery that could cause your new teeth to fail. Our team works with a periodontist who comes into our office to perform laser-assisted new attachment procedures (LANAP) to restore the health of your gums. We ensure any underlying oral health issues are dealt with before recommending implant surgery.
Your Remaining Teeth – Though dental implants can significantly improve your quality of life, our goal is always to help you maintain the health and beauty of your natural teeth. Our dentist will examine your remaining teeth to see if preserving and restoring them with other options will fit your needs and oral health. If your existing teeth are no longer viable, we will perform extractions where needed and prepare your jaws and gums for your new prosthetics.
