Receive A New Smile With All-on-X
Losing teeth can negatively impact your self-esteem and oral health. At Alba Dental Centre, our London, ON dentists recommend dental implants to replace missing teeth. However, if you’re missing multiple teeth or an entire arch, singular dental implants can be expensive and time-consuming.
That’s why at Alba Dental Centre, we offer All-on-X implants as an alternative, same-day solution to traditional dental implants for patients in London, ON, and surrounding areas. Learn how you can maintain optimal oral function and aesthetics with All-on-X implants.
What Is All-on-X?
All-on-X uses a minimal number of dental implants to secure a complete denture arch. This revolutionary method gives you the stable, functional, and attractive solution you’ve been looking for. Best of all, your dentures can be placed on the same day as your implant, so you don’t have to wait to get the restored smile you deserve.
Benefits of All-on-X
There are many benefits when you choose All-on-X, including:
- Full-arch restoration with the least amount of implants often greatly reduces your treatment, recovery time, and bill.
- Reduces the need for bone graft surgery while ensuring greater stability in the existing bone. All-on-X is especially useful for patients who initially didn’t qualify for implants due to bone loss.
- All-on-X implants are more comfortable than traditional dentures because they’re more secure and feel more like natural teeth.
- You won’t have to worry about your dentures slipping or falling out while you eat, smile, or speak due to the sturdy foundation.
- Eliminates the need for foul-tasting, sticky denture adhesive.
The All-on-X Process
During your initial consultation, one of our dentists will perform a thorough examination. We’ll go over your medical history, take X-rays and impressions of your teeth, and go over your smile goals with you. You can use this time to ask questions you may have.
The information we gather helps us determine if All-on-X is right for you. If we determine that All-on-X suits your unique dental needs, we’ll craft your personalized treatment plan.
You’ll come back to our London, ON office to get started on your All-on-X placement. Before placing your implants, one of our dentists will thoroughly clean your mouth and use a local anesthetic to numb the area. We’ll also provide you with your choice of sedation dentistry if you choose.
Using precise tools, one of our dentists will make a small incision in your gums to surgically place your implants. Once your implants are placed, we’ll secure your dentures and you’ll begin your healing period. For the next three to six months, you’ll go through the osseointegration process. This process allows your implant to naturally fuse with your jawbone to create a sturdy foundation.
Frequently Asked Questions
▼ How much does All-on-X cost?
The cost of your All-on-X dental implants will depend on several factors such as how many implants are needed, your choice of sedation, and your insurance coverage. We recommend speaking to your insurance provider beforehand to learn more about your coverage plan and policy.
During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with detailed information about your treatment plan as well as the estimated cost. If you have any questions about financing, call our London, ON office at (519) 777-2020 and one of our friendly staff will be happy to assist you.
▼ How long does All-on-X last?
All-on-X implants can last for twenty years to a lifetime, although your denture will need replacement every 15 years due to normal wear and tear. To get the most out of your implants and dentures, we recommend that you follow the instructions:
- Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes
- Floss daily, preferably before bed
- Rinse in between meals
- Visit our London, ON office biannual for professional cleanings and checkups
▼ Does All-on-X require bone grafting?
All-on-X doesn’t require bone grafting. Instead, we make use of your existing jawbone structure, eliminating the need for bone grafting. Additionally, the osseointegration process allowing implants to fuse with your jawbone creates a stable foundation and helps prevent your jawbone from shrinking any further. If you have bone loss, you may still be eligible for All-on-X! Request an appointment online and schedule your consultation at Alba Dental Centre now to get started today.
▼ When can I eat again after the All-on-X procedure?
After your procedure, the surgical site will be tender for the first few days. Most people return to their normal diet after a month. However, it’s important to discuss with your dentist to learn more about what you can eat during the healing process and when you can eat normally again. We’ll provide you with instructions to follow during your healing period to ensure your implants integrate smoothly.
