Restore a Full Arch of Missing Teeth
Patients who are missing a full arch of teeth often assume that restoring their smile with dental implants will be too inconvenient or expensive. Thankfully, advancements in technology have made it so you don’t have to replace each tooth individually. Instead, Dr. Wirth can customize a set of full dentures just for you and anchor it to your jaw with only four to six implants.
The implants are strategically placed to maximize your available bone tissue, eliminating the need for a bone graft. This makes All-on-X an ideal option for patients who previously wore removable dentures and have suffered from jawbone deterioration.
Best of all, Dr. Wirth can place all of your implants in one appointment and provide you with fully functional temporary teeth. This means you won’t have to live with gaps in your smile while you wait for your permanent restoration.
Benefits of All-on-X
All-on-X offers several advantages that traditional dentures can’t match, including:
- Doesn’t require a bone graft
- Natural-looking and attractive
- Minimal recovery time
- Restores full chewing strength
- Easy to clean
- Won’t slide around or fall out
- Stimulates healthy jawbone growth
- Long-lasting results
During your initial visit, you’ll undergo a thorough full mouth examination. Dr. Wirth will begin evaluating your oral health with Cone Beam X-ray Technology to determine eligibility. From there, Dr. Wirth will review your medical and dental history, and ask about your smile goals. This information will determine whether All-on-X is right for you.
All-on-X doesn’t require a strong jawbone the way that traditional implants do. This allows many patients who don’t qualify for implants to take advantage of All-on-X. By avoiding a bone graft, patients can also save time and money.
For patients who have lived with missing teeth for a long time or previously wore dentures, All-on-X offers a solution that wasn’t previously available. Thanks to this innovative technique, more patients can enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile than ever before.
