Implant - All on X

Updated: Oct 4, 2023



Dental "All-on-X" rehabilitation, also known as full arch implant rehabilitation, is a comprehensive dental treatment option for patients with severely compromised or missing teeth. It involves the placement of dental implants in the jawbone to support a fixed prosthesis that replaces an entire arch of teeth (either upper or lower) in the mouth.


The "All-on-X" concept refers to the use of a minimum number of dental implants (typically four or more) strategically positioned in the jawbone to provide stability and support for the full arch prosthesis. The "X" represents the number of implants used, which can vary depending on the patient's specific needs.


This treatment approach offers several advantages

, including improved aesthetics, enhanced chewing function, and increased comfort compared to traditional removable dentures. It also helps preserve the jawbone and prevents further bone loss by stimulating the underlying bone structure.


The procedure typically involves careful planning, including diagnostic imaging and treatment planning using computer-guided technology. It may also require any necessary tooth extractions, bone grafting, or sinus augmentation to ensure sufficient bone support for the dental implants.


Following the initial surgical phase, a temporary prosthesis is usually placed while the implants integrate with the jawbone. Once the healing process is complete, a final, custom-designed permanent prosthesis is fabricated and attached to the dental implants, providing a natural-looking and functional set of teeth.


It's important to note that "All-on-X" rehabilitation is a


complex procedure that requires expertise in oral surgery, prosthodontics, and restorative dentistry. A thorough evaluation and consultation with a dental professional are necessary to determine if a patient is a suitable candidate for this treatment option.
