All-on-x is a minimally invasive and advanced dental implant technique that replaces an entire row of teeth. The procedure involves inserting at least four implants into the jaw to support a full arch (upper or lower) with fixed, non-removable replacement teeth. This treatment is ideal for patients with failing teeth, edentulous jaws, or who are unhappy with their removable prosthetic.

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Thanks to technological advancement, we can enjoy life without the stigma and challenges of losing teeth. Many problems arise if you have lost multiple teeth or have an ill-fitting denture. The list goes on and on, not eating comfortably, not chewing as best as possible, smiling, going out with friends and family. We want you to have the life you wish; teeth should not be the deciding factor. When you have missing teeth or have dental problems, an all-on-x procedure might be right for you!
Who should get
A common misconception is that you need a lot of bone to get dental implants. That isn't true; all-on-x implants are specifically designed to use bone where it exists and not waste it on areas where there isn't much.
All-on-x dental implants are an excellent option for people who miss one or more teeth and want to restore their smile. Additionally, this is an ideal procedure for someone with no bone density to support a complete set of individual implants, the time to have individual implants placed, or the budget to pay for them.
The benefits of
With all-on-x, you no longer need to worry about the usual problems associated with dentures. You can have a complete set of teeth in one easy procedure. Our dental practice is dedicated to helping patients achieve the best smile possible. We believe in creating natural and long-lasting solutions so that you can benefit from healthy teeth in the present but also put your mind at ease for many years to come.
The process of getting
procedure at Apex Dental Studio
While a dentist may make the process look easy, surgery is a complex procedure that we can complete at an efficient pace. Here's the general process of getting an all-on-x procedure - It's a journey, but we love to be a part of it with you.
Step 1. Evaluation and Records
A thorough examination is essential for the placement of dental implants. We want to ensure that you receive the highest quality dental implant possible, so we take time during your initial consultation.
All records will help dictate the surgery / the location and number of implants / as well as any limitations that we all should know. We can see all critical information (Where bone/sinus/nerves are located) so that your teeth will look amazing and function as best they can. This guide will help us position the implant exactly where we want it to be.
Step 2. Schedule Surgery day
Apex will contact patients through a phone call to discuss possible surgery days. Once the date is set, the patient will receive all pre-operations paperwork that contains all the do's and don'ts while waiting for the surgery date. Apex will also then proceed to order all necessary implant materials.
Step 3. Surgery day
Two days before the surgery, Apex will reach out to the patient through a phone call to go over and answer any needed questions. The surgery will begin in the morning after a good night's rest - your existing teeth and any remnants of such will be extracted, and excess and/or damaged gum tissue will be removed to make room for the implants.
Step 4. Delivery of Temporary
Dental implants will be surgically placed, and temporary teeth will be delivered. The patient will undergo test bite and adjustments as needed. The patient will be asked for aesthetic feedback, noting all comments for the next visit.
Step 5. Follow-ups
After your procedure, the dentist will ensure you understand how to care for your mouth as you recover correctly. Each new set of teeth comes new and better. You will be provided with a list of foods to avoid and instructions on keeping your mouth clean.
A week to a year after the temporaries are delivered, the patient will be closely monitored for adjustments, suture removal and continued oral hygiene check.
