Whether you have one missing tooth or need all of your teeth removed, you don’t have to opt for dentures, which can be uncomfortable or cause issues with speaking. Dental implants stay in position, and also look and feel more natural.
One option you have for dental implants is All-On-X, which uses four screws on the top and four on the bottom. They offer the same benefits as traditional dental implants but without the lengthy process.
At your initial consultation for dental implants, our dentist determines how many crowns you need as well as how many screws or implants you require. These numbers aren’t the same for All-On-X implants. In fact, even if you replace both your upper and lower set of teeth, you only need eight implants total to support the crowns.
One of the benefits of getting All-On-X in Houston at EZ Dental Clinic is how simple the process is compared to getting implants for each missing tooth. This quickly adds up in terms of cash, and it requires a great deal of your time.
An All-On-X dental implant consists of titanium, which fuses to your natural bone. Therefore, it eventually strengthens your jaw and functions as a base for your teeth. Plus, it hinders bone loss in your jaw. When you maintain jaw bone, it can give you a more youthful appearance because you don’t have sunken spots.
You don’t have to worry about taking out your teeth to clean them. With dental implants, you brush and floss your teeth just as you did your own teeth. You just have to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and gently scrub to avoid damaging them. Even though these aren’t your own teeth, you have to visit our office for routine cleanings and examinations to determine if any issues are occurring with them.
