Are you dealing with gum disease, multiple infected teeth, or a denture that needs to be replaced?

Then you should be looking for a permanent solution to restore your healthy smile.

And that’s where dental implants come in – one of the most popular and effective treatments for replacing missing teeth.

However, dental implants come in numerous forms, so which option is the right one for you?

And that’s Dr. Klooster’s cue:

Dr. Klooster has been trained by some of the best dental professionals from around the country to be able to help you make that choice – and, no matter what your choice is, they’ll ensure the process is:

  • Highly successful
  • Pain-free
  • Affordable

So let’s take a look at the two main options – All-on-X dental implants and implant-retained dentures – and compare them side by side.

All-on-X Dental Implants

All-on-X implants provide a full smile without needing individual implants for each tooth.

These are perfect for patients who are missing all their teeth or need an entire arch replaced due to decay or damage.

The All-on-X system consists of four or more strategically placed titanium posts that act as anchors for an entire arch of teeth. Since you’ll be replacing more than a dozen teeth with just four implant installations, you can see the benefit.

This type of implant is known for its durability and longevity.

It’s often favored because it requires fewer visits to the dentist than other implant solutions and offers increased stability compared to traditional bridgework or partial dentures.

On top of all that, All-on-X offers additional advantages over other implant solutions, including faster healing times and less bone grafting required.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Similarly to All-on-X, implant-retained dentures also involve placing four-to-six titanium screws into your jawbone that act as artificial roots.

The screws are then used to attach a custom-fit denture plate that holds your replacement teeth securely in place.

This procedure offers increased stability compared to removable dentures and can also help preserve your jawbone from further deterioration due to missing teeth.

Furthermore, this solution is less invasive than All-on-X as it does not require any major surgery like cutting away any of your remaining teeth or gums.

Last but not least, since the denture plate is removable, it can easily be taken out for cleaning and maintenance purposes.

Conclusion: Both Systems Are Great At What They Do

Ultimately, both All-on-X dental implants and implant-retained dentures offer excellent solutions for restoring your smile and lost teeth.

When considering your dental implant options, it’s important to keep in mind:

  1. Your budget,
  2. How many teeth you’re missing,
  3. And how much time you’re willing to invest in maintaining your new smile over time.

Fortunately, there are several different options available, so no matter what your needs may be, there’s sure to be an option that works best for you!

Dr. Klooster and his team will go into great detail about each option, the process, and the cost so that you can rest assured knowing that you’ve made a fully informed decision about which type of dental implant is right for you.

No matter which route you choose, you can be confident knowing you’ll have a beautiful, healthy new smile from a trusted provider.
