An implant is a dental restoration that replaces a tooth or multiple missing teeth. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, a bridge to replace multiple teeth, or even a full denture to replace an entire upper or lower arch.
Implants are made of three parts:
- A titanium post that acts as the tooth root.
- A connector piece called an abutment that attaches to the top of the titanium post.
- A dental restoration, which replaces the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gum line.
All-on-X implant dentures are full arch replacement teeth that are secured using four dental implants. Using an All-on-X procedure, your dentist at Day Dental Implants & Dentures, who serves locations like Moorhead, MN, 56529, 56560, 56561, 56562, 56563, can replace an entire set of missing teeth using only four dental implants rather than having separate implant posts for each missing tooth.
Benefits of All-on-X Implants
All-on-X dental implants provide several benefits over traditional dentures. They are permanent and stable, which means that you do not need to worry about them slipping out of place or falling out when you eat or speak. Not only are removable dentures a nuisance, but they can also interfere with speech, causing you to lisp.
Finally, all-on-X implants are convenient. You can care for them just like your natural teeth. All you have to do is brush and floss and schedule regular dental cleanings.

What Should I Expect During My All-on-X Implant Procedure?
Your dentist will first do a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health and medical history. This evaluation helps him determine whether you’re a good candidate for all-on-X implants. If you are, he’ll begin the procedure with a series of oral surgeries. He’ll place each dental implant in your jaw, and he’ll use screws to anchor the implants to your jawbone. Your dentist will attach temporary dentures to the dental implants till the site heals. Once osseointegration is completed, you will return to our dental office to have permanent dentures placed.
