Giving Your Patients a New Smile
Most patients dread the realization that they need dentures – and for good reason. Dentures may cause pain, embarrassment and compromised function, denying patients their favorite foods. Even worse, the edentulous patient will experience bone loss over time, leading to further compromised function and dental health. Today’s denture is essentially the same technology as that of their parents’ and grandparents’ generations. It’s no wonder that for many patients, dentures makes them feel old!
However, it doesn’t need to be this way. Full arch rehabilitation, also known as All-on-X surgery, addresses the challenges of dentures by providing a full arch prosthesis supported by dental implants. This technique fully restores both function and aesthetics while also addressing the underlying anatomical challenges that originally contributed to the tooth loss.
In the early days, the All-on-X procedure involved a freehand surgical technique combined with a lengthy retrofitting of the patient’s denture to the newly placed implants. Once the implants had healed, patients often upgraded to a prosthesis fabricated from modern high-tech materials, such as zirconia or nano-ceramic, to achieve greater performance and an even more natural look and feel. Unfortunately, all of this necessitates an extraordinarily long surgical procedure and numerous trial-and-error appointments to get to an acceptable final result.
NDX nSequence revolutionized the All-on-X procedure by pioneering the guided surgical technique, making All-on-X surgeries easier and faster, and by creating outcomes that are more predictable. Surgeons who utilize nSequence take advantage of CT imaging and the latest CAD/CAM technology to meticulously plan the entire case, considering both aesthetics and improved anatomical function. Then, during surgery, the surgeons use a patient-specific proprietary guide system to confidently and precisely place each implant according to the plan. This dramatically reduces the length of the surgery, eliminates many of the follow-up patient appointments and enables delivery of the prosthesis at the same time as surgery. Patients wake-up with an entirely new smile!
