options for missing teeth


There are several ways to replace your missing teeth. Dr. Salim be able to recommend the best option for you, whether it’s a denture, bridge, or implant after a complete evaluation. If dentures are recommended, there are several types  – each made from different materials and serving different purposes. It’s important to understand what the benefits of the different types are when deciding what is best for you. Below are some of the options.

traditional dentures


Traditional dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

A denture closely resembles natural gum tissue and teeth. Dr. Salim can make dentures that fit comfortably, appear natural and help you stay healthier.

non removable denture

fixed bridges and implants


Dentures do not always have to come in and out of your mouth.  With modern technology like the X-Nav system, Dr. Salim can arrange for the placement of your dental implants with precision and accuracy. To these implants, she will fix or adhere a custom-contoured denture to the implants, restoring security and stability. You’ll be able to eat, laugh and even sneeze without worry!

To learn if you are a candidate for a non-removable denture, call our Grosse Pointe, MI dental office for a consultation. If several natural teeth still remain, fixed bridges and/or implants may also be recommended to give you back the smile you had.

What are All-On-X Dental Implants?

Dental implants are one of the latest developments in dentistry that have changed the way people perceive dental restoration. The All-on-X procedure takes dental implants to the next level.

This procedure of dental implant placement consists of replacing the missing or damaged tooth with an implant that is made of either Titanium or ceramic. The missing tooth crown is then replaced with a crown using an abutment, which connects the crown with the screw. The All-on-X dental implants allow patients to replace multiple missing or damaged teeth at the same time.

What Happens During The All-On-X implants Procedure?

Using X-Guide, a dynamic 3D navigation for computer-guided surgery, we determine the best locations for implants to be inserted into the bone.

Next, a temporary denture is usually inserted so that you be able to smile and eat normally while your natural bone heals and grows around the implants, as it would around a natural tooth. This takes a few months, and then a full-arch denture is fitted and permanently secured to your implants.

A dental bridge anchored by 4 implants that can be placed in the top or bottom teeth are used in the All-on-X process, positioning the implants within the jawbone at the same time.

The All-on-X will use just four implants to replace multiple missing teeth. Being made of titanium, the implant can fuse to the bone, becoming a part of the jawbone.

What are the Advantages of All-On-X Dental Implants?

The All-On-X Can Last Much Longer
Titanium implants are designed to last a lifetime and to support zirconia implant crowns, unlike traditional crowns.

Also chosen for its aesthetics, Zirconia is the most durable material used in implant dentistry. Zirconia crowns not only look great but also no one can tell the difference.

Time Effective
A cost-efficient and minimally invasive method All-on-X dental implants restore both the function of the mouth and the confidence that comes with having a beautiful smile.

Moreover, you will be able to leave the office with a temporarily fixed, full-arch denture on the same day of your treatment.

Bone Grafts Are Not Necessary
Because of the use of computer-guided technology during the procedure, Dr. Salim can see where the highest levels of bone are without the need for bone grafting, saving patients money as well as recovery time.

Moreover, skipping this invasive treatment helps in faster healing with much less complication.

Along with restoring the beauty of the smile All-on-X implants help to prevent further bone loss as they act as a scaffold that supports the existing bone giving it something to hold on to.

The cost of the fabrication of the prosthesis is relatively lower and the cost of repair is minimal since they can be achieved with repair resin which is added to the defects or areas of concern.

This means the patient is not left without the prosthesis for any length of time as there is no need to send their denture to the laboratory for repair.

Maintenance of All-on-X Dental Implants
All-on-x does not affect speech or eating abilities. You can eat and drink normally and speak as clearly as with natural teeth after the implants are inserted.

Brushing twice a day and flossing need to be done regularly to maintain the health of the implants.

Keeping a regular professional maintenance schedule with the dentist is also important as it allows the dentist to inspect all the pieces of the All-on-X implant system and regularly evaluate bone levels to make sure everything is in the right shape.



Introducing X-Guide™, a revolutionary system that extends the capabilities of our cone beam system for simplified and more accurate implant procedures. X-Guide boasts dynamic 3D navigation that delivers interactive, turn-by-turn guidance giving Dr. Salim the ability to assess the precision and accuracy of implant POSITION, ANGLE and DEPTH.

Featuring the only live, 360-degree single-view of drill position and anatomy during surgery, X-Guide allows Dr. Salim to confidently transfer your customized 3D treatment plan to you, with ease. X-Guide also makes same-day guided surgery a reality.
