Tired of slipping, uncomfortable dentures that don't allow you to eat well or smile confidently?
With TeethXpress™, your dentures or failing teeth can be replaced with an implant-secured denture in a single day. At no time will you be required to wear a removable denture.
Conventional dentures are designed to give you the appearance of having natural teeth but not actually replace your natural teeth. You may have noticed that your denture that once fit well now constantly slips and requires costly visits to the dentist for adjustment.
That's because every day you wear a denture, the bone in your jaw shrinks a little more. Eventually, the denture won't fit at all, and you will have to replace it.
You will still have beautiful, attractive-looking teeth, but now they will also function like natural teeth. The TeethXpress™ solution secures your denture to surgically placed dental implants so you can eat, speak, and live confidently without the fear of slipping dentures.
Dentures supported by dental implants have been successful for hundreds of thousands of people.
The number of patients with dental implants is growing rapidly due to their effectiveness, long-term durability, and high success rate.
The TeethXpress™ procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anesthesia. Your dentist will either use your existing denture or have a denture created prior to the procedure so that you walk out that day with teeth.
Discomfort from TeethXpress™ is usually minor and temporary. Your periodontist may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet will be required during the initial healing phase.
After the procedure, using a medicated mouthwash is often recommended for two weeks. You will not brush or use a water pick during that time. After two weeks, you can start using a water pick at a slow speed. Follow the post-operative instructions and maintain your dental hygiene to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.
Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. They are bonded with the bone to provide permanent support for crowns and dentures.
Your jawbone begins to shrink from lack of stimulation. Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged.
TeethXpress™ can be placed in most adults who have lost most or all of their teeth. Please ask your periodontist to explain the benefits and risks to see if TeethXpress™ is right for you.
No, the procedure is typically done under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed at our office.
You may return to work the next day unless otherwise instructed by your clinician. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.
The implants can be placed in as little as 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the location and the number of implants placed. The TeethXpress™ protocol requires 4 to 6 dental implants to be placed to secure your denture. The total procedure will typically require 3 to 4 hours. Your periodontist can give you more exact time estimates at your initial consultation.
TeethXpress™ is designed as an immediate solution so that you walk out the same day with secure natural-looking teeth. Complications may occur that require your dentist to delay securing your denture to the implants, but you will always leave with teeth. Talk to Dr. Khalid about potential complications.
Initially, you will only use a mediated mouth rinse prescribed by your TeethXpress™ dentist. Once your mouth is healed, you will use a water pick to clean around the implants and under the secured denture. You will also schedule regular follow-up visits with your TeethXpress™ dentist for cleanings.
Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.
BioHorizons dental implants have an extremely high average success rate (99.2%).
The dental implants used for TeethXpress™ are low maintenance and provide you with a stable, secure, and confident smile. Therefore, the long-term value of TeethXpress™ far exceeds conventional treatment options.
Insurance policies vary, but most cover a portion of the restorative procedure. Financing options are often available with competitive interest rates, and payments can be tailored to your budget.
