What is TeethXpress?
TeethXpress is a state-of-the-art procedure that allows a patient to receive an implant denture in a single visit to our periodontal office. Unlike a traditional denture that sits on top of the gums, TeethXpress dentures are anchored to the jawbone using just 4-6 implants. This gives them incredible strength and longevity. While a traditional denture can be expected to last for about 7-10 years on average, dental implants have an impressive 30+ year lifespan.
How Does TeethXpress Work?
The entire TeethXpress procedure is completed over the course of three to four hours. To ensure that a patient remains comfortable the entire time, our periodontal office is happy to offer sedation. If necessary, any remaining or failing teeth will be extracted by Dr. Cordini, and then he will surgically place the implants into the jaw. Thanks to local anesthetic and his expert touch, most patients describe feeling a little pressure during this process, but nothing that resembles pain.
Once the implants are seated, a brand-new denture is attached on top, some minor adjustments are made to ensure the perfect fit, and then the patient can walk out with a completely renewed smile.
Who is a Good Candidate for TeethXpress?
TeethXpress is primarily recommended to patients who are missing most or all of their teeth along a single arch who also have a jawbone that is strong enough to support implants. If a patient has experienced bone loss or is currently dealing with periodontal disease, Dr. Cordini will address these problems first before completing the TeethXpress procedure.
It is also a viable option for patients who currently wear a denture that slips and slides around, as TeethXpress dentures stay rock-solid thanks to the support provided by the implants.
