Secure, natural looking teeth in as little as one day
Is TeethXpress right for you?
If you are missing one or more teeth due to decay, injury or disease, you may be a candidate for TeethXpress.
Restore your confidence Many people who have conventional dentures don’t like to wear them because they don't stay in place. TeethXpress offers a way to keep dentures secure and allows you to go about your daily life with confidence.
Conventional dentures are designed to give you the appearance of natural teeth, but not actually replace your natural teeth. You may have noticed that your denture that once fit well now slips constantly and requires costly visits to the dentist for adjustment. That's because every day that you were 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.
TeethXpress is a very different solution. You will still have beautiful natural looking teeth, but now they will also function like natural teeth. The TeethXpress solution secures your denture to surgically placed dental implants so that you can eat, speak and live confidently without the fear of slipping dentures.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. They are bonded with the bone to provide permanent support for crowns and dentures.
What happens when wearing a conventional denture?
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.
Who is a candidate?
TeethXpress can be placed in most adults who have lost most or all of their teeth. Ask Dr. Senft to explain the benefits and risks to see if TeethXpress is right for you.
Is TeethXpress treatment painful?
No, the procedure is typically done under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in your clinician’s office.
How soon may I return to work after treatment?
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.
How long sill the TeethXpress procedure take?
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 be placed to secure your denture. The total procedure will typically require 3 to 4 hours. Dr. Senft will be able to give you more complete time estimations after your initial visit.
When will I receive my new teeth?
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.
How do I care for my new teeth?
Initially you will only use a mediated mouth rinse prescribed by your TeethXpress dentist. Once your mouth is healed, you will use a waterpick to clean around the implants and under the secured denture. You will also schedule regular follow up visits with your TeethXpress dentist for cleanings.
How long will dental implants last?
Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.
What is the success rate of TeethXpress and dental implants?
BioHorizons dental implants have an extremely high average success rate (99.2%).
How does the long-term value of TeethXpress compare to other treatment options?
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.
Is TeethXpress covered by insurance?
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.
