Too 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. Dentures supported by dental implants have been successful for hundreds of thousands of people. The number of patients is growing rapidly due to their effectiveness, long-term durability and the high success rate of dental implants.
After you have met Dr. Arendt, he will create a personalized treatment plan for you, and you will schedule your TeethXpress procedure. During the procedure, 4 to 6 implants are surgically placed into your jaw with abutment posts. Your denture is then secured to the abutment posts with special prosthetic screws.
The TeethXpress procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anesthesia. Dr. Arendt 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. A soft diet will be required during the initial healing phase.
After the Procedure
After the procedure, the use of a medicated mouth wash 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 on a slow speed. Follow Dr. Arendt’s instructions and maintain your dental hygiene to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.
