How Long Do TeethXpress Last?


Diagram of teethxpress full arch dental implant restoration Tooth loss is a serious issue. Replacing missing teeth is essential for restoring your smile, the functions of your mouth, and your quality of life. Many adults will suffer some form of tooth loss in their lifetime, with a percentage losing an entire arch. Traditionally, a full arch of missing teeth has been restored using dentures. Dentures can restore many functions of your missing teeth, but they cannot stop bone loss in your jaw. TeethXpress provides a more modern, longer lasting, alternative. However, just how long does this treatment last?

What is TeethXpress?


TeethXpress is a treatment used to replace an entire arch of teeth. This particular treatment involves the use of dental implants to support your replacement teeth. We place 4 to 6 titanium posts in your jaw during a surgical procedure. As you heal, your bone fuses to these posts, stabilizing them within the jaw. This process, called osseointegration, turns the posts into strong roots that hold your new teeth securely in place.

TeethXpress is a dental implant option for those who have lost too much bone mass in their jaw to support the implants required for a typical full arch restoration. A machined collar aids in providing greater bone to implant contact, which optimizes osseointegration and helps you to avoid the need for a bone graft.

Benefits of TeethXpress


There are many benefits associated with TeethXpress. Many of these benefits are similar to other types of dental implants, including a completely natural appearance, a natural feel and function, and stopping and preventing bone loss in your jaw. Other benefits specific to this solution include:
•  Less surgery.
•  A shorter recovery.
•  Fewer office visits.
•  You get your teeth in one appointment.
•  There is no need for a bone graft.

How Long Do TeethXpress Last?


Dental implants, including TeethXpress, are designed to be a long-term, or even permanent, solution to tooth loss. This is because the posts that are implanted into your jawbone function just like the roots of your missing teeth. The posts restore stimulation to the bone. This triggers the body to send essential nutrients to your jaw and surrounding areas. By restoring stimulation to your jawbone, the implant posts help to stop and prevent bone loss in your jaw, keeping it strong and healthy.

While TeethXpress is a long-term solution, there are still several factors that can impact their longevity. These factors include:
•  Oral hygiene. Even though your replacement teeth cannot decay or get cavities, they can still collect plaque and bacteria. These substances can lead to gum disease. As gum disease progresses, bacteria can travel below the gums and weaken your bone, which can then cause your implants to become unstable. Brushing and flossing, in addition to routine dental visits, are essential for optimal oral health.
•  Facial trauma. Facial trauma can affect your jawbone, which can affect the stability of the implant posts. When you suffer facial trauma, it is essential that you get dental treatment right away.
•  Bruxism. Bruxism can wear away at your jawbone. Treating bruxism, such as wearing a nightguard while you sleep, can help to prevent grinding and clenching.
•  Osteoporosis. This issue decreases bone mass and causes the bone to become weak. It can even affect your jawbone, which can affect the stability of your implants.
•  Oral habits. Biting on hard objects, such as fingernails, ice, and other hard objects, can affect the longevity of your replacement teeth, causing cracks and chips.

TeethXpress is made to be a long-term solution to tooth loss. To ensure longevity, however, taking care of your new teeth is essential. For more information and to find out if TeethXpress is right for you, call North Atlanta Family Dentistry today at (470) 387-0500.
