What are the Benefits of TeethXpress?
Dental implants are a popular modern treatment used to replace missing teeth. Treatment uses small titanium posts, which are surgically placed into your jawbone. Your bone gradually fuses to these posts, turning them into stable roots that provide support for your replacement teeth. Today, there are many types of dental implants to meet many different needs. One of the many implants offered by North Atlanta Family Dentistry, is TeethXpress. This treatment provides you with many incredible benefits.
What is TeethXpress?
TeethXpress is a treatment that uses dental implants to replace your teeth. It is a type of full arch restoration, meaning that it replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. Instead of the typical 6 to 8 implant posts, however, this treatment uses only 4 to 6. TeethXpress is an ideal solution for those who do not have the necessary bone mass to support the implant posts needed with a regular full arch restoration. The posts are designed to maximize contact between the implant and your existing jawbone, which aids in maximizing osseointegration.
Get Your Teeth Right Away
With many types of dental implants, including a typical full arch restoration, it can take several weeks to several months before you get your final teeth. After the implant posts are placed, temporary teeth are affixed to the posts. These temporary teeth remain in place throughout the entire recovery process. Once you have fully healed, then impressions are taken, and your final restorations are created and placed.
With TeethXpress, however, you get your final restorations in the same appointment as your implant surgery. Impressions are taken during your initial consultation, allowing us to create your final restorations before your surgery. When you arrive for surgery, your permanent restorations are ready and waiting for you. They are affixed into place immediately following your procedure.
Get Implants without a Bone Graft
Dental implants rely on a process called osseointegration for success. This is the process during which your jawbone fuses to the posts, stabilizing them within your jaw. If you do not have enough bone mass, though, osseointegration may not be possible. A bone graft can often be used to restore missing bone mass, increasing the success of your implants. This adds additional surgery and additional costs. With TeethXpress, the treatment is designed specifically for those who may not have sufficient bone mass, maximizing contact between the implant posts and your jawbone. This helps to avoid the need for a bone graft while still providing you with a strong, stable restoration.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
TeethXpress provides you with a strong, secure alternative to traditional dentures. The fusion of your jawbone turns the posts into strong, secure roots. Your dental restorations are screwed into place on the posts. Your new teeth are secure and stable. You can eat all of your favorite foods with ease.
Feel More Confident
While dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, they can slip out of place or fall out, which can lead to embarrassing situations. Your dental implants are held securely in place. They will not slip out of place or fall out. You can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Protect the Health of Your Jawbone
The posts of your dental implants function like the roots of your natural teeth. They restore the stimulation to your jawbone, which helps to stop and prevent bone loss in your jawbone. This makes TeethXpress a long-term, even permanent, solution for replacing your missing teeth.
