When it comes to our options to replace missing teeth, it’s important to know how they work and what they do for us; this includes implants like TeethXpress®. If you’re unfamiliar with what it does and how it works, we’ll explain the process, including how the replacement process works and how the replacement teeth are secured.
Teeth replacement is a terrific option for anyone missing one or more teeth. This option can make it so that you no longer worry about wearing dental devices like bridgework or ill-fitting dentures that make it a pain to eat the foods you love.
How does it work?
Teeth loss affects more than just your smile. Missing teeth can affect your ability to eat the foods you love, be comfortable in your day to day, and your self-esteem as well. That’s why finding a permanent solution to tooth loss that you can be comfortable with all the time is so important.
You’ve probably heard a lot about dental implants, but maybe you’re unsure exactly how they work or what they can do for you. TeethXpress is a new advanced type of dental implant that can help make dental applications obsolete by replacing up to an entire mouth full of teeth. This makes it an ideal option for patients with severe tooth loss or who are uncomfortable with the fit of dentures.
With regular maintenance, these implants are a permanent fix to tooth loss because the implant is made to be durable and strong so that you can eat and smile as you used to without all the hassles of traditional dental solutions.
The dental implant itself consists of several pieces. The main portion that secures the tooth is a titanium post inserted into the jawbone. This threaded post locks the tooth in place and ensures maximum stability even under heavy use. The implant is then capped off with a porcelain crown that is colored to resemble natural teeth and then shaped to match the patient’s natural teeth.
Because of the combination of titanium topped with porcelain, the implant becomes a permanent replacement for a missing tooth.
How the procedure works
Getting implants can feel scary, but even though the procedure is surgical, TeethXpress implants are completely safe and have a 95% success rate. The dentist will begin with a prescreening to determine the overall shape of the patient’s mouth and their oral health. At this time, they will be able to determine if you’re a candidate for implants.
Most patients will be eligible for implants if they have minimal bone available to anchor the implants in place. Once the initial screening is done, the actual procedure is simple while the patient is under anesthesia.
Once the implants are grafted into place, there is minimal recovery time before eating and smiling like they used to.
