There’s nothing like your natural teeth. Keep them for as long as you can. But sometimes there is simply no viable alternative to having teeth out. The psychological and physical trauma involved in the transition to removable dentures can be severe. A new implant technique can make things a lot easier. Imagine having teeth out and having fixed teeth placed and anchored to dental implants all on the same day. You are never without teeth! What used to be a long and drawn out process has now, with the latest technology, become affordable and routine.
TeethXpress is a type of dental implant procedure that helps to resolve an important issue that most dental wearers will eventually suffer. With traditional dentures, an individual's jaw bone continues to shrink and their once well-fitting dentures begin to slip and slide in their mouth. The shape of the face changes and ages. With TeethXpress, your dentures are permanently secured to your mouth with dental implants. The palate is not covered, nothing is loose, and the jawbone structure is preserved.
With TeethXpress dental implants, patients are usually able to eat the healthy foods they like, such as salad and raw vegetables, and they do not incur pain from poor fitting dentures. There is no gum or mouth irritation and no need for messy denture adhesives. You can be social and go to restaurants and meet new friends without worrying about embarrassing denture problems. Most importantly, the dental implants help to prevent the jawbone from melting away so patients are able to retain their normal-sized jawbone and facial structure.
