Many patients are hesitant to wear permanent dentures because they are loose, ill-fitting, or uncomfortable. Conventional dentures provide the look of natural teeth, but do not restore the bite force of your original smile. They need to be readjusted periodically to retain their secure fit. This is because, without the presence of tooth roots to act as natural anchors, the jawbone begins to shrink. Eventually, your dentures will no longer fit and will need replacing.
Did you know Mid-Valley Dental Care offers a much more lasting and effective solution to tooth loss?
TeethXpress is permanent, full-arch dental implants. When you receive a TeethXpress procedure, our dentists will place 4 or 6 dental implants into your jaw. These implants will then be used to secure a denture, restoring the appearance and function of your smile. The TeethXpress procedure can typically be completed in a single day, using local anesthesia.
TeethXpress can solve your most common and frustrating denture problems, including:
• Slippery dental appliances
• Difficulty biting into and chewing certain food
• Slurred speech
• Embarrassing smacking or clicking noises when you speak
• Gum irritation and sores
• Discomfort caused by ill-fitted dentures
For your implant-supported dentures, our dentists will either use your existing denture, or will create a denture prior to your procedure. This allows you to walk out of our office with a new smile.
Discomfort and pain from TeethXpress is usually minor, though you may use mild pain relievers if needed. We recommend that you follow a soft diet during the initial healing phase.
