Tired of Your Loose Denture?
Millions of people around the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of a denture. Many struggle with loose or poor fitting dentures. If you have this problem, you already know the embarrassment of slipping dentures, not being able to eat the foods you love, and the problems with messy denture adhesives.
After you have met with a Certified TeethXpress Dentist near you and created a personalized treatment plan, you will schedule the TeethXpress procedure. During the procedure, 4 to 6 implants are surgically placed into your jaw with abutment posts. Your denture is then secured to the abutment posts with special prosthetic screws.
TeethXpress procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anesthesia. Your dentist will either use your existing denture or have a denture created prior to the procedure so that you walk out that day with teeth. Discomfort from TeethXpress is usually minor and temporary. Your dentist may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet will be required during the initial healing phase.

After the Procedure
After the procedure, the use of a medicated mouth wash is often recommended for two weeks. You will not brush or use a water pick during that time. After two weeks, you can start using a water pick on a slow speed. Follow your doctor's instructions and maintain your dental hygiene to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.
Are You a Candidate?
Every patient is different and patient results may vary. Only a trained clinician can choose the best treatment plan for you. Please ask your Certified TeethXpress Dentist to explain the benefits and risks to determine if the TeethXpress solution is right for you.
