Without your natural teeth, the bone in your jaw will slowly change over time. Your denture may not fit the same as the day you received it. Without natural teeth the bone in your jaw will start to resorb causing your denture to no longer fit comfortably. Dental implants can be used to stabilize your loose or poorly fitting denture and greatly reduce the pain often associated with a loose denture.

TeethXpress uses dental implants to provide a solid foundation for your loose or poorly fitting denture. Once dental implants have been placed, your denture will be securely attached to the implants and will not move or shift providing stability and comfort. Contact Dr. Sherry at The Specialty Center for Periodontics & Dental implants today to find out if TeethXpress is right for you.
