Tooth Loss is Incredibly Common
For millions of people around the world losing their teeth can be incredibly traumatic. Still, most people do not realize how important teeth actually are. When you lose your teeth, you begin to realize that you use them for more than just eating. Aside from the basic function of chewing, your teeth are also used in other important functions like a proper pronunciation of words and the ability to smile brightly for photographs. After tooth loss these functions become incredibly hard and people start to look for solutions. This is where TeethXpress® comes in.
What is TeethXpress®?
As your body ages, your teeth age as well. It can feel discouraging and even scary to discover loose teeth in adulthood. That’s why we offer an innovative solution—TeethXpress. This is a procedure that provides the protection of durable dentures and implants.
Better than Dentures
The concept of tooth replacement hasn't evolved much since it first began. Even today, we are still using messy adhesives to bind dentures in the mouth when they become loose. This is to prevent them from falling out at the most inopportune moments. The reality, however, is that patients may not want to struggle with loose or ill-fitting dentures. Luckily there is a solution with the advent of dental implants. Now, replacing teeth has become more of a science. The exciting news is that with TeethXpress®, we are taking dental implants to a whole new level.
How Does the Procedure Work?
Modern science has come a long way, and dentistry is no exception. We proudly offer an efficient and effective solution for tooth loss that restores the confidence of our patients. TeethXpress works the same way as dentures or implants. Using local anesthesia, we surgically place implants with titanium posts that attach to your jaw. The procedure can be completed in one visit to our office, and you can leave the same day.
Why Try TeethXpress®?
The TeethXpress procedure is best for those experiencing tooth loss or poor-fitting dentures. Dentures can shift, causing discomfort. Whether you have tooth loss from decay, an accident, or age, we can determine if TeethXpress is right for you. Call us today to schedule an appointment, and we can provide you with a consultation to assess if the procedure can benefit your oral needs.
What You Should Know
If you have lost your teeth and are looking for a secure solution to replace them, you should know that TeethExpress® is the most modern and scientifically advanced way to do so. This solution can give you back the functionality of your teeth, in addition to the appearance of them. This can be helpful if you –
- Have a hard time chewing some of your food
- Are tired of wearing loose fitting dentures
- Want to look like you have a full set of healthy teeth and
- Need a solution that is more affordable than traditional dental implants
Many of our patients also want to know how long it takes to recover after the procedure. At RSN Dental PC, we believe that one of the amazing things about this solution is that it can typically be placed in a single day and done under local anesthesia. This means that you will not have a long recovery time, nor will you have to wait for hours at our dentist office while your teeth get better. There is going to be some discomfort from the TeethExpress® procedure but it is usually minor and temporary. We may prescribe some painkillers but most of the time the discomfort can be managed with ibuprofen and an icepack. We also recommend that you eat a soft diet during the initial healing phase which often lasts about 2 weeks.
