Millions of people throughout the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of dentures. However, many people that wear traditional dentures struggle with them as they won’t stay in place, making it difficult to eat certain foods, and even making speaking difficult at times. The good news is, there is a solution.
Dentures can be supported by implants that hold them in place, allowing them to perform and feel more like natural teeth. Due to the many benefits of dental implants and their long term effectiveness, the number of patients choosing dental implants is growing at an increasingly fast pace.
Whilst dental implants for patients missing a number of teeth used to require several visits to the dentist, revolutionary dental treatments like TeethXpress allow dentures to be secured in a single session. Under local anesthesia and sedation, 4 to 6 implants can be placed into the jaw, and dentures can be attached to abutment posts on the same day.
Why choose TeethXpress?
There are a long list of reasons to choose TeethXpress if you are missing a number of teeth, or have problems with your dentures:
- Whilst dentures can make eating your favourite foods difficult, TeethXpress allows you to eat the foods that you love, improve your diet and have a positive effect on your overall health.
- There’s no need to buy expensive adhesives for dentures.
- As TeethXpress prevent dentures from slipping, there’s no need to worry about having difficulty speaking. As dentures are secured in place, any gum irritation is considerably reduced.
- The TeethXpress procedure can usually be carried out in just a single visit. Any discomfort following treatment is usually transient .Pain relievers may be prescribed by your dentist and in some cases, a soft diet may be advised during the initial healing of your implants.
- TeethXpress can use your existing denture.
- Missing teeth can lead to bone loss from the jaw, resulting in changes to your facial features. Your cheeks can appear sunken, which can lead you to appear prematurely aged. Dental implants help to stimulate the jaw and prevent bone loss, leaving your jaw in a much healthier state and helping to maintain your appearance.
