The TeethXpress® solution is designed for patients who have limited amount of bone and/or a limited budget. TeethXpress is an alternative dental implant solution that maximizes the use of available bone for immediate use using just four implants! The TeethXpress technique has a 98.5% success rate at the four-year follow-up and has been provided to patients for over ten years.
Patients missing all their teeth are typically forced to wear traditional, unsecured dentures which in many cases have limited success. Traditional dentures can be painful, inconvenient, and unstable, making simple tasks like eating or speaking difficult or unfomfortable. The TeethXpress treatment option is a solution to these problems.
The innovative TeethXpress technique from BioHorizons® is specifically designed to use only four implants that are available for immediate function. Due to their unique design, TeethXpress implants do not typically require bone grafting, so they are an ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume.
Before the procedure begins, you will be comfortably numbed so that you will feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Four dental implants are then placed according to where the bone volume is best. Once the implants have been placed, the new or existing denture is used as the framework for a temporary set of teeth that will be attached that day.
Once the bone has fully integrated with the implant (3-4 months), the temporary teeth are removed and the new, final set of teeth are made and anchored into place permanently.
