For those missing all or most of their teeth, traditional dentures are often the common treatment route. While aesthetically appealing, dentures don’t provide the stability, eating abilities and permanency of natural teeth or dental implants. With the TeethXpress solution, we can combine the appearance of dentures, or a full arch bridge, with four to six dental implants to restore a full arch of missing teeth. Dental implants are used to support the bridge and act as natural teeth do. As leading providers of TeethXpress in the Chattanooga, TN, area, we can complete a full case in as a little as one surgical appointment.
Dr. Felts Discusses How ‘Teeth in a Day’ Can Give You a Brand New Confident Smile
Implant-supported dentures like TeethXpress are available through the BioHorizons implant system. Problematic teeth are removed, implants are placed, and the secured denture is delivered, all in one day!
The most important qualification for being a candidate for TeethXpress is having proper bone support. When you come into our Chattanooga, TN office, we’ll do an evaluation which may include a cat-scan and intraoral imaging. We use this data to determine if you qualify for implant placement. In some cases, we may have to take certain measures first (such as bone grafting to prepare the foundation for TeethXpress.
Since we’ll be placing anywhere from four to six implants, your procedure can take a few hours to complete. To ensure your comfort, we offer various levels of sedation dentistry to choose from. Both of our periodontists are certified to administer IV sedation. We also have nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) or lighter oral (pill) conscious sedation available. The part of your mouth being treated will be thoroughly numbed, so you won’t experience any pain regardless. Placing implants in the proper location and angle is key for optimum results. Through the use of guided implant surgery, we ensure that your implants are inserted in the exact position needed. Then finally, we fit your denture into place and you’ll be on your way.
Implant-supported dentures are also available as an option to replace missing when a removable denture isn’t required. With this procedure, we insert about six implants and make a denture to fit over them. This fixed option can only be removed by a dentist or specialist.
