Read our guide below to learn about TeethXpress and why Dr. Latif is considered one of the top providers for patients who reside in Knolls West, Governours Square, and Sycamore Hills, OH!
What Are TeethXpress Dental Implants?
TeethXpress is a system using multiple dental implants to secure a set of custom-made prosthetic teeth. Unlike All-On-4®, which uses four titanium posts, TeethXpress requires five to six of them to be attached to your jawbone. What makes this treatment so popular is it skips the normal recovery period required after having an implant placed, which can take up to six months.
The Benefits of TeethXpress®
TeethXpress comes with the normal benefit of dental implants along with the convenience of having a complete smile in one appointment. Other advantages include:
- Added durability due to multiple implants
- Prevention of facial wrinkles and premature aging
- Stimulation to promote jawbone growth and strength
- 99.2 percent success rate with dental implants
The TeethXpress® Dental Implant Process
Our implant dentist, Dr. Latif will first evaluate your oral health to see if you qualify for the TeethXpress procedure. You’ll return to our Columbus, OH office if he’s deemed a candidate to begin inserting your BioHorizons implants into your jawbone. A local anesthetic will be applied beforehand to ensure you feel comfortable during the procedure. Once your implants are in place, Dr. Latif will finish your procedure by ensuring it fits securely in your mouth.
Our team will provide you with aftercare instructions such as sticking to a diet of soft foods and using a medicated mouthwash for the first two weeks. We can also prescribe you pain medication to help with managing any temporary discomfort.
Candidacy for TeethXpress® Implants
Dr. Latif is a Certified TeethXpress® Provider and will figure out if you qualify for this type of procedure. He’ll evaluate your current oral health and look over your medical history to better map out your treatment. If you’re an adult who’s missing a majority of their natural teeth, chances are you may qualify for this revolutionary procedure. The best way to know is to schedule an appointment with our implant dentist by calling (614) 459-7300.
Frequently Asked Questions
The TeethXpress procedure typically takes three to four hours depending on your dental case. Your dentist will be able to give you a more accurate timeline of your treatment during your initial appointment. This will also be the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the procedure itself or raise any concerns that you want to have addressed.
TeethXpress is an ideal option compared to traditional dental implants for patients who are missing a majority of their natural teeth. By using custom-made prosthetic teeth, your dentist will be able to replace even an entire arch of missing teeth to instantly restore your smile and renew your confidence. If you’re only missing one or two teeth, then perhaps dental implants may be the better option for your oral health needs.
TeethXpress offers patients a customized set of attractive dental implants in just one appointment. While traditional crowns and bridges are also used to replace missing teeth, the process itself is oftentimes more expensive and time-consuming. Traditional dentures can accelerate bone loss in your jaw since they don’t use dental implants. TeethXpress is not only affordable but a worthwhile long-term investment for your smile.
Most dental insurance providers will either partially or fully cover a portion of TeethXpress procedures. Financing is usually available with competitive interest rates and payments tailored to your budget. Since coverage varies from patient to patient, it’s recommended you check with your provider about their specific coverage options for dental implants.
