Using Teeth Xpress for a better denture experience
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
At Implant and Restorative Dentistry, Dr. James A. Oshetski of Brunswick, ME provides a number of solutions for patients who are faced with tooth loss. While dentures can be a wonderful way of addressing the loss of all the teeth within the dental arch, many patients have problems with keeping them in place. Common issues with conventional dentures include:
- Infections of the mouth
- Slurred speech
- Whistling, smacking, or clicking caused by poorly fitted dentures
- Inability to enjoy certain foods due to difficulty chewing
- Irritation of the soft tissues in the mouth
- Pain and discomfort from rubbing dentures
- Slipping and loss of dentures in place
If you are a patient with traditional full dentures who is unhappy with the fit and function of your current restoration, we encourage you to take the time to ask our team about Teeth Xpress.
What is Teeth Xpress?
Teeth Xpress is a revolutionary method of retaining dentures. Also known as an “implant-supported denture,” Teeth Xpress allows patients to have several dental implants placed along the gum line to secure their denture in place. This is the best solution for loos dentures that are not working well with natural suction or dental adhesives. This method also helps in maintaining the bone of the jaw, which will allow the smile to last even longer! The entire procedure is done in just one day, during which dental implants are placed during oral surgery along the arch and made to fit the new denture. This provides optimum stability and structure for proper functionality—and improved self-confidence in our patients! Dr. James A. Oshetski welcomes patients to determine if they are proper candidates for denture retention in this manner.
