  • Slipping or moving of the denture
  • Gum and mouth irritation

Tired of your loose denture?

Millions of people around the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of a denture. Many struggle with loose or poor fitting dentures. If you have this problem, you already know the embarrassment of slipping dentures, not being able to eat the foods you love, and the problems with messy denture adhesives.

The TeethXpress Solution

After you have met with Dr. Oshetski, a board certified implantologist and certified TeethXpress dentist, and created a personalized treatment plan, you will schedule the TeethXpress procedure. During the procedure, 4 to 6 dental implants are surgically placed into your jaw with abutment posts. Your denture is then secured to the abutment posts with special prosthetic screws. The TeethXpress procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anesthesia. Your dentist will either use your existing denture or have a denture created prior to the procedure so that you walk out that day with teeth. Discomfort from TeethXpress is usually minor and temporary. Your dentist may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet will be required during the initial healing phase.



After the Procedure

After the procedure, the use of a medicated mouth wash is often recommended for two weeks. You will not brush or use a water pick during that time. After two weeks, you can start using a water pick on a slow speed. Follow your doctor’s instructions and maintain your dental hygiene to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.

This file can be combined with CBCT imaging and photos to create a virtual patient. It is also used to scan implants for creation of the implant tooth or teeth in cad-cam technology.

FAQs

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are root-sized titanium cylinders that bond with the jawbone to provide permanent support and attachment for replacing individual teeth, a group of teeth or a full arch of teeth. A dental implant may replace a single tooth; however since the implant bond is so strong, many teeth can be attached to just a few implants.
What consider dental implants?
Losing teeth has many effects on a person. Health, nutrition, esthetics, confidence and well-being are all important aspects that are lost when teeth are missing. Before implants, replacement options consisted of using the neighboring teeth or sitting plastic teeth in a denture on the gum. Both are destructive to the remaining teeth and or bone/gum. These traditional treatments are limited and deteriorate in time. With the recent advances in implant dentistry, we are able to rebuild the mouth and replace the chewing function and all those factors lost with loosing natural teeth, a truly life changing experience.
What happens if I lose my teeth and go into a conventional denture or “plate”?

Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged. If traditional dentures are made, the jawbone begins to shrink from constant pressure where the denture is pressing on the gums. The bone diminishes until there is no support and the dentures will not stay in. Also, eating is completely different for patients; they can no longer experience the pleasures of how food feels on their palate. In addition, chewing is less efficient and patients are not able to eat healthy whole foods leading to other medical concerns in time.

Why is the TeethXpress unique?

The TeethXpress protocol utilizes the strength of multiple implants in the bone to replace a full set of missing teeth. These replacement teeth are removable by your dentist but screw in permanently to the implants in your mouth. Patients are instructed how to maintain the gum health and clean under the teeth. The replacement teeth are typically attached to the implants the same day the teeth are extracted and dental implants are placed if the conditions are ideal. TeethXpress can only be provided by trained clinicians licensed in the procedure and Dr. Oshetski is the only licensed Maine provider.

Who is a candidate for TeethXpress?

Anyone who has lost some or all of their teeth in an arch are candidates. More importantly, those about to lose their teeth in an arch and are facing complete dentures are candidates who benefit greatly. After an initial exam and consultation, Dr. Oshetski and his staff can determine if you are a candidate.

Is TeethXpress treatment painful?

When will I receive my new teeth?

TeethXpress is designed as an immediate solution so that it is possible for you walk out the same day with secure natural looking teeth on your implants. Situations may occur that require your dentist to delay securing your new teeth to the implants, but you will always leave with teeth.

How do I care for my new teeth?

Initially you will only use a medicated mouth rinse prescribed by your TeethXpress dentist. Once your mouth is healed, you will use a waterpick to clean around the implants and under the secured teeth. You will also schedule regular follow up visits with your TeethXpress dentist for cleanings.

How much does the TeethXpress procedure cost?

TeethXpress is a sophisticated dental treatment. Replacing the full arch of teeth is similar to other aspects of medicine were we replace a joint or body part that you would find typically in a hospital setting. However, TeethXpress is surprisingly an affordable treatment, customizable and most people are able to afford this life changing treatment.
