If you’ve worn dentures for a while, then you know they don’t fit the same as the day you received them. They may slip more often and you may need costly adjustments more frequently, too. That’s because dentures are only designed to look like teeth; they cannot stimulate bone regeneration the way a natural tooth and its root do. Consequently, your jawbone begins to shrink and those dentures that once fit snuggly are now slipping. Fortunately, there is a permanent solution. With TeethXpress™, Dr. Bruce E. Carter in Lawrenceville, GA, can give you a smile with dentures that are beautiful and secure.
Aside from slipping, ordinary dentures can cause other problems, too, including:
- Difficulty chewing some of your favorite foods, especially those that are sticky or hard
- Speech that is slurred or otherwise difficult to understand
- Dentures that make a clicking noise
- Mouth and gum irritation
- Mouth infections
- Painful gums or palate
TeethXpress can eliminate all of these denture woes. Dr. Carter surgically places dental implants and abutments at strategic points along your upper or lower arch. Usually, four to six implants are placed, so you can be sure your dentures will be firmly held in place. Immediately after placing the dental implants, your dentures are attached to the abutment posts with prosthetic screws.
TeethXpress in a Day
The entire TeethXpress procedure can usually be completed in one day—that’s includes dental implant surgery and securing your dentures. Local anesthesia will keep you comfortable throughout the process. Once your implants are in place, Dr. Carter will either attach your existing denture or new dentures that were fabricated before the procedure. Either way, you will leave our office with a smile that is secure, comfortable and attractive.
