What To Expect With The TeethXpress® Solution
After you have met with Dr. Schenkman for your TeethXpress® consultation, you will schedule the TeethXpress® procedure.
During the procedure, 4 to 6 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 typically performed under General 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. Dr. Schenkman 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.
