Teeth Xpress Belleville IL
Teeth Xpress implants create secure, natural looking teeth that remain stable in your mouth with no need for removal. They do not require use of costly adhesives and they are low maintenance. These implants preserve your jawbone, reducing the appearance of premature aging. They restore your proper chewing ability up to 100%, allowing a better diet and improved health. This procedure is minimally invasive and can generally be completed in one day. It is truly a long-lasting solution.

What To Expect
During the procedure, 4 to 6 implants are placed into the jaw with abutment posts. Your denture is then attached to the abutments. The TeethXpress procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anesthesia. Discomfort from TeethXpress is usually minor and temporary. Your dentist may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet may be required during the initial healing phase.
Securing the Denture

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.
