At the dental office of periodontist Dr. Raymond A. Kenzik, we offer a fast, we’re an exclusive provider for an affordable solution called "Teeth Express." Teeth Express can eliminate gaps in your smile or replace your present dentures with cutting-edge implant-supported dentures (or bridges). Often, the procedure can be completed in a single dental appointment.
Advantages of Teeth Express Dentures
Today, dental implants are the most successful method of addressing tooth loss, and implant-supported dentures are the most effective way to quickly replace large numbers of missing teeth.
Some of the distinct advantages of Teeth Express dentures stem from the basic benefits of dental implants, some from the superiority of implant-supported dentures over ordinary dentures, and some from the unique facets of our express implant procedure.
Here are some of the most important advantages of Teeth Express dentures:
- The titanium implant roots fuse to the underlying jaw bone, creating a strong bond. This makes the dentures, attached to several strategically positioned implants, exceptionally stable.
- The pressure on your jawbone exerted through the implants helps keep your jawbone from "resorbing" into your body. Traditional dentures, by contrast, can actually wear down your alveolar ridge bone.
- Comfort is vastly increased with implant-supported dentures because they avoid the frequent "sore spots" caused by dentures rubbing against your gums.
- Unlike traditional dentures, dentures with implant supports do not need to be replaced every several years but can last for decades. Often, they last for the rest of the patient's life.
- You will experience a firmer, more natural bite that will help you chew foods better and avoid digestive problems that stem from the poor chewing of dentures.
- No messy adhesive is needed to keep the dentures in place, and you won't have to remove your dentures to clean them or while sleeping.
- Your oral hygiene will likely improve since traditional dentures/bridges tend to trap and hide food particles, damaging remaining natural teeth and underlying periodontal tissue.
- The slurring of speech that sometimes occurs with ordinary dentures will be a thing of the past.
- With Teeth Express, you can often get your new implant-supported dentures installed in only one or two visits.
- A wide range of dental insurance policies will cover dental implants for dentures.
Find Out If Teeth Express Is Right For You
There are certain situations, such as when the underlying bone is too thin or weak to support dental implants, where it would take more time to install implant-supported dentures. Even in these cases, however, bone grafts can correct the problem.
