About Implant Dentistry in Waterbury - TeethXpress
Today’s options for people who are missing teeth are often more comfortable, better-functioning, and healthier for the gums and supporting bone structures. Instead of struggling with poor-fitting removable dentures that slip and slide, causing embarrassing moments for their users, dental implants offer a permanent, aesthetically pleasing alternative.
The TeethXpress of Western Connecticut team is proud to present their patients, new and existing, with the option to choose “Immediate Smiles” through the use of the TeethXpress immediate-load solution – the implant and your new teeth are supplied same-day. TeethXpress are not dentures, but are dental implants that are bonded with the bone to provide permanent support.
Our initial exam involves the use of our state-of-the-art equipment – x-rays and CT scans of the patient’s mouth – in order to establish a patient’s candidacy for TeethXpress. A good candidate for the procedure is typically an adult who has lost all or most of his or her teeth.
The total procedure typically requires 3 to 4 hours and is done under local anesthesia. Patients can return to work the next day (unless otherwise instructed) and may be prescribed medication for any discomfort. Implants are long-lasting and, if properly cared for, will be with you for decades. Your insurance may cover a portion of the restorative procedure and surgical extractions. Please contact our office for more information regarding financing for and care of your TeethXpress dental implants.
Alternately, if the patient’s mouth provides a poor foundation for this innovative treatment, our team will take the time to discuss alternatives to the TeethXpress procedure. Together, we can formulate another course of action that is suitable.
If you are searching for the kind of permanent and beautiful solution that the TeethXpress process can deliver, please contact TeethXpress of Western Connecticut for a consultation. Financing is available.
