TeethXpress - Teeth in a Day in Cincinnati
When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, the teeth in a day procedure is the best permanent solution.
Before dental implants, there were no fixed solutions available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution. Moreover, with the TeethXpress system, your new smile can be provided in a single dental appointment.
COURSE OF TREATMENT
INSTALLING TEETH IN A DAY– STEP-BY-STEP
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your periodontist to find out what the best solution is for you.

|1: Before the procedure|
The periodontist examines the toothless arch's current health for the coming treatment procedure. If there are any remaining yet failing teeth in the arch, they are extracted.
|2: Installing the implants|
The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots.

|3: Attaching the bridge|
The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. In traditional dental implant cases, it normally takes 2-3 visits to reach this step. However, TeethXpress lets us affix your new smile during the same visit as your implants are placed.
|4: The result|
Your new teeth should be hard to tell from a natural smile – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before TeethXpress often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.
ALTERNATIVES TO A FIXED BRIDGE
Removable, implant anchored overdenture
An alternative to a fixed bridge is a removable overdenture, which is anchored on implants. Though effective and secure, this approach does require multiple visits before you can receive your new smile.
| ||Removable full denture without implants|
A traditional denture is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth. This alternative has no real advantages except for its low price and nonsurgical installation.
However, the disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor esthetics, affected speech, sore gums from denture movement, and a frequent need for relining, repair, or replacement. Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste. If you can undergo dental implant placement, TeethXpress is a much more effective solution.
