Dental implants are a replacement root with a crown placed on top. Implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are also used to hold dentures in place.

The amount of implants you need will depend on your specific needs. In most cases two to four implants are required for the lower dentures and four to eight are implanted in the upper denture. Your implant dentist will be able to tell you the amount you will need at your consultation.

Most adults can get dental implants. Our TeethXpress implant procedure is performed on adults who have lost some or all their teeth.

At Auckland Central our Implant dentists use TeethXpress which is a procedure that uses four dental implants to anchor down a full set of new teeth. These are usually provided on the same day of dental implant surgery and are used to transform or restore your smile.

TeethXpress securely holds the denture in place while smiling, talking and eating. TeethXpress are like natural teeth and stimulate the jaw while preventing bone loss. BioHorizons dental implants used exclusively for TeethXpress have a 99.2% success rate.

The Teeth-Xpress procedure isn't completely painless however your pain  will be well controlled by your dentist. You will likely be sedated during the procedure or given local anaesthetic. At the consultation your dentist or specialist will talk you through the procedure and any concerns you might have. You may experience minor discomfort for a few days following the procedure. A soft diet may be required while healing.

The length of time that your dental implants will last depends on how well you look after your oral health. With good care they can last over 20 years. The metal framework part of your implant has a lifetime guarantee as it is unlikely to break or be damaged. 

Often we can modify your existing dentures to work with your new implants. That decision is based on the condition of your old dentures as well as your bone and gums.

Dentures and TeethXpress implants provide different benefits for patients. TeethXpress implants help solve many of the common complaints of having dentures as they fit firmly and they don't impact your speech or ability to eat. Patients will usually leave with a restored smile on the same day of surgery.

All surgical procedures have associated risks. You could develop an infection post-surgery which might delay healing. Another risk associated with this procedure is nerve damage. Your dentist or clinical technician will advise you of the degree of risk for you. In very rare instances, your body can reject the implant.

To take the best care of your implants and dentists you should keep up a good oral health routine. You should also visit your dentist every six to 12 months for a check-up and a clean, just as you would with natural teeth. Your dentist will check the condition of your implants and fitting of the denture.
