We invite you to learn about the process of receiving life-changing full mouth dental implants in Columbus, OH and encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team!
Your consultation is one of the most important steps of your dental implant treatment. It’s during this appointment that we discuss your new smile: your expectations for treatment, smile goals, oral health needs, and if the TeethXpress protocol is right for you. Similarly, we’ll use this appointment to evaluate your mouth and take CBCT scans. Using both aesthetic planning and digital diagnostics, we can personalize a treatment plan that provides the greatest improvements to your smile’s long-term health, beauty, and function. During this phase, we also use our 3Shape Implant Studio software to virtually plan your prosthetically-driven treatment and design the custom surgical guide we’ll print in-house with our own 3D printer. This digital treatment planning not only ensures we’re providing the most efficient and predictable care but that you get the results you truly want and a new smile that will benefit you for years to come.
On the day of your dental implant surgery, our priority is to ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed. With full anesthesia capabilities and an on-site anesthesiologist at our office, you can rest assured that your surgery will be pain-free. Once you’re prepped for surgery, we can begin by extracting any remaining teeth and completing bone grafting, if necessary. Because of our expertise and use of digital technology, we may be able to place your dental implants in precise locations in your bone to avoid grafting altogether. This surgery will be efficient and accurate since we’ll be placing the implants using the custom surgical guide. Following the innovative TeethXpress protocol, our lab technician will attach a custom-made provisional once your dental implants are secured in your jaw. You’ll leave our office with a set of teeth that look and function naturally.
The final phase of your treatment will be completed with your restorative dentist, who we’ve been collaborating with throughout your entire treatment process. When your implants are fully healed and fused to your natural jawbone, you’ll return to your dentist’s office to receive your final set of teeth. This prosthetic is completely personalized, attaching perfectly to the dental implants and fitting comfortably in your mouth. As outlined above, these teeth will look beautiful and natural, restoring your ability to bite and chew foods and live a confident life free from pain and embarrassment!
There’s no doubt that full arch dental implants are one of the best investments you can make in your smile and quality of life. However, we don’t hide the fact that they have a higher initial cost than dentures or other full arch options like implant supported dentures. We never want finances to get in the way of such a transforming solution as TeethXpress full arch dental implants, so we offer many options for helping you afford treatment. In addition to being in-network with major dental insurances, we partner with CareCredit® and Proceed Finance third-party financing companies. Using one or a combination of these options, we can help virtually all our patients afford dental implants and improve their quality of life! We encourage you to meet with us to discuss insurance and financing, then create a personalized payment plan that fits within your budget.
