Implant Learning Center
When it comes down to what to expect with dental implants, the process starts with seeing our Bridgeville, PA dentists for a consultation and exam. During your visit we’ll discuss your needs, concerns, and create an individualized care plan that outlines the overall process. This will include if additional services are necessary and the total number of appointments involved. Because quite a bit of planning is required, this appointment can be quite comprehensive.
- Consultation and treatment planning
- Digital scans and diagnostic images
- Additional treatments, such as extractions or bone grafting
- Placement of your implants
- Restoration design and delivery
Ultimately, what to expect with dental implants will depend a great deal on if you’re in need of additional supportive therapies, such as bone grafting, tooth extractions, or gum disease therapy. While some of these procedures can be performed at the same time as your implant placement, others may require a bit of time before your dental implants can be installed.
In regard to your comfort and how “easy” your procedure is, what to expect with dental implants is simpler than you may have assumed. Our licensed IV sedation dentists make it possible to complete your implant treatment (as well as additional services) in one convenient visit. You’ll feel like you’re napping or dozing off as we do everything necessary to ensure you’re on your way to a healthier smile. When we install your implants, we’ll also make sure you have a prosthesis to wear as you heal, until you’re ready for a permanent crown, bridge, or denture. In some cases, your permanent restoration can be placed on the very same day. We’ll present your options in advance, so that you’ll know exactly what to expect with dental implants in our office.

What is TeethXpress?
TeethXpress is a long-term, secure treatment option for our patients missing a full-arch of teeth. When you need to replace all of your upper or lower teeth at one time, full-arch dental implants are a practical and long-lasting alternative to more conventional types of treatment. Our Bridgeville, PA practice uses 3D CBCT scanning and guided implant technology to digitally map out the exact placement of each implant, creating a surgical guide that allows for minimally invasive treatment. CBCT technology means a faster procedure and easier recovery for our TeethXpress – as well as traditional dental implant – patients. And thanks to our comfortable sedation dentistry options, you can relax throughout the entire visit! Even if you require bone grafting to enhance the quality of the bone supporting your new dental implants, we can perform the procedure under sedation. There’s no need for you to be aware of anything! As soon as you’re awake, you’ll be able to look in the mirror and see your new smile shining back at you. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Why Consider TeethXpress?
When to Consider Full-Arch Dental Implants
What makes TeethXpress so unique, is that it uses as few as four strategically placed implants to support an entire, full-arch prosthesis. Because implants are extremely strong and can support the weight of multiple teeth, TeethXpress’ full-arch dental implants system provides a better alternative to our patients who would otherwise wear a traditional denture. Unlike removable prosthetics, this missing teeth treatment provides added comfort and stability, for the confidence you need to enjoy all of your favorite foods and smile freely in front of your friends. Our IV sedation patients have their TeethXpress system completed in just one appointment, providing them with the highest level of relaxation possible. We’ve been a licensed sedation provider for over 15 years!
