TeethXpress full-arch courses in Greater Cleveland, OH

TeethXpress Full-Arch, Immediate-Load Course with Live Surgical & Restorative Demonstration

TeethXpress is a comprehensive full-arch, immediate-load, dental implant protocol and business program that leverages practice tools to increase patient acceptance for full-arch therapy.

This comprehensive two-day course – with live surgical and restorative demonstration – will train the team (surgeon, restorative dentist and lab technician) on full-arch conversions. A special focus is given to patient identification, case acceptance and business development strategies.

Attendees who choose to become Certified TeethXpress Providers receive full access to the CaseXpress® armamentarium of practice development tools and have the option to be showcased on the TeethXpress website, which targets the general population of patients in need of implant dentistry.

For best results, it is strongly recommended that surgical specialists, referring dental colleagues and a preferred dental laboratory technician attend as a team. General dentists attending for both full-arch surgical and restorative training are expected to have intermediate to advanced experience in dental implant surgery as well.

About TeethXpress

What to expect from TeethXpress

Observe & Participate

Participants will observe a live surgery with detailed instructions on surgical instrumentation, ridge reduction techniques, implant positioning for adequate A/P spread and primary stability, expert soft tissue management and more.

Restorative dentists and laboratory technicians will hold particular interest in observing a live, full-arch, immediate-load prosthetic conversion with demonstration of restorative instrumentation: Multi-unit abutment torque value requirements, efficient denture modification techniques, smile design, occlusion and more.

Clinical instructors will lead participants in a step-by-step, comprehensive, full-arch surgical and restorative didactic hands-on workshop. A mandible will be used to give each team the opportunity to place implants for predictable immediate-load success, including the achievement of superior soft tissue management techniques and to perform several critical restorative steps that are necessary to administer a successful "chair-side" provisional denture conversion.

Topics & Exercises

  • Live surgery & immediate-load prosthetic observation
  • Comprehensive didactic hands-on surgical and restorative training

Clinical Training

When proven clinical techniques are applied, immediate occlusal loading has a documented success rate of over 95 percent.1 In this course, we will demonstrate:

  • Live implant surgery and the TeethXpress® method of immediate fixed conversion
  • Best practices for applying a team methodology with the surgical specialist, restorative doctor and laboratory
  • Predictable implant placement, including anterior/posterior spread, ridge reduction, torque values, vertical dimension, etc.
  • How to minimize chair time for optimal patient care and efficiency

Marketing Training

While many clinicians are well trained in full-arch reconstruction, the greater challenge is often understanding how to attract and influence ideal candidates for this procedure. In this course, we will demonstrate:

  • How to identify and attract a consistent stream of TeethXpress cases in your practice
  • How to achieve higher case acceptance for full-arch implant dentistry
  • How edentulous, partially-edentulous and fully-dentate immediate-load candidates are motivated differently

Laboratory Training

The TeethXpress treatment planning methodology incorporates the laboratory throughout the process, with special focus on the immediate conversion. Laboratories wishing to become proficient and efficient in full-arch, immediate-load will learn:

  • Effective strategies for treatment planning with the surgical specialist and dentist
  • Laboratory conversion techniques through a hands-on session and observation of a conversion process during a live surgery
  • Systems required for becoming the go-to immediate-load laboratory within your local market
