TeethXpress full arch courses in Providence, RI


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

TeethXpress is a comprehensive full-arch protocol and business program combining advanced dental implant technologies with practice tools to increase patient acceptance for full arch immediate load 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 with a special focus on patient identification, case acceptance and business development strategies. Attendees who become Certified TeethXpress Providers will get added to the exclusive TeethXpress provider network and receive full access to the CaseXpress® armamentarium of practice development tools.

For best results, it is strongly recommended that surgical specialists, referring dental colleagues and a preferred dental laboratory technician attend as a team. Surgeons are expected to have intermediate to advanced experience in dental implant surgery.

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
