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.
Participants will observe a live surgery with instruction on bone reduction techniques and implant placement, followed by an immediate load conversion of a full-arch provisional prosthesis.
A surgical and restorative hands-on model based workshop will give each team the opportunity to place implants and perform a "chair-side" provisional denture conversion.

"After attending the TeethXpress course with a group of my referrals, they are pumped about full arch. One has already sent me a consult she saw on Monday after the course. Another said that she has new excitement and passion for dentistry as a result of the course."
"The TeethXpress full arch immediate load course is unquestionably the most well organized, well presented and “immediately” useful course I have ever taken. The live surgical/restorative demonstration together with the totally realistic hands-on implant placement and immediate load prosthetic conversion were the best confidence builders ever! Thank you for providing a seamless solution for myself, my team and most importantly, our patients."

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:
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:
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:
