nXtsmile® in Grafton, MA
Implant-supported bridges are steadily becoming a more common option for teeth replacement. At Grafton Dental, we offer nXtsmile — the latest advancement in tooth implant procedures. nXtsmile is a zirconia bridge that is held in place by dental implants. This tooth replacement option restores beauty and function to your smile so you can get back to living life confidently.
Benefits of Implant Tooth Replacement
- Fills the gap left behind by missing teeth
- Restores function & appearance of your smile
- Lasts a lifetime with proper care
- Requires no shaping of your surrounding teeth
If you have healthy gums and enough bone to withstand the dental implant placement, you may qualify for a nXtsmile bridge. It’s important to be upfront about your dental habits, as an insufficient oral hygiene routine can impact the longevity of your bridge. During your post-treatment checkup, we’ll ensure that your nXtsmile bridge is holding up and answer any questions you may have about caring for it.
Placement of nXtsmile
nXtsmile first require permanent implants. Tooth implants are small titanium posts that are surgically fused with your jawbone and serve as an artificial tooth root. Once the implants have fused with your jawbone, we will begin the process of measuring you for your custom nXtsmile. After the correct shade, size, and shape of your restorative piece has been solidified, we will attach your nXtsmile bridge to your dental implants.
Cost of nXtsmile
The cost of treatment is dependent upon each patient’s specific dental needs. During your initial consultation, we’ll go over a custom treatment plan and discuss all costs before we move forward. If financing is a concern for you, we offer several financial options to make your care affordable. We accept CareCredit® and provide in-house payment plans, which allows you to split the cost up into manageable payments over time.
Is nXtsmile permanent?
nXtsmile is a permanent solution for patients who need to replace many or all of their teeth. The best way to ensure that your nXtsmile implants last for as long as possible is by visiting the dentist regularly and maintaining a thorough oral care routine at home. For many patients, nXtsmile implants end up lasting them for the rest of their lives.
What foods can I eat with nXtsmile?
There are no food restrictions with nXtsmile, you can even eat things like steak and bite into apples or corn-on-the-cob. As long as you don’t do anything you wouldn’t do with natural teeth, your nXtsmile should be fine.
Is nXtsmile removable?
One of the benefits of utilizing nXtsmile over traditional dentures or even implant-supported dentures is the fact that once your nXtsmile have been installed, they’re not going anywhere. Traditional dentures can prove to be a hassle because they must be removed and cleaned at night, and even when messy denture adhesive is applied to them, they can still slip and move around in your mouth. nXtsmile truly is an alternative to natural teeth, because they will not move and you can brush them just like you would normal teeth.
Is nXtsmile painful?
A local anesthetic will be used before the nXtsmile is installed, making the treatment itself comfortable and painless. However, because your nXtsmile dental implants will have to be surgically placed, you can expect to feel a little soreness or tenderness for a few days following the appointment. You can take prescription or over-the-counter pain medication to relieve some of the discomfort, and we recommend patients try to take it easy for a few days after the procedure to allow the implants to heal as quickly as possible. We also offer oral sedation during the implant surgery to make the procedure as comfortable as possible
Can nXtsmile be covered by insurance?
Yes, nXtsmile is often at least partially covered by insurance. While they will improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile, dental implant placements are restorative treatments, so most insurances will cover some of the costs. If you have any questions about financing the cost of your nXtsmile dental implants, please get in touch with our friendly front office team.
Does nXtsmile have a warranty?
nXtsmile and nXtsmile Ultra both come with a five-year warranty. nXtsmile Ultra is the same as nXtsmile in strength and function, but it has a layer of porcelain on the outside to make them appear very natural-looking.Learn More
