Dental implants are a popular and excellent way to replace missing teeth and maintain the shape and support of your underlying facial structures. For patients who are missing most or all of their teeth, our dentist is pleased to offer fixed implant dentures. This specific type of implant denture is permanently fixed in place, meaning that it cannot be removed by the patient. Because of this, fixed implant dentures feel must more like your natural teeth that removable dentures, and many patients are able to completely restore their ability to speak and chew normally.
Because fixed dental implants cannot be removed, they require additional support than removable dentures, meaning they require more implants than removable implant dentures. In addition, fixed implant dentures often use stronger implant posts, such as those made of zirconia, to ensure that they do not wear down with time and use. Dental implants are designed to replace both the crown and root of a tooth. Because fixed implant dentures require several implants, it is most often recommended to those who have minimal or no bone loss, which is a common side effect of having missing teeth.
Fixed implant dentures go beyond simply looking like a real tooth; they function like real teeth. Patients can feel comfortable that their restoration both works and looks like their real smile. To care for fixed implant dentures, patients can simply continue their regular dental hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing; however, some patients may also need to use a waterpik to keep their dentures clean.
