Permanent Denture Implants
A Modern Solution for Your Missing Teeth
For those with significant tooth loss or decay or for people who struggle with the fit and feel of conventional dentures due to bone loss in the jaw, permanent dentures or fixed dentures could be just the thing you’re looking for. This involves placing an implant in the jaw that’s anchored in place by the bone. The implants are made from titanium, and they fuse to the living bone. This happens through a process known as osseointegration. It comes from the Latin word osseus meaning “bony” and integrare meaning “to make whole.” Eventually, your dentures will be fixed in place with the help of these implants.
Have you lost an entire arch of teeth? Or are you soon to have your remaining teeth removed because they are too unhealthy to save? Then you may be able to replace them with fixed dentures supported by dental implants!
There are many benefits of opting for permanent dentures supported by dental implants, including:
- They look, feel, and function like natural teeth
- They stay in place when you eat or talk
- They can help prevent loss of bone in the jaw
The cost of your permanent dentures will depend on how many implants are needed, which surgical procedures are involved, and the type of restoration used on the implants.
