Permanent Denture Implants
The Modern Solution for All Missing Teeth
Permanent dentures or fixed dentures can be a great solution for some patients, in particular those patients 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. With this option, implants will be placed in the jaw, anchored in place with the jaw bone. The implants are made of titanium which fuses to the living bone, a process also called osseointegration — from the Latin osseus meaning “bony” and intergrare meaning “to make whole.” Ultimately, the dentures will be fixed in place to these implants.
If you have lost an entire arch of teeth, or are soon to have your remaining teeth removed because they are too unhealthy to save, you may be able to replace them with fixed dentures supported by dental implants.
Benefits of permanent dentures supported by dental implants:
- Look, feel and function just like natural teeth
- Don’t slip when you are eating or talking
- Help prevent bone loss in jaw
Cost of treatment will vary on the amount of implants used, the surgical procedures involved and the type of restoration placed on the implants.
