What are Fixed Implant Dentures?
There are multiple reasons why patients lose a majority of their teeth, including gum disease and other dental complications. Traditionally, dentures have been fixed into the mouth with special adhesives or creams, but even the strongest of these methods can still result in shifting and looseness of upper and lower dentures. At the Westinghouse Dental, we utilize the innovative technique of attaching dentures to permanent dental implants for a more secure and confident fit. These dentures can either be removable or fixed, depending on the patient.
What are the Benefits of Fixed Implant Dentures?
- The ability to talk, chew, and bite with full functionality without having to worry about your dentures slipping or falling out
- Fixed implant dentures can be cleaned the same way as your normal teeth with no need for denture cups or dissolvable cleaning tabs.
- This option allows the patient to enjoy a full set of teeth more naturally without self-consciousness or anxiety
What is the Process to Get Fixed Implant Dentures?
As these dental prosthetics often involve the placement of more dental implants than removable implant dentures, it may take several months to place the implants and prepare the mouth for the fixed dentures. Our Dentist will begin by placing biocompatible titanium screws and bone grafts into the jawbone, allowing a few months for the bone and hardware to bond and form a strong foundation for your dentures.
Once the implants are secured, the dentures are permanently screwed onto the implants for a snug fit. During your consultation with our medical team, your condition and preferences will be evaluated, and we will help you choose the treatment option.
