Fixed dentures utilize four-to-six surgically inserted titanium dental implants which will remain securely attached inside a person’s mouth for a lifetime. They are generally much more reliable and stable than removable dentures, making them a preferred method for replacing lost teeth. Since the surgically inserted implants provide the same functions as natural tooth roots, fixed dentures feel remarkably similar to a person’s original teeth.
Once fixed dentures have been attached, they cannot be removed except through oral surgery. They become a permanent part of a person’s everyday life. This makes a set of fixed dentures more than just an individual’s replacement teeth; they are the very essence of a person’s smile. With this in mind, our experts take great pride in ensuring that our fixed dentures look as natural as possible, giving you a smile you want to show off to others.
The performance of fixed dentures is exceptional, and since they are secured with dental implants, fixed dentures will prevent a person from experiencing jawbone deterioration or facial structure loss. Over time, the titanium implants will fuse with the jawbone, allowing the fixed dentures to feel even more secure and natural.
With their unmatched performance and extraordinarily natural feel, fixed dentures are considered to be the gold standard for teeth replacement. There is simply no comparable alternative for patients who require an entire top or bottom row of new teeth. And when cared for properly, a set of fixed dentures will usually last a lifetime.
