When it comes to fixing missing teeth, permanent or fixed dentures are reliable solutions for some patients. Particularly for those who have faced a significant tooth loss or decay and also struggle with the fit and feel of the conventional dentures due to the loss of bones in their jaw. In such cases, the permanent implants are placed in the jawline and anchored in place with the jaw bone.
These implants are usually made out of titanium, an element that helps the implant fuse to the ling bone in a process known as Osseointegration. If you have lost an entire arch of teeth and are about to lose the remaining teeth as well, it is possible to replace them with permanent denture implants.
Mentioned below are some of the benefits of permanent dentures supported by dental implants:
They look, feel and function exactly like natural teeth.
They stay in place when you eat or chew.
Fixed or non-removable teeth on the implants can help prevent bone loss in the jaw.
Like permanent dentures, removable dentures also use implants to keep dentures in place. Removable dentures prevent slipping and offer additional facial support, especially for patients having significant bone loss. What’s different with removal denture implants is that they can be taken out for an easier cleaning that takes less effort and time. Removable denture implants are also cost effective as they only cost about half of what fixed permanent dentures cost.
