More Stability, Better Results
Traditional dentures are a quick and affordable replacement for missing teeth, but many patients find them to be uncomfortable and inconvenient. As a result, Dr. Akeel may suggest securing your dentures with dental implants for a more stable and long-lasting restoration.
Explore our guide to learn about the many benefits of implant-supported fixed dentures.
Benefits of Fixed Dentures
Implant-supported fixed dentures offer several unique advantages that traditional dentures can’t match, including:
- Stability — Fixed dentures are secured to your jaw so they’ll never fall out or slide out of place when you’re eating or speaking.
- Comfort — Implant-supported dentures are customized to your teeth for a perfect fit.
- Convenience — Your fixed dentures can be kept clean with daily brushing and flossing, so you won’t have to worry about soaking solutions or messy adhesives.
- Health — Since the implants integrate directly with your jaw, they’ll stimulate healthy bone growth and prevent your teeth from shifting.
Our Fixed Dentures Treatment Process
The procedure begins with Dr. Akeel placing two to six dental implants in your jaw, depending on how many teeth you’re replacing and how much healthy bone tissue you have in your jaw.
After the surgery is finished, you’ll need to allow three to six months for your implants to fuse with your jawbone. This process is called osseointegration and it’s the key to your restoration’s stability.
While you wait for your customized dentures, we can provide you with a temporary restoration so you don’t have to live with gaps in your smile.
Once your mouth is fully healed, you can return to our office and Dr. Akeel will finish your treatment. At this point, all that’s left to do is enjoy your sparkling new smile.
