Implant Supported Fixed

Implant-supported fixed denture

What do you think of when you hear the word “dentures?” Is it a set of removable teeth that sits in a glass when not in use? That type of removable denture does still exist, but these days there's a far better alternative: Implant-supported fixed dentures.

An implant-supported fixed denture is a lifelike set of false teeth — complete with prosthetic gum tissue — that stays in your mouth all the time. It is securely and comfortably anchored by several dental implants that become an integral part of your jawbone once inserted during a minor surgical procedure done in the dental office.

Implant-supported fixed dentures are ideal for people who have experienced deterioration of the gums and jawbone, which is an inevitable effect of tooth loss. Bone is a living tissue that needs constant stimulation to maintain its volume and density. That stimulation normally comes from the teeth; when they are lost, the bone that used to surround and support them starts to break down. If this is allowed to continue, your facial features may begin to sag — giving you a more aged appearance . Unfortunately, wearing removable dentures actually accelerates this process; but wearing fixed dentures halts it — while restoring the underlying support to your facial features (cheeks and lips) that your jawbone structure used to provide. This will make you look younger. (edited)
