Fixed Dentures – Enjoy a Secure Alternative to Traditional Dentures

Missing teeth can lead to embarrassment and have a negative impact on your health. In order to eat properly and feel confident about your appearance you need to replace your missing teeth. Fixed dentures offer a secure alternative to traditional, removable dentures. With a fixed prosthesis Dr. Pun can help you achieve a whole and beautiful smile once again.

How Do Fixed Dentures Work?

Typically, dentures are held in place with natural suction or possibly an adhesive. They are removable and require soaking and cleaning. Fixed dentures involve the patient receiving six to eight implant posts inserted into the jaw. The prosthesis will then be attached to the post. The dentures are held in place and cannot be removed.

 The Benefits of Fixed Dentures

There are a number of benefits to fixed dentures, including:

  • No slippage when talking or eating
  • Long lasting
  • Easy maintenance
  • Lifelike appearance
  • Reduce loss of jawbone density, preventing the aged look that often follows tooth loss

Do I Qualify for a Fixed Prosthesis?

You will need to meet the same qualifications necessary to receive dental implants, which means disease-free gums and enough jawbone tissue to support the posts.
