Permanent dentures are an alternative to traditional removable dentures. They aren't the same thing as dental implants, but they are affixed to them. Surgically-placed dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth and create a stable base for permanent dentures.
What's the difference between dentures and permanent dentures?
Permanent dentures are an alternative to removable dentures for missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, permanent dentures are typically held in place by two or more surgically-placed dental implants, making them stable and allowing the patient to chew, talk, and smile more easily than with removable dentures.
Time frame and process for permanent dentures
After your mouth has fully healed, your dentist will take several bite impressions of your jaw and mouth. The dentist will use these impressions to create a denture that's custom-molded to the exact shape of your mouth, for a more precise fit.
How long do permanent dentures last?
According to statistics, full dentures last anywhere between 8 and 10 years, while partials have maximum longevity of 15 years. During this time frame, both your mouth and your dentures can undergo major changes, resulting in an improper fit and unappealing appearance.
Are permanent dentures better?
Permanent Dentures: In general, permanent dentures are a more comfortable and better fit than temporary options and can typically last for years without further adjustments. Despite being more expensive, permanent dentures offer a better fit and better durability.
