Fixed dentures

An implant-supported fixed dentures 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.

How It Works

A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped post that serves as a replacement tooth root. Like a natural tooth root, it is housed in the bone beneath the gum. Implants are made of titanium, which has a unique ability to fuse to bone in a process called osseointegration. That’s what makes implants so sturdy and reliable (Learn More).

Today’s state-of-the-art implant systems enable a minimum number of implants to support a maximum number of teeth. That means as few as four implants can be used to support a full arch (upper or lower jaw) of fixed, non-removable replacement teeth. What’s more, it is sometimes possible to accomplish this remarkable, life-changing process in just one day!

Implant-supported dentures offer a more efficient and cost-effective strategy for permanent tooth replacement than using a single dental implant for every missing tooth, which is impractical and not recommended — particularly where bone loss has occurred. In order to restore the natural proportions of your teeth and gums with less bone volume, we need to create a lifelike prosthesis (replacement) that contains both teeth and gums; otherwise, any permanent replacement teeth would look overly long.

Types of fixed prostheses

Veneers

Thin ceramic plates are glued to the outside of the tooth and do not differ in color from the enamel. Veneers are designed specifically for Hollywood stars. They hide minor defects of the teeth (yellowness, chipping, curvature) in the area of ​​the smile.

Tabs

(Inlay, onlay, overlay, pinlay) – a miniature prosthesis, which can be used in a dental laboratory individually for a skin patient. As a part of the inserted details of the designer, the insert is inserted into the tooth and fixed with glue.

Dentures do not fit well in the teeth, if the filling is not a good idea – the upper part of the tooth is 30% shorter than the roots of the cells.

Tab materials for Implant-supported fixed dentures:

1. Composite, bio-alloys, zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), press ceramics (e.MAX), alloys of base metals (Co.Cr.6.Ni.Cr.7.NPG. (Yellow metal, licensed)).

Crowns

Put on a sawn tooth like a hat. In particularly difficult cases, the doctor uses both the tab and the crown at the same time.

Metal

This type of crown appeared first and is the simplest. Metal crowns are strong and durable, relatively inexpensive to install, but their appearance does not look like real teeth. There are two main types of metal prostheses:

Ceramet

Metal-ceramic crowns on teeth have a relatively low price, attractive appearance and durability – their service life is up to 15 years. The crown consists of a metal base and a ceramic coating. There are two types of metal-ceramic prostheses:

On bio-alloys

They are based on the gold-based alloy we have already considered. In fact, from the metal crowns discussed above, they differ in more aesthetic appearance while maintaining the advantages of gold prostheses: durability and hypoallergenicity. Ceramic coating makes this type of crown more expensive, but it remains one of the most affordable;

Metal-free crowns

Undoubtedly the most aesthetic and of course the most expensive option for prosthetics. Metal-free crowns are the secret to the perfect smile of many Hollywood stars and other idols of today.

What to Expect from Implant-supported fixed dentures

Three-dimensional (3-D) x-rays of your jaw may be taken to pinpoint the location of anatomical structures such as bone, sinuses and nerves. This will enable us to determine how many implants you need and the ideal location for them. For each implant we will need to make a small channel in the bone. You will feel nothing during the implant-placement surgery, which usually requires only local anesthesia. We will discuss your individual anesthesia options with you beforehand and make sure you are comfortable.

Once your Implant-supported fixed dentures are in place, we will attach a temporary set of teeth, which stays in your mouth approximately three months until the implants are fully fused to your bone and healing is completed. Because implant surgery is very precise and well-planned, people generally have little post-operative discomfort and begin functioning with their new temporary teeth almost immediately. However, it’s a good idea to avoid crunchy, chewy or tough foods for at least six to eight weeks.

When the process of osseointegration is complete, we attach permanent teeth that fit your healed gum tissues more precisely than the temporary ones did. With these teeth you can eat anything you want — and they will look as good as they feel! Your new teeth will require the same care as natural teeth: daily brushing and flossing, and regular checkups and professional cleanings. With conscientious oral hygiene, implant-supported fixed dentures should last a lifetime.
