If you enjoy the feel and comfort of traditional dentures but want a more permanent solution, fixed dentures may be perfect for you. At Rizkalla Dental Associates, we're proud to offer quality fixed dentures in Plymouth to help restore your smile's functionality and improve its appearance.

Our office has spent years improving our fixed denture process so that the entire experience is as hassle-free as possible for you. Although fixed dentures are ideal for seniors' unique dental challenges, they're excellent full tooth replacement options for patients from many different stages of life. We look forward to meeting you and discussing how fixed dentures can positively impact oral health. Call us today to schedule your next appointment with our dental team!


What Are Fixed Dentures?

Traditional dentures are composed of artificial teeth on a pink acrylic base that rests on top of your gums. Many patients are familiar and comfortable with the look and feel of dentures. Fixed dentures are similar to traditional dentures in that they also have artificial teeth and a base made to look like your natural gums.

However, the similarities end there as fixed dentures are held in place by surgically placed dental implant posts. The result is a permanent tooth replacement solution that's easy to care for at home and can last years of use without needing repairs. An additional benefit of fixed dentures is that your implant posts stimulate your jawbone and help prevent bone loss.

Our Fixed Denture Process

When you visit our practice for the first time, our dental team will outline what you can expect during the fixed denture process. We'll begin by conducting an extensive oral exam using technology like x-rays. Although all your permanent teeth may be gone and you regularly use traditional dentures, it's important that your gums and jawbone are healthy enough to withstand dental implants.

Once you've gotten the green light from our dentist, we'll surgically place your dental implant posts to secure your dentures in place. You'll then be provided healing-safe dentures as your gums and bone fuse with your new posts. Once they are properly healed, we'll bring you back to take detailed impressions of your upper and lower arches to craft your permanent dentures. Finally, when your dentures are ready, our team will place them and show you to clean and care for them.

Fixed Dentures FAQs

We know how frustrating it can be to have questions that go ignored or unanswered. Our friendly and communicative team is here to address any concerns you may have about dental implants. Some of the most frequently asked questions about our Plymouth fixed dentures include:

Are fixed dentures reliable?

Fixed dentures are popular for their reliability as they're secured by long-lasting dental implants. Typically, implant posts are made of titanium or other strong metals that allow them to stand up to wear and tear very well.

We recommend brushing and flossing your fixed dentures like your natural teeth. By properly caring for them, you help prevent potential complications from occurring.

By properly caring for your fixed dentures and regularly visiting the dentist, they can go years without needing to be repaired. However, your dental implant posts are permanent and will more than likely never need to be replaced.
