Unlike traditional dentures that have been around for thousands of years, permanent dentures remove the discomfort, don’t require adhesives in your mouth which typically contain harmful ingredients, and offer better function and support.

If you’re looking to be able to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, permanent implant dentures will allow you to speak, eat, and smile as if they were your natural teeth.

While we typically recommend dental implants for most patients, sometimes dentures may be a better option. If you’re still trying to decide then we recommend reading the differences between dentures and dental implants.

What Are Permanent Dentures

What are Permanent Dentures?

Denture implants or permanent dentures are false teeth that are attached to the jawbone.

Unlike traditional dentures, permanent dentures are held in place by dental implants. The implants make permanent dentures stable. They allow the patient to chew, talk, and smile more easily than with removable dentures.

These implant dentures are not removable like common dentures and feel almost exactly like natural teeth. This means that there’s no worry of them shifting or falling out. They also can’t get lost or misplaced.

Permanent denture implants have the benefit of being able to fit your exact needs, whether that’s one missing tooth, several, or even all of them. This works through partial permanent dentures. Partial permanent dentures are also available as implants. They can be placed where you need them, whether it’s just one missing tooth or many.

Dentures are made with various dental materials, including acrylic, nylon, porcelain, resin, or metal. We’ll be sure to discuss the entire process and answer any questions you have about dentures at your appointment with Dr. Pickett.
