If you are suffering from partial or complete tooth failure or if you are missing teeth, then permanent dentures can help restore your smile at North Texas Dental Surgery near Allen, Tx.
To avoid the shortcomings of removable dentures, there are permanent dentures. Known also as fixed dentures or non-removable dentures, these are essentially denture devices consisting of a row of prosthetic teeth that are connected to a framework held in position by dental implants.
The benefit of permanent dentures is the fact that you can chew, bite, eat, talk and smile with more confidence than you would with removable dentures. This is because they are stable and feel natural. You will not have to worry about your prosthetic teeth slipping or sliding when you speak or eat.

Benefits of Implant Dentures
- This treatment requires a shorter healing time compared to conventional implants. It is also less invasive and therefore less postoperative discomfort.
- Using non-removable dentures allows you to eat different foods and speak more comfortably than removable dentures
- You will have the perfect bite because they deliver more uniform distribution of the biting force
- You do not need to remove the dentures for cleaning, making them fuss-free maintenance
- This type of denture is durable and that means reduced cost in frequent replacements
- Permanent dentures support your facial feature and therefore give a more natural, youthful appearance
- They can be customized to fit precisely with maximum comfort
Advances in dental technology now make it possible for only four implants to replace all of the teeth on the bottom or top of your mouth. This dental procedure is referred to as All-on-4 (AO4) dental implants near Allen, TX. In the past, you would need to undergo a series of minor surgical procedures in order to place dental implants for each missing tooth. This procedure limits this need to only four implants each for upper and lower jaw. If you meet the criteria for all-on-4, you will have immediate functioning teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures
A qualified dentist performs the procedure, like all other dental implants. The dentist will begin the treatment by first examining your mouth and then determining the best areas to surgically place the implants. The candidates are usually those facing failing teeth but it will take the experienced eyes of a skilled dentist to evaluate your candidacy for the procedure.
Advanced dental offices will perform a 3D CT scan of your jaws to determine if you need implants and/or other interventions before performing All-on-4. The scan will also help your doctor to create the right treatment plan for you.
Once the precise locations of the implants have been determined, a minor surgical operation places the four dental implants on the upper and lower jaw. A full arch with prosthetic teeth is secured. The process will require IV sedation, where you will fall asleep while the treatment is performed.
