Permanent Dentures at Nova Implant Centre

Permanent dentures require at least two titanium dental implants to secure them in place, offering superior stability and a fixed solution for missing teeth. These dentures are firmly attached to the implants and do not need to be removed, making them a popular option for those who want a permanent and hassle-free solution.
 
When the dental implants integrate with the surrounding bone, providing a stable foundation for the dentures, chewing, biting, talking, and smiling are effortless with permanent dentures. The All-on-4 implants, a popular type of permanent denture, use four implants to hold a full arch of teeth.
 
If you’re uncomfortable with the idea of removing your dentures at night, a fixed denture may be a better alternative. This type of denture consists of simulated teeth and gum tissue, but it is not removable at home. Instead, more implants are used to secure it firmly in place, providing maximum stability and comfort.

What Our Happy Patients Have To Say

Fixed Denture Candidates

Who Can Get Fixed Dentures?

Although fixed dentures are a great solution for many patients, they may not be suitable for everyone. However, in most cases, lifestyle changes can help individuals become ideal candidates for the treatment.
 
When considering dental implants, those who smoke should consider quitting. Smoking hinders the body’s capacity to heal and prevents the implant from osseointegrating with the bone, which can dramatically lower the 98% success rate of implants.
The healing process can also be hampered by uncontrolled diabetes, resulting in gum disease and other oral diseases. Dental implants, however, are a good choice if your diabetes is under control.
 
Unlike traditional dentures, which require enough remaining bone to support them, implants are an excellent option for patients with bone loss. A fixed denture that is supported by a dental implant can work for patients with any amount of bone loss, although some may need bone grafting before implant placement.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Answers to
Same-Day Denture FAQs

The main difference between Same-Day dentures and conventional dentures is that Same-Day dentures are only meant to be a temporary solution for missing teeth. 

Same-Day dentures, otherwise referred to as “Immediate dentures” are placed in your mouth the same day as your teeth are extracted. They will serve as a temporary set of dentures until the healing process is complete and you can then wear your permanent dentures.

Immediate dentures should be kept in for 24-48 hours after your tooth extraction surgery, without taking them out. Taking your Same-Day dentures out during this period can make it difficult to put them back in due to the swelling.

After the initial 48 hour period, you should continue to wear your dentures but you’ll be able to remove them for cleaning and to give your gums a rest.

The time it takes to make a set of temporary dentures varies from one dental clinic to the next. However, it will typically take a week or two to create your Immediate denture at most clinic. This may involve several trips to the dentist while they’re being made.

Since they are made before your tooth extraction procedure, your Same-Day dentures will be ready to go when you get your teeth out.

 

It’s important to note that Same-Day dentures aren’t necessary, however, they do make the tooth extraction process much simpler.

If you’re only getting a few teeth extracted, your dentist might not recommend Immediate dentures. However, if you’re doing a full extraction, your dentist will likely suggest Same-Day dentures. If you have a strong gag-reflex, Same-Day dentures might not be right for you.

Same-Day dentures, or Immediate dentures are designed to only be temporary. They are typically worn for a maximum of 6-8 months until the arrival of a permanent denture.

It’s important to note that your temporary dentures will likely need to be relined throughout the healing process to make your denture more comfortable. Although it’s a temporary solution, Same-Day dentures can last just as long as conventional or permanent dentures – we don’t advise on long-term use of Same-Day dentures.

The main benefit of getting Same-Day dentures is that they’re quick and convenient. Immediate dentures  protect your gum tissues and also help control bleeding.

One of the biggest reasons patients opt for getting Same-Day dentures is to avoid walking around in public with no teeth. A set of Immediate dentures will help you keep the function of your teeth to eat, speak, and smile confidently while you’re waiting for your permanent dentures.
