Fixed teeth are the apex of all implant retained restorations. These restorations are fixed permanently into the implants placed into the jaw bone and can not be removed unless a surgeon or clinician exposes the screw holes and removes them in surgery.
About Fixed Teeth
We have many different strategies and materials at our disposal so we can give the best possible result for our patients in most situations.
- How long will my denture last?
We suggest your denture will require assessment and possible new dentures every 6-8 years depending on tooth wear, fit and aesthetics.
- How long will the dentures take to make?
Generally dentures will take 4-6 weeks to complete however this will vary on each case depending on complexity and treatment required.
- Will the dentures break?
All dentures have the possibility of breaking as do natural teeth. The restorations are made with the best possible materials to resist this as much as possible however breakages are still possible.
- Will the dentures require impressions?
There is a possibility of scanning the mouth rather then taking traditional impressions, however, they may still require smaller impressions depending on the situation and the case.
