Permanent Denture Implants
Eat, speak, and smile with confidence
Have you been dealing with significant tooth loss or decay or has jawbone loss made it difficult to wear conventional dentures? Permanent or fixed dentures could be the solution you’ve been waiting for!
Unlike conventional dentures that are held in place with suction or denture adhesive, permanent dentures are secured with dental implants that fuse to your jawbone. This happens thanks to a process known as osseointegration which comes from the Latin word osseus meaning “bony” and intergrare meaning “to make whole.” Once this process takes place and the implants are a permanent part of your jaw, your dentures can be securely attached to them.
Whether you’ve lost an entire arch of your teeth or if you will soon have all of your remaining natural teeth removed, fixed dentures supported by dental implants could provide a comfortable and secure solution.
Permanent denture implants come with several advantages:
- They look, feel, and function just like regular teeth
- They stay securely in place while you eat or talk
- Further bone loss in the jaw can be prevented and form can be restored in your mouth

Are denture implants permanent?
Dental implants are designed to be permanent, but the denture restoration placed on them may need to be replaced as necessitated by wear.
It’s important to take proper care of your dentures and your existing teeth and gums to help them last as long as possible.
Are fixed dentures removable?
Fixed or permanent dentures on implants should only be removed by your dentist or denturist for cleaning and examination.
