What Are Permanent Dentures?
Modern dental technology has gone further than traditional dentures. Now there are permanent dentures available that are a great alternative to having real teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that you must remove, permanent dentures are actually false teeth that are permanently attached to your jaw by dental implants. They can not be taken in and out.
Long-Term Solutions With Permanent Dentures
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), over 36 million people in America are edentulous (do not have teeth). Teeth play a major role in how you speak, eat, and look.
Permanent dentures can enable you to eat better without worrying about your dentures falling out or moving around while you chew as they function like your natural teeth. Trying to talk without teeth may cause a lisp, but with a permanent denture there to give you all your teeth and functionality, you can speak more clearly and eat more comfortably.
Stable dentures can also improve how you look and smile, making you feel more confident when socializing since they look and feel like your real teeth. Also, there's no fear that others will notice your dentures moving or falling out.

How the Procedure Works for Implant Supported Dentures
Placing denture implants requires surgery. Thus, it takes multiple visits for the until you receive the final permanent denture . The entire procedure to install permanent dentures can take up to several months and usually require the following steps:
Step 1: Consultation
You will need to undergo a consultation where your dentist will ask about your health history and determine whether your jawbone is thick enough to hold the implants in place. If not, your dentist might recommend a bone graft.
Step 2: Preparing Your Mouth with Temporary Permanent Denture Models
Impressions are taken of your jaw and your mouth and bite is measured. A temporary mold is made using acrylic material to test run for the exact shape, size, and bite of the new permanent denture. This denture will be used and inserted after surgery so you never go without any teeth.
Step 3: Placing the Implants
All teeth in the arch must be removed and bone grafting must be completed. Several implants are then place into the bone to hold the artificial teeth in place. This is an outpatient surgery done either under local or general anesthesia. The temporary permanent denture will fit to the new implants. You must fully heal before the fabrication of the final permanent denture.
Step 4: Installation
The final dentures are attached to your dental implants and adjusted as needed.
