Permanent Dentures: The Strongest Option for Tooth Replacement

Permanent Dentures in Sterling Heights, MI | Mini Dental Implants

Many times in life, when we need something fixed, we have to settle for a quick, temporary solution. Whether it’s a leaky pipe, a cracked window, or a broken piece of furniture, a patch of duct tape or a drop of superglue can often give us the immediate result we need. But would that be the way you want those objects to stay forever? Wouldn’t it be much better, both in reality and for your peace of mind, if things were done right the first time? When considering how you will replace your missing teeth, that solution should get the same consideration. Sure, you could ignore it or get an old-fashioned solution that doesn’t function as well and will someday need to be replaced. Or, you could choose to replace your teeth in the most stable, functional, and reliable way possible with permanent dentures.

Permanent Implant Dentures: Your Gateway to a Better Life

Permanent Dentures in Sterling Heights, MI | Mini Dental ImplantsImplant dentures are designed for individuals missing all their teeth in one or both jaws. These aren’t your grandparent’s traditional dentures; they’re a much more advanced option, offering a blend of stability, durability, and natural aesthetics. Our practice leverages the latest dental implant technology to securely anchor these dentures directly to your jawbone. In some instances, we can even transform existing dentures into permanent dentures using mini dental implant technology, saving costs while upgrading comfort and function. The result? You can eat, speak, and smile with confidence, free from the worries of slipping dentures.

The benefits of implant dentures extend beyond convenience; they also promote better oral health. They prevent gum irritation from ill-fitting dentures, which put uneven pressure on the gum line. The implants act as tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone to halt bone and tissue loss and filling the empty tooth sockets to help prevent bacterial growth and shifting teeth.

Permanent implant dentures offer the highest level of stability and functionality while looking and feeling more like natural teeth. They can do this in part thanks to the power of mini dental implants.

The Mini Dental Implant Advantage

Thanks to their versatility and effectiveness, mini dental implants are at the heart of our implant denture solutions. Slimmer than traditional implants, these titanium rods offer a stable base for attaching dentures and other restorative dental treatments. They are perfect for individuals with less bone structure, allowing for a less invasive and more comfortable placement procedure. Some of the other benefits mini implants offer are:

  • Less invasive procedure: The placement process for mini implants is simpler and less invasive than traditional implants, reducing the risk of complications. The procedure only requires a tiny pilot hole and no incisions or stitches.
  • Quick recovery time: Patients experience minimal discomfort after their procedure, which goes away within 24-48 hours. Mini implants fully fuse with the jawbone in a few weeks, while traditional implants take 3-6 months.
  • Immediate results: Many patients can enjoy immediate improvements in functionality because we can load mini implants with new teeth immediately after placement.
  • More cost-effective: Mini implants require less healing time, less time at the dentist, and less material to create. Those factors combine to make them more affordable and accessible to a broader range of patients.

Types of Permanent Dentures

While we offer removable options for implant dentures, permanent dentures are not removable by the patient. This gives you extra stability and peace of mind. You no longer need to worry about your dentures moving, losing their fit, or being lost or damaged.

  • Semi-removable roundhouse bridge (Fix-on-Six®): This denture option is designed only to be removed by an implant dentist like Drs. Charles and Yvonne Pearson for professional cleaning. Otherwise, it remains attached to 6-10 mini dental implants to increase chewing power and reliability.
  • Non-removable roundhouse bridge: If you’re looking for a genuinely permanent denture, we cement this non-removable bridge to 10-12 mini implants to offer the highest level of power and dependability. This option is as close as you can get to the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.

Both options are made from zirconia, a durable and stain-resistant material for artificial teeth. If you’re confused about how a dental bridge could replace all your teeth, these are particular types known as roundhouse bridges. This means they replace an entire upper or lower arch and are supported by the implants, not your other teeth, as traditional bridges are.

How Much Do Permanent Dentures Cost?

Permanent implant dentures are an investment in your quality of life. While the cost varies depending on the type of denture and number of implants, mini dental implants are more budget-friendly than traditional options. We offer comprehensive consultations to help you maximize your insurance benefits and understand your financial options. Partnering with various financing companies ensures that treatment is affordable for every budget.
