At Palm Desert Center for Advanced Dentistry, Periodontics, Cosmetics & Implants, our dentists and team can see you for an appointment for fixed dentures in Palm Desert, California. This option can be used to replace an entire row of missing teeth or as a solution for several spaces in your smile.
Fixed dentures are similar to implant-supported dentures in that they are held in place by multiple dental implants. However as their name implies, they are fixed in place and cannot be removed for cleaning. The first step is to place the dental implants. Depending on your smile needs, you may need between four and six implants. After the implant sites have healed and the implants have fused to the jawbone, you will return to our office for your fixed denture. The denture itself is placed on a bridge that will be attached to the implants.
Unlike other types of dentures, fixed dentures have a very realistic and natural appearance that will greatly enhance the aesthetics of your smile. They are extremely stable and are not prone to slipping. Additionally, they tend to have a longer life than traditional dentures. We invite you to call 760-340-1030 If you would like to meet with our dentists to explore this restoration option.
