A Head-to-Head Comparison of Fixed Vs. Removable Teeth

When it comes to correcting missing teeth or gaps in teeth, patients generally have two options: removable dentures or permanent fixed implants. Removable dentures are the more common of the two, but this is based purely on cost, not functionality. In fact, traditional dentures only return approximately 20% of the range of functionality of your natural teeth. Dentures are also prone to slipping, and often produce friction from rubbing on the gums. This results in costly damage and wear and tear to the dentures themselves, as well as pain, discomfort and/or potential oral infection as a result of the constant rubbing.

An intermediate option between traditional dentures and modern fixed implants is implant supported dentures. With this type of implant, patients receive a permanent implant that is fused to the jawbone, though the dentures themselves are removable (under the guidance of a dentist). Implant supported dentures return roughly 60% of the functionality of natural teeth, and offer a more budget-friendly option compared to full arch dental implants, which return nearly 99% of the range of functionality of your natural teeth.

Unrivaled Experienced And Unparalleled Results With Fixed Teeth Implants

Our team at iSmile Dental has decades of experience placing both fixed and removal dental implants, and offers world-class implant restorations for patients in the Arlington and Fort Worth areas. We understand that each patient is unique, which is why we recommend scheduling a consultation, in order to learn which is the most appropriate implant procedure for both your budget and your oral health goals. We focus primarily on single implants, but offer a full range of services and/or referrals for patients in need of more advanced full mouth restorations.

We offer both standard (acrylic) and snap-on zirconia dentures, depending on your personal preference and budget. Zirconia fixed bridges are biocompatible, and more often than not, provide the better option in terms of esthetically pleasing results that intricately reproduce the color, shape and feel of your natural teeth. An implant-supported zirconia fixed bridge is one of the best options available for missing tooth correction, and has the power to truly change people’s lives through self-confidence, self-esteem and improved quality of life. We also offer a complete range of sedation options at all of our office locations, ensuring your dental implant procedure is safe, effective and as pain-free as possible.
