The American College of Prosthodontists estimates that 36 million Americans are edentulous, meaning they’ve lost all their teeth, and approximately 15% of that group have a set of dentures made each year. But with so many different types of dentures available, you may be wondering which is right for you. If you’re one of the many Americans looking for dentures and want the highest level of stability and functionality, you should consider permanent dentures.

What Are Permanent Dentures?

Permanent Dentures in Montville, NJ | Parsippany Implant DentistPermanent dentures are a highly stable and non-removable type of implant dentures. We cement a zirconia roundhouse bridge to 10-12 mini dental implants to replace all your teeth on top or bottom in the most secure and functional way possible. The lab that makes our dentures will customize them to fit your unique bone structure and facial shape. This customization and the strength of mini implants make permanent dentures the closest you can get to regaining the function, look, and feel of natural teeth.

The Issues With Traditional Dentures

The old-fashioned dentures you picture sitting on your grandparent’s nightstand have served their purpose for many years, but they have several problems that must be addressed. For starters, they’re much bigger and bulkier than permanent dentures, affecting the natural look of your facial structure. And while they bring back a full smile, these artificial teeth don’t pack the same biting power as your natural ones, making some foods difficult—or impossible—to eat.

Traditional dentures also have the disadvantage of instability. They need to rest snugly against your gums for support. This means that, over time, they will need constant professional readjustments to maintain their tight fit. Why? While using traditional dentures, your gumline and jawbone shape deteriorate (as a natural consequence of tooth loss), and constant removal for cleaning affects the dentures themselves. After a while, the fit will loosen, and they’ll begin to move in your mouth, a phenomenon known as “floating dentures.” This can lead to embarrassing moments while eating, speaking, or laughing, where your teeth unexpectedly shift or fall out.

The Benefits of Permanent Dentures

Permanent dentures have many advantages over traditional dentures, making them a preferred choice for many of our patients:

  • Superior stability: We use a series of mini implants positioned along the top and bottom jaw to provide support. This incredibly strong connection makes permanent dentures as stable as possible.
  • Most natural look and feel: Old-fashioned dentures are bulky and can be uncomfortable as they lose their fit. With permanent dentures, people will only know those aren’t your natural teeth if you let them in on the secret.
  • Excellent durability: Zirconia, a material that’s ten times stronger than the enamel of your natural teeth, is used to make the artificial teeth for your bridge. These permanent dentures, supported by the sturdy titanium of mini dental implants, are made to last.
  • Minimally invasive procedure: Mini implants provide the foundation for your denture, and placing them in your gumline is simple and requires no surgery or incisions. Dr. Ferrari can place each implant in minutes, so the entire process of placing the implants and attaching new teeth can all occur in one visit.
  • No more fuss: Perhaps the best part of choosing permanent dentures is peace of mind. Imagine not having to worry about your dentures slipping, the need for frequent removal and cleaning, the mess from using adhesives for extra stability, or the risk of losing or damaging them when taken out. If you’re exploring your denture options, these are all issues that permanent dentures can help you avoid.

Permanent dentures function like natural teeth, and you’ll care for them the same way. While the artificial teeth are stain-resistant and won’t develop cavities, a consistent oral hygiene routine is essential for the rest of your mouth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups with Dr. Ferrari will ensure your new teeth last a lifetime.
