Fixed Dental Implants vs. Removable

We get this question frequently and are always happy to help educate our patients about full-mouth dental implants! The critical difference between the two options is that removable implants can quickly be snapped on and off as needed, and the fixed implants cannot be removed unless you make an appointment to see one of our dentists. They’re, well, relatively permanent because the goal is to make it as convenient as possible for you without having to worry about removing and soaking your teeth. Full-arch dental implant restoration options are also available for patients as an alternative if moderate bone loss is present on more than four to six teeth. The procedure for fixed implants is very similar to the single-tooth implant procedure. However, all of your remaining natural teeth must be extracted before you can get full-arch implants.

Key Benefits Of Fixed Full-Mouth Dental Implants

Fixed implant-supported dentures, which are commonly also known as full-arch dental implants, can provide comfort and convenience without the hassle of having to remove them to clean. You can simply brush, floss, and clean your teeth without ever removing them. They look and, most importantly, feel natural, which makes them more appealing to our patients. If you have only a few missing teeth, but your mouth is healthy, single-tooth implants may be a good option for you. But if you’re missing more than four to six teeth or most of your teeth, you may be better off with full-arch implants. These options will be addressed with you during your initial consultation with our dental experts. Some other highlights of benefits to consider:

Health Benefits Of Dental Implants

Full-mouth dental implants act like natural teeth, and you wouldn’t even know aesthetically or by the comfort that they’re artificial. Dental implants restore the full chewing power that may have been lost through losing teeth through the years. Not only can you enjoy the foods you love again, but you don’t have to worry about taking them out and cleaning them regularly. They’re to be treated as if they were your own natural teeth. Full-mouth dental implants can help prevent facial sagging and premature aging by supporting your bone structure. One of the most important benefits of full-mouth dental implants is that they can help keep your gum disease-free.

Procedure Process & Recovery Time

Our Pflugerville, TX team would start the process with an x-ray to analyze the jawbone density, and once it’s been confirmed that it can support the process, we will numb the soft tissue and surgically access the jawbone. A small hole will be drilled into the jawbone, and a titanium post will be inserted. This post needs to fuse to the bone, also known as “osseointegration.” Once it has been determined that the post is solid, an extension or abutment will be added to reach the surface, and an artificial crown will be affixed to the abutment.  Recovery time varies depending on the patient, but for the most part, the average time to heal is between four and six months. Healing time is influenced by many factors, including the general health of the patient and how well they follow the post-implant instructions.
