Fully Fixed Teeth
Fully fixed teeth typically refers to dental restorations that are permanently fixed or attached in place and cannot be removed by the patient. This often involves dental prosthetics that are secured to dental implants or natural teeth
About Fully fixed teeth
- Initial Assessment: The process begins with a comprehensive dental evaluation to assess the patient’s oral health, the number of missing teeth, and bone density in the jaw.
- Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, a personalized treatment plan is developed. The plan outlines the steps for full-arch restoration, which often involves dental implants.
- Implant Placement: Multiple dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. The number of implants depends on the specific case but is typically four or more.
- Healing and Osseointegration: Over several months, the implants integrate with the jawbone through osseointegration, providing a strong and stable foundation for the final prosthesis.
- Final Prosthesis Attachment: Once osseointegration is complete, a fully customized, fixed prosthesis is attached to the implants. This prosthesis can be a full-arch bridge or a hybrid denture that resembles a set of natural teeth.
- Restored Functionality: Full-arch restoration significantly improves chewing and speaking abilities, similar to natural teeth.
- Aesthetics: The fixed prosthesis provides a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance, enhancing the patient’s smile.
- Durability: Full-arch restoration is known for its durability and long-lasting nature, making it a permanent solution.
- Preservation of Adjacent Teeth: Unlike traditional removable dentures, full-arch restoration does not require the alteration of adjacent natural teeth.
- Improved Oral Health: The fixed prosthesis is easy to clean and maintain, promoting good oral health.
