Permanent Dentures

If you’ve lost a few or a vast number of teeth because of dental trauma, decay, or disease, you might be considering dentures. While Dr. Fawzi Hijazi offers an extensive array of modern dentures, permanent dentures are a fantastic option for patients who desire tooth replacement with as much normalcy as possible

Our Approach to Permanent

So, what are permanent dentures? Whether you need full or partial dentures, permanent dentures supply remarkable steadiness since they are anchored with dental implants. Plus, implant-supported partial dentures and full dentures rarely require adjustment because they actively prevent bone atrophy. Over time, these advantages can add up while you enjoy an enhanced quality of life with a fully functioning smile.

The Basics

Generally, permanent dentures come in two styles: partial and full dentures. Implant-anchored partial dentures can replace more than one natural tooth in the upper or lower jaw. Full permanent dentures can replace an entire row (or two) of teeth. Above all, the San Antonio Smile Pros team creates permanent dentures designed to fit your mouth.

Measured up to traditional dentures, permanent dentures deliver durability and comfort. Typically, permanent dentures require multiple visits to our North San Antonio dental office to achieve the tailored fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Permanent Dentures vs. Dental Implants: What’s the difference?

Although permanent dentures are not the same as dental implants, they are fastened to them. Surgically placed dental implants mimic natural tooth roots after tooth loss and establish a durable base for permanent dentures.

What can I expect during the permanent denture process?

The tooth-replacement journey normally starts with a consultation at a dental office. At San Antonio Smile Pros, Dr. Hijazi will take into account your health history and closely examine your teeth, gums, and jaws to see if you qualify for permanent dentures. 

If you are a candidate for permanent full or partial dentures, Dr. Hijazi will create a treatment plan and take digital impressions of your smile. Then, he will surgically place dental implants into the bone and place a temporary denture while your bone and implants situate. When osseointegration successfully happens, you will return to our Hildebrand Ave. office to place permanent dentures.

How do I take care of permanent dentures?

From nightly soakings to specialized products, traditional dentures can feel like a hassle for some. Full and partial permanent dentures do not (and can’t) be removed on a daily basis. With permanent dentures, you can keep them clean and bright by brushing them daily and rinsing them with an antibacterial mouthwash. Plus, we suggest visiting the dentist regularly.
