Fixed Denture Conversion

Dental implants are preferred by many people when considering ways to replace missing teeth, but for some, it has been too expensive in the past. Others are concerned about how invasive the procedure might be for a full arch permanent prosthetic and do not want to devote additional months to the process. Some individuals decide an implant-supported, removable denture may blend the benefits of implants with the lower cost of a removable denture. While this works for some patients, others feel as though they may have settled for a less optimal plan than they wanted.

We are proud to offer a new option that combines the best of implant dentistry and dentures. This minimally invasive technique converts your implant supported overdentures to a fixed arch without additional surgery. It is an affordable, pain-free way to move from a removable snap on denture to a fixed arch of replacement teeth without months of healing and waiting for your permanent replacement teeth.

The New Option: Fixed Denture Conversion

In the past, patients were unable to switch to a fixed arch because the attachments and material wasn’t yet invented to convert an overdenture to a permanent one.

With the advent of this new locator procedure and attachments a fixed denture conversion is now an amazingly possible. The same implants used to support a removable denture can support a permanent, fixed arch. This proprietary technique uses Zest Dental Solutions’ Locator Fixed™ dental conversion system.

Why You Will Love Locator Fixed Denture Conversions

There are many reasons to consider having your current snap-in denture changed to an even more comfortable and convenient fixed complete denture, including:

  • A slimmer, more attractive denture
  • A more natural-looking gum line
  • No need to remove your dentures for cleaning and sleeping
  • No more issues with slipping dentures due to loosened attachments
  • No need to reline the denture every few years
  • The roof of the mouth is not covered, so you can taste more fully and can sense hot and cold better (the roof of the mouth was already uncovered with an implant supported upper denture).
  • Costs less than getting traditional fixed full arch implants
  • No additional surgery is needed, reducing the risk of complications and helping to avoid time constraints
  • Less time in our office and more time to enjoy life
