What are fixed dentures?

Have you got a loose denture that makes you self-conscious and limits what you can eat? Or do you want a permanent solution for your tooth loss that won’t affect how you talk, smile, and eat

Then fixed or implant dentures in Toronto could be just what you’ve been looking for.

Offering a stable, cost-effective solution that meets your everyday needs, implant-supported dentures are a great alternative to removable dentures.


At Twogether Dentures, we believe that today's dentistry should be clear, effective, and healthy.


How do fixed dentures work?

Rather like the root of your tooth holds your natural teeth in place, fixed dentures utilize a titanium post that anchors your false teeth to your jaw.

The number of anchors required will depend on how many false teeth you’re having fitted and the strength of your jawbone – but there tend to be 4 to 6 posts per jaw for a full set of dentures.

As these posts are secured to your jaw, they provide a stable, durable foundation for your dentures, which is why they’re a long-lasting solution.

To fit these posts, any infected, decayed, or broken teeth will be removed before the implants are inserted. These are left to heal for several months before your new dentures are fitted.

What are the benefits of getting fixed dentures in Toronto?

  • No slipping when you talk or eat
  • The same function, feel, and look like your natural teeth
  • Prevent any loss of bone in your jaw
  • Can last for the rest of your life with proper care

Unlike removable dentures, fixed dentures can offer you a much more convenient solution that gives you the freedom to carry out your day-to-day tasks as normal.

And with ongoing care from our team at Twogether Dentures, your oral health and overall well-being will benefit from these innovative solutions.

How long do fixed dentures last?

Fixed Dentures Smile Danforth Toronto

The length of time your fixed dentures last largely depends on the design and how they are maintained over time. With the adequate professional and personal care, your fixed dentures can last up to a lifetime, likely with the need for repair and removal along way.

This is to ensure that your dentures are in tact and that they are doing their job of helping make life more enjoyable, comfortable and easy for you.

Increase your fixed dentures lifespan by:

  • Closely following your denturist's specific instructions first and foremost
  • Flossing carefully at least once a day
  • Brushing twice a day as recommended by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA)
  • Using dentist and CDA recommended oral care products
  • Seeing your dentist regularly for check-ups & cleanings
  • Getting adjustments as needed
  • Contacting your dentist if you experience sudden pain and/or start to show signs of infection

Tip: remember that while fixed dentures tend to feel like your real teeth with time, they are not and that they need special care.

At Twogether Dentures, Denturist Meri Paparisto takes a careful and personalized approach to your dentures, striving for comfort, longevity and a boosted self-esteem.

She's here to help support you in discovering denture options to best fit your needs, lifestyle and budget. Choosing the right denture solution for you doesn't have to be a "toothache".

Are permanent dentures cheaper than implants?

Navigating the scope of dentures and dental implants available can be understandably confusing and disorienting. At Twogether Dentures, we want to help clarify these areas to help patients feel more empowered in their research and decision-making processes. 

Permanent dentures are an extensive form of dental implants. Dental implants are available as: 
  • Single implants to replace a broken, damaged or missing tooth
  • An implant supported bridge to fill the gap where multiple adjacent teeth are missing
  • Implant-retained dentures to replace an entire arch of missing teeth 
Within each of these umbrellas of dental implants and implant dentures, there are a variety of specialized options available in terms of: 
  • Shape
  • Function
  • Materials
The cost of dental implants and permanent dentures can vary based on the factors above as well. In most cases, the cost is determined by the: 
  • Type of implants or dentures: Single, bridges, partial, full, etc. 
  • Complexity of each individual case 
  • Properties used to recreate your teeth: Porcelain, acrylic, gold, etc. 
The common thread between most implant options is that a metal post is implanted into the area where the root of a real tooth is missing. And a replacement tooth sits atop this metal post to give you a lush, robust smile. 

Our team is trained to help you select the path that best fits your dental health needs, your desired lifestyle and your budget. For major treatments, we offer payment plans to ensure that funds are less of an obstacle towards achieving the smile you want. 

We want to see you thrive and feel your best with a smile that you're not only proud to show off — but that truly serves you in your every day life.
