What are the distinguished differences between a fixed denture and a removable denture when making a decision between the two options?

There are different types of dentures available, including fixed dentures and removable dentures.

Fixed dentures, such as implant-supported dentures, are held in place by either snapping onto implants or being screwed down on implants. This provides superior retention and feels more like natural teeth.

Removable conventional dentures, on the other hand, tend to move around in the mouth and require adhesives. While they are less expensive and don’t require surgical placement of implants, they can decrease bone quantity and quality.

Implant dentures, on the other hand, preserve bone quantity and quality by placing the implant in the bone, which helps to retain bone longer. Overall, implant-supported dentures offer better function and strength, allowing you to eat and bite normally without slippage or the need for adhesives.
