Several research studies have clearly demonstrated that fixed dental implant solutions, compared to removable dentures, significantly improve patients' quality of life. (1)

Fixed dental implants allow patients to chew and speak properly as well as increase patients' comfort and self-confidence, and reduce bone resorption. (2)
