A fixed denture is basically a denture that is secured in place by the use of dental implants (metal support pieces implanted into the jaw). They are sometimes referred to as "permanent dentures". These dental implants function very similarly to natural tooth roots, and because of this, the fixed dentures feel much more natural than standard dentures kept in place by adhesives. With fixed dentures, there is no glue, there is no mess. They are very much secure, and very natural looking.
