Conventional Implants

Dental implants have been developed to artificially replace a natural tooth root and are inserted into the jawbone to support a restorative or replacement crown, bridge, or denture. They might be the ideal choice for people who are missing one or more teeth due to an oral health problem, periodontal disease, or an accident.

Conventional implant procedure generally takes 6 months to 1
year but through basal implants, you can get fixed teeth in 72 hours. Your
dentist can suggest what option is best for you depending on the condition of
your jaw bone and the time available.

1. Benefits

• Success rates of treatment are in excess of 95%.
• They are durable and permanent
• Minimal maintenance is required other than good oral hygiene and professional dental checkups and cleanings
• Feel natural and comfortable and provide the best aesthetics
• Only tooth loss solution that prevents jawbone loss
• Teeth adjacent to the gap do not need to be modified
• Can be more cost-effective in the longer term, due to the long lifespan of the treatment.

• Choose Dental Implants When If you are a candidate for treatment and can afford dental implants, this is your best option. Therapy offers the best aesthetic outcomes and is a long-term solution to tooth loss.
• Despite being more expensive up front, implant restorations can be more cost-effective in the long run than dental bridges because they won’t need to be changed as frequently. Also, a dental implant prevents the need for your dentist to chop down good teeth because it protects the jawbone and gum tissue.



2. Disadvantages :

• Treatment is more invasive – a surgical procedure is required to insert the implant
• Treatment takes longer and requires a greater number of dental visits compared to other options.
• Most expensive tooth replacement solution.

3. Implant-Supported Fixed Bridge :

It is not required to replace every single tooth with a dental implant when using an implant-supported fixed bridge. Instead, the implant-supported fixed bridge will replace a number of lost teeth, and in certain cases, an entire arch of teeth. Depending on the type of dental implant your Implantologist uses and the number of teeth being repaired, a different number of implants may be necessary. An implant-supported bridge can be screwed or cemented into place and resembles a fixed bridge supported by teeth in appearance. The bridge may occasionally be screwed onto the implants by an Implantologist since doing so makes it simpler to remove the bridge for cleaning or repair. The bridge’s screw holes are concealed.


4. Benefits

• Provides very good aesthetic results.
• Feels and looks very natural, making it easy to speak and to eat virtually anything.
• Easy to look after and can be brushed and flossed just like an ordinary tooth-supported fixed bridge.
• Cost is lower compared to replacing every single tooth with a single dental implant.
• Should last for many years before it needs replacing.
• No need for your dentist to grind down healthy teeth.


5. Disadvantages

• Only suitable if the missing teeth are situated adjacent to each other.
• Requires a greater number of visits and treatment takes longer to complete compared to a tooth-supported fixed bridge or a denture.
• Implant treatment does require a small surgical procedure.

When to Choose a Fixed Bridge Supported by Implants?
Anyone who wants to experience the feeling of having solid, stable teeth that are not detachable may find this choice to be suitable. It is possible to forget you ever lost your teeth with this approach, despite it being more expensive than All-on-Four implant-supported dentures. Your teeth are sturdy enough to let you consume almost any meal you want, within certain limits. Moreover, it offers outstanding aesthetics, particularly as gum-colored porcelain can be used to replace any missing gum tissue in the bridge.


6. All-On-Four Implant Supported Dentures / All-On-Six

Four implants may be sufficient to support a lower denture with a full arch, however six implants may be necessary to support an upper denture. Two implants are placed during this procedure directly in front of the arch where your front teeth once stood.
The last two implants were positioned on either side and tilted at a 45-degree angle towards the back of the mouth. On its fitting surface, the overdenture will include unique attachments that will allow it to clip onto the Implantologist.


7. Benefits

• Affordable due to the fewer number of implants required to support a complete arch of teeth.
• More stable and strong than dentures.
• Make it possible to enjoy a wider variety of foods compared to dentures.
• Can be constructed without a plate so it will feel less bulky and eating will be more enjoyable because you will be able to taste food more easily.
• Can easily be removed for cleaning.


8. Disadvantages

• A denture is still removable, which some people may find undesirable.
• Care needs to be taken when eating, as foods that are particularly chewy or hard could damage the denture.
• Special attachments on the fitting surface will need to be regularly maintained and must be replaced periodically.
Choosing an Overdenture or All-on-Four Implants when.
Although the denture is removable, this procedure is reasonably priced and enables patients to experience the stability of permanent teeth. Those who have lost a lot of jawbone may also benefit from treatment. This is due to the fact that the implants are placed closer to the front of the jaw, where the bone is more likely to be thicker, stronger, and capable of supporting dental implants.
After treatment, it is frequently possible to load the implants quickly, and patients may be able to get their new implant-supported denture just a few hours or days afterwards.
