Best Dental Fitting or Implantation

Dental fittings have reached a level of development where lasers are used to fix modern cosmetic raw materials that specialists and researchers now resort to using in both fixed and removable fittings for various types of teeth and their problems. On the other hand, implantation has become safer and more akin to natural teeth, possibly using the effect of light beams from a laser device to properly fix the artificial tooth part in the gum cavity. When asked about the best technique between implantation and fitting, the answer will be that the stability and durability of the implanted dental implant give it priority in choice due to these properties supporting the mouth’s teeth in their ability to withstand all pressures and changes occurring in the mouth. This stability of the implant is due to its reliance on the healing of the implanted teeth with the jawbone’s cavity, unlike fittings that depend on adjacent teeth for fixation. The color of the implanted teeth is closer to that of natural teeth compared to the color of artificial fittings.

Dental Implantation

Dental implantation is a technique aimed at implanting the artificial tooth root into the jawbone cavity, then the tooth pulp and adding the crown at the end of the procedures; to fill the void resulting from the extraction of damaged teeth or their breakage, which prevents the accumulation of food and bacteria and the spread of infection in the mouth or movement of the teeth from their places and their crookedness.

Implantation helps in restoring the health and integrity of the teeth in the mouth, giving them an attractive aesthetic appearance and at the same time the strength and durability, which contributes to their ability to perform their functional tasks perfectly when speaking and eating, preventing digestive system diseases resulting from indigestion. The implantation process is the best technique that helps give the patient the ideal attractive smile that everyone dreams of, and you can learn about the best types of dental implant screws through this article.

What is Dental Fitting?

The process of dental fitting is a technique targeting the gaps resulting from accidents that adults and children may be exposed to or neglecting teeth cleaning, which gives the opportunity for bacteria to grow and spread infection in the mouth. Therefore, its role is important and vital in maintaining the health and safety of teeth and oral health. It is a technique in which damaged teeth are replaced with artificial ones, and the tooth parts are gradually fitted with almost the same color as the natural teeth, giving them the ability to fill the void of a number of adjacent missing teeth through a bridge consisting of several crowns, thus distributing the pressure evenly in the mouth without pressing on one more than the other, so as not to cause any health problems or multiple risks.

The Difference Between Dental Implants and Dental Fittings

There are many differences between dental implants and fittings, and there are various comparison points that clarify these differences, which can be explained in the following points:

  • Difference in terms of composition

Dental Implants: The implant consists of 3 parts: the implant made of titanium, which heals with the jawbone, the second part is the crown or cap usually made of silver or gold or any of the different metals, and the last part is the abutment that helps to fix the crown onto the implant.

Dental Fittings: Fittings consist of two main types or sections: fixed fittings, which are either a crown or bridge fixed in the gap resulting from the extraction or loss of damaged teeth, and the porcelain and zirconium are the most famous raw materials used to manufacture fixed dental teeth. Unlike the removable type, which is manufactured from zirconium known for not adhering to the teeth.

  • Difference in terms of pain level

Dental Implants: The implantation process does not cause as much pain as the patient feels when extracting their damaged teeth. The implantation process is performed under local anesthesia, general anesthesia, or sedatives depending on the patient’s condition and the number of damaged teeth and the extent of the damage.

Dental Fittings: Artificial fittings do not cause any pain to the patient because the patient undergoes anesthesia in one of its procedures, preventing any possible suffering.

  • Difference in terms of appearance

Dental Implants: The implanted fixture in the jaw cavity can be made from metals, the most used or popular being gold or silver. If the implants are made from cosmetic ceramic materials, there will be different shades available that resemble the natural teeth colors.

Dental Fittings: All fittings are made from zirconium, which is characterized by its color stability in addition to the similarity of its color shades with natural teeth colors. You can learn about the details of fitting a front tooth and its importance through this article.

What are the Types of Dental Implants?

There are many types of dental implants due to the different pathological problems patients face, and the density of the bones and the number of damaged teeth play an important role in determining the required implantation process. Examples of dental implantation procedures include:

  • Bone grafting procedure

This is a procedure that requires the quality of bones present in the jaw cavity to assist the doctor performing the operation in implanting the titanium screw. In this operation, the doctor may resort to using bones from other sources or a hormone that stimulates bone growth.

  • Traditional implantation

This is a procedure in which the doctor removes all damaged teeth, a step that requires 3 months for the bones to heal again. Afterwards, the doctor follows other steps, the most important of which is implanting titanium fixtures into the jawbone cavity to support the artificial teeth. Getting dental implants at The Dental Center means restoring oral functions and confidence together.

How is Dental Implantation Done?

The dental implantation process is carried out in several steps as follows:

  • The treating doctor and the surgeon oversee the implantation process due to its importance and the need for both in the important procedures of the operation.
  • Administering anesthesia to the patient at the specified concentration.
  • The first step in the implantation process is the implantation of the screw or fixture into the jaw cavity.
  • The second step is waiting for a period that can last up to 6 weeks or 6 months until the implant wound heals.
  • Taking patient-specific measurements for fitting the crown.
  • The third step is fitting the crown and testing its suitability for the patient’s teeth to make any necessary adjustments.

How Long Does Dental Implantation Take?

The implantation process is one of the longest therapeutic techniques used in treating tooth loss and gaps. Usually, the fixture is implanted and then the gum is given a 3 or 6 months opportunity for the wound to heal, then completing the procedures within another 3 or 6 months. Therefore, the total steps of the implantation process require 12 months or more in some cases.

Some Benefits of Dental Implants

The implantation process is characterized by several benefits that positively reflect on the patient’s teeth, and the advantages of the implantation process include:

  • Preserving the jawbone surrounding the damaged teeth from any potential damage.
  • It is a process that gives satisfying results to the patient.
  • Helps in protecting and stabilizing the remaining mouth teeth.
  • Assists in fixing removable artificial teeth.
  • Improves the overall appearance of teeth in addition to supporting them in performing their functional tasks when speaking and eating.

What are the Disadvantages of Dental Implants?

There are some risks that may result from implant surgery, which can be mentioned as follows:

  • Allergic reactions to the anesthesia used during the implantation process.
  • The gum wound resulting from fixing the implant in the bones may be exposed to infection.
  • Possible bleeding in one of the blood vessels of the damaged teeth or surrounding tissues.
  • Sensitivity and nerve diseases.
  • Tooth sensitivity towards heat and cold.

Types of Dental Fittings

Dental fittings are substitute teeth specially manufactured for each patient based on their medical condition, the severity of the damage, the affected area, and the number of teeth that need repair. The aim of the fittings, as mentioned earlier in the article, is to try to prevent all teeth in the mouth from getting damaged, crooked, and losing their shape and functional role, in addition to reducing the infection from different bacteria, thus maintaining a healthy and sound mouth. There are two main types of dental fittings:

  • Fixed fittings: These are crowns fixed in the jaw cavity using adhesive chemicals used by the doctor in the clinic to ensure their stability and immobility, preventing any problems. They can only be removed by a doctor and contain metal crowns and porcelain crowns.
  • Removable fittings: These are movable bridges fitted by the doctor in their specified place but the doctor may teach the patient how to remove and refit them again. Their main role is to fill adjacent gaps, and their types are partial sets or complete sets.

    Types of dental prostheses

    Dental prostheses are artificial teeth that are specially manufactured for each patient based on their medical condition, the severity of the damage, the affected area, and the number of teeth that need repair. As we mentioned earlier in the article, the purpose of prostheses is to try to prevent damage to all the teeth in the mouth, crooked teeth, loss of their shape and functional role, in addition to reducing infection with different bacterial infections, which keeps the mouth healthy and sound. There are two main types of dental prostheses:

    • Fixed prostheses: These are crowns that are fixed in place in the jawbone cavity using adhesive materials by the dentist to ensure stability and prevent movement to avoid problems. They are also only removable by the dentist. These teeth contain metal crowns and porcelain crowns.
    • Removable prostheses: Removable prostheses are movable bridges that are installed by the dentist in their designated place but the dentist can teach the patient how to remove and reinstall them again. The main role of these prostheses is to fill adjacent gaps, and their types are partial or full dentures. At The Dental Center we provide a variety of services to meet the different needs of customers, from fixed prostheses to removable ones.

    2. Disadvantages of removable prostheses: The disadvantages of these prostheses include feeling embarrassed and uncomfortable at times when speaking or eating food due to the slightly large size, which negatively affects the psychology of the patient, and this is due to the ease of their movement in place.

    My experience with dental implants

    Dental implantation is one of the most helpful techniques in solving many problems in the mouth and giving good results, and many have resorted to this therapeutic method recently with patients who can financially afford its costs in order to get rid of any other potential problems that may appear later. The results that appear in many experiments that have undergone the implantation process at The Dental Center include getting teeth identical to the natural teeth in the mouth for life, and Ms. Saeed confirmed that when recounting her experience with dental implants, as she was suffering from problems in one of her posterior wisdom teeth which led to its extraction to prevent the occurrence of other serious complications, and from here came her decision to resort to the center in an attempt to implant an alternative wisdom tooth.

    Dental implant prices

    Dental implantation is one of the most effective therapeutic techniques in solving tooth gap problems, and this is due to the stability it provides to the teeth and mouth throughout life after installation, so it is really one of the safest treatment methods, and the cost of implantation is always somewhat expensive when compared to other treatments. This is due to the many procedures patients need and the degree of precision that must be adhered to when applying them and the high cost of some of the raw materials special to them, so the implantation of one tooth may range between 8000 and 14,000 Egyptian pounds.

    Dental prosthesis prices

    Dental prostheses can be made from different raw materials, which causes a difference in the cost of prostheses due to the different nature and cost of this raw material from the rest. Hence, there are varying price rates between the different types of dental prostheses, such as zirconia prostheses, the cost of which ranges between 1500 and 4500 Egyptian pounds, while porcelain costs between 850 and 2300 Egyptian pounds, unlike Emax prostheses, which are the most expensive prostheses due to their good properties, and their prices may range between 1900 and 5000 Egyptian pounds.
