Cost of non-surgical dental implants and alternatives that can be considered!

Cost of non-surgical dental implants, Dental implants are the alternative solution for filling the gaps left by extracted teeth, and are considered a method among many for solving problems related to tooth decay and fractures. Therefore, in this article, we will explore how the implantation process occurs, its cost, advantages, and outcomes.

Cost of non-surgical dental implants

Dental implant procedures are performed using two different techniques, one being surgical and the other using lasers. The cost varies depending on the medical tools used and the procedures followed. The prices of laser dental implants vary based on the location of the center or clinic, the experience of the treating doctor, the efficiency of the support team, and the quality of tools and devices used, varying from one place to another and from one country to another. Thus, the cost of non-surgical dental implant procedures at The Dental Center in Egypt reaches $600, equivalent to 18,300 Egyptian pounds at the current exchange rate, and this amount changes with fluctuations in the currency exchange rate.

Dental implant alternatives

There are some cases where treatment with new dental implants to replace lost or broken teeth and fill their gaps is not advisable due to the medical history of these cases. The nature of these cases can be mentioned as follows:

  1. Erosion in some areas of the jawbone.
  2. Falling or extracting one or a few teeth.
  3. Gum weakness in diabetic patients.
  4. The high cost of dental implants and patients’ inability to afford them.

Therefore, it was necessary to have alternatives to dental implants so that these empty spaces do not provide an opportunity for bacterial growth, infection, or other complications. We will explore these alternatives below:

  • Dental bridges
  1. Preferred in cases of losing one tooth or a few teeth.
  2. Fixed on both sides of the adjacent teeth to the missing teeth.
  3. Bridges consist of teeth linked together strongly.
  4. There are three types of them: firstly, the traditional dental bridge fixed on crowns of the adjacent teeth, secondly, the Maryland bridge fixed with porcelain, and lastly, the cantilever bridge used when there are supportive teeth on one side only.
  5. Its advantages include easy installation, quick application, and lower cost compared to dental implant procedures, and one of its most significant advantages is that it is painless because it does not require any surgery.
  6. Its disadvantages include not being efficient in cases where a large number of teeth are lost, being prone to breaking, putting pressure on the adjacent teeth causing their weakness, and improper placement leading to tooth decay and gum infections.
  • Dentures
  1. They resemble the appearance of natural teeth and are comfortable to use.
  2. There are three types: partial dentures for when a part of the teeth is lost, supporting the remaining part; complete dentures for when all teeth are lost; and finally, implant-supported dentures to help stabilize the teeth in the mouth.
  3. Its advantages include being the best alternative when the jawbone cannot support implants, helping in performing the functional role of teeth in terms of biting, chewing, and grinding food completely, and not requiring surgery to be performed.
  4. Its disadvantages include some differences in appearance between them and natural teeth, the need to remove them during sleep and place them in a saline solution and clean them before wearing them in the morning, the possibility of slipping from their correct place affecting eating and speaking, and inability to withstand pressure when consuming some hard foods.
  • Dental Crowns
  1. Made of zirconium, ceramic, or porcelain.
  2. Cover broken or decayed teeth.
  3. Advantages include ease of installation, the ability to design them to match each patient’s teeth, longevity, and natural appearance.
  4. Disadvantages include not being a substitute for partially lost teeth, susceptibility to cracking, and improper placement can lead to gum inflammation and tooth decay.
  • A device to maintain empty spaces
  1. A device that fills the gaps between the remaining teeth when some have fallen out, leaving many spaces.
  2. Advantages include ease of installation, no need for surgery or any alterations to the teeth, and low cost.
  3. Disadvantages include not aiding in the functional role of teeth in terms of biting and chewing due to its inability to withstand pressure, some patients feel discomfort when it’s placed in the mouth, plus it requires periodic cleaning. Filling teeth is one of the methods to treat their decay and fractures, so you can learn about the types of dental fillings and their prices through this article.

Laser Dental Implants

Laser dental implant procedures are carried out in several steps, which we will mention in the following points:

      • Applying local anesthesia to the patient’s gum.
      • Directing some light rays to the gap of the tooth to be implanted and opening a wound with the same measurements as the patient’s extracted tooth between the gum and jawbone.
      • A titanium implant is placed in this slit to replace the root of the extracted tooth.
      • Installing a crown over the protruding part of the titanium implant, which stimulates the growth of facial jawbones as it oxidizes by air oxygen and forms a layer similar to natural tooth bones. Healing occurs within weeks or months until the implant is secured inside the jawbone.
      • Placing one or more implants during the session and installing temporary crowns over them.
      • After three months, the patient follows up with the doctor to check the bone healing with the implant, and the doctor replaces the temporary crowns with permanent ones to complete the implant process.
      • Some additional procedures are performed in the same session, as some cases require surgical exposure of the jaw space to create space for dental implants, sinus lifting in the case of front teeth implants, or implanting stem cells to help form and strengthen the jawbone.
      • The titanium implant can be replaced with a zirconium implant made of ceramic, known for its durability and matching the natural color of teeth without any allergic reaction from the patient’s immune system against it.

Upper Jaw Dental Implants

Dental implantation in the upper jaw is carried out using the same steps mentioned in the previous title directly in this article. The only difference will be in determining the placement of dental implants and specializing them in the gap of the upper jaw, which may require some adjustments in the sinuses for some patients to properly secure the implants inside the jawbone. The doctor will open a wound in this jaw’s bone, secure the implant at this slit, and after healing between the implant, representing the tooth root in this case, with the gum and jawbone, a crown similar to natural teeth will fill the gaps.

What is computer-guided implantation?

Computer-guided implantation is a type of implant used in cases where patients suffer from bone thickness and does

not require surgical intervention before and after the implant, so patients undergoing this type of implantation do not experience any pain. This technique gives the doctor the opportunity to determine the necessary steps during the implantation process for each patient based on their health condition, which is clarified by the three-dimensional imaging of the jaws.

How are non-surgical dental implants performed?

The following mentioned steps are aimed at implanting some teeth in the mouth as a substitute to fill the gaps of damaged teeth without surgical intervention, so let us explore them in detail in the following points:

      1. Taking measurements of the patient’s jaws.
      2. The doctor undergoes three-dimensional imaging to examine the mouth.
      3. The doctor determines the procedures to be followed during the patient’s implantation process.
      4. Adjusting any angles on the measurements by the doctor after examining the imaging.
      5. Preparing the surgical guide, which is a cover placed over the gum at the jaw where the implant will be placed.
      6. Anesthetizing the affected area.
      7. Placing the appropriate temporary implants in their designated place.
      8. Placing the surgical guide over the implant.

It is noted that the implantation process is carried out without opening a slit in the gum, so there is no need for stitches and suturing afterward, i.e., the process is done without surgical intervention.

After non-surgical dental implantation

The non-surgical dental implantation process is performed under the influence of anesthesia, which gradually wears off within the first 24 hours after the procedure, and the patient leaves the dental clinic or medical center immediately after the implantation. After the side effects of anesthesia wear off, the patient begins to move the jaw, talk, drink water, and eat soft, light foods. The doctor prescribes some painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs to speed up the recovery phase. Then, after a week or ten days, the doctor re-examines the patient to ensure the success of the temporary implants and determines the date to replace them with permanent ones after several months and how to maintain dental hygiene using a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, and miswak.

Results and advice after dental implantation

The success rate of dental implantation is high and rarely fails, but there may be a failure rate that cannot be ignored, which is due to some incorrect practices followed by patients after the procedure. Therefore, there are some guidelines that must be followed to ensure the success of dental implantation, and let us mention these instructions in the following points:

      1. Take good care of oral hygiene and maintain cleaning the teeth with toothpaste and a brush daily.
      2. Reduce smoking and caffeine as much as possible after the procedure, at least for the next three days.
      3. Regular follow-up with the doctor to ensure the success of the implantation and continuously check the health of the teeth.
      4. Avoid hard foods that may cause the crowns and implanted teeth to fall or break.

Suitable cases for non-surgical dental implants

Non-surgical dental implantation is suitable for all patients, especially those with chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and many others. However, there are some important points that may affect the implantation process, depending on the patient’s dental medical history, such as weak jawbones, which is common in elderly patients and requires surgical intervention by the doctor to implant bones so they can support and hold the implanted teeth.

What are the factors that hinder the success of non-surgical dental implants?

There are some factors that cause the doctor’s inability to perform the implantation immediately and require some additional procedures to prepare the patient’s mouth and make it suitable for non-surgical dental implants. These factors include some congenital defects or medical conditions that require treatment for a period before undergoing the implantation process. So, let us explore these factors in the following points:

      • Infection or bacterial presence in the mouth, requiring the patient to receive the necessary antibiotics to prevent any inflammations and eliminate them before the implantation process.
      • The sinuses being in a sagging state due to the loss of some upper front teeth and weak upper jawbone, with one of the treatment methods being undergoing implantation in these spaces, and make your smile shine beautifully with front teeth implants at The Dental Center.
      • Weak jawbone, requiring its reinforcement with other bones and ensuring its good growth until the time of implantation later.

Advantages of non-surgical dental implant technology

There are many advantages to non-surgical dental implantation, including:

      • The process is completed within an hour or an hour and a half only, and the implant is placed within ten minutes.
      • No need to make an incision in the gum, and therefore no need for stitching afterward.
      • Less pain and discomfort felt by the patient after the non-surgical implantation process compared to surgical implantation.
      • No appearance of allergic reactions and swelling after the procedure.
      • Disappearance of numbness symptoms resulting from anesthesia in the case of non-surgical dental implants compared to surgical implants.
      • Safe for patients with diabetes and blood clotting disorders.
      • Reduces the chance of the patient’s body rejecting the implant.
      • The risk of infection after the procedure is very low.
