Which is better, dental implants or dentures?

It is well known that most patients, when they lose a natural tooth or molar, face difficulty in being able to chew or eat easily, and it also presents an unpleasant appearance, especially if the loss is in the front teeth. Medical studies and research have also shown that the loss of a natural tooth or molar over time leads to a decrease and atrophy in the size of the jaw bone in the missing tooth area. Therefore, you must go to a specialist doctor immediately upon losing a tooth to preserve the remaining bone and restore the shape and chewing efficiency, which is known as replacing the missing tooth, either through implants, which 90% of patients prefer, or dentures, which 10% of patients prefer, because each one is distinguished from the other for different reasons, and this is what we will address in the article.

Restore your beautiful smile and self-confidence through our outstanding services in dental implants and dentures at The Dental Center.

What is the dental denture procedure?

It is the process of replacing damaged teeth with other artificial teeth that resemble natural teeth as much as possible. These dentures are essential, especially in case of losing more than one tooth or molar, to evenly distribute the forces on all teeth, as they work to protect the remaining teeth from any damage, injury or concentration of force and pressure on them. Due to the availability of these dentures, there is no longer any problem or suffering or an unsightly appearance of the teeth.

Types of Dental Dentures

Dental dentures, also known as dental crowns, are specifically designed artificial teeth that are placed over damaged parts of the teeth. They are used to preserve the health and integrity of the teeth in the mouth and help them perform their functional tasks and withstand various pressures and conditions in the mouth. There are two types of dental dentures:

Fixed dental dentures: These are permanently fixed dentures on the remaining teeth by the doctor. They are used to replace missing or damaged teeth because they provide the most natural appearance, strength, and stability for the teeth. They cannot be removed at home, and if there are any problems with them, the doctor should be consulted immediately. They are characterized by their durability and resilience, which allows them to last for more than 15 years or more if the patient takes care of them and maintains good oral hygiene on a regular basis. There are two types of fixed dentures:

  1. Fixed bridges: These are substitutes for extracted teeth and molars, as they work to fill the gaps between teeth and support the installed tooth to help it perform its functional tasks optimally.
  2. Crowns: Crowns are used to restore and protect damaged teeth and molars from any pressure or harm.

Removable dental dentures: These are known as dental bridges and are used to replace missing teeth. They are manufactured in the laboratory and installed in the dentist’s office, and they are characterized by lasting for several years with the patient. They are made of strong raw materials that give them the necessary durability to withstand pressure. Removable dental dentures are divided into two types:

  1. Partial dentures: These dentures are suitable for teeth that have lost part of their structure.
  2. Complete dentures: These dentures are suitable for cases where the upper or lower jaw, or both jaws, have completely lost all their teeth.

We provide a comprehensive solution for all dental problems, through access to dental dentures to improve the appearance and function of damaged teeth.

Prices of Dental Dentures

Before getting dentures, the patient should be aware of the importance of dental dentures, as dentures help maintain the shape of the teeth in a good way, in addition to avoiding many gum diseases and other benefits that the patient gets after the denture procedure. To get these dentures at reasonable prices, we offer you at The Dental Center everything you need for the patient to get artificial dentures. The prices of dentures at the center start from 2200 and reach 5000 Egyptian pounds. Of course, there is a difference in prices between centers, and this is due to several reasons, including:

  1. The variety of materials used for dentures.
  2. The procedures that the dentures undergo before installation.

What is the dental implant procedure?

Dental implants are considered the latest alternative solution to replace the teeth that the patient loses, and this result is the most successful because it does not affect the teeth or surrounding tissues in any way. Dental implants replace missing teeth through titanium supports to ensure the success of the operation, but some specific conditions must be met, including:

  1. The patient must have recovered from diseases that affect bone condition, such as diabetes and osteoporosis.
  2. Maintaining and persisting in oral and dental health.
  3. Replacing the missing bone and then completing the implant.
  4. Ensuring that the bone to be implanted is far from the nasal sinuses and jaw nerves.

How are dental implants done?

The dental implant procedure is performed through a series of steps that the specialist doctor follows, which are as follows:

  1. The doctor performs a complete examination of the mouth and gums, then orders a panoramic X-ray and a CT scan of the jaws from all sides to better view the bones and assess the condition of the tooth to be replaced.
  2. After that, the area where the implant will be performed is thoroughly sterilized.
  3. After consulting with the patient and viewing the X-ray images, the doctor develops the appropriate treatment plan for the patient.
  4. Using a local anesthetic in the entire area and sedating the patient so that they do not feel any pain during all stages of the procedure, from extraction to installation, and sedatives may be used.
  5. The doctor extracts the broken or decayed tooth, and in some cases, there may be a remaining root that needs to be removed.
  6. The doctor makes a number of holes in the gum through which they can expose the bone and reach a deep part of it.
  7. They place the titanium implant inside the bone using special tools and drills.
  8. Then they cover the titanium implant with gum tissue.
  9. At the end, the doctor places a final restoration to cover the teeth, and this is done within a period ranging from 2 to 6 months, depending on the quality of the bone. If healing occurs between the implant and the jaw bone, and the body does not reject it, it is called osseointegration.

It is possible that the upper jaw may require 6 months for this healing to occur, while the lower jaw only needs 3 months.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants have many advantages that distinguish them from other methods, and among the most important of these advantages are the following:

  • Dental implants allow the restoration of the functions of missing teeth, such as chewing and natural and effective speech.
  • Dental implants contribute to improving the aesthetic appearance of the mouth and face, as the implanted teeth can be designed to blend naturally with the surrounding teeth.
  • Dental implants integrate with the surrounding bone and consist of a sturdy root, providing high stability and stability for the implanted teeth.
  • The presence of implanted teeth helps maintain bone density in the jaw and prevents bone resorption and deterioration of the facial structure.
  • Implanted teeth can be cared for in the same way as your natural teeth, making maintenance easy and convenient.
  • Restores the patient’s ability to smile and their self-confidence.
  • Allows the patient to eat food with ease and comfort.

Disadvantages of Dental Implants

The dental implant procedure has many drawbacks that may outweigh its benefits, including the following:

  1. It requires high financial costs to perform the procedure, as the implant method is more expensive compared to other replacement methods.
  2. Dental implants require several visits to the doctor and a long period of wound healing and integration of the implant with the surrounding bone.
  3. Some complications may occur, such as infections, bleeding, or improper integration of the implant, but this is rare.
  4. An immune reaction of the patient’s body may occur, leading to rejection of the implant and failure of the procedure, although this event is rare.
  5. Implanted teeth require continuous care and regular maintenance to ensure their sustainability and prevent future problems.
  6. The implant procedure is considered a surgical procedure, which makes some patients feel apprehensive about undergoing this experience.
  7. The need for certain conditions, such as a specific size and density of the bone, which increases the difficulty of performing the procedure. To learn more about dental implant problems, see the following article.

The most important of these available alternatives for patients are as follows:

Dental Bridges: These are molds designed in the shape of connected teeth used to fill the gaps where teeth are missing and maintain the spaces between the teeth.

Dentures: These are among the most famous alternatives to dental implants that help replace missing teeth and restore the natural functions of the teeth. They can be made based on different materials such as metal and porcelain, and they are divided into two different types:

  1. Complete dentures.
  2. Partial dentures.

To learn about the costs of installing complete dentures, see this article.

Dental Crowns: These are the upper part that resembles the natural tooth in shape and function entirely. The crown can be installed individually as an alternative to implants if the person has a healthy and sound tooth root and does not need implants.

Space Maintainers: These are devices used to preserve the gap between two teeth or molars and prevent them from moving towards this gap. It is a temporary alternative suitable for people who have a future plan for dental implants in the empty space. There are two types of these devices (fixed – removable).
