Alternate To Dental Implants – What Options Do We Have?

It is time to get out of your misery and deal with those missing teeth in your mouth. We understand if you have reservations regarding conventional dental implants, and it is completely okay to look for alternative options; we are here to help you with that.

Same-day Teeth Restoration

Just like the name indicates, the same-day teeth restoring technique replaces your missing teeth with anchor/ artificial teeth the same day without wasting time on the socket.

This directly fixated implant gets its primary stability via a threading mechanism on the implant’s outer side. The whole process makes sure that the primary stability given is sturdy enough to work until the secondary kicks in after the process of bone integration – or also known as osseointegration.

The same-day anchor makes it possible to place a loading onto the implant right after and restore it using a dental bridge/denture.

Conventional Dental Bridge

The name clearly signifies or explains what this teeth restoration method has in store for you. A conventional oral bridge gets rid of the missing tooth or multiple teeth by filling in between the healthy standing teeth.

However, there is one catch. Dental bridges are seemingly more destructive compared to dental implants, as teeth near the gap must first be shaved down. That is why dentists mostly prefer using implants to replace the missing tooth.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are much smaller in size compared to regular teeth implants. The best part about them is the installation ease and the price of treatment as it is cheaper. Luckily, they offer more comfort than conventional implants because their size is not as big. However, the drawback is that you can’t load implants in the same way.

Adhesive Dental Bridges

For adhesive dental bridges, the missing tooth is placed in the middle between the wings on each side, stuck to the tongue with healthy teeth surrounding it.

By using this, you get an edge in maintaining and retaining your natural teeth on both sides of the gap without having to lessen them a lot, just like you need to do so for dental bridges.

However, even the strongest adhesive bridges have a tendency to detach, loosen out and fall off more often than you think.

Although it is easy for your dentist to replace them, this is a very time-consuming and inconvenient process.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures may be the cheapest option to tackle missing teeth. However, the main problem is that they are easily removable, and many people do not want their teeth out at night.
