They are the least costly, non fixed dentures which sit on the gums , takes support from the adjacent teeth and are to be taken out at least twice in a day for cleaning.

One of the best option is dental implant in which a titanium or zirconia screw is placed in the bone, when it integrates a dental crown is placed after 3-5 months of healing. Best part of this type of treatment is doesn’t involve shaping of adjacent healthy teeth for support. Takes support from bone itself in fact it also prevents it from getting lost over time. Implant is for lifetime once fused into the bone completely will not require multiple re- placement into bone if hygiene maintenance is good.

  • Implant anchors the bone with its threads and stops it from getting lost with time.
  • No change and distortion in the shape of face due to loss of teeth or bone
  • Can be done immediately after removal of damaged or decayed tooth.
  • Closely resemble natural tooth root and simulate emergence of artificial crown from implant as if natural tooth is coming out of root.
  • Feels like natural teeth to use , smile, look and bite.
  • Easier to clean than a clumsy 3 unit bridge which is joined together on top.
  • Lifespan: implants come with lifetime warranty. Thus low long term cost
