To improve your confidence and aesthetics there are multiple options available that vary based on price, feel, technicalities etc. Let us break it down for you, so you can make the right choice.
Preparation and drilling of the jawbone are done to receive the implant under local anesthesia. In certain cases, a bone graft may be needed if the bone does not have enough height or lacks strength.
Following insertion of the implant, a healing period of 3-6 months is observed to allow a proper union between the jawbone and the implant.
A second surgical procedure is done to expose the implant head and provide an attachment for the final prosthesis such as a dental crown.
The last stage involves the placement of the final prosthesis to the implant. The prosthesis may either be cemented or screwed once the surrounding tissue has healed, post the second surgery.
To determine whether the gums and soft tissue are healthy enough for new teeth, a complete oral examination including X-rays is performed.
A second impression is taken on a tray that is specifically made for your mouth, and border moulding ensures that the contour and size of the mouth vestibule are duplicated.
The top and lower teeth must be properly aligned in order for the denture to fit snugly. To achieve a correct bite, dentists utilize a loose-fitting denture and a rim of wax to determine the approximate positioning.
During the next appointment, you can make any last-minute adjustments to the size and finalize your dentures' appearance.
Finally, the whole set of dentures will be sent to your doorstep, and after three days, you will be contacted for a check-up.

Whether dental implants or dentures are better depends on the individual's specific needs and goals. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They offer a more natural look and feel, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. However, they are typically more expensive and require a surgical procedure for placement.
Dentures, on the other hand, are removable replacements for missing teeth and can be an affordable option. They can also be made to look natural and can be easily removed for cleaning. However, they can slip or shift in the mouth, and some people may find them uncomfortable to wear.
No, dental implants and dentures are not the same.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone to mimic the root of a natural tooth. Implants are designed to blend in with your natural teeth and provide a long-lasting, stable, and natural-feeling replacement for missing teeth.
Dentures, on the other hand, are removable replacements for missing teeth. They can be full or partial and are designed to fit over the gums. Dentures are typically made of acrylic or plastic materials and are held in place by natural suction or adhesives.
Typically, dentures are less expensive than dental implants. The exact cost can vary depending on the materials used and the specific procedure, but on average, dentures cost several thousands less than dental implants.
There are several alternatives to dental implants for fixing missing teeth, including:
The best option for fixing missing teeth should be discussed with a dental professional.
It is not recommended to wear dentures 24x7. The gums and bones need time to rest and recover, and wearing dentures constantly can lead to discomfort, irritation, and sores.
It is generally recommended to remove dentures at night and clean them thoroughly before replacing them in the morning. Your dentist may also advise you to remove dentures during meals to allow your gums to breathe and rest.
No, it is not recommended to clean dentures with toothpaste. Toothpaste is abrasive and can damage denture material. It is recommended to use a gentle denture cleaner or soap and water to clean dentures.
Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the denture material. Rinse dentures thoroughly after cleaning and let them air dry before putting them back in the mouth.
