In this method, there is no need for gingival and dental surgery to implant, and you can perform dental implants by placing artificial teeth or veneers.
In recent years, especially during the last 30 years, there have been various methods for dental implants that can be used to restore and replace lost teeth. One of the most widely used of these methods is dental implants.
These methods include:
Use of artificial teeth
Use resin breeches
Today, implant placement is one of the most common methods in the world that has a long shelf life. Of course, this durability depends on several factors.
However, people may not be interested in this method due to various reasons and disadvantages, such as the need for surgery for implant placement, its long treatment period that can last 3 to 6 months, its cost, and.. In this case, we want to continue to introduce dental implant methods without implants.
Fixed bridge dental implants
One of the methods of implantation of teeth without implants is the fixed bridge method. In fixed bridge implants, three teeth are usually placed in the void, with the middle tooth sticking together like a bridge. This type of implant placement usually takes more than one session and requires the dentist to attach the bridge teeth after preparing the side teeth.
By preparing a tooth mold for the empty space and sending it to the laboratory, the dentist makes artificial teeth using materials such as metal, ceramic, glass or a combination of them and then connects the bridge teeth to them. The advantages of this method can be said:
The appearance of the teeth is very similar to the main teeth
No need to remove teeth to clean them
It costs less than dental implants
Advantages of the fixed bridge method
Durability and longevity of teeth: Bridges can have a permanent structure and last up to ten years or more.
Improving the appearance: As can be seen in the picture, this method can make the appearance of the teeth more beautiful and fill in the gaps.
Rapid treatment: A fixed bridge is a treatment that can be done in two sessions, but if the tooth is implanted, it can take up to six months.
Disadvantages of the fixed bridge method
This method is more suitable for those who have lost 1 to 3 teeth in a row.
In this method, it is necessary for the lateral teeth to be structurally free of caries. Because the side teeth act as the base for the bridge.
The adhesive connecting the bridge teeth may disappear after a few years.
Basic teeth can decay if you do not follow good hygiene.
Artificial tooth method
Another method of implant placement without implants is the use of dentures. In this method, for implantation of teeth without the use of implants, usually by attaching a plastic base that is the same color as your gums, a framework for attaching artificial teeth is created. One of the features of this method is the removal of those teeth from the mouth, which can be done for cleaning.
Advantages and disadvantages of dentures
Regarding the advantages and disadvantages of this method, the following can be mentioned:
One of the cheapest methods is to place new teeth.
You can get the look of your teeth as much as before.
It has the fastest length of treatment.
Feeling too many teeth can be one of the disadvantages of this method.
Dentures, especially in the lower part, may slip into place.
Keeping dentures fixed in people depends only on the anatomy of their mouth and jaw.
To prevent or coordinate changes in the structure of the jaw, it is necessary to review the base of the denture from time to time.
