When You Need a Fixed Denture and not an Implant

Blog Post When You Need A Fixed Denture And Not An Implant

At GraDent dental clinic, we understand that every patient’s oral health needs are unique. Dental implant is a popular and effective solution for tooth replacement. But there are situations where a fixed denture might be the more suitable option for you. Here’s when you might consider a fixed denture

Bone Density Concerns

Dental implant require a certain amount of healthy jawbone to be successfully anchored. If you have inadequate bone density, a fixed denture could provide a stable and functional solution without the need for extensive bone grafting procedures.

Medical Considerations

Some medical conditions or medications may affect your body’s ability to heal after dental implant surgery. In such cases, a fixed denture can be a safer and more appropriate choice.

Cost Considerations

While dental implants offer long-term benefits, they can be a significant investment. If you’re looking for a tooth replacement option that is more budget-friendly, a fixed denture can provide stability and aesthetics without the higher upfront cost of implants.

Time Constraints

Dental implant procedures often require multiple appointments and a healing period between implant placement and restoration. If you have time constraints or prefer a faster solution, a fixed denture can be fabricated and placed more quickly.

Multiple Missing Teeth

When several teeth are missing in a row, a fixed denture can be designed to span the gap. Dental implants, on the other hand, might require individual implant posts for each missing tooth, which could be a more complex and expensive treatment.

Reduced Invasive Treatment

Some patients prefer less invasive procedures. While dental implant surgery is generally well-tolerated, if you’re uncomfortable with the idea of oral surgery, a fixed denture can offer a non-invasive alternative.

Preference for Removability

A fixed denture can be an excellent solution if you prefer the option to remove it for cleaning or comfort. This is particularly useful for patients who may have difficulty maintaining oral hygiene around implant-supported crowns.

Our experienced dental team is dedicated to providing personalized treatment recommendations based on your specific oral health needs, preferences, and circumstances. During your consultation, we will discuss the pros and cons of both fixed dentures and dental implants. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision that aligns with your dental health goals.
