What is a fixed dental implant bridge prosthesis?
Fixed dental implant bridge prosthesis is employed in full mouth or partial mouth rehabilitation, wherein the prosthesis is permanently cemented to restore/replace missing teeth.
What is a removable dental prosthesis?
Removable dental prosthesis is used to replace missing teeth and can be removed by the patient as and when required.
What are the drawbacks of Removable dentures?
Removable dentures are unstable, at times. Also, primarily, food consumption becomes a major concern. With time, these dentures lose their fit and have to be replaced. Bone loss is accelerated due to the forces exerted by the denture, resulting in loose dentures. Also, due to bone shrinkage, the distance between the nose and chin reduces leading to deterioration of the facial features.
Moreover, aesthetically this prosthesis is not so pleasing. The acrylic used to resemble natural gums hardly does justice and the aesthetics is compromised, resulting in lowered self confidence.
Why dental Implants?
Dental implants are fixed to the living jawbone, providing support and hence there is no bone loss. It hardly takes approximately 4 implants for rehabilitation of the upper/lower jaw. This is because of the firm anchorage these implants offer. The concern about loose or ill-fitting denture is eliminated. Also, implants resemble natural teeth, unlike the removable dentures. Therefore, aesthetics is not compromised, resulting in an increased self confidence.
Moreover, there is no discomfort while consumption of food. Thus, their aesthetics as well as function resemble natural teeth.
Generally they last longer than the removable dentures; frequent replacement is not necessary.
What are the drawbacks of fixed prosthesis?
The only drawback is that they are little expensive as compared to removable dental prosthesis.
