Benefits of Dental Implants - Is it worth choosing It? (Part 2)

Benefits of Dental Implants – Is it worth choosing It? (Part 2)

There are significant benefits of dental implants you may not know about it.

In the first part of the article, we talked about the benefits of dental implants in general, suggesting that this is a much better solution to replace missing teeth than a traditional removable prosthesis. We also talked about the benefits of implants over conventional prostheses. Finally, we learned a lot about two-phase implants and implantation methods. In this section, we will focus on one-phase immediate loading implants.

When we discuss the benefits of dental implants and compare the two standard implantation methods, we find almost as much difference as between implantation and traditional removable dentures. Although both types of implants serve the same purpose in terms of end-use, there are huge differences between implants and implantation methods.

In the first part, we discussed the advantages of two-phase implants over traditional removable dentures; now, let’s look at the one-phase implants, that also called immediate loading implants. These implants have many benefits that are not typical of either the removable prosthesis or two-phase implant-based dentures. Let’s look at some of these.

Perhaps the most significant advantage of one-phase implants is that the dentures made with these implants are complete in a short time. An oral rehabilitation, which consists of entire lower and upper dentures, only needs to appear 4 times or so in the dental office. The 4th time is just for checking and making minor refinements and adjustments if required.

Another essential advantage of a one-phase implant is that it is usable in patients for whom a two-phase implant is out of the question due to poor bone quality or significant bone deficiency. A one-phase implant is to secure the denture in case of bone deficiency firmly. Another critical difference is that immediate loading implants are made in many different shapes and forms to choose the most suitable one for the respective bone condition.

Among the benefits of dental implants (one-phase), we have to mention the implantation itself. While two-phase implant implantation means a more serious oral surgery, one-phase implantation is much easier and simpler. For example, it is not necessary to incise the entire gum, implant the so-called healing screws, then re-suture the incised gum. And when 4 to 6 months ossification time is up, the surgeon incises the gum again, removes the healing screws to continue the implantation process.

In this two-part article, we briefly summarized the benefits of dental implants, comparing the two primary teeth replacement methods as traditional adhesive dentures and implant-fixed dentures. We have demonstrated several huge differences between the two types of dentures in favor of implants.

The benefits of dental implants have their disadvantage, which we didn’t talk about is so far. And it is their price, which is relatively high. Relatively, if we consider the problems with adhesive dentures and the extra costs, we realize that they are not so expensive. What you save on the cost of implant dentures, you pay for the costs of going to the dentist repeatedly over time. All in all, the value of money for implant-based dentures is much better!
