The Use Of Dentures After Extraction?
Hi., 2 molars have to be removed. Can it be replaced with dentures other than dental implants? As is well known dental implants are very expensive. Is there another way? thank you
Hello Teguh, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Tooth extracted should indeed be replaced with dentures to prevent interference with eating and speech functions, and there is no shift in other teeth that can cause tooth malocclusion (interference with the closure of the upper and lower teeth). Implants are one of the most commonly used techniques for replacing extracted teeth because of their strong and durable properties. However, if you do not want to have dental implants inserted for one reason or another, there are several alternatives available:
Dental bridges. Resin-bonded bridge partial dentures (for front teeth only) Complete dentures (when all the teeth are removed, usually in the elderly). In your case, a dental bridge or partial denture may be possible. Neither will last as long as the implant, so in a few years it will require replacement. Installation of a bridge also has limitations, for example it can only be done if there are 2 strong teeth between 1 missing tooth.
We recommend that you consult again to the dentist who treats your teeth. You can ask directly about the available alternatives to replace your extracted tooth.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
