What are the alternatives to dental implants
Removable prostheses options
Lamellar dentures are a more affordable alternative to implants. They require little maintenance and can be used to replace one or more lost teeth. Of course, it should be noted that such prostheses are inconvenient to use, can induce allergies, and can cause diction problems. However, acrylic products are reasonably priced.
Dentures made of polyurethane or nylon that are flexible. These dental constructions are light and soft. They are safe for teeth and gums. Elastic hooks or the suction effect are used to secure dentures. It’s also critical that nylon and polyurethane products are safe and have excellent standards of hygiene and natural attractiveness.
Prosthetics with clasps. Patients with periodontal disease, a frequent condition today, are advised to use such products. The sturdy frame protects the teeth from further loosening.
