Removable dental implants consist of two parts: the jaw frame and above are the false teeth. The jaw frame is made from plastic or metal.

At the same time, the design fits tightly around the patient’s jaw, creating a comfortable feeling when wearing. The artificial tooth is made of porcelain or plastic, attached to the frame to replace lost teeth.

Removable dental implants can be applied to cases of losing one tooth, many teeth or the entire jaw. This technique is often applied to people who are not qualified for dental implants or porcelain bridges. Besides, removable dental implants are non-invasive and especially safe for the elderly.

2. Advantages of removable dental implants?

Some advantages of removable dental implant technology include:

2.1 Removable dental implants save costs

Among today’s popular tooth restoration methods, removable dental implants have the cheapest cost. The reason is because this technique has been around for a long time and does not invade real teeth or jawbone. Dental implants with removable dentures are also relatively easy to perform, and do not require high levels of doctor expertise or machinery or equipment.

3. Disadvantages of removable dental implants?

There is no absolutely perfect method, neither is removable dental implants. Disadvantages of this form of dental restoration include:

3.1 The jawbone disappears

3.2 Limited chewing ability

Removable dental implants can only restore 30-40% of the user’s chewing ability. Food that does not come into contact with the oral mucosa reduces appetite. On the other hand, you cannot eat foods that are too hard or too chewy, causing the meal to lack variety. Finally, removable jaws easily fall when the user eats, chews or talks because there is no fixed pillar.

3.3 Low durability

Removable dental implants have relatively low durability. After a period of use, plastic removable dentures are at risk of wearing out and becoming loose. This condition is even more serious in people who have the habit of grinding their teeth. Besides, dentures can also break when biting hard, chewing hard objects or accidentally dropping them.
