    Do most people prefer dentures over dental implants do to the cost and time it takes to implant teeth in your mouth?

      It depends upon the condition of the patient... Dentures are always a good option, and less painful..
      Dental implants can be painfull, but if the situation demands, they are needed....to be done asap.

        I've experienced dental implants after the operation, I feel no pain.
        after the pain reliever gone, my gums were so painful in the first week.

    I think it would have to depend on how many teeth you have to have implanted.  My friend just had the first steps for an implant done. But it's a back tooth and dentures in her case wouldn't be the answer for one tooth in the back.

    Hi Melody.  True if your only replacing a tooth or two, then implants would be the answer instead of dentures.  So I guess it just depends on the individual's needs at the time.  Every case woud be different.  Thank you for your answer.

      No problem.  I know my friend was surprised how easy the first step was. But it does cost a lot.  I think it will be about $4000 total for the one implant.  She's got some dental insurance, but it only pays a few hundred dollars.

    A local hospital in Thailand will give you an implant for between thirty and one hundred dollars.

    Are they any good?

    I know several people with dentures and they're very happy with them and have been for years. The reason a whole mouthful of implants could be better may be to give your jawbone something to stay attached to since the jaw shrinks without teeth in it. But I can't imagine anyone being able to afford it and there may be other reasons not to do so many implants that I don't know about.

    I have heard that dental implants are more painful than getting dentures.   I agree with you that it also depends on the condition of the patients mouth.  Every situation is different.  I appreciate your insight and for responding to this forum.  Thank you.

    I have just had a dental implant (hubbed about it) and it was the upper frontal right incisor. I can't say the work to have it done hurt at all, and although it was pricey, I know it could have been done equally well for a tiny fraction of the price if I had been willing to travel to Thailand or somewhere similar. I hated the temporary denture I had to wear until my mouth had healed enough for the implant to be done, so I am a big fan of dental implants as a result.

    It all depends on the patient.  Typically dental implants are the way to go all the way around.  They can help prevent the jaw bone from shrinking (which could cause more teeth to fall out).  Implants are also cheaper in the long run.  Once the implant, abutment, and crown are placed, that's it for cost.  Dentures need to be relined, adjusted, or even remade, which can get very expensive.  Implants can provide a nearly permanent solution to missing teeth.  The cost is higher at first, but definitely well worth the money.  And, many doctors can place the implant the same day a tooth is extracted, as opposed to having to wait for a denture to come back from a lab (not to mention the other fitting appointments).  Implants really are the best option if possible.

    It depends on the preference and needs of a person. Others would like to have dentures but as we know they are temporary so they are also called immediate dentures However for people who would like dental implant this is a major consideration and is quite expensive unlike dentures which is cheaper.

    For those people who might want to have a clearer options try designerdentures.com.au just to give you an idea which is best.
