Want lower molar, front lower teeth replacement. Is there any non-invasive, non-surgical method of replacement?

i have my I lower molar of both side and front lower teeth except canines missing since 1 year when i got them extracted due to severe caries. i showed to may nearby dentist for the replacement but either they suggested me for the fixed or implant treatment. but i dont want any invasive procedure. when think of removable, its very cumbersome to adapt and adjust that initially. me confused, is there any other option available apart from this becoz i really need immediate replacement that too non invasive and non surgical. plz help

The number of missing teeth are more than what would be advised for a fixed partial denture. ideally implants would be the best solution for your problem. with newer techniques the implants are placed witha simple punch cut in which only the spots where implants have to be placed is punched out. Extraction on the other hand is a much bigger and traumatic procedure than this.
Still if you do not want implans then you have only 2 options: flexible dentures and cast partial dentures. Flexible dentures are easy to adjust but cast partials are more stable and better for the health of the remaining teeth in the long run.

Thanks for writing to us.

Since your lower molars as well as front lower teeth are missing ,you can get fixed prosthesis done by a dentist.

This is a painless procedure.

You can also get removable appliances done.

Meanwhile,get scaling as well as restoration of teeth done.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Take care.

hello and welcome to hcm,
though you are scared of fixed prosthesis, but they are very easy to adapt, but if you do not want them, then there are flexible dentures available as well, which do not take much time to adjust...
i would like to throw some light on implants also as they are available immediate loading also, so minor surgery and fixed partial denture with very good life will be in your captivity.
think the options and decide.

since the number of present teeth are less than the number of missing teeth ,option for a fixed partial denture is out of question
next possible treatment is implants but you dont intend to go for a invasive treatment
next option is removable denture ,but even that you dont want
what i would suggest is that you go for a metal based removable partial denture that will overcome your concerns of ill adaption
also other benefit is that since the base would be metal so chances of bad smell (which is very common with use of acrylic base ) of your partial denture will be less
metal base partial dentures have high rate of patient satisfaction
hope this helps

hello and welcome to hcm forum,
getting your missing teeth replaced is not at all difficult nowadays,
i would like to inform you that fixed partial denture is a better option if you are looking for immediate replacement, it is not a surgical procedure , whereas implants as you know are,
on the other hand, removable dentures require time to adjust.
therefore, its better if you go for fixed partial dentures, do not worry their success rate is very high.
kindly visit your dentist and start with your treatment soon,
i wish you good health.

Helo Dr...lookin into your case there are the same options...namely,FIXED BRIDGING ,IMPLANT OR REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURE.Only implant is invasive.Bridging is replacing the missing teeth and putting cap on the remaining teeth for support by reducing their size.Removable denture as u told is the least option.I recommend you go for a fixed bridging .The material used for the cap have options and can be selected.your dentist can help you on that.thank you.
