In my opinion, dental implants are better than dentures. It will appear as more natural and it will protect the bone. You don’t need to worry about your teeth and you can eat anything you want. If you use dentures, then there might be chances for difficulty in speaking. Dental implants are long lasting.
First of all, you should find out the exact cause of your problem. why did you consider bone augmentation surgery? Is it for your gum disease? or because of any tooth development defect or dental procedure defect? This cause will influence the relieving period. The pain is normal after the bone augmentation surgery. Use a cold pack or ice bag to reduce the pain and swellings and rinse with warm salt water.Are you a smoker? Smoking will adversely affect the healing period. Better you discuss your problem with your own dentist. Changing the dentist or treatment method will not be a good idea.
It is better to discuss this with your dentist before taking a decision. Dental implants should be considered on the basis of your requirements. A licensed dental specialist can help you to choose long lasting natural looking implants. Select the one which is safe for adjacent natural teeth and which is able to prevent bone loss. All the best.
