Dentures vs Dental Implants
Full-Arch Tooth Replacement with Beautiful Dentures or Stable Dental Implants
Are Your Dentures Causing You Problems or Frustrations?
Traditional removable dentures are one of the most common forms of tooth replacement for complete tooth loss (edentulism). While these are an affordable and effective solution to restoring function to your mouth, some denture-wearers experience troubles, such as dentures slipping or falling out, embarrassing clicking or popping noises, or even the diminished ability to taste or eat foods. Many of our patients are looking into a state-of-the-art alternative to dentures in the form of dental implant supported dentures. Here, we can firmly attach your own denture to implants in order to give you a more stable and stronger bite.
Differences Between Dentures and Implant Supported Dentures
No matter which option you choose depending on your unique needs, dentures and dental implants are excellent when deciding to replace your missing teeth. Both provide many benefits depending on your lifestyle and grant a sense of normalcy to your life.
Traditional Removable Dentures
- Initial affordability
- Easily removable
- Rests on gums, causing jaw bone loss
- Requires replacement every few years
- Often temporary devices while waiting for dental implant placement
