Dentures vs. Dental Implants
When you need to replace your missing teeth, you have a few options to consider: bridges, dentures, partials, and dental implants.
Dentures are fast and affordable. Whether you opt for a full or partial design, it can replace all of your missing teeth with one, removable prosthesis.
However, dentures can take a lot of time to adjust to. You’ll need to practice speaking and eating with them. Even then, you’ll find that you need to cut your food into smaller pieces and opt for softer textures since you won’t have as strong of biting and chewing forces as you used to.
Dental Implant Options
With dental implants, you’re essentially replacing your missing teeth with the most durable alternative. In fact, implants are stronger than your natural smile. They’re made to mimic the design and function of natural teeth. An implant can support an individual crown or be used in pairs to anchor multi-tooth dental restorations including dentures.
Compared to other types of tooth replacement treatments, implants outlast and outperforms other common procedures. When cared for properly (just brush and floss them like natural teeth,) an implant can last the rest of your life if well looked after.
