Are You Choosing Between Dental Implants and Dentures?

Thinking about getting dental implants and would like a little more information on this dental procedure? Maybe dentures are going to work better for your particular situation? There are definitely a few differences between getting implants and getting dentures. Thus, the fact that you are looking to understand these differences means that you want to make sure that you choose the best option for you.

While it is beneficial to research your options when you are in need of dental work, know that we are the ones who will help make the final decision on whether implants or dentures are going to be your best choice.

Dental implants

Many patients are choosing dental implants nowadays instead of traditional dentures. The reason for the implant placement is to create an artificial tooth root, which works in the same way as a natural tooth root.

These artificial tooth roots connect dentures to them so that the dentures never move, while also fusing into the jaw for a stronger jawbone. Advantages of implants include helping to preserve the overall structure of the jawbone and creating a more stable fit than traditional dentures.

Traditional dentures

Traditional dentures are still a popular choice amongst dental patients. When a patient is not able to qualify for the dental implant procedure, they are still able to choose traditional dentures. The fact that there are different types of traditional dentures makes it a good idea for patients to make a consultation appointment.

During the appointment, they will be able to fully understand their options and determine an effective choice.  Advantages of traditional dentures include replacing any missing teeth that can improve a patient’s overall oral health and create the appearance of a full smile.

Choosing between the two

In order to choose the best option between implants and dentures, the patient needs to understand why implants or dentures are necessary. For example, a patient who only has one or two missing teeth is going to have different requirements instead of a patient who has multiple, most or even all of their teeth missing.
