What Is the Difference Between Dentures and Dental Implants?
Posted on 10/25/2021 by Ronald Watkins
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, around 178 million Americans have more than one missing tooth. This can stop one from laughing and affect your overall confidence. To help properly restore your smile, we recommend dental procedures, such as getting a dental implant or dentures. At our dental clinic, our team of professionals will examine your teeth to determine the best procedure between the two to treat your condition.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a type of removable false teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures, which are partial and complete. Our dentists will fit you with a partial denture if you want to replace a few teeth on the upper or lower jaw. We suggest a complete denture for patients who need to replace all the upper or lower jaw teeth. Dentures are easy to maintain by brushing daily and storing them in water during the night.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a metal post that our dentist place into your jawbone to act as a tooth root. As the jawbone heals, the implant fuses with the gum tissue to provide support for artificial teeth. Dental implants have a lot of benefits, including improving your jaw structure and smile. At our clinic, we make the implants look and feel as natural as possible. We recommend dental implants for a more permanent solution to missing teeth compared to dentures. With proper oral care like flossing and brushing twice a day, your dental implants can last years.
Dental implants and dentures are both procedures we use to restore your smile. However, implants can be more costly than dentures. If you have any missing teeth that need replacing, feel free to visit us at our dental clinic. Please do not hesitate to contact us now to book your appointment with us today.
