Implants are today’s gold standard for tooth replacement. But compared to tried-and-true dentures, what advantages do they have over a removable prosthesis?
There are several options to help improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Dentures, for example, can replace missing teeth and help restore a patient’s smile. They also make it easier to eat and speak. However, dentures have to be removed and are often loose and don’t fit right. Implant-supported dentures are more permanent and secure. By combining the aesthetic benefits of dentures with the health advantages of dental implants, implant-supported dentures can beautifully restore an entire arch of teeth.
A dental implant and the restoration that attaches to it provides a permanent and fixed solution to replace a missing tooth.
Implant-supported dentures are long lasting, don’t affect any surrounding teeth, and look and feel natural. You can even replace all your missing teeth in a single arch with permanent implants, rather than a removable denture. Placed by an experienced periodontist, dental implants have a 98 percent success rate and can last you your lifetime with proper care.
A denture is an acrylic appliance that looks like teeth, and it stays in place by resting on the bone ridge. They are the fastest and most economical way to restore your smile but will require maintenance and replacement over time.
