A Dental Guide for Choosing to Use Teeth Implants or Dentures

If you need to replace missing teeth but are unsure of whether teeth implants or dentures are the best choice for you, use this helpful guide to help you make the right decision.

Straight Talk about Teeth Implants

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically embedded into the jawbone to replace the roots of teeth. The implant soon bonds to the jawbone to create a strong, stable foundation to attach a replacement tooth or teeth. Implants dentistry has become extremely popular because it offers so many benefits, such as:

  • The look, feel, and function of natural teeth
  • Preserving the jawbone
  • Preventing gum tissue from diminishing, which reduces the risk of losing additional teeth
  • Easy to maintain with regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental care
  • They won’t slip, slide, or shift since they’re permanently positioned in place
  • Comfortable eating and chewing, which allows for proper nutrition
  • Helps keep adjacent teeth from moving over time
  • Long-lasting, with many still strong after more than 20 years

The Deal on Dentures

Dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and some gum tissue. If you opt for complete or full dentures, they will replace all of the teeth in the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or in both jaws. But partial dentures will only replace a small section of teeth while your others will remain. While dentures have been used for decades, the rise of implants dentistry has diminished their use for the following reasons:

  • They are less natural-looking than teeth implants
  • They must be regularly removed and cleaned
  • They need to be left out of the mouth overnight
  • They are prone to slipping
  • It takes time to get comfortable eating and speaking with them
  • They can limit the foods that can be eaten, impeding healthy nutrition
  • They are very fragile and prone to breaking
  • They must be replaced every three to six years

Final Factors to Consider

It’s easy to see why teeth implants may be more desirable than dentures, but there are other things to consider before making your final choice. If cost is a concern, dentures are the less costly treatment, but they don’t offer as many advantages. Luckily, it’s possible to get affordable dental implants because many dentists offer special financing to provide patients with more affordable dental implants. Other factors in your decision should be your health history, current health, case complexity, personal preference, and your dentist’s recommendation.
