If you’re having to deal with one missing tooth or even several missing teeth, the question you may be asking yourself is: are implants or dentures the best solution for me?
Our Oral Health is extremely important, so if someone is missing several teeth or even missing one tooth; it can severely impact your overall health and well-being. At Changing Smiles, the question of the benefits of dentures vs. implants ultimately comes down to you: The patient.
Advantages of Dentures
Dentures come in an array of varying types depending on what the patient needs. Whether they are cosmetic dentures to provide a patient with a more youthful smile, or partial dentures to provide not just confidence but saving the patient’s remaining teeth. The advantage of dentures in their various forms would also be to improve quality of life as far as speech and the way one chews food. Without dentures or partial dentures, one may suffer in their simple daily activities. Consulting with one of our dental experts could better determine which denture solution would benefit a patient the most.
Implants or Implant Retained Dentures
Implants, or Implant Retained Dentures, will hold a new implant tooth in place to act as a natural tooth would. The implant would serve as a natural part of your jaw bone and when biting into food, speaking, or smiling; one could go about their daily activities without pain and maintain confidence in their everyday life. Implant Specialists at Changing Smiles would help a patient decide what type of implant would best suit them and their lifestyle.
Patient's Oral Health
Ultimately, a patient’s needs are what come first when deciding whether dentures or implants are more suitable. Every patient’s oral health is different and through an appointment to consult with one of our dental or implant specialists at Changing Smiles, we can determine what the patient’s main concerns are.
