The Best Implants vs. the Best Dentures

dca-blog-525-Dentures_1200x630

No one is ever happy about tooth loss. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth or every natural tooth in your mouth, the effect on your confidence and your ability to eat and speak normally can be dramatic. For decades, missing teeth were routinely replaced by complete or partial dentures. While dental dentures certainly have their disadvantages, they have improved the lives of many people over the years. Today’s advanced dentistry offers new and better options like dental implants. However, they may not be right for everyone. Before choosing between the two, it’s important to take a closer look.

When to Replace Teeth with the Best Dentures

Affordable quality dentures are available in various types. Partial dentures are called for when several teeth are missing from either side of the jaw. They can be removed for cleaning or overnight storage. Partial dentures depend on remaining natural teeth for support. When every tooth on the lower or upper jaw is missing, full dentures are used. Complete dentures replace all teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. Dentures have been available for many years, and they are still used regularly today. However, many denture wearers are not satisfied with their diminished ability to taste foods, or other common problems associated with dental dentures including mouth sores and clicking noises.

When to Replace Teeth with Dental Implants

When you consider functionality, appearance, and convenience, even the best dentures can’t compete with dental implants. The implant device looks similar to a screw and is made from titanium. It is surgically placed into the jawbone, then topped with a natural-looking crown. As implants heal, they bond with the jaw, which prevents bone loss in the area. Implants are inherently versatile; some are used as anchors for bridges and even dental dentures.

How to Decide between Implants and Affordable Quality Dentures

Complete removable dentures may be the best option for those who can’t afford implants or have poor bone density. Implant-supported dentures are more stable and present fewer problems with comfort and diminished taste. Ultimately, the decision to choose either option is up to you with a lot of input from your dentist or prosthodontist. For the best results, consult a dentist who has surgical implant experience to discuss whether implants or affordable quality dentures would be the right fit for you.
