Affordable Quality Dentures or Superior Implants – Which One Is Best for You?

dca-blog-525-Dentures_1200x630

Whether you have lost a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth, tooth loss can have a devastating effect on your life. Your ability to smile with confidence is gone. You may not be able to speak as clearly as before, and you probably can’t enjoy many of your favorite foods. In the past, dentures and partial dentures were the only options available for replacing missing teeth. Today’s dental technology offers highly functional and natural-looking choices like dental implants. A variety of factors should be considered when comparing the two options.

Replacing Teeth with the Best Dentures

Several types of affordable quality dentures are available to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures are recommended when several teeth are missing in either side of the jaw. They are removable for cleaning or overnight storage. Partial dentures rely on remaining natural teeth for support. Full dental dentures are used when every tooth on the lower or upper jaw is missing. Complete dentures replace all teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. Dental dentures have been available for many years, and they are still used regularly today. However, many denture wearers are not happy with their lost ability to taste foods properly or other common problems associated with dental dentures such as mouth sores and clicking noises.

Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants

When it comes to appearance, convenience, and functionality, even the best dentures can’t compete with dental implants. The implant device is made from titanium and looks similar to a screw. It is surgically placed into the jawbone where it is 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.

Deciding Between Implants and Affordable Quality Dentures

Complete removable dentures are still a viable treatment option for those who can’t afford the higher cost of implants or have medical problems that would interfere with their placement. However, implant-supported dentures are more stable and present fewer problems with comfort and diminished taste. Ultimately, the decision to choose either option is between you and your dentist or prosthodontist. For the best results, consult a dentist who has surgical implant experience.
