Dentures vs. Dental Implants: Which Is Right for You?

Missing teeth doesn’t mean you can’t have a winning smile. Individuals who have lost one or more teeth now have several options to restore their smiles and return their ability to eat and speak with ease. Depending on your dental needs, your dentist can provide either denture or dental implant solutions. Both offer numerous advantages for those who have missing teeth due to trauma or disease.

Dentures
Dentures are a great option for individuals who have lost one, a few, or even all of their teeth. Partial dentures can blend in easily with a patient’s teeth, and complete dentures can replicate a full set of natural teeth. Dentures can be issued either immediately following a tooth extraction procedure or in the ensuing weeks. In either case, the patient does not have to wait an extended period of time for treatment. Prospective patients should note that dentures require daily care to ensure their continued ability to approximate natural teeth. Some individuals may also find that it takes a few weeks to adjust to wearing dentures while eating or speaking.

Dental Implants
Dental implants can be an ideal solution for individuals who want a permanent remedy to their lost teeth. Like dentures, dental implants can also be used in the event that a patient loses only a single tooth or several of them. Because implants are inserted into the jawbone, patients may find that the entire dental implant process requires several months to allow the bone to heal and solidify with the implants. Once the dental implants are in place, individuals need only take care of them as they would their natural teeth. If they are properly maintained, dental implants can last several decades.
