Dentures Vs. Implants

Posted on 12/5/2022 by Star Orthodontics
Dentures Vs. ImplantsHaving missing teeth makes a person have an unhealthy mouth. An individual with missing teeth can also suffer from low self-esteem. However, missing teeth does not mean it is the end of life. There is no point in being ashamed when there can be a solution. Several scenarios of people with missing teeth appear among younger people and the elderly. Dentures, as well as dental implants, are now the best solution to missing teeth. The confusion of choosing between the two is a common experience for many.

Are dentures or dental implants necessary?

The first question asked by individuals is whether they need dentures or implants. Before you come up with a decision to get one of the two, this is a necessary question. Confidence and missing teeth are two things that cannot be on the same page. Therefore, the answer is yes; you need dentures or implants. Missing teeth allow food to settle on the gum making it a suitable area for bacteria. Bacteria is not removable, which leads to infections. After an infection has occurred, soon, gum disease follows. This information is what shows you why tooth replacement is vital.

Are dentures suitable for you?

Dentures are detachable teeth replacements made in a partial or full set. Dentures have been available since the 19th century. Compared to dental implants, dentures are pocket friendly. Hence, if you have a tight budget, you can work with dentures. The freedom to remove them is another thing that overtakes implants that are fixed permanently. Also, for weak and unhealthy jaw, dentures are favorable.

How dental implants work

Teeth replacement is carried out when installing dental implants. The difference between implants and dentures is that implants are permanently installed. Dental implants only require once-in-a-while visits to a dentist. The implants are not hard to maintain.
