Dentures tend to be faster, cheaper, and less-invasive than implants. So why should you consider getting implants instead of a denture? Here are six reasons.
Implants are secured to your jaw with “screws” that your bone tissue heals around. This creates a stronger and more secure bite than traditional dentures which merely rest on top of the gums.
Once implants fuse with your jawbone, they never have to come out. Getting implants is a one-time process. Dentures, however, need to be relined, repaired, and replaced over time.
Dentures carry the potential for embarrassing slips and garbled speech. But implants are so much more natural that no one ever has to know they aren’t real teeth.
The strong hold implants have on your jaw allows you to eat things like corn-on-the-cob, whole apples, and steaks—things most dentures can’t handle.
There are no denture brushes or soaking solutions with full-mouth dental implants. If you have implants permanently fixed to your jaw, you only need to brush and floss them like normal teeth.
Dental implants promote the growth of new bone tissue in your jaw. This maintains the shape of your face and keeps it looking youthful. Dentures, on the other hand, press on your jawbone through the gums and cause it to shrink over time.
Are you a candidate for full-mouth dental implants? Contact your local implant dentist to set up a consultation.
