Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Your Options for Missing Teeth
Dental Implants are the modern day solution to missing teeth. Dentures have progressed a long way since ivory prosthetics, but many people with missing teeth are still looking for a better solution.
The most traditional way to solve the problem of missing teeth is to use dentures. In the distant past, dentures have been made from ivory, bone, and porcelain. Although modern plastics allow us to provide dentures that are a little more comfortable, many patients still complain from denture pain, especially those patients with a full set of lower dentures.
Other considerations make dentures a poor solution to missing teeth. Modern technology allows for an accurate fitting of dentures for each individuals mouth. Even with such advances, there is still a problem of denture slippage and discomfort.
If you are missing teeth, you want a solution that is as close to your natural teeth as possible. That is why dental implants are the best alternative to dentures.
Dental implants are very strong because of the method of placement. There is no problem with slippage, which means that you can eat and speak with comfort and confidence.
Looking at a smile with dental implants is like looking at a smile with natural teeth.
