People who want to fill the gaps left by missing teeth have two main options: dentures or implants. Budget aside, choosing which dental treatment that’s right for you can be confusing. Replacement teeth are important. That’s why I wholeheartedly recommend dental implants over dentures.
Dentures have many drawbacks – some quite embarrassing. Slurred speech, sucking, clicking, sliding and falling out at the dinner table are just some of the problems experienced by denture wearers. Implants offer a more secure anchor than adhesive strips, eliminating those mortifying problems associated with dentures.
Cleaning dentures is easy IF you remember to take them out and clean them with a special over-the-counter solution. Keeping your implants clean is easier. Just brush and floss as you normally would.
If you have several missing teeth, implants are your BEST replacement option. Implant-supported teeth rarely need to be replaced, other teeth don’t have to be reduced and crowned. Success rates are more than 95% for implant patients of all ages. Ideal candidates should have good oral hygiene, healthy gums and enough bone in the jaw to support the implant.
From self-confidence to physical well-being, your teeth play a significant role in your life. If missing teeth or embarrassing dentures are affecting your health and happiness, contact us for a consultation. We’ll show you how dental implants can help.
