Having tooth replacement may require you to decide which option to take, whether to go for dental implants or dentures. Several factors that will suit your preference will determine your best choice. You can involve our dentist in making the right decision for your dental health so that you can retain your smile.
What are debentures and implants?
Dental implants are one of the recent oral innovations made by dentists. Implants are permanent teeth replacements as they cannot be removed. They involve extracting the damaged tooth to drill a hole where a mental post is implanted, which serves as a root. Implants are similar to natural teeth, just that they are artificial teeth and require the same dental care.
Dentures can be removed; they can be either partial or complete teeth. They are fixed to replace lost teeth in your mouth. The dentist examines your dental formula to come up with the right set of dentures for you in the lab to ensure that they fit with the other teeth to avoid interfering with your speech and chewing.
Dental implants preserve the face and jaw bone structure, whereas dentures change the structure of the jaw bone and face as one ages. Dental implants last for a long time compared to dentures which require adjustment or replacement over time.
With dental implants, you will feel comfortable just like the natural teeth, but with dentures, you may take time before getting used to them after replacement. Dental implants are easy to maintain since you are only required to clean and floss them daily, but with dentures, you will require special treatment in terms of cleaning.
Finally, dental implants restore your chewing ability; thus, you won't stress while eating while with dentures, you have to be careful when chewing hard or sticky foodstuffs. If you have any missing teeth or need replacement, schedule an appointment with us. We offer quality service for your tooth replacement options.
