Advantages of Implants
They are easy to care for and the next best solution to your natural teeth: A properly placed dental implant is as close to a natural tooth as you can get. It looks and feels like a natural tooth. They are cared for similarly to natural teeth with a tooth brush and floss.
Dental implants preserve healthy bone and protect other teeth and reduce the likelihood of further bone loss. Dental implants are the only restoration option that preserves and stimulates bone growth and eliminating bone loss. Eliminating a tooth without placing an implant could cause further bone loss and potentially increase the chances that healthy teeth could become compromised.
Dental implants do not need to be removed from your mouth – no more teeth in a jar. Dental implants allow you to function normally as if you had your normal teeth. You can sleep with them in and do not need to clean them overnight in a jar.
They are secure – no worry about implants falling out or slipping out of place. Dental implants are secured into your preserved bone and do not move. You do not have to worry about awkward social experiences where your teeth begin to move.
Dental implants do not impact your speech. Adjusting to removable dentures can negatively impact your speech. Secure dental implants allow you to speak normally without worrying about difficult pronunciations.
Dental implants can last a lifetime. Where dental bridges can break easily or wear over five to seven years, dental implants can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for.
Advantages of Dentures
Dentures are less costly
Dentures can be a bridge treatment to implants if the patient is unsure although waiting too long can impact bone structure which could make the process more complexed or unachievable.
The process is non-evasive and does not require surgery
Dentures can be modified for additional tooth loss
