Face the Facts about Teeth Implants vs. Dentures

If you’re struggling with missing teeth, your decision to replace them with either teeth implants or dentures shouldn’t also be a struggle. Use this valuable guide to help you choose which kind to use.

What You Need to Know about Teeth Implants

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically embedded directly into the jawbone to replace the natural roots of teeth. Once embedded, the implant begins to bond with the jawbone to form a permanent base for a replacement tooth or teeth. Implants dentistry has become extremely popular among both patients and dentists because it offers so many benefits, including:

  • The same look, feel, and function of natural teeth
  • Easy to keep clean and maintain with regular brushing, flossing, and professional check-ups and cleanings
  • Won’t slide or shift because they’re permanently positioned in place
  • Comfortable eating and chewing, which allows for proper nutrition
  • Help keeping adjacent teeth from moving over time
  • Preventing gum tissue from diminishing, which reduces the risk of losing additional teeth
  • Preserving the jawbone
  • Very long-lasting, with many remaining strong after more than 20 years

What You should Realize about Dentures

Dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and some gum tissue. If you opt for complete or full dentures, they will replace all of the teeth in the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or in both jaws. But partial dentures will only replace a small section of teeth while your others will remain. While dentures have been used for decades, the rise of implants dentistry has diminished the use of dentures for these reasons:

  • Looks and feels less natural than teeth implants
  • Requires regular removal and cleaning
  • Takes time to get comfortable eating and speaking
  • Prone to shifting and slipping
  • Need to be left out of the mouth overnight
  • Limits the foods that can be eaten, which prevent complete nutrition
  • Very fragile and prone to breaking
  • Must be replaced every three to six years

What Else You Need to Consider

While teeth implants offer more advantages than dentures, it’s dental and personal factors you need to consider before making your final decision. If cost is a concern, dentures are the less costly treatment, but they don’t offer as many advantages. Luckily, it’s possible to get affordable dental implants because many dentists offer special financing to provide patients with more affordable dental implants. Other factors that will affect your decision should be your health history, current health, case complexity, personal preference, and your dentist’s recommendation.
