The Advantages of Dental Implants vs. Dentures

Dental Implants

If you’re thinking about replacing missing teeth, your dentist in Atlanta may recommend dental implants. In certain cases, these small dental appliances inserted into the upper or lower jaw may be a more appropriate solution than dentures. It really depends on your health, your lifestyle, and the problem that needs to be fixed.

People with loose or poor-fitting dentures because of flat ridges, or those missing multiple teeth who need support for crowns and bridges, are the most likely candidates for implants. For patients who meet the criteria, dental implants offer a number of advantages over dentures. Aside from feeling more natural than dentures, implants offer an alternative for those whose dentures are loose or poorly fitting. Dental implants can reduce the movement of bridges, crowns, and dentures, as well as provide support for removable dentures and bridgework. And, like dentures, dental implants improve your speech and appearance, promoting greater self-confidence.

To receive dental implants, the ideal candidate must be in good overall health and have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. If a patient has health conditions that would impact healing, an implant may not be the best choice. Heavy smoking or drinking may also preclude implants. The patient must be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and willing to make repeat visits to the dentist. In general, dental implants are safe for those who pass the initial screening.

There are two types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. The endosteal implant, the most common type, is inserted into the jawbone to serve as the tooth’s root. For those who can no longer wear conventional dentures, the second type, subperiosteal dental implants, are a lightweight option designed to fit directly on the existing bone. Both options are typically made of metals like titanium, which are biologically compatible materials, to avoid the antigen-antibody response that sometimes leads to rejection in heart and kidney transplants.

Your dentist in Atlanta will provide the dental implants cost and other information to help you make the right decision based on your circumstances.
