For many years, dentures have been the standard solution for missing teeth, but as dentistry advances, dental implants have been increasingly popular due to its many benefits over dentures.
- Greater Comfort
Dentures rest on your gums, putting pressure on them, and as a result, you can be left with discomfort and denture sores. With dental implants, your teeth are supported by the titanium post in your jaw, keeping pressure off your gums.
Dental implants also provide a far greater biting force than dentures, allowing you to eat without having to worry about dislodging your teeth in the middle of a meal. Eating a wide variety of different foods improves your general health and nutritional intake.
- Prevents bone loss
When you lose your teeth, the jaw bone in the empty space deteriorates due to lack of stimulation. Well-fitting dentures may delay bone loss, but it doesn't halt it from occurring. This is why many people who wear dentures notice that their face seems to age more quickly than average or even sag. A dental implant replaces the tooth's root, and chewing is restored to normal. It provides the needed stimulation for natural bone growth.
- Easy care
One of the greatest complaints about dentures is that they take a lot of effort to maintain. They need to be removed from the mouth for cleaning and soaked overnight while sleeping. On the other hand, dental implants are much easier to maintain as you can brush and floss like normal. With dental implants, you also don't need denture paste or adhesives.
Dentures need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years, whereas dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Imagine never having to stress about your missing teeth ever again.
Dental implants are also much less likely to break or chip as they are made from titanium, which is stronger than the synthetic plastic resins or porcelain used to construct dentures.
You may think, how can something that cost thousands of dollars be cost-effective? The answer lies in the longevity and durability of dental implants compared to dentures. As mentioned above, dental implants may last a lifetime, whereas dentures need to be replaced after some years. You may initially pay more with dental implants, but you'll actually save more money in the long run.
- Better Stability
Dentures are known for coming loose and slipping out of place. This can create embarrassing situations when eating, speaking, or even just smiling. You can say goodbye to those awkward, uncomfortable situations with dental implants as they are permanently fixed in place. It won't slip around, come loose, or fall out so you can eat, talk, and smile confidently.
