Not only can it be emotional when you’re dealing with dental health issues, but it can be overwhelming to make the right choice. We are also happy to help any patient who has a current tooth replacement option, such as dentures, and is looking for a more permanent solution. We often see patients who are frustrated with the discomfort from their dentures, the fact that they slip, and the difficulty they experience when eating. One treatment we often recommend to our patients who are looking for an alternative to dentures is dental implants. Continue reading to learn about this remarkable treatment and why it can be more beneficial than other options.
Benefits of Dental Implants Over Dentures
When patients visit our office and are frustrated with the negative effects of dentures such as discomfort and eating issues, we are happy to recommend an alternative treatment that can restore their oral health. We commonly recommend dental implants to our patients when they are looking to move away from dentures. Dental implants provide a fixed base for replacement teeth. Over time, the prosthesis fuses with the jawbone to create a permanent and lasting solution. Once you have healed, the process is completed with a replacement tooth structure, such as a dental crown or even an implant-supported denture.
Patients love that dental implants closely resemble their natural teeth. Implants are a permanent fixture in your mouth and eliminate problems such as slipping and hardware that can break. Dental implants can easily last for the rest of your life if cared for properly.
Patients are also thrilled that there are no food restrictions with dental implants. Patients who wear dentures or have experienced tooth loss often have difficulty chewing certain foods and find themselves eliminating foods from their diet or changing the way they eat. Since dental implants function in the same way as natural teeth, there are not those challenges.
