Dental Implants vs Dentures in Greenwood Village, CO
Perhaps the most versatile treatment tools for
. Greenwood Village patients can use them to replace either a single tooth or multiple. In fact, many patients with dentures eventually switch to dental implants and report positive results. This is because with
, greenwood village patients are getting sturdier, more comfortable replacements than with dentures. Dentures often slip out of place and cause difficulty eating and speaking. They can also make embarrassing clicking sounds. In addition, there are certain health concerns that come along with dentures, such as bone and tissue deterioration. With dental implants, Greenwood patients do not need to worry about any of this.
While there are clear benefits to both dentures and dental implants, Greenwood Village patients are more likely to find happiness with implants for the following reasons:
They are made from titanium, which is naturally compatible with the body. Dentures are made from plastics and cast metal, which cause irritation and discomfort.
Dental implants are equally as stable as natural teeth. They cannot be removed without additional surgery. Dentures, however, simply rest on top of the gums and are prone to slippage.
They can be used to replace any number of missing teeth. This includes one, few, or many. Dentures, however, can only be used to replace multiple missing teeth.
Dental implants are a more feasible long term option. With proper care and maintenance, they can last an entire lifetime. Dentures need to be replaced every five to seven years, which becomes quite costly over time.
They help to preserve the jawbone and soft tissue. Dentures do not.
By choosing dental implants, Greenwood Village patients are giving themselves a more comfortable and
long term solution for tooth replacement
. While both options are effective and have their own merits, dental implants clearly provide more stability and a higher functionality.
