Benefits Of Implants Over Dentures

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Dr. Chad Rebhun
Benefits Of Implants Over DenturesFor decades, dentures have been used as the preferred replacement option for missing or weakening teeth. However, developments in dentistry have meant that dental implants have risen in popularity as they are a more permanent solution to the age-old problem of tooth loss. Find out the benefits that dental implants have over dentures.

What are dental implants

Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that are implanted into your jawbone to act as a replacement to missing or weakening teeth. Once the implant has fully healed, our team may restore your implants and even top it up with crowns.

Dental implants offer a permanent foundation to enable you to have a natural-feeling crown. In addition, they can be used to greatly improve support and stability when compared to dentures.

Why dental implants are the best option for teeth restoration

Dental implants closely resemble real teeth in terms of their function, feel and appearance. The implants are surgically placed into your jaw, meaning they fuse together with your jawbone and act just like real teeth would.

Another advantage is that dental implants have a high success rate, typically over 90% of the time. They are also long-term compared to dentures. Dental implants prevent your jawbone from resorbing, as would be the case if you did not replace the missing teeth. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that achieve this bone preserving function.

Dental implants are not harmful to the neighbouring teeth, compared to traditional bridge therapy. Unfortunately, a dental bridge usually involves the trimming down of neighbouring teeth in order to give support to the bridge. This wearing down of teeth increases the chances of tooth decay or the need for root canal treatment in the future.

Lastly, dental implants can last you a lifetime. This covers up for the fact that they require a higher amount of time and money in order to accomplish. This is, however, a small price to pay for natural feeling teeth that last a lifetime. Contact us to book your procedure today!
