Missing teeth are not something to be ashamed of. Tooth loss is common in individuals, both young and old. Whether it is due to an accident, tooth decay, gum disease, or dental fractures, missing teeth can cause health problems and overall jaw disfigurement.
Those people missing sets of teeth rather than just one or two might be considering Dentures.
Dentures are removable and cost less than implants. However, they are not for everyone.
If not secured properly, they can slip out of place while eating or speaking, and if not fitted properly, dentures can also lead to infection and bone degradation.
Dental Implants are permanent teeth replacements. They last longer and save you money over time. With good oral hygiene, dental implants can last for 20 years or more without the need for replacement.
Although Dental Implants are the preferred solution, they require healthy bone as a foundation.
While weighing out your options, it is always a good idea to talk to your dentist.
At Sbenati Dentistry, our staff is happy to answer any of your questions, and they can help you decide if dental implants or dentures are right for you.
