Full Mouth Dental Implants Vs Dentures
Earlier when a Removable Complete Denture was the only replacement treatment option in case of complete absence of teeth, Implant supported full bridge or implant supported full dentures have now been a very common, fixed and easy solution.
Here are the reasons why you should choose implants over dentures for the replacement of your missing teeth.
- Functionality – Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. Since they are placed inside your jawbone, they are better in function as they act just like your natural teeth. They don’t become loose or slip while talking or eating which can happen in case of a removable denture.
- Long Lasting – Dental Implants can last a lifetime. They don’t need to be replaced like dentures. Dentures wear off after 8-10 years and they need to be replaced. Dental Implants once placed inside your jawbone doesn’t need to be replaced or changed.
- Better looking – When it comes to looks, Dental implant supported teeth look more natural and appealing rather than dentures.
- Comfort – Dental Implant supported teeth are more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures, allowing you to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity. Since Dental implants are integrated into the bone, they provide more support and stability to the bridge/denture fixed to it. Hence providing you with the freedom to eat any kind of food you want as well as giving you a pleasant smile. With Removable dentures you won’t be able to enjoy all kinds of food that you want.
