7 Reasons Dental Implants Are Better Than Dentures


Dental Implants look natural
Dental Implants are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth and blend in with your natural teeth much more easily than dentures. And there’s always the chance that they’ll fall out by accident

Protect healthy bone.

When a tooth is missing the jawbone underneath loses the support it needs and will start to deteriorate. Dentures will cover up the problem, but dental implants replace the root of the tooth, and stimulate continued bone health, so your jawbone stays strong.

Keep your teeth in your mouth – not in a cup. Implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth. And no more worrying that your dentures might slip or fall out. Brush, floss and care for teeth that have been replaced using dental implants exactly the way you would natural teeth.

Less maintenance required. Once implanted, they require less maintenance than dentures.  In fact, dentures require periodical replacements.with a lifespan of approximately five to seven years, depending on several factors.

Dentures can be more expensive long-term. Cost is a very important factor when comparing treatment options. Dental implants tend to be more costly in the short term than dentures. However, dentures aren’t as long-lasting as dental implants are. You end up buying new ones every 3-5 years. Dental  are, on most cases, a one-time investment. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.

Dental Implants Are More Convenient
Dental implants can be cleaned while still in your mouth. And you don’t have to take them out at night. Contrast them with dentures, which must be taken out for cleaning and have to be soaked overnight.

Speak and eat better.  Adjusting to removable dentures can mean struggling to pronounce everyday words. Not so with dental implants, which function like natural teeth. You can also taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. You can bite naturally, eat virtually anything you want and, unlike removable dentures that can feel uncomfortable.  Enjoy life without worrying about your teeth!
