Dentures or Dental Implants – Understanding Your Tooth Replacement Options

dca-blog_dental-implant-man-with-picture

Almost 70% of adults between the ages of 35 to 44 are missing at least one tooth as a result of serious gum disease, tooth decay, and injuries or accidents. However, dental implants or dentures can be great solutions for tooth loss. Be sure to carefully consider your budget, health, and lifestyle when choosing between the benefits of affordable quality dentures and dental implants.

What Are the Advantages of Dentures?

Affordable quality dentures have greatly improved over the past few decades. If your jawbone is unhealthy, or you have extensive gum disease, full or partial dentures may be your best choice. Conventional dentures are placed about three months after natural teeth have been removed. Dentures offer these benefits:

  • Dentures are often covered by dental insurance
  • Dentures can be easily adjusted if necessary
  • Dentures are safe for those with unstable jaws or other medical conditions
  • There is no risk of surgical complications

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacements for the root of a missing tooth, so if your gums and jawbone are healthy, dental implants may be your best option. Cared for properly, dental implants can last more than 20 years. People with certain medical conditions are not good implant candidates; your dentist in Munster can determine if you’re a candidate. Dental implants offer the following benefits:

  • Dental implants have a 98% success rate
  • Dental implants are more comfortable than removable dentures
  • Implants look and function more like natural teeth
  • Dental implants won’t affect your speech, slide during eating, or make clicking sounds
  • There is no need for adhesives or soaking

To find out more about affordable quality dentures and dental implants options, talk to your dentist. Schedule an appointment today, so you and your dental team can start working on your new smile.
