Missing teeth don’t have to keep you down any longer! While traditional dentures work great at restoring your bite and your smile, dental implants offer you some distinct benefits, including:
- Stability: Dental implants are securely anchored to the jawbone, which makes them more stable than dentures that can slip or shift while eating or speaking.
- Durability: Dental implants can last for many years, even a lifetime, with proper care, while dentures will need to be replaced every few years.
- Natural Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, while dentures may not appear as lifelike.
- Improved Speech: Dental implants allow for better pronunciation and clarity of speech than dentures that can cause slurring or mumbling.
- Enhanced Comfort: Dental implants are more comfortable than dentures because they do not require adhesives or clasps that can cause soreness or irritation.
- Better Eating: Dental implants enable better chewing and biting force, allowing patients to enjoy a wider variety of foods than dentures that may require soft or pureed foods.
- Oral Health: Dental implants help preserve the natural bone structure of the jaw, preventing bone loss and maintaining the overall health of the mouth, while dentures can accelerate bone loss and lead to oral health problems.
