Dentures or Implants: Which is Better?
Missing teeth have a big impact on our self-esteem. As much as we want to, we always want to make sure that our teeth are well maintained because nothing beats the natural teeth.
But due to ageing, we really can’t guarantee that we will be able to keep our teeth. The common replacement for teeth loss is always dentures and implants.
Dentures have come a long way in the last 10-20 years than implants. Dentures are also known as false teeth, are fitted to a mouthpiece that is affixed to the gums with denture adhesive.
The main use of dentures is the replacement of lost teeth. They can take some time to get used to, and your dentist may recommend soft foods as well as practising speaking for the first several weeks.
Dentures are a bit uncomfortable at first but you need to make sure to wear it all the time. For implants, it’s a permanent tooth replacement but not everyone can have implants.
Your dentist needs to do several tests for before you can proceed with the procedure.
One of the advantages of dental implants is it does look like natural teeth and stays for 10 to 15 years or even more depending on how you take care of it.
Implants will also take a few months to be completed. It is very important that you are patient and financially ready if you choose implants.
