Independence Dentures Are an Easy Decision
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that look, feel and act just like the real thing. Today’s dentures come two ways: implant and non implant-supported full or partial dentures. What does that mean, exactly? Let’s take a closer look at each to find out.
Implant-Supported Dentures Are Super Secure
When you choose to stabilize your dentures with dental implants, you’re giving your new teeth the stability they need to stay in at all times — and you’re giving your jawbone the stimulation it requires to remain healthy. The process for dental implants is longer and more invasive, but the result is a set of dentures that gives the look and feel of your natural teeth a real run for their money.
Here are some benefits of implant-supported dentures:
- They allow you to eat, chew and speak just like you’re used to
- Implant-supported dentures promote good oral and overall health
- When cared for properly, dentures supported by dental implants last a lifetime
Non Implant-Supported Dentures Are Faster and More Affordable
Patients who choose dentures that snap in or are bonded with dental adhesive enjoy the fast, budget-friendly aspects of this option in tooth replacement. This type of denture looks and acts just like your natural teeth, but may need to be refitted as the years pass due to the degeneration of the jawbone.
Partial and Full Dentures, Based on Your Needs
When you decide that dentures are the right tooth replacement option for you, Dr. Nakhla will advise you on whether you need a partial or full denture. Partials replace several missing teeth from spaces all over the mouth, and they fit securely, like your smile’s missing puzzle piece. Full dentures replace a whole row of teeth on the top or bottom.
