Implants vs. Dentures

Why demystify why you should think of implants if you are missing a permanent tooth.


It is very common for a person to lose a permanent tooth for a variety of reasons.  It could be lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease or dental fractures. With advances in technology, you do not have to spend the rest of your life with missing teeth. There have been developments to find solution for missing teeth, dental implants and dentures are the most common alternatives.

Over the years, the quality and practicality of dentures have improved. Nevertheless, if dentures are not secured with denture adhesive, they may slip out of place while you are eating or sleeping. Apart from embarrassing you, partial dentures may aid decay and infection in other teeth if they aren’t fitted properly, due to which you would have to get a tooth filling on the adjacent tooth. That said, dentures may be the best choice for people whose gums and jaw are weak or unhealthy.
