Should I Choose Dental Implants or Dentures?


Posted on 2/2/2024 by Weo Admin

Aesthetics


We all want a smile that is pleasing. Dentures, to some point, try to look natural, doing a decent job. Dental implants, on the other hand, are the real deal in terms of aesthetics, blending in seamlessly with your teeth and brightening your smile. So, if you are after enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your teeth, then perhaps dental implants could be the perfect fit.

Maintenance


Of course, both forms of dental restoration will need some kind of maintenance. Dentures on their side demand a nightly ritual - a soak and careful cleaning. Dental implants do not need so much attention, as your regular dental hygiene routine of brushing and flossing will suffice. So, it turns out maintaining implants is much less of a hassle than their counterparts.

Utility


Dentures can prove to be challenging when you need to eat. You cannot eat just anything with your dentures on, as there are certain restrictions you should be aware of. Implants are versatile; they can easily handle just about any food. Implants are known for being almost as strong as, if not stronger than, natural teeth.

Cost


Dentures easily win the affordability race, but there are definite drawbacks to dentures in the long run, such as loss of bone density in the jaws. However, if you are not a candidate for implants, they are the best option in the right situations. Dental implants reign supreme when it comes to durability and reliability, but they are not cheap. You must consider implants as a solid investment in your future smiles. Ultimately, it boils down to your dental condition, preferences, and finances when choosing between dental implants and dentures.

If you are unsure about whether dentures or implants are a better fit for your unique situation, our dentist is best suited to advise you on the best path after examining your condition. Either way, you have solid options to transform your smile.
