Should I replace my missing teeth with implants or dentures?
Both options have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. If you are missing teeth, call our office so that we can schedule a consultation with either Dr. Bisson or Dr. Fletcher.
You and your dentist will discuss issues like:
- Your long-term goals
- The time frame for treatment
- Insurance or any budgetary restrictions
Dentures are a popular option that have been around for ages. Denture technology has improved considerably, giving today's dentures a much more lifelike look than previously. They are often covered by insurance and are comfortable to wear.
Implants, however, have many benefits beyond what dentures and partials can offer. Implants are a permanent solution that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. They don't require removal for cleaning, and you don't ever have to worry about them slipping at exactly the wrong moment.
Better yet, implants also help to prevent bone loss. By preserving this bone, you protect your periodontal health and your remaining teeth as well as the shape of your face.
Implants are not right for everybody, which is why a consultation with a skilled dentist is so important. We are happy to meet with you and create a plan that will help you meet your individual goals.
