Braintree-area residents considering dental implants often have a lot of questions. One of the most popular is, “Why should I get dental implants instead of dentures?”
This is an understandable question. After all, many people have seen their parents or grandparents wear dentures. While there are some cases where dentures make the most sense for patients, dental implants present a number of significant advantages over dentures.
For one thing, dental implants are more strongly supported within your mouth. Because they have a titanium root in your jaw, your dental implants are strong and secure. Dentures cannot make this claim.
This stronger support structure means dental implants are secure, unlike dentures. This helps you eat, chew and speak.
Dental implants also have the benefits of preserving the underlying structure of your jaw and maintaining the bone infrastructure. Dentures will not do this.
Finally, dental implants present cosmetic advantages over dentures as well. They’re harder to notice than dentures and will not provide you with the “sunken” look too many patients see while wearing dentures.
In certain circumstances we can support dentures with dental implants.
