Understanding Your Options for Dental Implants and Dentures

dca-blog_dental-implant-man-with-picture

If your smile is missing a few teeth, you’re in good company. Nearly 70 percent of adults aged 35 to 44 are missing at least one tooth. Early tooth loss can be the result of injuries or accidents, severe gum disease, or tooth decay. There’s no need to go through life without teeth; dental implants and full or partial dentures can be great solutions. Choosing between affordable quality dentures and the more-costly dental implants requires careful consideration of your health and lifestyle as well as your budget. Here are a few facts to help you explore your options.

Benefits
of Dental Implants

An implant is a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. If your jawbone and gums are both healthy, dental implants and individual artificial teeth may be your best option. If you care for them properly, implanted teeth can last more than 20 years. People with certain medical conditions are not good implant candidates; your dentist can determine your eligibility. Advantages of implant placement include the following:

  • Looks, feels, and functions more like a real tooth
  • An implant will not affect your speech
  • More comfortable than removable dentures
  • No sliding during eating
  • No clicking sounds
  • No need for adhesives or soaking
  • Success rate of 98 percent

Benefits of Dentures



The appearance and quality of dentures have greatly improved over the past few decades. If your jawbone is unhealthy, or you have extensive gum disease, full or partial dentures may be your best choice. A conventional denture is placed about 12 weeks after unhealthy teeth are removed. Denture-wearers enjoy the following advantages:

  • Denture placement is often covered by dental insurance
  • Safe for people with unstable jawbones or other medical conditions
  • No risk of surgical complications
  • Can be easily altered or adjusted if needed
