Dentures have been the industry standard to treat missing teeth for many years.  Dentures are not always the best solution.  Dental implants can be a better solution to treat missing teeth than dentures.  If you don’t want to discover the reasons why dental implants are a better option than dentures – then stop reading now.  Otherwise, read on and you will find out what makes dental implants the smarter choice for patients with missing teeth.

Dental Implants Midtown Manhattan DentistFirst, dental patients should know that dental implants are different than dentures.  Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth.  They are usually made from an acrylic resin along with porcelain or metal to add support.   Complete dentures and partial Dentures can be used to help replace missing teeth.  Dentures can be removed from the mouth as they are not permanently affixed.

Dental implants have been around for approximately 20 years.  Dental implants refer to an artificial tooth root that a dentist places into the patient’s jaw with the goal of being able to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are great choice for patients in good oral health who have lost teeth. 

Dental implants look natural and feel natural.  Dental implants make patients forget that they are there, while patients are always conscious of their dentures.  While dentures don’t always feel secure and they can give problems when eating – dental implants allow patients to replace missing teeth in a way that feels and looks just like your own teeth.  Dental implants, under proper conditions, can last a lifetime.
