Dentures and dental implants are common types of dental prosthetics that are used to fix a smile with missing teeth. One of the biggest pros of dental implants is their longevity while a downside is their cost. By contrast, dentures are affordable but can be uncomfortable. For patients that want long-term solutions to missing teeth, dentures are not going to fit their objectives. And, depending on a patient’s situation, implant-supported dentures could be the right approach.
If you suffer from broken and missing teeth it is likely that it is not just your oral health that is affected. Many aspects of your life may also be negatively impacted. Often, people with missing teeth report several other destructive symptoms in life. Some of the most commonly cited issues for people who do not have some or any of their teeth include lower self-esteem, inability to eat all the foods they used to enjoy, withdrawal from social situations, and problems excelling professionally.
There are several studies that have examined the powerful positive effects a restored smile can have on one’s life. Dr. McBride is a San Diego dental implant specialist that can help improve your life by fixing your smile.
Dental implants are an effective and popular method of replacing one missing tooth. And although you can replace many missing teeth with dental implants, you may be reluctant to go this route because of the associated cost.
Implant-supported dentures, though, present another option that may be right for you. If you have a whole mouth of missing teeth or have lost several teeth, implant-supported dentures can be a more stable and secure option at a more budget-friendly price point.
Out of the many advantages and benefits of implant-supported dentures, the ability to function similarly to natural teeth is a big one. So is being able to forget about denture adhesives and the constant worry about dentures sliding around in the mouth or falling out can be life-changing. This is because implant-supported dentures are secure in the mouth and do not have to be taken out to clean.
