Having missing teeth can greatly affect your life-style, it may cause you to feel self-conscious and even embarrassed during social situations.
Since teeth are necessary for the mastication process of food, when there are missing teeth you will most probably feel discomfort and experience difficulty while eating or speaking.
Dentures are the most traditional solution for missing teeth, and you will have the option of choosing either full dentures or partial ones depending on your needs.
Dentures are removable false teeth and as will any solution they have their pros and cons.
1- Dentures usually need to be held in place with a fixative in the form of an adhesive paste, the process of applying it is not always nice and the bond is not always completely secure.
2- Since dentures are held into place with a fixative, they tend to move around. It is normal for dentures to slip and cause discomfort and even embarrassment when you eat or speak. The soft tissues of your mouth, such as your gums might become irritated and sore.
3- Extra care and time must be dedicated to cleansing dentures, a ritual that denture users simply cannot omit, also they will need replacements from time to time.
1- They are budget-friendly and cheaper than implants.
Dental Implants are a better, more refined alternative to dentures for many reasons. They are created with state-of-the-art technology and are the best solution for missing teeth nowadays.
1- Implants are secured either in the gum or jaw and will serve as the anchor for a crown. This way they will be completely secured and no slipping will occur.
2- When dental implants are done properly they can last for a lifetime, thus replacing missing teeth effectively.
3- They are esthetic and can give you the smile that you have always wanted.
4- Do not require extra cleaning, just brush them as you would with real teeth.
5- Prevents gums and bone to deteriorate. Since they are anchored into the jaw, they will eventually integrate with it and will replace missing tooth root.
1- Their cost is slightly higher than dentures.
