Read below to find out more, and then schedule an appointment with one of our dental professionals to get their opinion about which is the best fit for you to get your full and complete smile back.
Are Traditional Dentures for Me?
Traditional dentures are removable replacement teeth. The pink plastic base sits on the gums, forming a seal using suction or gravity. The base will match your gums and blend in with them, so others don’t need to know that you’re wearing dentures. Traditional dentures can always be placed fairly quickly, so you can start enjoying a beautiful and full smile right away. Our patients love the look of the replacement teeth on traditional dentures. They will give you back your self-esteem and the desire to share a smile and laugh with those around you.
Traditional dentures are the most affordable denture option. They are also always the best choice for patients who have suffered significant bone loss, even if it does take some time to adjust to the way dentures feel, and might take some practice before you are able to chew and speak with ease again. Traditional dentures are convenient to remove and replace, but they are not as stable as implant supported dentures.
Are Implant Supported Dentures for Me?
If you choose implant supported dentures, you will have to wait a little longer to secure your complete smile, but you won’t believe how natural these dentures look and feel. First, you will receive dental implants, which are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone. You will wait for a few months while the implants fuse with the jawbone, and then our dentists can restore the dental implants with a set of beautiful dentures.
Implant supported dentures will quickly make it more comfortable for you to eat, chew, and speak normally. They stay in the mouth like real teeth do, so you do not need to worry about your replacement teeth sliding or slipping around. They will increase your bite force, and are easy to care for and maintain. While they cost more than traditional dentures, implant supported dentures resolve all of the problems that might arise with the traditional option.
