Dentures vs Implants: Pros & Cons
Dental Implants vs Dentures
If you have missing teeth and are unsure of which type of restoration to choose form dental implants or dentures, you will find your answer here. Please read on. As a young child, I occasionally slept over at my grandma’s house with my cousin. I remember fondly and with a bit of terror, what transpired when we misbehaved. My grandmother would take out from her mouth her upper and lower dentures. Holding them in her hands, she would chase us around the house until we promised to be good. Today modern implant dentistry would not allow Grandma Sophie to scare her grandchildren with “chasing” dentures. Dental implants will afford her to comfortably eat an apple, speak clearly and maintain the proper support of her lips.

If this story has not persuaded you here is the nitty–gritty:
Dental implants are easily placed. There is very little postoperative discomfort, swelling or bruising after the implant is placed. Many patients go back to work the same day. Everyone returns to their normal routine the very next day. 2-3 months after the implant is placed, patients will have an implant abutment and crown placed to restore the missing tooth. If there is need to replace multiple teeth, an implant supported bridge is an option. If you have been wearing removable dentures, you are probably tired of loose fit & not being able to eat some of the foods that you loved; with implant supported dentures your problems will be solved. Most PPO insurance companies now cover a percentage of the cost of the dental implants; so that patient’s out of pockets are kept to a minimum. When one thinks about actually having a fixed tooth back in one’s mouth after losing a tooth, the experience is indeed priceless.
