Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dentures
Bella Smiles offers several replacement options for missing teeth to restore optimal oral health. The best treatment for you will depend on your personal oral health needs and cosmetic goals. Dr. Sal Lotardo, a Riverhead, NY dentist, will evaluate your gums and teeth and present you with all of your treatment options.
Dr. Lotardo will further explain the pros and cons of each treatment and how they will benefit you.
Dental implants are recommended over removable appliances like dentures because they last longer and have more natural-looking results. They also offer long-term benefits for dental health when compared to dentures as well as dental bridges.
With a 98% success rate, implants replace a missing tooth or teeth at the root. Dental implants improve the chewing function of teeth, do not slip, and look and feel natural.
If you choose dentures to replace your missing teeth, you now have the option to receive a removable denture or a dental-implant-secured denture. However, removable dentures can move or shift while patients are eating and chewing.
When secured with dental implants, dentures are able to support the jaw structure and prevent further bone loss. An implant-secured denture does not require daily cleaning or adhesives and allows patients to enjoy their best quality of life. They can be brushed and maintained like your natural teeth.
