Two of the most popular tooth replacement solutions are Orlando dentures and implants. Replacing missing teeth is paramount. Did you know that tooth loss will make you vulnerable to oral health complications?
Missing teeth do not just affect your looks. Studies show that tooth loss will predispose you to teeth misalignment, gum disease, cavity formation, further tooth loss, and bone loss. Therefore, if you recently lost some of your permanent teeth, you should talk to your dentist to know which tooth replacement option is best for you.
Both dental prostheses serve the same purpose – to restore your oral function, but they differ in so many ways. It’s essential to be familiar with the pros and cons of each method so you can make an informed decision.
A denture is a removable dental device that comes in two sets – partial and complete. Partial dentures are for those who still have natural teeth left, while complete are for patients who have lost their entire teeth both in the upper and lower jaw.
Advancements in dental technology have made it possible for dentures to look like natural teeth. A major advantage of dentures is that they are significantly cheaper than dental implants but only last up to seven to ten years. You must also practice proper denture care to keep them in great shape.
Dental implants are screw-shaped metal rods that are surgically implanted into your jawbone. It’s an invasive procedure but has a high success rate of up to 95%.
Dental implant surgery is one of the most in-demand restorative dental treatments because the implants are designed to last forever, so you don’t need to have them repaired or replaced. Because of their permanence, you can expect them to be more costly than dentures.
