Dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone, where they integrate with the bone, forging a solid foundation for your implant crowns. A denture, however, simply rests on the gums and stays in place with the help of dental glues and pastes. When these adhesives perform poorly, it can result in embarrassing slipping or shifting of the dentures.
Dental implants are permanently affixed. You never need to worry about removing them or having them fall out. Dentures, conversely, are a temporary option which must be removed at intervals for cleaning and while sleeping.
Ease of Maintenance
Maintaining the appearance of your dental implants requires only the same good dental hygiene routine and professional cleanings as your natural teeth. There are no additional products or regimens as there are with a denture.
Convenience and Durability
Dental implants are made to be durable and with proper care, will not need replacement. A denture, on the other hand, will need replacement or refitting due to wear and tear or as a result of the changes in bone volume.
Preservation of Bone Health
Bone health degrades as a result of a missing tooth but dental implants can stimulate the bone, protecting bone volume. This is not the case with dentures, which are a temporary replacement and therefore do not affect bone health.
For replacing multiple missing teeth, dental implants provide a more permanent, stable option when compared with traditional dentures. Contact Dr. Patel in Powell, OH today to schedule your implant consultation.a
