How Do Dental Implants Compare to Traditional Dentures?

Dental implants are currently considered the gold standard when replacing missing teeth in Leland, NC. They provide several advantages over traditional dentures. They are the only tooth replacement option that replaces some of the roots of your teeth, which helps preserve your bone. With traditional dentures, the bone that was stimulated by your natural tooth’s root will begin to resorb and deteriorate. As the bone melts away underneath the traditional denture, it gets loose and needs to be constantly adjusted. Dental implants integrate directly into your jawbone. The implants help to stimulate the bone and prevent it from resorbing.

In addition to looking and functioning like your natural teeth, implant-supported bridges or dentures are designed to stay in place. Because they are more comfortable and stable than traditional dentures, they provide a more natural chewing and biting capacity.

Long-term studies have shown that implant-supported bridges or dentures are more esthetically appealing and easier to maintain in Leland, NC than traditional dentures. The loss of bone that accompanies traditional dentures leads to recession of the jawbone and a collapsed, unattractive smile. Most patients will report difficulty eating certain foods, have trouble speaking, and cannot taste foods with traditional dentures. Traditional dentures often require sticky adhesives to stay in place, which is unnecessary with implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Your dentist at BlueWave Dentistry will attach a supporting structure to the implants so that you can snap your overdentures into place for increased stability and comfort while eating, drinking and speaking.
