The Best Solution for Missing Teeth: Why Dental Implants are Better Than Dentures

For decades, those with missing teeth have used dentures to avoid the embarrassing, frustrating problems associated with having a missing tooth. While dentures are an affordable, convenient, and fast solution technology has made it possible for more patients to choose dental implants in Oakland Gardens Queens, NY for a healthier, happier smile.

Cost Effectiveness

Many automatically turn to dentures because they believe they are the less expensive option. While this may be true up front, implants can last a lifetime if they are cared for correctly and placed properly. This means that they function exactly as a natural tooth would and are more durable than dentures. An investment in implants up front can save you money in the long run.

Bone Growth

When a tooth is lost, the root is pulled out of the jawbone. The root helps to stimulate new growth in the bone and without it, the jawbone will crumble and die over time. Dentures do nothing to address this problem but implants do.

Implants are small titanium screws that are placed directly in the jawbone. Over time, the bone cells connect with the screw and it functions as the root. This means that the bone regrows and continues to reproduce and there is no bone loss with implants.

Natural Look and Increased Comfort

Implants can be matched to any remaining teeth to ensure that they mesh exactly. Dentures often appear awkward and can shift throughout the day. Because they are only held in with adhesives, there are times when they can slip in public. Implants are almost identical to your natural teeth and move with the jaw. This means there is no possible way for them to shift. You can eat what you want, speak in public and clean your teeth easily without worry about them moving.
