Do You Have to opt for Dentures if You Have No Teeth Left?
Posted on 9/21/2020 by Alexandra Garcia DDS MS
Patients with missing or no teeth think dentures are the only solution. That's not true. There is another option called “dental implants.” It is another popular procedure for people with no teeth.
Definition of Dental Implants
Implants are put in your jawbone during oral surgery. They then act as the roots for your implants, replacing your missing teeth. They let you live the way you want to. You can confidently eat, smile, laugh, and talk all you want every day without worrying about your teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
First of all, implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your regular teeth. Implants allow you to eat your favorite foods. They also help to chew your food better. They make you feel better about yourself. With dentures, the teeth may slip around inside your mouth, causing your words to slur together. Implants let you talk without the worry of your teeth falling out. They also eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures. Implants provide more comfort in your mouth so you don't have to worry about pain. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that replaces jaw bone stimulation, which helps to prevent bone loss. You will never have to worry about getting cavities in your implants. Another nice thing about implants is you can treat them like regular teeth. You just have to brush and floss like with regular teeth.
