Dentures vs. Dental Implants: Which Will Transform Your Smile?

Dentures Aren’t Your Only Option

According to the American Dental Association, it’s common for adults aged 20 to 64 to have three or more decayed or missing teeth. Tooth loss can negatively impact your chewing and nutrition and lead to declining oral health and function. Even a single missing tooth can cause loss of bone and shifting of surrounding teeth, while the spaces can harbor bacteria and cause a gum infection that can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. If you have many failing and missing teeth or wear dentures, you’ve likely felt uncomfortable or embarrassed in social situations and experienced functional issues. When you receive dental implants in Sacramento, CA, they’ll provide the ability to live a healthy, confident life. We offer a full array of solutions at Aria Dental Implants & Perio, including removable dentures and implant supported dentures. If you’re looking for permanent dentures, the best choices are implants for dentures or fixed full mouth dental implants. Each solution has its own advantages, drawbacks and associated costs. Learning about different available tooth replacement options will help you make an informed decision and be prepared with questions when you meet our implant dentist Dr. Matthew Korn. At Aria Dental Implants & Perio, regardless of the solution you choose, we’re dedicated to delivering the best one to restore your smile and improve your quality of life!

Comparing Fixed Teeth Vs. Removable Options

If you have missing teeth, Matt can replace them with fixed or removable solutions. Traditional dentures only replace the part of your tooth visible above the gum line. While dentures can help you resume a more varied diet and smile confidently, the underlying root structure is still missing. As such, dentures can’t prevent bone loss and often slip, click and fall out, which can lead to problems speaking and potentially embarrassing situations at every meal. In addition, traditional dentures require messy adhesives and need to be removed at night for cleaning. Implant supported dentures in Sacramento, CA provide far greater stability and can be designed in a removable version as an overdenture or as a fixed option. With both implant supported dentures and full-mouth dental implants, a titanium post is inserted into your jawbone that assumes the role of the natural tooth root to provide strong and stable support for the prosthesis. Dental implants stimulate bone growth, prevent changes to your facial structure and reduce the risk of decay and gum disease caused by bacteria accumulating on teeth exposed by empty spaces.
