Are dental implants better than dentures?
Depending on your dental health and your lifestyle, you may be considering dental implants. Dental implants are replacements for your missing teeth. Typically, they are made of titanium or another biocompatible metal post and topped with a dental crown to provide aesthetic tooth replacement and a stable chewing surface.
While denture technology has improved by leaps and bounds, dental implants do still have some advantages over traditional removable dentures. Most of our patients appreciate the fact that once dental implants are in place, they become a permanent part of your mouth, only requiring the same care as your own natural teeth. They also love never having to worry about whether a certain type of food will cause a problem or that their appliance will slip at precisely the wrong moment.
Dental implants look so natural that other people are unable to tell that dental work has been done. Dr. Drower is especially skilled at creating a seamless smile so that you achieve the greatest function and aesthetics possible.
Having dental implants also helps to retain your bone. That means your facial structure will not change because of missing teeth.
