Dentures vs. Dental Implants Jupiter FL
Losing your teeth is a natural part of aging. Traditionally, the elderly used to wear dentures as replacement teeth to recover their ability to chew and smile. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, we now, however, have more comfortable, functional, and esthetically pleasing alternatives to dentures. At Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, the most popular choice is implant-supported dentures.
What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are a type of dentures not supported by your gums but attached by a few dental implants on both your upper and lower jaw. These dentures are also known as overdentures or snap-on dentures and can be removed like traditional dentures. However, they provide more stability and comfort to the wearer.
Benefits Of Implant Supported Dentures Over Traditional Dentures
Dentures are the most conservative and popular way to replace lost teeth. However, they have several drawbacks, which is why Dr. Roy Blake considers implant-supported dentures a more suitable choice.
Although traditional dentures are a very safe tooth replacement option, they have several limitations and do not offer a comfortable or permanent solution for people who have lost their natural teeth. On the other hand, implant-supported dentures offer superior functionality, esthetics and can last for decades.
