Dental Implants Vs Dentures

Dental Implants vs Dentures

‘Dental Implants or Dentures?’, is one of the most debated topics among patients. At Surana Dental Care, we believe in offering patients treatments based on their preferences as well as the best for their particular condition.  The best treatment is often a blend of your personal expectations and goals, as well as the best option to tackle your condition. Dental Implants are one of the best replacements for dentures, offering a long-lasting, hassle-free solution to missing teeth.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a permanent solution for replacing teeth, where a titanium implant is surgically embedded in the jaw, to ensure a long-lasting finish that does not require constant care.

What is a denture?

A denture is a removable prosthetic to replace teeth, made by taking impressions of your mouth. These must be cleaned are care for regularly, and offer a temporary solution.

Dental Implants vs Dentures

Dental implants are fixed, stable structures that are bonded with your jaw, to offer a permanent finish. Dentures must be removed regularly for cleaning and maintenance and must be changed regularly.

Dental implants look and feel natural, as they blend with the existing teeth in shape and color. Dentures can feel fake and unnatural, often making your jaw feel fuller.

Dental implants are stain resistant and made of a durable material, due to which patients can eat while wearing them. Dentures are not stain resistant and only offer a limited chewing function, due to which they must be removed while eating certain foods.

Dental implants are hassle-free, and require the same care and maintenance as regular teeth. Dentures must be regularly removed and cleaned for optimum maintenance.

Dental implants stimulate the bone growth in the jaw, in case of patients with low bone density, preventing a collapse of the facial structures. Dentures do not offer any such functions, due to which the former is recommended by doctors to such patients.

Dentures are a more cost-effective option than dental implants. However, dental implants are a good long-term investment that offers a fuss-free solution to the problem of lost or missing teeth.
