When you are considering whether to replace your teeth with dentures or dental implants, it is helpful to know the dental implant benefits. Dr. Loyd Dowd offers both dentures and dental implants to replace missing adult teeth in Tyler, TX but generally recommends dental implants due to their many health benefits.
WHAT IS BEST, DENTAL IMPLANTS OR DENTURES?
Dentures are popular due to their affordability, but many patients who opt for dentures will eventually schedule a consultation to learn more about dental implants. This is because denture wearers grow weary of the slipping and clicking that results from poor denture adhesives and the restrictive diets.
BEST DENTAL IMPLANTS BENEFITS
Dental implants in Tyler, TX offer many advantages over traditional dentures. From the natural integration of materials to the prevention of bone loss, dental implants are the highest standard of tooth restoration available. Additional benefits include:
Dental implants are permanent and do not require any special care. You will not have to take out your teeth to clean them. You simply brush and floss your implants just like your natural teeth.
Implants offer a secure foundation for chewing, as they are fused into the jaw bone. You do not need to worry about “losing” your teeth when you eat your favorite foods.
Dental implants are a versatile option that may be placed individually or can be used as a foundation for your dentures, with methods like implant supported dentures, three unit bridges, and All-on-4.
The posts of the implants mimic the tooth root, stimulating the jaw bone and halting the bone degradation process that begins when you lose a tooth.
