Dental Implants Versus Dentures: Which Is Better?

For several decades, dentures have been the standard solution for missing teeth, and they are particularly popular with older adults. Fortunately, advancements in dental innovations has now resulted in affordable and personalized dental implants for all our patients in Paramus.

While dentures and implants are both replacements for missing teeth, implants offer a more lasting and stable solution for missing teeth. You don’t have to feel self-conscious about your smile or worry about your dentures shifting as you speak or eat. Overall, dental implants are more effective restorations and offer optimal results over dentures.

Most importantly, expertly placed dental implants can give you back your attractive smile even during the older years.

Implants Are the Best Way to Restore Missing Teeth

Dental implants are made of durable titanium and offer a solid foundation to support crowns or bridges that look and feel very natural. You will be able to speak or chew just as you were able to do with your natural teeth.

Most dentists recommend dental implants for missing teeth because:

  • Since dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone (they fuse with the bone), they look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Compared to dentures, they don’t feel like an extra piece in the oral cavity.
  • The success rate with dental implants is very high. In fact, over 90 percent of patients have found dental implants to be an ideal restoration for missing teeth.
  • Dental implants also prevent loss of jawbone and reduce strain on adjacent teeth (unlike bridge therapy, for instance). Implant treatment is the only option that is able to accomplish this. With dentures, there is always the risk of the jawbone gradually wearing down over time.
  • Dental implants may require an additional investment of finance and time, but they are made to last a lifetime.
