You are missing a complete row of teeth. Now you have a decision to make: dentures or dental implants? To decide, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our doctors at Advanced Dental Center in Florence, SC. Until then, consider these factors.
You Want a Complete Smile
This often is the first concern of people who have lost teeth. With dentures and dental implants, you can have a smile that looks whole again.
You Want to Speak Naturally
Dentures can be tricky. Over time, they become looser, in part because of the bone loss that occurs in your jaw. This allows dentures to slide around, which can make pronouncing certain words difficult. By getting implants, you won’t have the bone loss problem, and your new teeth are secure. This allows you to speak clearly.
You Want to Eat Anything
Whether you are an adventurous eater or you prefer your comfort foods, you want to be able to eat whatever you would like. Loose dentures can make it challenging to bite and chew. With implants, you can feel confident that you can bite with more than enough force to pile whatever your heart (or stomach) desires on your plate.
