Dental implants have the distinct ability to preserve bone health. When a tooth is lost, the absence of the tooth root spurs the deterioration of bone. The placement of dental implants halts this process, allowing you to maintain your existing bone volume. Dentures, however, simply rest on the gum tissues and do nothing to improve the bone degradation process. In fact, opting for dentures will most likely ensure that your bone will continue to deteriorate over time. This results in future denture refitting appointments to adjust your dentures to the alterations in bone shape.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement which can last a lifetime. No one will ever know that they are not your natural teeth unless you tell them, as they are not removable. Even the maintenance required for dental implants in Coppell, Texas is the same as that of your own teeth: brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings. Dentures, on the other hand, must be removed at night and require special products for cleaning and adhesion.
The cost of dental implants is generally more than the cost of dentures. The cost of dental implants can vary depending upon factors ranging from the number of teeth to be replaced to the application used, such as single implants versus implant supported dentures. However, many patients choose dental implants over the more affordable dentures because of the increased quality of life that they afford. With implants, there are no diet restrictions or embarrassing clicking noises when you speak.
