Why Dental Implants Win the Restorative Battle
Should I Get Dental Implants Instead of Dentures?
The unique nature of dental implants is that they’re paired with other restorations to build entire teeth. So if you already have dentures, you can receive dental implants that will anchor them to your jaw and improve their fit and function. This way, the dentures have the added stability that implants connected to the jaw bone can provide. Even the most advanced dentures benefit from some extra connection to the gum line.
If you’ve already been wearing dentures for some time, you may have experienced bone loss. This means there may not be adequate bone density to place implants right away. Since implants integrate with the jaw, they require enough bone tissue to serve as a nice foundation for the implant post. This doesn’t mean that you can’t get implants – in many cases, a bone graft will augment the area and make implant placement possible. You won’t know whether you’re a good implant candidate until you schedule a consultation, so set yours up today.
