When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you may initially be concerned about finances more than anything else. While affordability is a major and valid concern you should have, let’s focus on another aspect of teeth replacement that is often overlooked – replacement options advantages.
Advantages of Dentures
Dentures have long been used as a replacement option for missing teeth. Many people choose them for these reasons:
· Relatively inexpensive to make
· Fast and convenient option for those on a budget
· No long wait periods
· Minimally to noninvasive
· Less pain and discomfort
The downside to having dentures is they are not a permanent or very flexible solution. No matter how well you care for them, you will need to be refitted and have them replaced periodically throughout your lifetime. They can shift around in your mouth and interfere with your ability to eat, speak and smile naturally. They can also be lost or broken, resulting in the need to be without them for a few days as you wait on replacements. They also do not prevent your bones, jaw and remaining teeth from shifting and changing the contours of your face.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental Implants may cost a little more upfront. However, they offer you much better benefits that you’ll be able to enjoy for the rest of your life.
These benefits include:
· Permanent restoration option. No need to replace anything.
· More durable, comfortable and convenient.
· Fewer office visits.
· Implants don’t move or shift.
· Protects remaining teeth and jaw structure.
· More affordable.
· Higher satisfaction rate.
