Dental Implants as an Option to Dentures

Heritage Family DentistryQuestion:
I have worn dentures for years and they have never felt 100% comfortable.  I’ve heard that dental implants are becoming more popular as an option for tooth replacement.  Can you give me some pros about implants?

Answer:
One of the main reasons people like implants is that they are the best replacement option that looks and feels like real teeth.  People often complain that their dentures make their mouth sore and feel awkward to wear, sometimes even falling out at unexpected times and causing embarrassment.  Implants are made to stay in place, and because they have such a natural appearance, people often experience a boost in their level of self-confidence.

New technology allows us to permanently implant teeth that result in a totally natural smile, good comfort level, and a natural chewing function.  Full dental implants with supported bridgework are expensive, but an economical treatment option is to use a combination of upper and lower dentures secured by several implants.

We will perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine what treatment options are best for you, considering factors such as the overall health of your mouth, characteristics of your jawbone, and any signs of bone loss, tooth decay, or gum disease. Our goal at Heritage Family Dentistry to provide dental solutions that fit your lifestyle.”
