Denture Implants vs Dentures – Which Is Better?

Denture Implants vs Dentures – Which Is Better?

Are you missing one or multiple teeth? If so, Dentures and Denture Implants may be a treatment option for you. 

Whether Dentures or Denture Implants are the best options for you will depend on a variety of factors. In this article, we will explore both treatment options, the difference between Dentures and Implants and the costs involved.

Benefits of Dentures and Denture Implants

To treat missing teeth, Dentures and Denture Implants can:

  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Restore ability to eat and chew
  • Improve speech
  • Support facial muscles 
  • Offer a long-lasting solution

Read on to find out about the pros and cons of Dentures vs Implants.

Who Needs Dentures or Denture Implants?

Dentures and Denture Implants are common Dental treatments for those who suffer from tooth loss. You may require this treatment if you have:

  • One or more missing teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Severe cavities
  • Chronic toothaches
  • Severe tooth decay 
  • Cracked teeth

Your Dentist will outline your condition and treatment options. Whether you require Dentures or Denture Implants will depend on your condition, preference and the health of your jawbone and other teeth.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are removable and resemble a full, healthy mouth of teeth. Dentures are custom fitted to your mouth and bite and can be made for either the upper or lower jaw, or both. Partial Dentures can be used to replace a few missing teeth.

Dentures look like natural teeth and gums to enhance the aesthetic of your smile. Dentures are held in place with an adhesive to bond them to your gum or can be clipped in.

What are Denture Implants?

Denture Implants serve the same function as Dentures, however, are secured in place with Dental Implants. After the Implants are placed, Dentures can be secured in the jaw for a reliable solution to missing teeth. For Denture Implants, patients require enough jaw bone to place the Implants in. 

Who is suitable for Denture Implants?

For those who are after a permanent solution to missing teeth, Denture Implants can be the best treatment option. If you are unable to take care of removable Dentures, you may prefer Denture Implants which are lower maintenance and permanent treatment.

Denture Implants require a certain amount of jawbone density to place the Implant. Your Dentist will assess your jawbone condition and decipher if you are a suitable Denture Implant candidate.

What’s the Difference Between Dentures and Implants?

What’s the difference between Dentures and Implants? Dentures are removable prosthetics for missing teeth, whereas Denture Implants are embedded in the jawbone for permanent replacements.

Dental Implants vs Dentures

To summarise, the best Denture treatment option for you will depend on your condition and preferences. At your Denture Consultation with Brisbane Smiles, your Dentist will discuss your best treatment options and expected costs.

The advantages of Dental Implants vs Dentures are:

Dental Implants

  • Denture Implants can help prevent further bone loss
  • Denture Implants resemble a natural smile
  • A permanent solution that does not typically require replacement
  • You can be confident that your secured Denture will not fall out in awkward moments
  • Less daily maintenance than Dentures
  • Typically do not need to be replaced like Dentures

 

Dentures

  • Typically a lower-cost option than Denture Implants
  • A removable option 
  • A great option for Denture patients whose gums can not take Implants
