Implant Dentures vs. Dentures


Dentures vs. Implants: Comfort

With a dental implant, you can be more confident knowing it won’t slip or break with normal wear and tear. Since dental implants feel like your own, natural teeth, you don’t have much of an adjustment period. You can resume eating, drinking, and speaking normally on the same day as your permanent crown placement.
If you are wearing dentures , you may have to deal with slippage and debris getting caught beneath your prosthetic device. This can cause discomfort and difficulty with eating or speaking. Dentures also need to be removed and carefully cleaned every night.


Dentures vs. Implants: Appearance

An implant denture uses dental implants to securely hold your prosthetic in place rather than using adhesives or suction like a traditional denture. The dental implant is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone, and after the healing period, the abutment and restoration are placed on top of them.
Implant dentures look and feel like your natural teeth - the color of the denture base and shade of the crowns are matched with your existing gums and teeth. If your entire arch is replaced, your dentist will choose a shade that best complements your appearance.
Dentures are also designed with a natural look and feel in mind. They also come with prosthetic teeth and gum tissue for the most comfortable and natural appearance possible.
