You have a decision to make. Since losing your teeth, you can do a couple of things:
- Get dentures
- Get dental implants
At Davenport Dental Group in Laredo, TX, we want you to enjoy a healthy mouth for years to come. It’s why we want to help you decides which solution is best for your goals.
Modern dentures are made with materials that look natural. Dental implants function as roots for your missing teeth, but they can keep your dental restoration in place.
Traditional dentures rest over your gumline. This limits your biting power and chewing ability because your replacement teeth can slide around. By getting implants, your new teeth can remain firmly in place. This allows you to put more force into your bite, so you can continue eating a wide variety of food.
Since dentures don’t connect to your jawbone, they don’t provide the stimulation necessary to prevent bone loss. Implants, on the other hand, do provide that direct stimulation, which can keep your jaw healthy and strong.
Implants can be used to support and secure your dentures so you have a great smile, a strong bite, and a healthy jaw for decades to come.
