Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures
If you are looking for a beautiful, functional, practical tooth replacement option, look no further than implant dentistry by Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA. Implant-supported dentures look, feel and function so much like your regular teeth that no one has to know that you have false teeth but you. The implant helps keep the dentures in place so they don't slip or slide around, and there is no messy paste to deal with. They are even easy to clean. Plus, the implants can help keep your jaw bone strong and healthy, an advantage traditional dentures don't offer.
Disadvantages of Implant-Supported Dentures
Unfortunately, however, not everyone who wants implant-supported dentures can have them. Because the implants have to be surgically attached to the jaw bone, you must be healthy enough for surgery and you must have a jaw bone that is strong and sturdy enough for the implants to attach to. Furthermore, implant-supported dentures are more expensive than traditional dentures, and they may be more expensive or difficult to fix if they break.
Ultimately, both traditional implants and implant-supported dentures can be great options; you'll simply have to decide which one works best for you.
If you are ready to look and feel your best with a beautiful new smile, implant dentistry can help you do just that. Call your dentist at Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA to discuss your options and to set up an appointment for a consultation today.
