As a Cosmetic Dentist, We Can Replace Your Loose Dentures With Secure Dental Implants

Dental ImplantsIf you are considering getting dental implants, then visit our Albuquerque cosmetic dentist office. Implants are an excellent way to replace your missing teeth when you want a secure and permanent solution. While dentures are a durable and dependable solution, they are designed to be removable and, therefore, will not feel as natural as your original teeth. For this reason, many people report feeling anxious over the possibility of their dentures falling out while speaking or eating. Some people do not go out to eat as a result. If you are wearing dentures and are concerned about how to feel or behave, call us to discuss implants. In the meantime, here are a few things you should know.

Dentures vs. Implants: The Differences Between These Common Solutions

Appearance.

Dental implants are the most natural-looking tooth replacement. To create the tooth portion of your implants, we will make an impression of your mouth and take measurements so the new tooth or teeth are created to be the exact size and shape necessary to blend in with the surrounding ones. They will look so natural, it will be difficult, perhaps impossible, to tell the difference between a natural tooth and the implant. Dentures can also look natural, but the quality of the denture will make a significant difference in how they look.

Security.

As a cosmetic dentist, we have several ways to replace your teeth, including implants, dentures, and a dental bridge. While all three can be practical and durable solutions, there is only one that provides the same level of stability as a natural tooth – dental implants. The metal posts we use for implants are made of titanium, a material the body accepts as natural matter. This leads to the process of osseointegration so the implant is as secure as a natural tooth. Dentures, on the other hand, are removable and can, therefore, become loose.

Care routine.

To take care of implants, all you need to do is brush and floss your teeth and have them cleaned professionally twice per year. Dentures need to be removed, cleaned, and soaked nightly, so this makes them far less convenient.

Day to Day.

Daily life with dentures is far more complex than life with dental implants. Since they need to be removed and soaked, you need to plan for this and bring the appropriate solution. You may also need to adjust what and how you eat for the initial period. With dental implants, you will not need to worry about any of these issues. You can eat all of your favorite foods and engage in all of your daily activities without restriction or fear of them coming loose. On a daily basis, dental implants are the most convenient solution.

When you visit our cosmetic dentist office, we can discuss your many options for replacing teeth, including dental implants. To learn more, call (505) 634-5029 and schedule a consultation.
