Making the Switch From Dentures to Dental Implants

mature woman leaning couchIf you’re one of the people who chose dentures as the solution to tooth loss, as a more affordable option than implants, you might be surprised to find that’s not always the case.

Unlike implants, dentures need to be held in place with an adhesive to create a temporary bond. When the bond breaks, the dentures become loose, causing slipping and shifting. They become uncomfortable to wear, eat or speak, and must be replaced repeatedly, increasing the overall cost.

Dental Implants—the Permanent Choice

Unlike dentures, you never have to worry about replacing implants. These permanent appliances become part of your jaw, so they’ll never come loose or interfere with your speech. They look and function like a natural tooth, and most people will never know the difference between the implant and your natural teeth.

Most are made from titanium, as it’s gentle on your body, and allows for new bone growth and fusion around it. After healing is complete, you never have to worry about gum discomfort or pain. When fully integrated, your implant becomes a permanent part of your smile.

You can speak clearer and eat the foods you love without concern. Oral health care is easy; just follow the same healthy routines you do for all your teeth.

What to Expect

One of the dentists at Cure Dental will evaluate whether you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. During the procedure, a screw-like post is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root. In some cases, a bone graft will be necessary to increase the jawbone density before placing the post.

After healing, a custom-made crown that matches your tooth colour is permanently attached. You can smile confidently, knowing you never have to worry about your new implant.
