Dentures vs. Dental Implants: Which is Right for You?
Dentures and dental implants are two popular options for tooth replacement. But which is best for you? It depends on many factors, including your budget, lifestyle, and oral health. We break down each option to help you make the best decision for your smile.
- Dentures are the most popular option when it comes to tooth replacement. Almost one in five people wear some form of dentures, as a study found that an average of 19% of the population wear them. They are less expensive than implants, and you can remove them at any time of the day. Dentures are fitted for a patient’s mouth and are ideal for anyone with unhealthy or weak jaws.
- Dental Implants are more expensive than dentures but are more permanent. Implants have a 98% success rate and can last a lifetime when properly cared for. They are also easier to clean, as you do not have to remove them. Additionally, Dental Implants provide the best replacement for missing or diseased teeth. Many patients find that they can once again be able to eat the foods they love.
