When you have missing teeth, which is the better option for you: dentures or dental implants? Each has its upside and its drawbacks. At Wayne Dental Care, we are dedicated to helping you to find the very best teeth replacement for your individual circumstances.
There are many benefits to recommend our tooth implant in Fort Wayne NJ. It is the only full-tooth restoration that contains a root as well as a tooth. And because of that, it doesn’t only look and feel like a natural tooth, but also performs like one. You can speak and laugh with full confidence. And you can chew any foods, even crunchy or sticky ones without the slightest hesitation. It’s also true that with proper care, our tooth implant in Fort Wayne NJ can last a lifetime. But as with anything, no matter how good it is, it is not always for everyone. For one thing, your jaw bone needs to be sufficiently strong and thick so that it can hold the post (root), grow around it, and fuse with it to create a dependable foundation. Bone grafting can be done to correct the situation, if necessary. But if you don’t want to spend the time it takes to do that, in addition to waiting several months for your jaw tissue to fuse with the post; or the costs involved are not within your budget, you may want to consider dentures. They are priced less than implants, and partials can be completed quickly, meaning you won’t have any major delay in completing the process. However, the adhesive used to hold in your dentures is not always 100% reliable. Dentures can slide when you talk or you eat. Full dentures, though, can be done with implants as a base, giving you the best of both restorations.
