|Garland, TX area dentist discusses teeth whitening gel »|
Garland, TX patients who are faced with tooth loss have several options available for restoration, including:
- Dental Implants
Dentures are the least expensive solution, while dental implants cost considerably more. But what is the comparison of dentures vs. dental implants? Dr. Vidya Suri of Kings Dental explains.
Dentures vs. implants
Between dentures and implants, there is a great divide in cost. Dentures appear to be much more economical, while implants may seem to be too expensive. However, many patients find that dental implants are a wonderful investment in the smile. Implants can last a lifetime. Dentures, on the other hand, need to be adjusted and will need replacement several times in several decades. When it comes down to the dollar, patients who need a restoration for 50 years will pay less over time for an implant than a denture in many cases.
Benefits of dentures
Dentures are removable. They can be taken out by the patient and cleaned, ensuring proper oral hygiene. However, this also makes them susceptible to damage. Dentures cost less upfront, and in many cases, they are covered in part or in full by dental insurance.
Benefits of dental implants
Implants, on the other hand, cost more upfront than dentures. But they can last a lifetime. Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, because they require sufficient bone structure. However, when placed, they maintain the bone unlike dentures. Implants are extremely strong, can anchor in a bridge or denture, and are biocompatible with the body, made from high quality titanium metal.
