Both dentures and dental implants are the perfect answer to replacing missing teeth. Our dental implants in Detroit MI are made from the strongest materials, and implanted directly into the bone for stability. Our dentures are fabricated specially to match your bone structure and shape, and can replace multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are different from dentures in many ways, however.
Implants are actually stronger than a natural tooth root and even better, they help maintain the shape of the jaw line by improving facial aesthetics. When teeth are missing, the jawline can warp as it begins to sink in where the missing teeth were. After implant surgery, the shape of the jawline will fill in and go back to normal. Implants also eradicate the need for a root canal or filling again. After receiving a dental implants in Detroit MI in place of a missing tooth, we then cover the implant with a denture or cap to protect it. Dentures, on the other hand, are fitted directly to the mouth and are not permanent in the sense that they are not adhered to teeth permanently. Whereas implants employ an artificial tooth, dentures are false teeth that can be taken in and out of the mouth. The choice is up to the patient.
Dentures can replace many missing teeth at once, while dental implants in Detroit MI can be costly to replace more than one or two. For certain patients, there may be other options to replace missing teeth, such as removable or fixed bridges or dentures. Complete dentures and partials are also available. Complete dentures are usually used for those who have lost most or all of their teeth. For those with some teeth remaining, we recommend getting partial dentures. This is a good option if several or more teeth are missing and to avoid changes in jawline.
