Are Implants Better Than Dentures?

Two of our most popular cosmetic treatments are implants and dentures. Both treatments can achieve a fantastic result that restores your confident smile, but this depends on what’s best for you. “We will offer a solution that can achieve the perfect smile you can be confident with.”Dr David Bloom

For some people, implants are a better fit for treatment. However, for others, dentures would be the more suitable alternative.

Both treatments are excellent in their respect. The success and longevity of any treatment depend on the appropriateness of each treatment to the individual case.

They each become the proper treatment in the appropriate circumstances.

You can also choose to have dentures supported by implants. So you have implants placed in the jaw and a removable denture that fits securely on top.

The best way of choosing between dentures and implants is to look at the advantages of each treatment and see which you would prefer.

The Choice of Treatment Depends on:

The amount and quality of the bone levels in the jawbone. Bone density would be a deciding factor as to whether implants would be correct for you instead of dentures.

In most instances, there is good bone support which reduces the complexity of the treatment.

However, dentures may be your only alternative in situations where you don’t have enough bone, or you may need to consider an advanced treatment like bone grafting.

  • The Number of Missing Teeth: Implants can be a good option if you have only a few teeth missing. Many people find partial dentures challenging to cope with or don’t like the metal clasps used to retain the denture in the mouth.
  • The Level of Infection in Your Mouth:

    Your susceptibility to it also plays an important consideration in which treatment would be more appropriate for you. Your clinical examination will highlight this point for us.

You have two options:

  • A fixed option (one where you don’t take your teeth out)
  • A removable option (like a denture that you put in to eat and take out to clean)
If you don’t like the feeling of having mobile dentures in your mouth, then you may opt to choose implants.
On the other hand, a fixed option allows you to eat confidently and consume foods you previously could not. Implants involve surgical treatment and are an invasive procedure. Some people may not like this treatment and prefer a more straightforward option.
