It’s very important that people with missing teeth seek out a replacement for the lost teeth. Deciding what the best restoration is can be a confusing process. Edward B. Miller, DDS in Duncanville, Texas is here to help you in this. We offer both dental implants and dentures. Let us describe these two forms of restoration to help you in your decision making.
Dental implants are becoming increasingly popular, especially with those who’ve lost teeth as a result of having gum disease. Dental implants will look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and only your dentist will be able to tell the difference.
Implants can’t be inserted in all cases, however. If your gum or jawline has suffered a loss of health as a result of gum disease or other reasons, they may not be able to offer the necessary support for implants. Dentures are the better option in these cases.
We all known dentures are often cast in a bad light. Despite that, dentures are an effective way for you to replace your teeth. The time it takes to get used to your dentures is worth it to restore your smile and also avoid the side effects that come from tooth loss.
Care of your dentures requires more upkeep than dental implants, but not much more than your normal cleaning routine.
Ultimately, the decision between dentures and dental implants comes down to what is best for you in the long term. To set up an appointment with Dr. Edward B. Miller call us today at 972-298-6131.
