When considering the choice between dentures or dental implants patients have many options to choose from with the dental technology available today. More and more patients that have used full or partial dentures are discovering that dental implants can provide better function and aesthetics than the standard removable appliances. Dr. Jonathan Tiger can perform an evaluation to help you determine what options may be best for you when considering the function and the dental implant cost in Pomona, NY.
Standard removable dentures are often unstable and tend to slide or move around when eating or speaking. This causes clicking noises and is detrimental to the supporting bone and proper nutrition. An unstable denture puts uneven pressure on the bone beneath, causing it to resorb or deteriorate. Chewing is the first step to proper digestion; with ill-fitting dentures it is difficult to chew effectively and proper nutrition is negatively affected.
Dentures or partial dentures are used when many or all of the teeth are missing. They will need to be replaced or refitted over time due to the deterioration of the bone supporting the appliance. Most of the materials used in making dentures and partial dentures are not compatible with the body and can cause tissue irritation.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Titanium, used for implants, is compatible with the body and actually fuses to the surrounding bone. This integration with the bone prevents deterioration of the supporting bone structure.
Dental implants are much like the natural root of a tooth providing stability. A denture stabilized with implants functions more like your natural teeth. Without the slipping and sliding you can eat and speak more naturally. The ability to chew properly greatly increases your ability to properly digest the nutrients your body needs.
The benefits that dental implants provide can help you with your decision to have dentures or dental implants to replace missing teeth. Not all patients are candidates for dental implants. A complete evaluation and consultation with Dr. Tiger can help with your decision.
Research has shown long term success with dental implants. As with your natural teeth, good oral hygiene is important to the success of dental implants.
