If you have lost any of your teeth, it’s very important that you replace them. We know it can be difficult to find the right type of restoration for your needs and that’s why we at Dental Arts of Catoosa in Catoosa, Oklahoma would like to discuss the benefits of dental implants and dentures. Here’s how they can help.
Implants function the same as your regular teeth. Their design blends them in with your regular teeth, and no one besides your dentist will know you are wearing them. Implants have become increasingly popular, especially with those who’ve lost teeth due to gum disease.
It’s important to note that implants can’t be inserted in cases where the gums and jaw line have lost health as a result of injury or gum disease. They may not be able to offer the support dental implants need. In such cases, dentures are the best restoration.
Dentures are often negatively portrayed on TV, but there is little truth to the stereotypes. Even though it takes time to get used to wearing them, dentures are a great way to restore your smile and will protect your oral health from any negative impacts of tooth loss.
Dentures require more maintenance compared to implants, but not much more than your normal oral care.
To find out which restoration would be right for your situation, call us today at 539-204-9977 to set up an appointment with Dr. Soren Michaelsen.
