Choosing Dental Implants or Dentures

dental implants or dentures

When you lose teeth as an adult, it can be quite alarming, and in some cases, it can feel devastating. Whether you have lost teeth because of damage or because of neglect, you do not want to go through the rest of your life with gaping holes in your smile. You want to find restorative dentistry options that can help you. However, you might be confused as to whether you should have dental implants or dentures. Which one is right? Take the time to learn a bit about both options, and then speak with the dentists in Overland Park to help you with your decision.

Modern Dentures

In the past, it is true that dentures had some issues. They were not always reliable and they could slip out of place when talking or eating. The modern dentures of today are a different story though. They tend to be very high quality whether you need partial dentures or full dentures. Today’s dentures are quite strong and durable, and they look far more realistic than the dentures of the past.

Dental Implants

The other option that could be right for you is dental implants. They have been around for a long time, but the technology and techniques have improved substantially in recent years. They can provide you with natural looking teeth that are quite strong and that can last for decades. For those who are missing just a few teeth, this could be a good option to consider.
