If you have missing teeth, you have several options to choose from when it comes to restoring your smile and improving your overall oral health. Dr. Strout of Advanced Periodontics and Implant Surgery specializes in Teeth Xpress® for patients in your predicament. Learn more about them compared to dentures.
Improve Your Life and Your Smile
While dentures are most certainly an option for replacing missing teeth, they aren’t without their disadvantages. By talking to a periodontist about Teeth Xpress, you’ll learn that your new dental implants will have little need for you to have bone grafting to restore your teeth. Bone grafting takes longer and adds to the cost of restoring your oral health. Additionally, you’ll heal faster between the surgery and the actual tooth replacement. There are also more overall options with dental implants.
Advantages for Those With Dental Implants and Missing Teeth
While dentures are a great way to hide the fact that you have teeth missing, they most certainly aren’t without their disadvantages. For instance, dentures don’t have the overall appearance of real teeth when compared to implants. You might also not like how much money and time is required to clean dentures.
Your dentures might also occasionally slip, which is not only embarrassing, but can also make it hard for you to eat and drink comfortably. Food that becomes trapped in your dentures has the chance to lead to gum disease, and your natural teeth could be weakened as well if you wear partial dentures.
If your missing teeth aren’t immediately noticeable and you decide to leave them as-is without dentures or implants, the gap can compromise your oral health and weaken the structure of your jaw
