Dentures or Dental Implants?
What is the Difference?
Dentures and Dental Implants are two very different kinds of dental health solutions. Both have pros and cons and concluding which is better for you is essential for your dental health plan. Which one should you consider, though?
Dentures are prosthetic devices designed to be supported by hard and soft tissue where your teeth used to be. You can get these both in full or partial dentures, ensuring that your current teeth are kept.
Both removable and permanent options are available

non-permanent varieties cannot stay in while you sleep

Not as natural as implants
Dental implants are a far more permanent solution to any missing teeth and are often considered the best option for getting your smile back. This process gives you durable, efficient teeth that can be cleaned and tended to without issues for the rest of your life—helping you eat what you like.
