Why are Dental Implants a Better Choice Than Dentures?

Missing teeth are not only unhealthy for your mouth. They can also impact on your overall health and self-esteem.

If you’re missing teeth, there’s no reason to be embarrassed. Tooth loss is fairly common, not just for the elderly but younger individuals as well.

If you are missing one or more teeth, you might be weighing your decision between dental implants and dentures. Dental implants are definitely the best tooth replacement option as they are far superior to dentures.

Reasons why dental implants are a better choice than dentures

More natural

Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth. You can enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking healthy smile with dental implants.

Eat the foods you love

Steak, corn on the cob, crusty bread – these can all be a challenge for people with dentures. Anything with nuts or seeds can also be a problem for denture wearers.

With dental implants, you can continue to enjoy all the foods you love with a full set of healthy natural teeth. If you’ve given up foods over the years because of poor dental health, you can look forward to enjoying those foods again. So, bite into that juicy steak again with dental implants!

Easy maintenance

Dentures can be a bit of a pain to clean. You start with brushing them every night before bed. And you have to remember to brush your gums under the dentures. Then remember to put your dentures in to soak overnight. Oh, and don’t forget to clean your dentures after every meal to help maintain the seal and keep them from smelling.

With dental implants, all you have to do is treat them like natural teeth. Brush, floss, and see your dentist regularly.

Last longer

When you take good care of your dental implants, they can last much longer than dentures. Dr Dean Licenblat, our Sydney dental implant expert dentist at SDAI, uses premium material to ensure your dental implants, if well cared for, last for the long term.

Won’t fall out

Dental implants are secured in your jawbone, just like natural teeth, whereas dentures are not secured. With dental implants you never have to worry about them falling out while speaking or laughing in social situations.

Fewer dental visits

Dental implants lead to fewer visits to the dentist because they’re easier to maintain compared to dentures.
