Why are dental implants better than dentures?

Are you looking for a new smile? You may be weighing up your options between dental implants and dentures. Sydney Dental Aesthetics and Implants have put together some important points to consider, so that you can make the right choice for you.

You can just have implants

Dentures require you to take out them out and soak them overnight, wash them after you eat, clean your mouth after you take your dentures out and clean them. Dental implants are just there! Don’t get us wrong, they require care, but similar care to normal teeth. Implants offer a less-fuss option compared to dentures.

Implants offer a healthier mouth

With dental implants being placed into your jawbone, they stimulate your mouth and jaw, allowing your jawbone to grow more healthy jawbone tissue. Dentures don’t stimulate your jawbone, and this can lead to jawbone shrinkage, which puts you at more risk of losing more teeth. When you choose dental implants, you help to further keep your mouth healthy.

Implants last longer

Dentures tend to last around five to eight years before they need replacing! Your mouth will change shape and they will wear out. Here at Sydney Dental Aesthetics and Implants we only use premium, scientifically approved and rigorously tested implant systems to make sure that your implants last as long as possible. With the right oral hygiene and care, patients see implants that last a lifetime, with some patients lasting more than 40 years!

Dentures can fall out!

Imagine this: you are eating at one of Sydney’s fine dining restaurants when your teeth fall out! It’s the stuff nightmares are made of. Implants will help put a stop to this, as the implant is placed into your jawbone. Our implants become part of your body rather than something you put into your body.

Implants are just like your natural teeth. They look the same. They feel the same. They function the same. You’ll be able to eat whatever you want! You’ll be able to live a normal life with implants.
