You’re sitting down for lunch with a potential new client when it strikes you that you’re not sure what to order. One of your teeth is missing, and while it’s in the back of your mouth and not as noticeable as a front tooth, it makes chewing and eating a challenge. Especially in front of someone you just met! You sigh and resign yourself to eating another bowl of soup. Did you know that there are solutions for missing teeth, whether it’s just one or multiple teeth that you’re missing? Here’s what you can expect from a denture or dental implants in Edison and what the differences between them are.
Dentures Replace Multiple Missing Teeth
A denture is a removable appliance that is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. Today’s dentures offer an appealing natural look as our dentists take into consideration your facial structure and skin tone when designing them.
Dentures in Edison rely on a secure fit and suction to stay in place, and there is a bit of a learning curve as you’re first getting used to eating and talking with them. Patients do appreciate the way a denture immediately restores their smile and changes the appearance of their face.
How Dental Implants Restore Your Smile
A dental implant is an ideal solution for restoring missing teeth because they closely mimic your natural tooth. Your root is replaced with a biocompatible titanium post that integrates with your bone and creates a firm foundation for your new tooth, which is a porcelain crown.
By replacing your root, it protects your bone from resorbing, or deteriorating, and keeps it stimulated and healthy, while also delivering longevity. Replacing your tooth keeps your healthy teeth from shifting into the open space and ensures that you enjoy all the function you had with your natural tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to support dental prosthetics such as dentures or a dental bridge, which means that patients missing multiple teeth can also enjoy the benefits that implants offer. A few implants are strategically placed into your jawbone and we’ll customize your denture to fit into those implants, which will hold it securely in place and ensure there is no movement or slippage when you talk or eat.
