If You Have Missing Teeth, Talk to Your Dentist About Dentures or Implants

Posted .

Dental restoration can bring back the use of lost teeth and it very important such treatments are sought out. Making a decision on what type of restoration to use can be difficult. This is why we at Columbia Dental Excellence are here to tell you about the dental implants and dentures we offer in Columbia, Maryland.

Dental implants look, function, and feel just like your real teeth. After they are installed, only your dentist will be able to tell the difference implants and your natural teeth. Dental implants have become increasingly popular over the years and have been especially effective in helping those who’ve lost teeth due to gum disease.

Implants cannot be installed in cases where the jawbone offers little support due to poor health. If your gum or jawline has suffered a loss in health as a result of gum disease, dentures would probably be the better restoration.

Despite their drawbacks, dentures are a great way for you to restore your teeth. Dentures will not only bring back your smile but also negate the side effects that come from tooth loss. The adjustment period when you first get your dentures is worth it to save your smile.

Implants require less upkeep than dentures, but dentures require not much more effort compared to your normal routine.

The decision you and Dr. Avi Mizrachi will come to will depend on which restoration will best benefit you in the long-term. Please call Columbia Dental Excellence today at 410-381-0505 to set up an appointment!
