If you have lost any teeth through trauma or neglect, you might find it difficult to make a decision on your next step. Missing teeth and gaps in your smile can be embarrassing, reduce your self-confidence, and lead to other dental problems. Eating and speaking become a challenge as well. The decision to either get dental implants or dentures doesn’t have to be a tough choice. Here’s a few options to help your decide:
Simply put, dental implants are equivalent to attending the ball in your finest garb and shaking hands with the brightest and best. Dental implants have become a signature smile restoration treatment that gives patients a new lease on life. They hold the keys to self-confidence, the ability to meet new people without the embarrassment about gaps in your smile, and the peace of mind that these natural-looking teeth replacements are in it for the long haul. Having one dental implant or several, is the creme de la creme. They deserve to be on display. Stepping out with your dazzling new smile and the success that goes along with it, dental implants are responsible for your newfound confidence.
There’s a misconception that dentures are solely for the older population. Granted, as people age and lose their teeth through the process of neglect or bad habits over the years, dentures have been at the forefront of tooth replacements. Because they are easy to clean and remove , restoring your smile with dentures is a wonderful option for people of all ages. Dentures can shatter the image of being only for the old folk. For anyone with missing teeth, dentures are one of the most popular options to consider.
