Dental Implants Q & A
Dental Implants vs. Dentures it’s a common question that needs some clarification. Dental implants are a today’s answer to fixing missing teeth. An implant is permanently fixed in the mouth where a denture can be taken out and is affixed by glue’s. A standard denture of the past was made of bone or ivory or porcelain and today plastic has been added to make dentures a bit more comfortable. Many patients come to our office complaining of pain, discomfort and slippage when wearing their dentures. The most comfortable, naturally looking solution is to get a dental implant. It will make you confident in your smile!
Statistics show that 69 percent of adults between the ages of 35 – 44 have lost at least 1 tooth due to: gum disease, a root canal gone bad, tooth decay or an accident. As adults reach the age of 74, approximately 26 percent will have lost all of their permanent teeth.
