Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Choosing how to restore your smile after experiencing a dental issue or tooth loss is a difficult decision. Here at Preston Commons Dental Care, we offer professional restorative treatments that can give you a beautiful, full smile in no time. In our Dallas, Texas office the two main restorative procedures we offer are dental implants and dentures.
Dental implants can individually replace as many teeth as you would like. A dental implant consists of two main parts; the implant itself and the tooth crown.
The implant itself is a surgical procedure that requires significant time and healing. To provide a stable foundation for the new tooth crown, a titanium rod is surgically placed into your jaw bone with tissue placed around it. Not only does the implant help support the tooth, but it also promotes health to your jaw bone and tissues thanks to stimulation through chewing and talking.
The tooth crown is an artificially made tooth that is tailored to the size and color of your natural teeth. Using a 3D model of your smile, we send measurements and details to a dental lab to make a custom porcelain tooth to fit your smile. The strong porcelain material allows your tooth to resist cavities and decay.
Overall, dental implants are usually the best option for a patient who has lost one or two teeth due to injury or decay. Patients who are losing teeth regularly due to age or other problems would most likely benefit from a full restorative solution, such as dentures.
Traditional dentures are made out of all artificial teeth and gum tissues that stay in place during daily functions. Each set of dentures is custom made to fit your mouth. By working closely with the dentist, you can discuss which characteristics you’re looking for in your dentures, and how they can best suit your specific needs.
With dentures, you can change your smile into something that requires very minimal attention and care. Each tooth is made out of porcelain, to ensure that the teeth can withstand daily pressure and wear.
If you are looking for a full smile restoration due to tooth loss or decay, dentures might be a great solution for you.
