Dental implants or dentures?
For years dentures have ruled the dental market for tooth restoration but with the growing popularity and knowledge of dental implants, dentures are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Dentures are a removable set of artificial teeth that is glued to the top of the gums or is sometimes held in place by metal framework. This leaves room for possibility of dentures coming loose, jaw bone and gums will continue to recess, and dentures require a lot of cleaning and maintenance to keep them for up to 7 or 8 years. With dental implants there is no worry about the implants coming loose, it stays right in place and requires no removal for cleaning. The maintenance is easy and efficient, as if they are your own teeth. Just remember to brush twice a day and floss at least once for your best oral health!
