There’s no need to go through life with missing teeth. False teeth or dentures are the most common alternative which people choose. Though it may be good as well as cheaper than having dental implants, dentures are not ideal for everyone despite the improved quality over years and years of development. Dentures are not securely placed on your gums and might fall off anytime. What you have to do is to place denture adhesive to prevent this from happening. Someone with dentures may also experience discomfort when eating or speaking. Dentures promote infection and decay in other teeth if they aren’t fitted properly. If this happens, then you are going to be in need of a tooth filling on the abutment or adjoining tooth. Hence, dentures are given to those who have an already weak jaw and unhealthy gums.
Another way of fixing missing teeth is through surgically placing dental implants. These are only done to those still having healthy jaw and gums. Because dental implants are directly rooted on your jaw bone then there is a great possibility that you still can retain the usual function you had when you still have your natural teeth. If you could maintain good oral hygiene, dental implants can last for 20 years or more. You are not going to be of need of any replacement. You will not worry about your implanted teeth falling off. These are the reasons why when thinking over the choice between dental implants vs. dentures, there are many cons when you restore your teeth using dental implants.
