Implants or Dentures?
Which one is better for me?
The answer is fairly simple. Implants are far better for patients who like to replace the lost teeth. The bigger issue is always the fees associated with the much more superior option of implants.
A permanent solution to replacing the natural teeth. The ability to preserve the youthfulness of the oral health and prevent further bone and tissue loss. They will be like your own teeth from within your own body.
Dental Implants are as strong as real teeth and once the teeth portion is attached to them then the natural feel and appearance as well as chewing ability will be restored to its form and function.

Why do so many people with dentures come back looking toward implants for more stability?
We find that more and more patients transition from their dentures and seek implant supported prosthetics and that they realize an amazing change in their quality of life influencing their emotional state, mood and happiness and attractiveness and youthful feel to the face improving and positively affecting relationships with their partners. Even average lifespan of implants surpasses dentures. in General patients can keep their implants for the rest of their lives.
Poor strength, no real chewing stability
Looks can be good but constant bone loss
