Dentures are a traditional option for those seeking to replace missing teeth. They consist of a set of artificial teeth that are attached to a removable plastic or metal frame that sits on top of the gums. Dentures can be full or partial, depending on the number of teeth being replaced.
At HKS Dental, we offer both dental implants and dentures, and our experienced team can help you make an informed decision based on your specific needs and goals. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our dental implant and denture options.
Dental implants are surgically placed artificial tooth roots that are anchored into the jawbone. They provide a sturdy base for replacement teeth and can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants offer several benefits, including improved oral function, a natural-looking appearance, and improved self-esteem.
Dentures, on the other hand, are removable artificial teeth that are placed on top of the gums. They are often used to replace multiple teeth or an entire arch of missing teeth. Dentures can be made of various materials, including acrylic and porcelain, and can be customized to match the patient’s natural teeth.
In general, dental implants tend to be a better long-term solution for tooth replacement because they offer greater stability and can last for many years with proper care. However, dental implants are often more expensive than dentures, and the placement process can be lengthy and require multiple appointments.
Dentures, on the other hand, are typically less expensive than dental implants and can be made relatively quickly. They also do not require surgery and can be a good option for patients who are not good candidates for dental implants due to oral health issues or budget constraints.
