Dentures Vs Dental Implants
When a full set of teeth requires replacement there are few viable options, the most frequently used are dentures or dental implants. This can replace a full set of top teeth, a full set of lower teeth, both the top and lower teeth, or portions of the above.
While a set of dentures can be removed for cleaning, dental implants are permanently implanted within the gums and fuse to the jawbone. It is important to discuss with your dentist which choice is right for you.

Benefits of Dentures
For an option that allows removal for cleaning every night and that can be altered over time, a set of dentures is ideal. They are made from a mould of the mouth and shaped to resemble the original teeth where possible. They can be created in a shade of white that matches what the patient is used to, and the appliance is shaped to fit snugly but comfortably within the mouth.
Often worn immediately these can be created before remaining teeth are extracted and ready for the day of the procedure. Ongoing maintenance includes removing for cleaning regularly, they can be brushed and soaked in a denture cleaner overnight for best results.
When food is stuck they can be removed to fix the issue and then returned to the mouth after cleaning, and the gums can be rinsed with salt water or brushed with a gentle bristle brush to maintain their health.

Benefits of Dental Implants
The decision on which solution is best is dependent on each individual situation. When replacing one tooth a dental implant or bridge can be used, but when it becomes many teeth together or a full set there are really only two options, the dentures or dental implants. For a removable solution that can be cleaned and soaked as needed the dentures might be the best fit, but for those that want a permanent solution that stays in all the time and is treated like regular teeth the implants may be the best choice.
