There are certainly many challenges faced when wearing removable dentures. Even with well-fitted and expertly-made dentures, some patients may not be able to adapt to wearing them and will require dental implant treatment to assist with retention and/or support.
With the advent of dental implants and their superiority in comfort and functionality, dentures are generally only considered as a cost-effective alternative or in instances where dental implants may not be suitable.
A denture, or ‘removable prosthesis’, is a removable plate used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, whilst partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Yes! Dental implants can be used to support definitive bridges, eliminating the need for a denture. The cost is usually greater, but the implants and bridges bare closer resemblance to the feel of natural teeth. Dental implants are becoming the preferred alternative to dentures, but not everyone is a candidate for implants.
