Dental Implants Or Dentures? Deciding Which Is Right For You

How dental implants or dentures from your dentists in Brownsville, TX, can give you a new smile

If you are missing teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as you can. Fortunately, there are a few options for tooth replacement, each with its own benefits.

Drs. Claudia Rodriguez, J. Patrick Pirtle, and M. Raquel Muniz at Lower Valley Dental Associates in Brownsville, TX, offer comprehensive dentistry, including dental implants and dentures, to give you a new smile.

You need a complete smile because when you have all your teeth you will:

  • Chew your food better, which helps your digestion and your overall health
  • Look more attractive, because a beautiful smile is what people notice
  • Feel better about yourself, because you know you look your best

Let’s look at a comparison between two of the most popular tooth replacement options, dental implants, and dentures:

Dental implants offer important benefits like these:

A natural look, because the dental implant crown is made of materials that look just like natural tooth structure

Convenience, because you never have to remove dental implants

Easy maintenance, because you can brush and floss dental implants just like natural teeth

Dentures also offer some great benefits like these:

Budget-friendly, because dentures are relatively inexpensive when compared to other tooth replacement options

Attractive, because dentures are made of lifelike, high-quality materials

Easy to clean, because you remove your dentures at night and brush them with a denture brush before soaking them at night

You can also have the best of both worlds by choosing an implant-supported denture. You will have between 4 and 6 dental implants placed, and the denture is snapped in place on top of the implants. Implant-supported dentures are completely stable and help to conserve the bone in your jaw.

Tooth replacement is an important decision and one you shouldn’t make alone. Your dentist can help you make the right choice.

To learn more about the benefits of dentures and dental implants, call Drs. Claudia Rodriguez, J. Patrick Pirtle, and M. Raquel Muniz at Lower Valley Dental Associates in Brownsville, TX. You can reach them in the office by calling (956) 350-0059, so call now!
