    8 Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants Over Removable Dentures

    December 1, 2017

    If you have missing teeth, chances are that you have thought about dental implants. But they are so expensive. Shouldn’t you just use dentures instead? Below are eight benefits of choosing dental implants over dentures.

    An Improvement in Appearance

    A dental implant looks and feels like real teeth. Since they’re made to fuse to bone and they are permanent.

    An Improvement in Speech

    If you have dentures that fit poorly, your teeth often slip in your mouth and make you slur words or mumble. A dental implant lets you speak and not have to worry about teeth slipping.

    An Improvement in Comfort

    Since a dental implant becomes a part of your body, they aren’t uncomfortable like the removable dentures.

    Easier to Eat

    It’s hard to chew when your dentures are sliding all over the place. Implants will function just like teeth and let you eat food without pain and with confidence.

    An Improvement in Self-Esteem

    When you have dental implants, they can give your smile back to you. This helps you feel a lot better about the way you look.

    An Improvement in Oral Health

    When you have a dental implant put in, your other teeth don’t have to be reduced like tooth-supported bridges. Since nearby teeth aren’t altered for supporting the implant, a lot more of the natural teeth in your mouth will be left intact. This means your oral health is improved long-term. An individual implant also allows you to access in between your teeth which also improves oral hygiene.


    Implants are extremely durable and they’re able to last a long time. If you take care of them properly, they can even last the rest of your life.


    When you have removable dentures, you have to remove them and use messy adhesives for keeping them in. With implants, this is no longer the case.

    These are the eight reasons why a lot of people choose dental implants rather than choosing dentures. Although they are expensive, they can last a lot longer and they help with improving your self-esteem.
