If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you are probably thinking about getting dental implants or dentures. At our dental practice, Hanson Place Dental, our Gowanus dentist will be happy to meet with you to examine your individual dental situation and determine which type of tooth replacement method will work best for you.
Our Gowanus dentist will explain that both types of tooth replacement options, dental implants, and dentures, have benefits and drawbacks. The decision will all come down to which tooth replacement option will work best for you in terms of your individual dental needs and preferences. Dental implants are preferred by many patients because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. However, dental implants can be extremely costly to get, and the entire dental implant processes many months. In order to get dental implants you also have to go through oral surgery during which time the titanium a dental implant root or roots are surgically inserted into your jawbone. You will also have to go through a healing process which will take many months. Dentures on the other hand only take several weeks to get, and they are much less costly. Our dentist will be able to provide you with dentures which are completely attractive and fully functional. However, many patients enjoy the stability that dental implants offer. Today, some patients get dental implants to secure the dentures so that they can chew and speak more securely with them in their mouth. There are actually many different types of tooth replacement options today, and our dentists will let you know which should work best for you.
