Which type of implant is best for you? Let’s take a look at a both of these types in a bit more detail so you can better understand the differences between the two.
With traditional implants, these are a great option for people who want to maintain the look and appearance similar to natural teeth by having each individual missing tooth replaced with its own separate implant. This option is also an ideal choice in cases where you might only be missing one, two, or a few teeth in different areas of the mouth.
With implant dentures, this option is more suited for people who want to replace all of their upper or lower teeth and are looking for a less expensive solution than individual implants. With implant dentures, they provide the appearance of natural teeth and behave in a similar manner. Unlike traditional dentures, which can slip, move, or even make it difficult to bite down or chew certain foods, implant dentures remain securely in place.
In fact, with both type of implants, you can enjoy your favourite foods! Since the teeth are held firmly in place and have an actual support structure underneath, it provides for strong and solid artificial teeth. You also do not have to worry about particles of food getting trapped underneath the teeth.
Furthermore, both types of artificial teeth replacement prevent problems with speech patterns that are sometimes a concern with traditional dentures. Since the implanted teeth, as well as implant dentures, are secured in place, you do not have to worry about your voice sounding funny or finding it difficult to make certain word sounds.
