Dentures and bridgework are both avenues of restoring missing teeth, however, those are not the only restorative dentistry options. Dental implants also provide a great way to replace missing teeth. Every day, more and more people are choosing to use dental implants to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. Bridgework and dentures can look nice, and with new technology and materials in the dental field, they can look very natural. However, dental implants have advanced to the point where it can be difficult to tell an implant from a natural tooth. Dental implants are particularly desirable when only one tooth needs to be replaced.
Implants can also be used to provide abutments for dental bridges and stabilize dentures. There is no need for a partial denture with dental implants. Full dentures are more stable. A locking mechanism is used to hold the denture in place. This eliminates the need to use adhesive pastes or powders to keep your dentures from moving. It also means there is no chance of your dentures falling out or becoming dislodged while speaking or eating.
