Dentures exist in 2 varieties - full and partial. Full dentures replace a full jaw of missing teeth whilst partial dentures replace several missing teeth across the jaw.
Implants provide a strong, stable and long lasting replacement for missing single or multiple teeth cases up to full jaw tooth replacement.
Dentures can be used to replace single to large segments of missing teeth.
Depending on the needs, a denture can be used as a short term tooth replacement (when implants are being placed) or as a long term solution (when implants or other prostheses are not recommended).
Dentures can be made entirely from acryclic, or with metal components to help with strength and even from flexible materials for added comfort and aesthetics.
Dentures are designed to be removed to facilitate cleaning and allow the gums to rest and repair.
Dental implants are a great way to replace single or multiple missing teeth and can even be used to replace an entire set of teeth.
A minor surgical procedure is involved to place the implant in the bone followed by a crown/bridge/denture at a later stage.
Implants have very good lifespans and can be a very cost effective way of replacing teeth in the long term.
