Three Reasons Dental Implants in Florida Are Better Than Dentures

At Elite Smiles, we get a lot of people wondering whether they should get dental implants or dentures. After all, dentures have been around for years and are well known as a way to fill in when teeth are missing. Unfortunately, dentures are also well known for being burdensome to wear, uncomfortable, and even obvious to others.

If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you may be anxious to get the gaps filled in with a natural feeling replacement. Doing so can help you chew, talk, and smile better. If you are a candidate for both dentures and dental implants in Jacksonville, you may wonder which solution is best for you. To help you with this decision, here are three reasons more patients are choosing dental implants:

  • More room to swallow. Dentures use a piece of plastic that adheres to the top of your mouth. This plastic gets in the way of your tongue and can make it difficult to perform normal functions, such as swallowing.
  • More room to talk. Talking can also feel more difficult with dentures. If the plastic piece used to adhere to the bottom of your mouth comes loose, it could end up flopping around while you speak creating a clicking noise.
  • Avoid having plastic floating in your mouth. Having a plastic piece in your mouth is not a natural feeling. With implants, the crown feels more natural, making it easier to chew, talk, and smile.

If you want to know more about the differences between dentures and implants, contact our St. Augustine cosmetic dentist, Dr. Freeman. He will sit down with you to discuss your personal situation and give you the best guidance for how to get a smile you love.
