A. Disadvantages of removable prostheses (Denture)

  • Removable prostheses decreases the bite force significantly
  • Ability to chew is compromised with removable prosthesis, often causing GI disorders

  • Attachment teeth of removable prosthesis can have increased mobility, plaque, bleeding and cavities
  • Embarrassment from loose prosthesis
  • Decrease of supporting bone
  • Sore spots

A. Advantages of Implant-Supported Prostheses (Denture)

  • Bone loss is prevented
  • Able to restore and maintain height and support of facial structures
  • Preserve the integrity of facial esthetics
  • No unsightly clasps or hooks
  • Elimination of denture adhesives
  • Improved taste of food
  • Esthetic improvement
  • Improved speech
  • Improved biting force
  • Improved chewing efficiency
  • Improved function of prostheses
  • Smaller prosthesis/restoration
  • Improved stability and retention of prosthesis
  • Increased lifetime of prosthesis
  • Elimination of need to alter adjacent teeth
  • More permanent replacement
  • Improved psychological health

Q. Do you want an alternative to removable dentures/bridges?

A. Dental implants may be the way to go! Implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. They are anchored directly into the jaw bone, so you can eat, speak and chew normally. The best part is, you will not even be able to tell they are “false teeth!”
