Dental implants are built from titanium, which is friendly to the body and merges well with the jaw bone. Dentures are built from various plastic materials and metal, which aren’t as compatible and can irritate the gums.
They mimic human tooth roots by fusing right into the jaw bone to provide strong, stable teeth that function just as well as real ones. Dentures lack stability because they sit on top of the gum line, slip and create spaces that cause clicking when talking or eating. Dentures also make chewing difficult, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies for some.
They perform like real teeth and stimulate the jaw bone to keep it healthy and strong. Dentures never make contact with your bone but instead rest on top of the gum line, increasing risk of bone deterioration.
Dental implants last forever if you take good care of them. Dentures eventually fade, which places added stress on the gums and jaw bone. In time, dentures become worn and patients need to be refitted with replacements.
