Los Angeles, CA, Feb. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Los Angeles dental implants expert, Dr. Kevin Sands DDS, explains the advantages that implants offer compared to dentures in order to improve understanding among area patients. Some patients dislike certain features of traditional dentures, such as their tendency to slip during meals or conversation. In the long term, denture wearers may experience jaw bone deterioration because they lack tooth roots. Various oral health problems are also more likely to strike when tooth roots are missing, which remains an issue with traditional dentures.
Dental implants avoid some of the major issues associated with dentures. For example, their ability to replace the roots of teeth means that the jaw bone receives stimulation and retains its normal size and density. Because dental implants are firmly anchored, using them to stabilize dentures ensures that no slippage can occur. Dental implants also lack any hardware above the gum line, reducing risks of bacterial accumulation, tooth decay and periodontal disease. Understanding these differences can help patients make informed decisions as they choose between dental implants and dentures.
As more patients recognize the benefits of dental implants, more are asking about this option after they lose teeth. By getting dental implants immediately after losing teeth rather than waiting months or years, patients are less likely to suffer jaw deterioration, which can result in facial disfigurement. Improvements in dental implant design and the availability of mini dental implants have also increased popularity of dental implants compared to dentures. In addition, reduced treatment time and lack of necessity for bone grafting help make mini implants more appealing to patients. Cost of dental implants is easily justifiable with the benefits patients can achieve with dental implant placement.
