Which choice is right for you?
Implants are a great solution for missing teeth whether you’ve had a single tooth or multiple teeth extracted. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, allowing the jaw and the implant to grow together; the entire process usually takes between six and eight months. Implants are a permanent way to restore function and aesthetics. If you prefer removable dentures instead, these can be customized as a full denture or partial denture depending on how many natural teeth are still present. The decision between implants and dentures depends on several factors, including how many teeth you are missing, what your budget is, and what your personal preferences are. Your dentist will go over all your options to help you decide what course of treatment best suits your individual needs.
