Our Gillette WY dental office has spent years helping patients overcome their issues with missing teeth. It’s a problem that can decrease your oral health and overall health. Missing teeth can also be embarrassing and have profound negative effects on your personal life.
That’s why we have invested the time and resources to providing great solutions for your missing teeth. Dentures and dental implants are the two most common tooth replacement options. Not every patient understands the difference between dentures and dental implants.
Take a second to review the photos below. The picture below shows standard removable dentures. This type of restoration has been used in dentistry for years. The problem with removable dentures is that they are not fixed to the teeth. This makes it difficult to eat the food you want. Many dentures wearers feel the appliances slip or slide in the mouth while they are eating or even speaking.
Now take a look at the picture of the dental implant. Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed in the jawbone. Once the implants merge with the jawbone, they can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures. With dental implants, you can eat whatever you want. And best of, you don’t have to worry about your dentures sliding around in your mouth!
We understand that missing teeth can be a hassle and emotional issue. To fix your missing teeth, call our office today at 307-622-1311 to schedule a visit.
