Dentures versus Dental Implants: What?s the Best Choice?

Posted by maryleboneimplant on January 16th, 2013

In a recent survey about the overall dental health of people living in the UK, it’s estimated that 1 in 5 people suffer some sort of oral hygiene issue like tooth decay or cavities. The same report stated that 75% of the people have had some sort of dental restoration performed on them and another 69% of people have at least one tooth missing. The same statistics showed that over 20% of adults over the age of 65 have all of their teeth missing!

Another fact that some people may not realise is that the average adult should have 32 teeth, but 19 is the average number of teeth that most people who are 65 years of age or older have. This means that they have almost half of their teeth missing by this age and most of them are looking for a solution for this problem. For most, this means getting fitted for dentures, but did you know that people of all ages could easily qualify for dental implant?

Here we are going to compare four benefits of dental implants versus dentures to help you decide.


Did you realise that dental implants are placed into the bone permanently which gives you the feeling of having your original teeth in place? Dentures are removable and can slip out of place.


Implants not only feel like your real teeth, they also look like natural teeth as well. Many in the dental industry refer to them as a “third set of teeth”. Dentures can appear unnatural over time and make the person wearing them appear older.


dental tooth implant are said to be more comfortable than dentures, allowing patients the ability to eat whatever they want without the fear that they might slip out of place. Dentures could irritate and pinch your gums causing you a lot of discomfort.


Implants will not harbor bacteria allowing it to grow inside of your mouth. They will also not decay over time if maintained properly. Dentures that improperly fit into your mouth may promote decay in and around your teeth.
