Traditional fixed dentures give patients a sense of permanent tooth replacement. There is a high price to pay for this sense of permanence. Fixed dentures are hard to clean, prone to reoccurring dental problems, and difficult to repair. People who choose fixed dentures must be dedicated to maintaining their oral health through committed diligence.
Advantages Of Removable Dentures
Removable dentures can provide an alternative solution to tooth loss. Removable dentures are easier to clean and maintain. Removable dentures are generally less costly to produce, and can be made more quickly. Most importantly, removable dentures allow you the luxury to remove the dentures when you want. This gives you freedom from always feeling an artificial device being attached to your physical self. While being easy to care for, removable dentures offer the ability to smile and chew with confidence. There is no perfect answer for everyone, but removable dentures should be considered.
Drawbacks of Removable Dentures
Removable dentures are very likely to damage the surrounding teeth, whereas a fixed implant can restore the missing support that will help protect the remaining teeth. They are also not as stable as fixed dentures, and often require adjustment. Removable dentures are the least stable of dental restorations, easily loosened and often the cause of irritation and embarrassment. Dentures are also capable of causing further bone loss. With many dental implant options, all avenues of recovery should be explored for each patient to consider.
