Farmington Hills, MI area dentist discusses dentures vs. dental implant restoration
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
DenturesThere are two types of dentures. Full dentures replace teeth in the entire dental arch. Partial dentures replace one or more teeth, using the existing teeth to hold them in place. Dentures are not a fixed restoration. They are removable, and must be cleaned and cared for daily. As the facial structure changes, patients will need to have their dentures readjusted for proper fit.
Dental ImplantsDental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. They are made of titanium, which is biocompatible with the body. These implants are permanent. A dentist places them and restores them on top with a crown, bridge, or full denture. Dental implants are sometimes used to stabilize conventional dentures that do not stay in place with dental adhesives and natural suction.
There is no one best solution for every patient, which is why Dr. Richard Bernstein provides a variety of methods to maintain beautiful smiles. Whether patients choose bridges, dentures, or dental implants, the best option is just an appointment away. Patients in the Farmington Hills, MI area are advised to speak with the doctor to learn which restorative treatment is most appropriate for their situation.
