If you have teeth that need to be replaced, you are probably thinking about getting either dental implants or dentures. At Londonderry Family Dentistry, we can provide you with either dental implants in Londonderry NH or dentures; our dentist, Dr. Jana Trnovsky, will be happy to discuss with you the benefits of dental implants versus dentures.
Dental implants in Londonderry NH are an extremely popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Once a dental implant procedure is completed, all the patient will need to do is to brush and floss regularly to take care of their dental implant. However, if you do get dentures, you will need to repeatedly remove the dentures from your mouth for cleaning, and to rest the gums. Dental implants are definitely a more convenient tooth replacement method, however, they are not best for everyone. In order to get dental implants, it is important that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to undergo the procedure. You will also need to have a dental implant root surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. When you get dentures, the health of your jawbone will not interfere with your ability to get dentures. Also, you will not need to undergo any type of dental surgery when getting dentures. Dentures can be obtained over several weeks, while the entire dental implant procedure can take many months. And due to the treatments involved, and the length of the treatment time, dental implants are usually much more costly than dentures. However, dental implants are such an excellent tooth replacement method, this treatment is often preferred by our patients. When a patient gets dental implants, it is as close as they can ever get to simply having their natural teeth returned.
