Which is a better choice for me, dental implants or dentures?
Price, Permanence, and Comfort for Dental Implants and Dentures
This will depend greatly on a number of factors. Most insurance companies will pay for dentures but may not fully cover dental implants. Dental implants do cost more than dentures, and for some people, this is an important consideration. Dental implants require an oral surgeon to place the titanium post while dentures are completely non-invasive. However, dental implants are a permanent solution that will blend right in with your own natural teeth while dentures and partials are meant to be removed for cleaning and soaking. Dentures will require adjustments to keep them fitting properly as the shape of your mouth changes over time and have been known to slip at the wrong moment. You may also find that dentures will limit the types of foods you can enjoy.
