Lost teeth inevitably need to be replaced. People in this position can sometimes feel overwhelmed with the options available for replacements. We at Langworthy Family Dentistry are here to help and would like to inform you of our dentures and dental implant options in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.
Over the years, implants have increased in popularity, and are a great replacement option for those who have suffered tooth loss due to accidents or gum disease. Since they look, feel, and act like your natural teeth, the only person who will be able to differentiate is your dentist.
However, implants can only be used if your gums and jawbones are healthy enough to support them. If your gums and jawbone are not able to support implants, dentures would be the next best choice.
Dentures are a great alternative for dental restoration. A pair of dentures may take some time to get used to, but they will prevent any of the side effects of tooth loss and also restore your smile.
Dentures require more upkeep than dental implants, but not much more than your normal oral care routine.
It’s important to keep in mind that there are no bad choices when it comes to tooth restoration; rather, it’s about only finding which is the best choice for you in the long-term.
