Choosing between dental implants and traditional dentures depends on a variety of factors. Some are health related, some are based on the needs of the patient, while others depend on the preferences of the patient.
The main difference between traditional dentures and implants is how they are anchored or placed in the mouth. Traditional dentures rest on the gumline, whereas dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone. The implant serves as the root for the dentures.
After dental implants, patients report fewer problems with speaking, smiling, and eating than do those with traditional dentures. This is due to the fact that implants do not slip or move around as traditional dentures can.
Removable dentures or those involving fixed bridgework may cause bone damage or make noise. Also, implants won't decay or need replacing like traditional dentures will, according to the Mayo Clinic.
