Permanent Dentures

The Pros and Cons of Permanent Dentures

If you need a long-term solution for your dental issues such as replacing missing teeth, permanent dentures are mostly considered as one of the most effective methods. One of the reasons why permanent dentures are preferred is because they don’t slip, slide or pop out as it is always reported with temporary dentures. Temporary dentures were a stress to hold before permanent dentures came into place, as it was intimidating when you try to chew while your teeth are floating around your mouth and the degree of difficulty shoots right up. That is why permanent dentures became a terrific choice.There are about three types of permanent dentures but based upon the dental problem of the individual. Your denturist should be able to help you choose the right one for you, according to your situation.

Advantages

  • They are generally more stable compared to traditional dentures
  • Permanent dentures make it easy to eat foods and speak a lot more comfortably when compared to temporary dentures.
  • It is a less invasive process, hence a less post-operation discomfort and less healing time since it involves a shorter surgery.
  • They are long-lasting
  • With permanent dentures, the biting force is more evenly distributed.
  • They have less maintenance since you are not required to remove them to clean.

Daily Oral Activities

  • Generally, they give you a natural youthful look because they support facial features.
  • They require minimal dental implants
  • Unlike temporary dentures that are pre-prepared, permanent dentures are custom made to precisely fit your mouth. Therefore, they give you a natural look and an undisputed comfort.
  • They can be used as a solution for patients with very worn down jaws ridges. It is almost impossible for them to wear removable plates, but fixed dentures could be a great solution for them.
  • With permanent dentures, patients can eat, bite, talk, and smile with more confidence, without any fear that teeth may slip and slide when carrying on with their daily oral activities.

DISADVANTAGES

Possible Risks You May Have to Deal With

  • They are also relatively costly compared to removable dentures but in the long-run, it proves a better option than removable dentures.

Dental Infections

  • They may be faced with dental infections. It is important to note that permanent dentures involve a surgical process. Surgical processes if not well taken care of, your dental structure may be prone to infections, but this can be put away with regular dental hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups.

You could have a one tooth denture if you only need one tooth replaced, partial dentures if you need several teeth replaced or complete dentures if you need the whole set of teeth to be replaced. Whichever solves your problems well, it is the best for you. It is important to note that, permanent dentures are an alternative to temporary dentures and a chit chat with your dentist is essential to tell you if they are right for you.
