Are Implants Better Than Dentures?

Two of our most popular cosmetic treatments are implants and dentures. Both treatments can achieve a fantastic result that restores your confident smile, but this depends on what’s best for you. “We will offer a solution that can achieve the perfect smile you can be confident with.”Dr David Bloom

At a Glance

For some people, implants are a better fit for treatment. However, for others, dentures would be the more suitable alternative.

Both treatments are excellent in their respect. The success and longevity of any treatment depend on the appropriateness of each treatment to the individual case.

They each become the proper treatment in the appropriate circumstances.

You can also choose to have dentures supported by implants. So you have implants placed in the jaw and a removable denture that fits securely on top.

The best way of choosing between dentures and implants is to look at the advantages of each treatment and see which you would prefer.

The Choice of Treatment Depends on:

The amount and quality of the bone levels in the jawbone. Bone density would be a deciding factor as to whether implants would be correct for you instead of dentures.

In most instances, there is good bone support which reduces the complexity of the treatment.

However, dentures may be your only alternative in situations where you don’t have enough bone, or you may need to consider an advanced treatment like bone grafting.

  • The Number of Missing Teeth: Implants can be a good option if you have only a few teeth missing. Many people find partial dentures challenging to cope with or don’t like the metal clasps used to retain the denture in the mouth.
  • The Level of Infection in Your Mouth:

    Your susceptibility to it also plays an important consideration in which treatment would be more appropriate for you. Your clinical examination will highlight this point for us.

You have two options:

  • A fixed option (one where you don’t take your teeth out)
  • A removable option (like a denture that you put in to eat and take out to clean)
If you don’t like the feeling of having mobile dentures in your mouth, then you may opt to choose implants.
On the other hand, a fixed option allows you to eat confidently and consume foods you previously could not. Implants involve surgical treatment and are an invasive procedure. Some people may not like this treatment and prefer a more straightforward option.

At The Perfect Smile, we understand that patients may be naturally nervous when thinking of undergoing dental implant surgery.

We want to reassure you that the dental implant treatment is not painful due to the proper use of local anaesthetics to numb the bone and gum deeply.

We can also use sedation techniques that also contribute to no pain or discomfort. More.

Treatment Plan
  • Step 1: We will start the process with a highly detailed and thorough comprehensive examination and assessment. We will then construct a customised treatment plan and design your implant treatment.
  • Step 2: An implantologist surgically places your new implant(s) in your mouth.
  • Step 3: We will assess your healing on this review appointment and make sure everything is going as planned.
  • Step 4: The dentist records and impressions to construct the implant’s top part (post and crown).
  • Step 5: The dentist will fit the final part of the implant (post and crown).
  • Step 6: Your final appointment allows you to have any further refining cosmetic enhancements or minor adjustments.


Fast Process

  • Minimal appointments: Unlike traditional dental implant surgery, you will need fewer appointments
  • No lengthy treatment time: The healing time is fast and effective, though individual to each person.
Bone Quality
  • When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone that holds the tooth in place will diminish in height, width, and volume. This may affect the immediate and final appearance of the gum tissue in this area and possibly the surrounding teeth.
  • The larger the width of bone or the height of the bone, the wider and longer implant can be. A wider and longer implant increases implant stability and thus success. We assess the bone height and width by taking digital radiographs or by taking a CT Scan. More.

Implant Costs

The price of a dental implant can depend on whether any further treatments are needed to make sure your implant is a success.
