One of the most frustrating things about being a human being is making decisions. Sometimes, even the simplest of decisions can be extremely overwhelming. This is especially true when having to make a choice when it comes to how to replace missing teeth. Every patient wants to make the “right decision,” but they don’t have all of the facts needed to make an informed decision.
That is why we’re on the case! We will get the evidence to you in a thorough and unbiased manner. Our goal: helping you to finally solve the case of the missing tooth.
For many people, dentures can be a great option to replace missing teeth. However, that doesn’t mean they’re perfect. Let’s consider some of the pros and cons of dentures.
The light side of dentures: Dentures – whether partial or complete – are ultimately the most cost-effective option. And, this is why most patients go this route when determining how to treat their missing teeth. Insurance companies are more likely to cover dentures because of the cheaper cost, and will often partially cover replacement costs every five years or so. Dentures can be comfortable, and with a skilled dental technician they can be made to look like beautiful, natural teeth.
More and more insurance companies are starting to cover implants and dentures with an implant foundation.
Implant dentures are extremely comfortable, look and feel like real teeth, and there is little if any bone loss. The down-side of implants is the cost and the time it takes to go through the implant surgery, healing time, and restoration process.
We totally understand how overwhelming and even frustrating it can be to make a major dental decision. There are so many things to consider: the cost, the time, the short-term perks, and the long-term benefits.
That’s why we invite patients to contact us to discuss the pros and cons of both options. No matter how many missing teeth they have, we can help them find the option that is best for their specific needs.

If you are considering getting dentures, or you need denture repair, you should consider the benefits of having a dentist provide you with safe, good-fitting dentures.
One of the main reasons is that older dentures are made with metals, and some people have allergic reactions to those metals. As more people and dentists have decided to replace old mercury fillings with white fillings, the same concern about metal has spilled over into the denture sphere. Now more people are looking for safer dentures, and more non-metal options are available.
