New life was designed to be able to offer full mouth reconstructive dentistry at a lower cost than our competitors. Most people exploring this option will pick one of the following, here is a closer look at the differences between dentures vs dentures with implants.
Main differences between dentures vs implants with dentures:
|Dentures without Implants||Implant Retained Dentures|
|A lowercost alternative in the short term.||Implants, when taken care of, are proven to last a lifetime.|
|Bone loss after extractions; causing shrinkage of the bone and need for more relines.||Bone perseveration.|
|Creams will be needed to provide additional hold.||No need for adhesive.|
|Dentures shift; limiting some foods.||Improved function and comfort.|
|Denture movement often cause sore sports.||Stronger and more stable – acts more like natural teeth.|
|Gives approximately 30% of your original biting force.||Gives approximately 75% – 85% of your original biting force.|

Benefits of implants
The benefits of implants are very clear. Patients will have better support and stability which equals improved function and comfort. Imagine being able to eat some of your favorite foods again.
Many Dentists fail to inform you of certain bone loss after extraction which limit your option to place implants in the future. Poorly fitted dentures will wear on the gum tissue and cause bone loss to occur faster. Implants can prevent a patient from losing bone.
What does bone loss mean?
Teeth are supported by the bone in the jaw and then surrounded by gum tissue. When we lose teeth, we lose that supporting bone around the teeth, resulting in bone loss. When placing implants, we try to utilize all the surrounding bone. The best time to place an implant is at the time of extraction, In this way, we are able to utilize the available bone you have, this allows us to place the biggest implant possible in this area. Bigger implants equal more strength and insurance that will last the rest of your life.
How we are different
We are different than general dentists because of our passion for implants. We love what we do and we have changed hundreds of patients’ lives with implants. We recognize the need for implants and their ability to last forever if taken care of. We believe that implants should be a standard of care and made more affordable to fit into everyone’s budget.
