Dentures vs Dental Implants Manchester – The Pros And The Cons

In this post, we’re going to discuss the pros and cons of dentures Manchester vs.

If you’re one of the 35% of UK adults over 40 who have several or more missing teeth, the good news is that you have options open to you. You could of course do nothing (although for many reasons this isn’t advisable) or alternatively you could opt for missing teeth replacement.


At our  clinic we can help you to retain your smile, your confidence, and above all, your health, We do this by replacing missing teeth with full or partial dentures or with dental implants; but which is best? Let’s take a look at the pros and the cons.

Treatments

The first thing you’ll note about dental implants is that it involves quite a lengthy process and a degree of surgery, with treatment taking on average 5-9 months to complete. However conventional dentures can usually be measured, made, and fitted in as little as a week, What’s more they don’t require any form of surgery to fit.

Comfort

Initially modern-day conventional dentures in Manchester are more lightweight than their predecessors and are generally comfortable to wear. They do however take a few days to get used to and can often affect annunciation until you master wearing them. However the down side with conventional dentures is that as your jaw changes shape, your dentures will need adjusting, because if they become loose, they can slip and rub causing a certain degree of discomfort as well as embarrassment. Because dentures need continual adjustment, they will eventually need replacing. Implants, on the other hand, once secured directly into the jawbone, become a permanent feature in your mouth. Because of this, comfort is guaranteed and most people forget that they even have them.

Costs

When it comes to costs, whether you opt for dental implants in Manchester, Birmingham, or London, they don’t come cheap. The reason? They consist of high-grade titanium and state-of-the- art engineering to create the perfect life like tooth. Add to this the skill and training of the dentist needed to fit them, and the time taken, and it soon becomes apparent as to why costs are relatively high. Conversely, dentures, although precision-made are easily fitted without any specialised training and once made, can be attached within the hour, so they’re usually about a third cheaper than implants.

Longevity

You can expect a denture wearer to have to replace their dentures every 7-10 years, whereas dental implants (provided that they’re cared for properly) have been proven to last for forty years or more. That’s a lifetime for many people being fitted with them. Ultimately this means that although dentures are initially cheaper, because they will need frequent changing, they can work out more expensive in the long-term.

As you can see there are pros and cons to both and dental implants Manchester.
