Having missing teeth is a major problem. It affects the way we eat, speak, and even act in our personal and professional lives. If you have come to a point that you need tooth replacement options, you need to understand your options.
At North Oaks Dental in Royal Oak Michigan, we a number of ways to replace your missing teeth. Two common solutions are dentures and dental implants. There is an important difference from dentures and dental implants. Dentures rest on the gums, while dental implants are placed into the bone and are nearly as strong as natural teeth.
Just take a look at the images below. The dentures (left) rest on the gums and are not secured to the jawbone. The implants, however, are placed into the bone and act just like the root of a natural tooth. While implants are the strongest option, the right option depends on your expectations and goals.
