Dentures vs Dental Implants: Which is Right For You?, Monroe, New York

There’s no need to go through life feeling self-conscious about your smile. At Hudson Valley Dental Care: Lawrence Gilbert, DDS, patients will receive expert care in a comforting atmosphere that will give them the ability to smile with confidence. 

Statistics from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons show that nearly 70% of adults aged 35 to 44 years old in the US have at least one missing tooth. Whether you're missing one tooth or several, with today’s technological and surgical advances, there are many alternatives to showcasing a healthy smile, including dental implants and dentures.

A dental implant is a tooth replacement surgically implanted into the jawbone for patients with healthy gums and jaws and good oral hygiene. A popular choice for both people who are missing a few teeth or all their teeth, dental implants are safe procedures that utilize titanium cylinders, which bond to the jawbone. Small posts are then attached, which serve as the anchors for the artificial teeth. 

Dentures, on the other hand, are false teeth fitted for the mouths of patients who have lost their teeth due to disease or tooth decay. Secured with a dental bonding or adhesive, dentures are often the best choice for people whose gums and jaws are weak or unhealthy. Both partial and complete dentures are available. 

At Hudson Valley Dental Care: Lawrence Gilbert, DDS, your teeth can stay protected and healthy while your smile shines brightly. For more information on whether dental implants or dentures are right for you, call (845) 783-8326, or visit the practice's website for more information.
