When Dental Implants are not the solution….
Dec 30, 2014
In these times of high tech and modern dentistry, many people choose to replace missing teeth with dental implants. However, not everyone is suitable for implants. There may be many reasons why your dentist may advise that they are not for you,
- Lack of suitable bone to fix the implants into,
- Ongoing gum problems and gum disease,
- Unlikely to be able to tolerate surgery.
So what are the alternatives available when it seems like the options are limited?
For most in the above situations you would probably think that the only alternative is to consider dentures, in fact you are probably using this method now to replace your missing teeth.
Conventional dentures also have their limitations though. They can,
- Feel bulky
- Move during eating and talking
- Generally make you feel less confident.
