Are dental implants better than traditional dentures?

It’s important to recognize that every patient’s needs and desires are different, which is why we’ll never recommend a treatment until we’ve had a chance to examine your mouth and speak with you about your health history and smile goals. However, we often recommend dental implants over traditional prosthetics because they offer a wide range of benefits that make them a popular choice among our patients.

How do I know if I have gum disease?

  • Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing

  • Chronic bad breath, also known as halitosis
  • Loose teeth as a result of bone deterioration
  • Redness and inflammation affecting the gums
