Crystal Lake denturesIf you have missing teeth and are searching for a solution, you're not alone. Nearly 20 million Americans use full or partial dentures to help maintain their dazzling smile. However, it's important to know when you should opt for this beneficial dental solution to ensure successful results.

Dental implants are often the first line of defense for addressing missing teeth, and it is one of the most effective options. However, this procedure isn’t for everyone. You may not be a good candidate for this treatment if you have dental or health issues, including:

  • You don’t have sufficient bone density to accommodate a bone implant
  • You have extensive oral health issues such as advanced signs of gum disease which might impact the ability of the implant to fuse properly with your jawbone
  • You have other health issues such as uncontrolled diabetes, cancer or cardiovascular disease

If you find that dental implants are not for you, or that you don't want to invest the time and money associated with this extensive procedure, then dentures are an effective alternative.

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Improve self-confidence
