Work practically the same as real teeth with improved chewing ability.
Look like real teeth in shape and colour.
Help prevent potential bite and jaw joint problems and even bone loss.
Feel natural and promote gum health.
Never need to be removed, and provide a durable, long-term solution.
Have a higher cost upfront but can save money that might be spent on future dental treatment.
Make it difficult to eat and chew the way you used to.
Can look natural if they’re well-made, but living without a more permanent solution can lead to bone loss and the “sunken face” look.
Don’t address most of the health risks associated with missing teeth.
Can be uncomfortable and often irritate gums.
Need to be taken in and out regularly for cleaning, and can be easy to lose.
Have a lower cost up front, but often result in future dental problems that cost much more to fix.
