At GPS Dental, we want to make sure our patients always have strong and healthy smiles. It’s so important to our daily lives that we can smile, eat, and talk with confidence.
If you’re missing teeth, those daily tasks can become a challenge; however, we can help you restore your smile. While keeping your natural teeth is always the number one option, sometimes replacement options are needed to restore and maintain a healthy smile. We can help you decide which of our tooth replacement options, implants, dentures, or implant-supported dentures, is best for you and your smile goals.

- Tooth Replacement: Choosing Between Dental Implants and Dentures
Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants can fix multiple teeth, a single tooth, or a full set of teeth – so the options are plenty, making dental implants a popular option for replacement. Implants require three major steps to consider and can take a series of visits to our office to fully complete the process:
- Surgical implant placement
- Healing from the surgical placement of the implant(s)/temporary teeth placement
- Replacement of any missing teeth with crowns
While the process may sound extensive, the benefits of dental implants are many.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Look and act like natural teeth
- Durable, long-lasting
- Feel strong and stable
- Help preserve bone tissue and bone
- Allow you to brush and floss normally

Restore Your Smile with Dentures
There are two major types of dentures:
- partial dentures
- complete removable dentures
The keyword being “removable“.
Unlike dental implants and implant-supported dentures, traditional partial or complete dentures are removable, not permanently implanted into your mouth. Dentures can be a quick, non-invasive, and more affordable fix to missing teeth.
If you’re experiencing tooth loss from gum disease, injury, or tooth decay, dentures can help your appearance and smile and also restore your ability to speak and eat.

Restore Your Smile with Implant-Supported Dentures
While implant-supported dentures are similar to traditional dentures, the difference lies in the use of implants for retention instead of adhesive. The implant can reduce the bulkiness of traditional dentures and give more space for the tongue.
This means that the ability to taste food with dentures will be greatly enhanced. They’re also sturdier and there’s no need for any adhesive at any time because the dentures are so well supported by the implants. This helps preserve bone, tissue, and muscle tone in the face as well to maintain a more youthful appearance.
