dental implants Provo

If you want to restore your smile due to extensive tooth loss, you have a decision. Will you choose conventional dentures, or dentures supported by dental implants, like those available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo UT? When you consider the advantages of implants, there is really no contest.

Let’s compare conventional removable dentures and dental implants.


Dentures sit right on the gums. An adhesive is used to help maintain the daily fit A dental implant is surgically fixed into the jawbone similar to one’s original teeth.

Effective years

Dentures typically last 7 to 15 years. As one’s jawbone changes shape, dentures need to be adjusted to fit. Implants are fitted once.

Bone Loss

Missing teeth lead to bone loss, whch in turn changes the shape of the face. Unfortunately this shows in the face with a shrunken look. Implants help stimulate the jawbone, which helps to keep the shape of the bone and facial structure.


Dentures can move and shift as you wear them, affecting speech patterns. Dental implants are anchored securely in the jawbone, and don’t interfere with speech at all.


Sticky or hard foods are difficult or even impossible when chewing with dentures. Implant-supported dentures allow you to eat any kind of food.
