I need to get dentures. It’s obvious I’m losing all my teeth. I’m fine with getting dentures, but my dentist keeps telling me all these horror stories about the dangers of dentures and why I need to get dental implants. My father wore dentures and did just fine. I know dental implants cost more. Is he just trying to get more money out of me or is what he’s saying true?

I don’t know exactly what your dentist has been telling you, but I can say with confidence that dental implants are by far a better treatment than dentures if you can afford them.
Dentures have problems:
- They move
- They cause you to lose jawbone
- They can be uncomfortable
- Food gets under them
All of these things can be solved by dental implants. If I were in your place, and could afford it, I’d choose dental implants over dentures hands down.
