Dentures or Dental Implants?

Dental implants visualization

Do you have missing teeth? You have options. Patients are faced with two primary tooth replacement options today: dentures and dental implants. While choosing dentures can certainly save you some money upfront, it is worth considering several significant advantages that dental implants provide over dentures. Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement and they are quickly changing the face of dentistry. When trying to decide between tooth replacement options, here are some key factors about dental implants that you need to know:

  • Permanent – Perhaps the biggest advantage in choosing dental implants is the fact that dental implants are designed to be a permanent tooth replacement option. Dental implants are prosthetic screws made of strong titanium that are placed in the jawbone to take the place of missing tooth roots. Once they have been allowed to heal, the screws fuse to the bone and are anchored securely into place. Prosthetic teeth (or crown restorations) can then be attached to the implants to take the place of one tooth or more multiple missing teeth.
  • Natural – Dental implants look, feel and function most like natural teeth. They are custom designed according to your existing teeth or new smile goals.
  • Comfortable – Unlike dentures, you there’s no struggle with ill-fitting replacement teeth that may click, pop or slip. You won’t have to deal with sores along your gum line or multiple trips back to the dentist to get your dentures to fit properly.
  • More Convenient – Dental implants do not require additional maintenance beyond routine brushing and flossing. There’s no need to hassle with messy denture creams or suffer the inconvenience of taking them out and cleaning them each day. This benefit alone makes dental implants far worth it for many patients.
  • More Functional – Dental implants enable you to regain full function of your smile. You can eat, smile and speak with confidence. Often denture wearers restrict their diet and avoid foods that are difficult to chew. Unfortunately, this typically means that their food intake progresses towards a low-fiber, high carb diet. Long-term, this can lead to other health problems such as weight gain and diabetes.

Although dental implants are not for everyone, they certainly offer noteworthy benefits over dentures, despite the cost difference. Dr. Mitzi Morris offers top quality dental implants and she welcomes the opportunity to restore your smile in the most natural, comfortable and functional way.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Going to a new dentist can be stressful, but this experience was the BEST I have ever had. Dr. Morris and Dr. Fields are a cut above the rest, and they offer state of the art technology, and an environment that takes the sting out of going to the dentist for sure. Conveniently located in Roswell, the staff is caring, patient-focused, and efficient. I've never smiled so much at a dentist's office! I highly recommend friends and family making their next visit to this dentist. Pain free!!!!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.
