it's good to smile if you feel confident about your set of teeth. some people use dentures to cover up that missing tooth or teeth and to be able to smile with ease. if you've got a missing tooth or teeth, would you prefer a removable prosthetic denture or an implant? please smile and press the keys to post your comments. thank you.

The good thing is I still have all my teeth intact. I also have not experience any toothache. I guess it was because at an early age, I brush and cared for my teeth early and do not eat a lot of sweets. Perhaps I am one of those lucky guys who does not need any dentures. But if assuming, I would be needing one, I would prefer those that are removable so that it would be easier to clean and maintain. I think the price also is an advantage, if am not mistaken removable ones are cheaper.

wow! congratulations for having the complete set! it's true that removables are cheaper and less painful. one costs four digits but the implant will cost you five digits plus more pain in doing the process. thanks a lot!

I am missing nine teeth and would prefer to have the removable ones. I will be putting in a request at the dental office soon. If I quality that is with my insurance. I would not want to bare so much pain getting the implants. My ex husband did this and he could not finish the other level.

I have quite a lot of dental bridge works. Too many sweets when i was young (and up till now, i must admit). I dont think i can have implants as i hate the idea of a dentist drilling through my jaw bone. Removeable dentures are out for me also. This is because i have seen them wobble occasionally in peoples mouth. Looks so disgusting. IMO I smile very well with my bridgeworks cause they look so natural, though they cost a bomb!
