Implants provide patients with an enhanced level of comfort. Removable dentures can affect eating and speech patterns because of how easily they can move in the mouth. Furthermore, removable dentures have to come out after meals for cleaning and out at night. Removable dentures clasp onto the remaining teeth and cause excessive torque on the natural teeth and can lead to loosening and eventual loss of the natural teeth. All of the problems of removable dentures are avoided with dental implants.
