Grey Tooth Design with Norco Family Dental on the right

What is the difference between dental implants and dentures?

Do you have missing teeth and want to recreate your natural smile? At Norco Family Dental, we offer attractive tooth replacement options, including dental implants and dentures.

Dentures Replace Missing Teeth

Dentures replace the visible portion of your teeth and rest upon the gums. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. 

  • Complete dentures are used when all or most of your teeth are missing. 
  • Partial dentures are used when you still have remaining healthy teeth. 

Conventional dentures are removable and customized to ensure a perfect fit. We craft our dentures from the highest-quality materials so they look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. 

Dental Implants Permanently Restore Your Teeth

Dental implants permanently replace the tooth roots (beneath the gums) and the visible portion of the tooth (above the gums). Dental implants are commonly considered to be the gold standard for tooth replacement because they become a natural part of your mouth's anatomy. 

Dental implant posts are made from biocompatible titanium, so they're long-lasting and durable. Your dentist surgically places the dental implant post into the jawbone. After it heals, we top it off with a restoration, which can be a crown, bridge, or permanent denture.
