Q.

iMPLANT VS DENTURES

I had a bad experientce where a dentist insisted on pulling out two molars from the bottom jaw and right next to each other. This is causing my cheek to curve inwards as there is no support. Which would be better implants or dentures. I would hate to look old before my time or have a lopsided face becuase of this.

Please help!

Depending on which patients you ask, some would say implants are better some would say dentures.
Implannts are superior in that they are integrated into your bone and there is no need to remove them at night.
The costs of implants though far exceed those of dentures.
In personal opinion, I think implants are "better"
