New Jersey Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Thomas Streko, Discusses Dental Implants Vs. Dentures

Dr. Thomas Streko, D.M.D., New Jersey cosmetic dentist, recently gave eight reasons why dental implants are superior to dentures.

Westfield, NJ. – January 7, 2011 – One of New Jersey’s leading cosmetic dentists, Dr. Thomas Streko, recently published an article on his website, titled “Are Dental Implants Right for You?” In the article, Dr. Streko explains the many advantages dental implants hold over dentures.

Dr. Streko writes, “If you’re missing teeth due to aging, disease, an accident or any other cause, you may have heard that dental implants are the current ‘industry standard’ when it comes to tooth replacement.  However, as they cost more than other forms of tooth replacement, and since oral surgery is a necessary part of the process, some patients who would clearly benefit from implants prematurely decide that implants ‘aren’t for them.’” Instead, Dr. Streko writes, “they opt to ‘get by’ with traditional dentures, often justifying the decision by telling themselves that implants don’t really make that much of a difference.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Some of the eight reasons why Dr. Streko recommends dental implants over dentures include, “implants look better than dentures,” “talking is easier with implants,” “implants feel completely natural” and “you can eat anything with implants,” among others.

“Dental implants provide so many advantages over dentures that in many cases, they aren’t just the clear choice; they should be the only choice.  Here are eight reasons why,” concludes Dr. Streko.
