Even though dentures have been used for many decades, the no-fuss simplicity of dental implants generally makes them a more effective option for the replacement of missing teeth. Because they are built to match your natural teeth as closely as possible, implants are more comfortable, reliable and functional than dentures but people are still having the dental implants vs dentures debate. Lets take a look at some of the reasons why are dental implants better than dentures.

While this is a perfectly acceptable answer, it's only really half the story. In reality, braces are simply the vehicle used to accelerate tooth movement, but it's underneath the surface where the really clever stuff happens.
