Are you thinking about replacing one or more missing teeth? Dental implants are a great option for many reasons, but the up-front costs leave many people looking for other choices. The truth is, while dental implants do have a high price tag initially, they enhance the quality of your life; they help preserve your oral health and they save you from costly and uncomfortable dental work in the future.
Implants May Be Less Expensive Than You Think
The idea of getting dental implants may seem intimidating. However , there are plenty of ways to make this treatment more affordable.
Weighing Implant Cost against Your Health and Wellness
Consider the long-term savings offered by dental implant treatment. If you choose traditional dentures rather than dental implants, you’re not protected from loss of jawbone density. This can lead to further oral health problems that can be costly to solve, and with dental implants, chewing and eating is so much more enjoyable!
Implant placement also prevents adjacent teeth from shifting out of position. This is a potential risk with removable dentures that can lead to ongoing bite problems.
All of these issues—loss of jawbone density, gum disease, tooth loss, and alignment issues—are significant oral health considerations that may require additional care and cost. If one chooses dental implants as an investment from the start of treatment, they will definitely help avoid potential expensive and uncomfortable dental problems in the future, all while creating a healthy and confident smile. And of course, chewing and eating will be much more comfortable.
Low Maintenance Costs
You brush and floss your dental implant restorations just like you do for your natural teeth, and no denture adhesives or periodic denture re-fittings will be required. And when you visit our dental office for a routine cleaning, our team will treat your restored teeth just the same way as your natural smile, by thoroughly polishing teeth and performing an evaluation of underlying gum tissue.
