Have you dismissed the idea of dental implants due to cost? You might want to reconsider this option due to the many long-term advantages that dental implants provide over other removable options like dentures. If you have one or more missing teeth or you are tired of wearing dentures, it is time to investigate the benefits of dental implants.
Dental implants utilize prosthetic screws that are placed in your jawbone to act as strong tooth roots. After the titanium screws have fused to the bone, your new prosthetic teeth are attached to the implants, and you are then ready to enjoy your new natural-looking teeth for years to come. The use of high-tech imaging and equipment makes your customized dental implant process extremely successful and precise. But why would you make the investment in dental implants when you can just elect a less expensive removable option such as dentures, partials or bridges for your missing teeth? Here are a few important reasons why our patients consider their dental to be worth the cost difference.
Closest to the real thing – Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means you will not feel them click, pop or slip like dentures. Furthermore, your smile will look the most natural, giving you needed confidence. Most people cannot even distinguish a dental implant from a real tooth!
No Hassle – You will never have to deal with the daily hassle of taking your dentures or partials out for cleaning or worry with messy denture creams. Dental implants are a long-term solution with optimal convenience in your daily routine.
Better for your diet – With dentures, many patients are forced to eliminate foods that are harder to chew. Unfortunately, the foods that are left behind are often foods that are high in fiber and carry vital nutrients. Denture patients usually replace these foods with softer foods that are higher in carbohydrates and calories. These long term eating habits can lead to obesity and contribute significantly to heart disease and diabetes. Dental implants not only allow you to eat the foods you love, but they ensure you are not forced to eliminate nutrient-rich options from your diet.
The biggest return on your dental implant investment is found in your quality of life. After all, you are choosing to restore something you use every single day. A confident smile contributes greatly to your emotional health and we all know your teeth are vital for healthy nutrition and your physical health.
