For those who have missing or broken teeth, dental implants are a valuable option that provide a long-term solution to something that affects not only the oral health, but also the self-esteem and self-confidence of the patient. Unfortunately, some patients shy away because they believe the cost is more than they can afford but we have new financing options and a long list of benefits that show the dental implant cost is worth it.
Why Should You Choose Dental Implants?
Implants are just one of the teeth replacement options we offer at Cheyenne Mountain Dental, but we believe they have benefits that are unlike any other treatment.
Whether you are replacing all your teeth or just one or two, implants can be matched to what natural teeth you have left so they are virtually identical to them. Because they are implanted in the jaw, they don’t move or slip while you are eating or talking like dentures can.
Implants also protect the bone in your jaw. Once the root of the tooth is removed because the tooth is beyond saving, the bone is no longer stimulated to grow and will deteriorate over time. This can shift your teeth, cause you to lose additional teeth and directly affect your oral health. When implants are placed, a titanium rod is implanted directly in the jaw and functions as the root to protect the bone.
Are Dental Implants Worth It?
Implants are more expensive than dentures, but the long-term benefits easily offset the upfront costs. Dentures must be removed, can be lost and don’t provide the same level of comfort and durability as implants. When your implants are placed correctly and you care for them as you should, they can last a lifetime. With so little maintenance, they are a one-time investment that is strong and durable.
