Dental implants are a valuable option for many Americans who suffer from missing or broken teeth. Dental Implants offer patients a long-term solution for a condition that affects not only the oral health, but also the self-esteem and self-confidence of the patient. Unfortunately, many patients failt to seriously consider this option due to the fact that they believe the expense 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 and affordable.
Why Are Dental Implants the Best Solution?
Implants are just one of the teeth replacement options we offer at Weimar Family Dental, but we believe they have benefits that are superior to any other treatment.
If you are replacing all your teeth or just a few, 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.
Dental Implants also protect the health of your jawbone. After the root of the tooth is extracted (because it cannot be saved), the bone is no longer stimulated to grow and can crumble 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 need to 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.
