Deciding to dive into cosmetic dentistry is a win in it of itself. Deciding on which procedure to go for is a whole other ball game. There are many procedures in cosmetic dentistry that may or may not give you the same initial outcome, but the longevity of these procedures vary. One of the most popular procedures is dental implants. Before completely jumping in the dental implant world, it’s important to know some very important factors that could sway you either way.
Cost: The Investment of a Lifetime
One of the biggest reasons many people tend to sway the other way when it comes to dental implants is because of their high price tag. This comes down to the tale old statement, you get what you paid for. Dental implants range from $4000-$6000/ per tooth, which we know, it’s a very large cost. But if you think about all the money you’d save down the line, you'd jump into this procedure without thinking twice! Most other “quick-fix” solutions that have a smaller price tag upfront, usually need replacements every few years, these usually cost $1000-$3000, depending on the procedure. If you have the opportunity to shell out a little bit more now, you will save thousands in the future. Plus, dental implants are more durable than the others!
Choose High Quality Over Low Price
Unlike dentures, dental implants won’t slip around or shift in any way. They are designed to mimic a tooth root and is anchored by a tooth replacement. This is the closest you’ll ever get to getting a durable replacement for your missing tooth. If that doesn’t give you peace of mind, I don’t know what will! In addition to their durable quality, they also look the most natural in comparison to all other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dental implants are customized to fit your exact needs for your mouth, jaw, and smile. The price tag may be high, but you won’t ever need to worry about them deteriorating or breaking unexpectedly. These implants are usually projected to last upwards of 40 years! How’s that for longevity?
Health Benefits You Need to Know
You may have read in other search articles about the benefits of the high price directly linking to their high quality, but did you know dental implants are the healthier option too? Over time, dentures and bridges deteriorate. These types of procedures can lead to bone loss over the years, which can, of course, affect your neighboring teeth. Dental implants, however, aid to this problem. The titanium implant, over time, fuses together with your jawbone, in turn making it stronger and keeping your roots healthier for longer. It stimulates growth and keeps the longevity of even your neighboring teeth.
Don’t make the same mistake others do by jumping into other procedures simply because they’re cheaper. Don’t let the cost scare you away, instead, look at the longevity and health benefits of dental
implants as well. It’s a worthwhile investment that you won’t regret.
