Are dental Implants worth the money?

Dec 15, 2022 | Blog

Dental implants have multiple advantages over other tooth replacement treatments, including:

Improved appearance: Dental implants improve aesthetics but they look and feel like natural teeth so that they can improve the appearance of your smile.

Better functionality: Because dental implants are securely fixed in the jawbone, they provide a stable base for your chewing and speaking. This can make it easier to eat various foods and speak clearly.

Long-lasting: With proper care, your dental implants will last a lifetime. They are more durable and long-lasting than other tooth replacement options.

Oral health: Dental implants do not require modifying of adjacent teeth, as is often necessary with bridges. This can help preserve the health of your natural teeth.

Convenience: Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent and do not require any special maintenance.

Comfort: Dental implants are comfortable because they are securely anchored in the jawbone, unlike dentures which can sometimes be uncomfortable or ill-fitting.

Increased self-esteem: Dental implants can help improve your self-esteem and confidence by giving you a natural-looking smile.

Dental Implants are worth it since they prevent bone loss: Bone in the jaw needs nerves to stay alive, in case there are no tooth roots (or implants) it dies and undergoes atrophy. Therefore, implants are used to keep them stimulated.

Lack of stimulation of the jaw bone due to empty space causes tissue deterioration. If an implant is not placed in the first year of losing the tooth, your bone will lose approximately 25% of its volume and continue to do so in the upcoming years.

Free from gum diseases: dental implants are worth keeping in because they bridge the gap of missing teeth that may serve as a playing ground for bacteria. Their accumulation can cause gum diseases.

Facial sagging and premature aging prevention: it is an unwanted side effect of bone loss that results due to loss of teeth. It is when the lower third part of your face begins to lose strength and collapse. This results in the gradual closing of the distance between the tip of your nose and the chin.

Such modifications include extra wrinkles around the mouth, lip thinning, and a more pointy chin. All of these changes make people look a lot older than they really are.

Are dental implants worth your money?

The cost of dental implants is not the same. Your amount depends on factors like the location, type of implant, and the complexity of your case. Generally, dental implants are more expensive than other tooth replacement options, like dentures or bridges.

However, despite their high cost, dental implants are worth the investment. They are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Implants provide a number of benefits, including improved oral health, better speaking and chewing ability, and increased self-confidence.

They can also help to preserve the integrity of the jawbone, which can prevent further tooth loss and maintain the natural face shape.
