Either your eyes or your smile is the first thing people are most likely to notice about you. If you’re not presenting your best smile because you have a missing tooth – or missing teeth – you’ll be happy to learn that a dental implant procedure can restore your smile, your self-confidence, and your oral health in these amazing ways:
Additionally, they can improve your oral health by reducing the risk of tooth and gum disease, and they are a low maintenance option once the procedure has been completed. In fact, they can last a lifetime if taken care of properly. How’s that for a cost-effective way to restore a smile?
Because they can last a lifetime with proper care, implants are also a great way to avoid bone loss in your jaw – something that will inevitably occur without replacing the gap created by the missing tooth. After you’ve lost a tooth – either through trauma, extraction, or any other reason – the surrounding bone in your jaw will start to be reabsorbed back into your body. When this happens, the door is opened for additional oral health concerns such as gum and periodontal disease. But when patients choose implants as a tooth replacement, they’ll not prevent conditions such as these from developing, but they’ll enjoy the all-natural look and feel of the replacement tooth, as well!
Although every situation will be different depending on any number of patient variables, the average cost of a dental bridge can fall between the $3.000 – $4,000 range. And when that cost is compared to the average cost of an implant – between $4,000 and $6,000 – many patients believe that a dental bridge is the better choice. But what many forget to factor in is that a dental bridge will need to be replaced periodically, whereas an implant procedure is a one-time cost.
