Are dental implants expensive?
There is no denying that dental implants are a significant financial investment upfront, but when you consider the life of a dental implant and the lack of maintenance that is generally needed, they can actually be more cost-effective in the long run than other tooth replacement options.
Consider the following:
- Denture-wearers routinely have to have adjustments made to their appliances because of the jawbone shrinkage that occurs over time. This will cause dentures to become loose and ill-fitting. Because dental implants are permanently integrated into the jawbone, it is protected from shrinking so this type of adjustment is never needed.
- There is a higher quality-of-life standard with dental implants that just cannot compare with dentures or other tooth replacement options. Dental implants are undoubtedly the most like one’s natural teeth because they do not move or slide the way dentures and bridges can. Patients can eat all of their favourite foods with dental implants, which just isn’t possible with dentures. They can also speak and laugh comfortably—with no adjustment period.
