Are Dental Implants Expensive?

Posted in Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard of care when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Although they were once only a procedure that an elect few patients were able to afford, the overall cost of dental implant therapy has reduced tremendously. The complete implant treatment is now something than many more people are able to afford.

If you’ve been comparing different types of dental treatment, you’ve probably found yourself in a cost-comparison process that assesses how much your different treatment procedures will be. Most people think of up-front costs to have a procedure initially performed, but do not look at the long-term maintenance of the treatment and how much any re-treatments will cost them over time. For example – implants or bridges. A dental bridge may be less money initially to have the treatment completed, but the lifetime of a dental bridge is not nearly that of the dental implant. A dental implant has the potential to last an entire lifetime, while a bridge may need to be replaced one or two more times.

Implants can be a smarter investment from the beginning, because they last longer than any other type of dental treatment. Natural teeth can be restored a few times, but they eventually break down and may be lost completely. Dental implants are stronger artificial teeth that last decades when properly cared for.

Over the course of your life, investing in dental implants can save you a tremendous amount of money. If you’re concerned with the initial investment in your care, ask your dentist about affordable, flexible financing options to make dental implants a possibility for the health of your smile.
