Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option for many reasons. They’re the closest you could get to having your natural teeth back. Implants are also proven to be a financially smart decision for many patients.
Could an implant save you some money, as well, despite costing more upfront? Here are three ways it very well could.
No Need to Replace Your Restorations
Choosing a dental bridge or partial denture to replace a missing tooth may cost a fraction of the price of an implant procedure.
Keep in mind, however, that getting an implant is once-in-a-lifetime deal. Once you have it, it should stay with you indefinitely. Other tooth replacement options easily wear out within ten years or less.
Although you might pay less for a bridge or denture initially, you’re going to be paying that sum time and again throughout the rest of your life.
Implants Keep Your Smile Healthier
Dental implants don’t put any strain or wear on your remaining natural teeth. This means that those natural teeth will stay healthier longer.
Getting an implant also boosts your smile’s health by strengthening the bone in your jaw and maintaining the alignment of your remaining teeth. Healthy straight teeth won’t need dental treatment any time soon.
Save on Oral Hygiene Supplies
If you have a dental bridge or a partial filling in the gap in your smile, then you may need to buy some extra cleaning tools like: special flossers, denture brushes, storage cases, denture solution, or water flossers.
To clean your dental implant all you need is a regular toothbrush and floss.
Ask your dentist whether a dental implant is right for you.
