Implants are notoriously expensive. Many insurances provide only limited coverage. Maybe your provider will partially cover them but provides complete coverage for a denture.
If you don’t feel your insurance will help out, you should still think about investing in getting full mouth implants instead of a denture.
How is this worth it?
Implants Meet Real Needs
Don’t be fooled into thinking that what your insurance covers is what your mouth needs. Dental implants do far more than just make a smile pretty. They also offer a very practical solution in terms of function.
Dental implants are meant to be permanent. No other restoration comes with that sort of security. It’s a pleasant surprise if a denture lasts more than five years.
Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. This makes cleaning them a lot simpler than cleaning a denture. You can live without the fear of something falling out and embarrassing you and easily eat the foods you love.
Implants are a one-time investment. Sit down and do the math. How much longer do you plan to live in need of functioning teeth? What will all those years add up to in terms of cost for maintaining smile? Adjusting dentures can be costly and they need replacement in a matter of years.
Bear in mind, too, that full mouth implants don’t mean getting an implant in every single place where you used to have a tooth. Rather, systems like Hybridge and implant-supported dentures could end up saving you thousands as you enjoy a strong smile for years to come. Discuss your options with your dentist to get an idea of what’s right for you.
