Dental Implants: An Upfront Investment That Can Save Money in the Long Run
Anyone who has suffered tooth loss probably already knows that dental implants are considered the best tooth replacement option available. But when many people discover the financial commitment involved, they might decide they cannot “afford” dental implants. The truth is that dental implants not only provide invaluable benefits but throughout your lifetime—and dental implants can last that long—you will end up saving money.
We would love to talk to you about dental implants in our Tacoma, WA practice, Tranquility Dental Wellness. We are happy to answer any questions you might have—and also conduct an examination to find out if dental implants are right for you.
The Financial Benefits of Dental Implants
If you take a look at the bottom line of the cost of dental implants versus other tooth replacement options, you’ll see the upfront cost is higher. But this can be misleading when you consider that dentures and bridges used for tooth replacement will likely need adjustments through the years—as well as a replacement.
When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime. There are no adjustments needed. They will likely never need to be replaced. You can simply enjoy your smile by practicing good home care and visiting your dentist regularly for examinations and cleanings.
What Makes Dental Implants Invaluable
Because dental implants look and function very much like your natural tooth, you will have no eating restrictions. You can enjoy the crunchiest vegetables and juiciest steak with no worries. Laughing and talking will be natural as well because you’ll have no concerns about slipping dentures.
Your appearance will not change over the years as a result of your tooth loss. Denture-wearers generally suffer from a condition known as “facial collapse,” which gives them a sunken-in appearance since a lack of teeth means the jawbone begins to shrink.
You will not have to pay for adjustments or replacements to your dental implants over the years as you would with dentures. This can mean many years of savings.
