Cost vs Value of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide those with missing or failing teeth a long term, natural-looking solution that restores both confidence and health to your smile. When placed successfully, implants provide a sturdy foundation for restoring the look and function of your teeth. For your continued health, comfort, and confidence, your dental implant placement should only be trusted to the highest quality experts with the skills, knowledge, and record to guarantee your safety and satisfaction. The long term value of your dental implants depends on the success and quality of treatment, so when researching your dental implant options, be sure to consider more than the dollars and cents.
Advantages of Dental Implants over Other Treatment Options
The higher cost of dental implants sometimes steers qualified patients toward dentures or bridges, but it is important to consider the advantages of dental implants compared to other options. Such considerations include the length of time each treatment lasts as continued visits, maintenance, and replacements can ultimately cost more in time and money than dental implants, which provide a lifelong solution with proper care.
Other advantages of dental implants include:
No need for costly cleaning solutions, adhesives, relining procedures, fixes or adjustments.
Dental bridges require natural teeth to first be filed down. This loss of natural tooth structure puts you at a higher risk of tooth decay and other dental problems. These problems cost you more in time and money down the road.
Dental implants give patients back their smiles by providing a natural-looking restoration of missing teeth. Customized prosthetic teeth are carefully matched to natural tooth color and the appropriate size and shape for your unique smile. Implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing important facial support and assistance in chewing, speaking, and smiling.
Dental implants are also cared for much like natural teeth. Simply brush, floss, and see your dentist on a regular basis.
Determining the Cost of Dental Implants
The costs of dental implants are determined by two key factors: time and materials.
How long does placement take?
Dental implants are placed through a series of steps conducted over several visits to the office. Dr. Jett and his highly trained team combine the latest technology with safe, proven procedures to ensure you receive the highest quality treatment that is both comfortable and successful. High resolution scans allow us to measure the optimal size, depth, and angle for placing your dental implants. Your prosthetic teeth are then custom made for natural-looking results that satisfy your oral health needs and aesthetic goals. During implant surgery, an anesthesiologist, Dr. Jett, and assisting staff work together to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.
What factors affect the cost of dental implants?
Several factors impact the total cost of dental implants including:
Oral and general health
The location of the tooth or teeth to be replaced
The type of replacement tooth needed
The number of implants required
The type of implant material used
Initial Costs Should Not Be the Only Factor Considered
While some materials might seem better in the short term due to lower initial costs, over time these materials fail to provide the same durability as higher quality options. Often times dentists choose to use lower quality materials because they are not experts in placing dental implants. Using a less experienced professional greatly increases the likelihood of implant failure, leading to more in time and money spent on replacements and follow-up appointments. Poor quality materials also increase the risk of implant failure or substandard results. Because we are committed to providing you with lasting results that maximize the health and happiness of your investment, we use only the highest quality materials.
