Are you self-conscious of your smile and would love to smile with confidence again?

We are proud to offer a variety of tooth replacement options for our patients. Some patients express that it can be overwhelming and emotional deciding which tooth replacement option to choose. While we feel that each option is beneficial for a variety of reasons, we think there is one option that is the most popular among our patients. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of this tooth replacement option.
What are Dental Implants?
When a patient is looking for a tooth replacement option, we often hear that their biggest request is a treatment that is long lasting and natural looking. This is when we suggest dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They provide a permanent base for replacement teeth such as a crown. Over time, the artificial tooth roots fuse with the jawbone to create a permanent solution. When cared for properly, dental implants can potentially last for the rest of your life.
The Price is Right
We know that the cost of the procedure can seem a bit expensive at first; however, we want you to think about the long term. Imagine no more tooth decay, no cavities, no root canals, no costs for repairing or upgrading other hardware such as dentures. If you add up the expenses of these treatments versus dental implants, the implants are actually more cost effective and will save you money over time. The only expense that you will incur moving forward are your hygiene examinations twice a year.
There are endless benefits when discussing the benefits of dental implants. Patients love implants for reasons such as:
- Ability to enjoy your favorite foods
- Jawbone cannot deteriorate
- Low maintenance and easy to clean
- Looks like natural teeth
