Model of a dental implant replacing a toothDid you know that 500,000 Americans invest in dental implants every year? They offer the most predictable results using a method that replicates the entire tooth structure. Although you might have heard about their benefits, dental implants are attributed to a hefty price tag, but they are the most affordable tooth replacement method overall. Here are 4 reasons dental implants are worth the cost. 

1. Unmatched Support and Stability

Traditional tooth replacement techniques only treat the portion above the gum line, but dental implants go a step further. A titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a new root. A customized restoration is attached to the post using a special fixture called an abutment. 

Your jaw will fuse to the post to provide unmatched stability when compared to any other treatment. Dental implants can restore up to 70% of your natural biting force. 

2. High Success Rate 

Dental implants provide reliable results. They have over a 95% success rate and are proven to last for 30 years or longer with the correct care, like brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly.

3. Preserves Your Jawbone

Missing teeth cause your jawbone to deteriorate because it isn’t being stimulated by tooth roots. Bone loss can change the shape of your face over time and increase your risk of various dental issues, like cavities, gum disease, and additional tooth loss. 

A dental implant is the only treatment to offer jawbone preservation. The implant post will stimulate your bone to encourage new growth, keeping your jaw strong and healthy.

4. Reduces Overall Dental Expenses

A healthy jawbone prevents many common issues caused by missing teeth, so you’re less likely to need costly procedures later. Not to mention, dental implants can last for decades, so you’ll never need to budget for replacements. You’ll save money down the road by investing in the next best thing to real teeth.

Keeping Dental Implants Affordable

Dental implants are more affordable than you might have heard. The process takes several steps, each with separate fees. You’ll have more time to pay because you won’t need to come up with a lump sum before getting started. 

You can also use your dental insurance to partially cover some of the expenses, like your consultation, diagnostic services, preparatory procedures, and your restoration. Many dental practices accept third-party financing, like CareCredit. You can pay any out-of-pocket expenses using a flexible payment plan. 

Don’t settle for less than the best. Invest in the priceless benefits of dental implants to fill the gaps in your smile.
