Dental implants are an option that you have to fill in spaces between your teeth where are a tooth is missing or had to be removed. These smile fillers are a great way to permanently fix a fake tooth or many fake teeth into place without the need for dentures or other removable teeth. Making the decision about whether or not dental implants are a wise investment for you or not is completely up to you, however having all the important information is the first step to making that decision on your own.
Why invest in dental implants?
There are many reasons why dental implants are an excellent investment for someone who wants to replace their missing teeth or simply replace a tooth that is doomed to die. First, dental implants last a longer amount of time compared to bridges and dentures allowing you to go longer before replacing them. The implants also prevent any bone loss that may occur due to your missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants will not affect the teeth surrounding the implant unlike dentures where they wear the space between healthy teeth. Finally you won’t have to worry about what you can and cannot eat with implants as they are attached to the bone preventing you from dealing with diet restrictions.
Long Run Costs
Dental implants prices depends on how many implants you require to fill in the blank spaces in your smile and the number of damaged teeth you will need to have replaced. When you talk to your dentist about the implants, ensure that you are getting a quote for both pieces of the implant procedure and that the correct number of implants needed is calculated into your quote. Since everyone’s situations are different and insurance may or may not cover some of or part of the procedure, insurance should be taken into consideration as well to know exactly how much you will need to pay out of pocket. You can also figure that the total cost of getting implants will generally range between $5,800 to $7,300 per tooth for both the extraction and implant, some dentists will generally deduct some of the cost for multiple teeth if they can be done all at the same time. You will also have to consider the type of implant you are looking to get as there are variations in cost for those as well depending on your needs.
