Cost vs Quality and Experience
Advances in dental implant technology and digital marketing have made dental implants widely available, but it is important that patients considering replacing a missing tooth or teeth research more than the cheapest price or closest dentist. The true cost of dental implants involves more than dollar amounts. While some dental implants appear to cost less upfront, the materials used and experience of the dentist impact the success of dental implant placement. A failed implant ultimately costs more in time, money, and pain than implants placed safely and securely the first time around.
Your Dentist’s Experience Counts
Multiple studies confirm that the more experience your dentist has in successfully placing dental implants, the higher the likelihood your implant will heal without incident, granting you a safe, smooth, and comfortable treatment process and results that will last for years. Research conducted by the Center for Implant Dentistry at Loma Linda University’s School of Dentistry confirmed that inexperienced dentists had a significantly higher failure rate in placing dental implants, costing patients more in reparative procedures, materials, and time spent correcting painful, embarrassing, and damaging side effects. Another study called “Reasons for Failures of Oral Implants” also concluded that inexperienced surgeons faced an increased risk of implant failure.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Many adults who suffer from missing or damaged teeth can benefit from dental implants. Implants are a long-term solution that restores both the look and function of missing teeth. Implants can act as a reliable, permanent foundation for prosthetic teeth custom made to match the size, color, and alignment of your unique smile for natural-looking results. Implants also may be used to support other dental appliances such as an implant-supported bridge or denture.
Implants fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once the fusion is complete, your implants act as a lifelong solution to improving your oral health. Implants do more than restore the look of your smile. They provide durability, improved confidence, make it easier to speak, chew, and smile, and can be cared for through simple brushing and flossing as you would your natural teeth. Implants also do not require natural teeth to be filed down, preserving more of your natural smile. And because implants are permanently fixed, they offer greater comfort than some removable treatments, such as dentures which may slide and rub.
