What You Get When You Invest in Dental Implants


Dental Implants Houston, TXSometimes, it is incredibly easy to spend money, like when that shiny new car calls our name. In situations where an unexpected problem occurs, and we must correct it, shelling over our dollars might not feel quite as good. We see this happen when patients are met with the need to replace a tooth or teeth. Even when tooth loss or extraction has been a long time coming, there is often a sense of stress surrounding the choice that must be made. In the midst of that stress, the cost of care usually makes its way center-stage. Here’s why it shouldn’t.

Cost vs Value of Implants

When we only look at the expense of dental treatment like dental implants, we get an incomplete picture. Tooth replacement is a big deal. It’s something that you don’t want to have to go through repeatedly if it can be helped. According to statistics, dental bridges and implants typically last up to 15 years. Conversely, dental implants can last several decades. In addition to having a shorter lifespan, dentures must also receive periodic adjustments to ensure proper fit. Over time, the repeated maintenance needed for bridges and dentures is thought to make them a costlier option than dental implants.

Value of Dental Implants

The cost of an item or treatment doesn’t always indicate better value. Value comes from longevity, and it also comes from the amount of benefit that item or treatment provides. Most dentists and patients prefer dental implants because they stabilize artificial teeth. In fact, the small titanium posts that fuse with bone in the jaw secure artificial teeth so well that they end up feeling very much like natural teeth, according to patients. False teeth that look and feel like natural teeth, and that act like natural teeth in regards to stimulating new bone growth in the jaw, are more valuable than we could have hoped for just a few decades ago.
