Understanding The Cost

When looking at the price tag attached to any dental or medical treatment, you will want to know the value of the treatment. The dental implant cost will vary depending on how many implants you will get, the complexity of your dental situation, etc. Dental implants will be more expensive than a dental bridge or denture, but that is because dental implants offer benefits these alternatives do not.

The less expensive alternatives are designed to last for years, not a lifetime. You can expect to have bridges, crowns, or dentures replaced every 5-15 years, while a dental implant can last 25 years or more with proper care. This means less future reinvestment, making it a more affordable option in the long run.

Are Dental Implants Worth the Cost?

While the value one receives from a treatment is really in the eye of the beholder, it is generally thought that implants are worth the investment. The biggest benefit a dental implant offers, which other tooth replacement options do not, is that they replace the tooth both above and below the gumline. A denture or bridge merely sits on the gum line, leaving the future health of the jawbone at risk. Because a dental implant is replacing the tooth’s root, your jawbone will receive the stimulation it needs to remain healthy and not be reabsorbed into the body. This is the most significant advantage a dental implant has and why having one surgically placed into the jawbone makes it worth the cost.
