Friendswood, Texas Dental Implants
Why Dental Implants are worth the cost.
A fully restored quality dental implant can run between 4,000 and 4,500 dollars. It is helpful to look at the cost compared to other forms of tooth replacements. When one looks at the success and longevity of dental implants, the dental implants are the least expensive tooth replacement option.
People loose teeth due to decay, failed root canals, gum disease and trauma. It would be great if we could grow new teeth but that is not possible. Thus, patients look for and want a permanent tooth replacement option that looks, acts and feels like a natural tooth. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that fulfills those requirements. Friendswood Texas residents want the best way to replace missing teeth.
Dentures and bridges are very old fashioned dentistry. In the past dentures and bridges were the best dentistry could do. Dentures are bulky plastic devices that merely sit on the gum tissue. They look like teeth but in no way function or act like real teeth. Dentures accelerate bone loss and are extremely unstable. Patients have to wear messy denture adhesives. Patients don’t like have to take “their teeth” out at night and put them in a glass of water. Bridges replace missing teeth but at the expense of adjacent teeth. To create a bridge, healthy teeth have to be aggressively cut down to create room for the bridge.
The removed tooth structure can never be replaced. Dental bridges do nothing to preserve bone of gum tissue. Soon patients will have gaps underneath their bridges that are unsightly and collect food. Furthermore, over fifty percent of bridges fail within 10 to 13 years due to decay or failed root canals. Now, the patient has larger and more expensive dental problems.
Dental implants are the most innovative tooth replacement option and have been used successfully for over 30 years. Dental implants do not come out and are permanent. Dental implants are designed to replicate natural tooth. Dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone. There the bone fuses and integrates with the titanium implant locking it into place. Then the implant is restored with an abutment and a beautiful porcelain crown. Patients brush and floss their restored dental implant just like their natural teeth. Dental implants will never need root canals and will never get decay.
