Affordable Dental Implants
Dental implants are when you replace a decaying or missing tooth with a ‘fake’ tooth that matches the rest of your existing teeth in color, shape and size. It gives the patient confidence to smile again and it lasts forever with good care. But are they affordable? Dental implants can be a little pricey but are definitely worth the investment. We work closely with insurance providers and offer discounts for people without insurance, so whatever your circumstance, we have got you covered.
With dental implant procedures becoming more popular within the Lincoln Park area, now is an excellent time to think about if they are the right fit for you. Dental implants are not just done for cosmetics reasons, they can also help improve speech, the way you chew and boost your confidence leading to improved mental health. Although they are pricey on the outset overall, they can be the more affordable option. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent. This means you don’t have the hassle of having to take them out, which in turn means they are less likely to get damaged and need replacing. Once fitted, they will start to feel like regular teeth. There is no plastic or metal plate sitting on the roof of your mouth. Dentures typically last 5 – 10 years but can start to feel uncomfortable overtime when your gums change shape.
Be aware there are some factors that might stop you from having a dental implant procedure. These include if you are a smoker, have gum disease, have diabetes that isn’t monitored well or have had radiotherapy in your jaw. If you have had any of those, don’t fret you could still have implants. Dentists judge whether a patient can proceed on an individual basis, so it is always best to speak to your dentist and have some checks to see if you are eligible before ruling it out.
There are different forms of dental implants, so make sure you chose which one is right for you. See below for the variety of treatments you can receive:
- Single dental implant – Replacing a missing tooth using individual implants.
- Bridging implant – Connect three or more teeth together to create a bridge, them implanting it as one.
- Bone Grafting – This is when your jaw bone is too soft or not thick enough to hold the implant.
