If you have missing teeth, dental implants are almost always the best option to replace them. However, many patients are concerned about the cost, since dental implants are rarely covered by insurance. This is why Dr. Jorge Paez offers dental financing plans for his Las Vegas patients. Affordable dental implants are within your reach with the right financing plan and an experienced dentist who can ensure that your implants will be long-lasting and worth the cost.
If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, their cost, and how they can benefit you, call Dr. Paez today at 702-737-3553 to schedule your consultation.
Are Dental Implants Worth It?
While cheap dental implants do exist, you should be wary of any deal that seems too good to be true. When performed by an experienced and knowledgable dentist, dental implants can last a lifetime. However, if performed by an inexperienced or careless dentist, you may end up with complications that necessitate spending even more money to have them fixed.
When done right, though, dental implants are generally considered to be one of the best investments you can make in your teeth. Benefits can include:
- Replaces the tooth root
- Lasts a lifetime in the right candidate
- Provides a stable base for a false tooth
- Does not require surrounding teeth to be filed down
Replacing the tooth root is the most valuable benefit that dental implants offer. When a tooth root goes missing, the jaw bone loses a vital part of its structure. This can eventually lead to bone resorption, which can lead to jaw collapse. This is why so many elderly people who wear full adhesive dentures end up with a sunken-in look to their jaw.
In addition to being the only missing tooth treatment that replaces the tooth root, dental implants are also the only treatment that can literally last a lifetime. Dental bridges, while they can last for years or even decades, will eventually need to be replaced. If a dental implant is placed correctly and taken care of properly, you may never need to replace it.
Dental Implants Cost Over Time
While dental implants may seem expensive, when the cost is averaged out over time, it turns out that they are quite a good value for the money. In fact, typically, dental implants cost less than the price of a daily Starbucks drink. Plus, they are much better for your health!
When you consider how much dental work you may end up needing if you don’t bother to replace a missing tooth, it makes sense to invest in dental implants. It’s like buying a nice pair of boots - the well-made leather boots may cost more up front, but they will last much longer than the cheap faux leather pair and will save you money in the long run.
