Dental implants may seem a little expensive, but this tooth replacement option is actually a good value in the long run. Your Canton, OH dentist-- Dr. Andrea M. Company, a explain why dental implants are worth the cost.

Implants are often the most inexpensive option

It's important to not only consider the upfront costs of dental implants, but also the long-term costs. Bridges or dentures may need to be Dental Implantsreplaced several times during your life, depending on your age when you receive them. Rising costs affect everything, even costs related to bridges and dentures. When you need to replace those appliances in 10 or 15 years, you can expect to pay even more than you did when you originally got them. Because implants become part of your jaw, they usually never need to be replaced and may actually be the least expensive option.

Dental implants help protect your oral health

Your jawbone begins to shrink and weaken after you lose a tooth, which can eventually lead to facial sagging. This issue occurs because your tooth no longer provides needed stimulation to the underlying bone. When you choose an implant to replace a missing tooth, your Canton dentist will drill a small hole in your bone and place a titanium implant inside it. Over the next three to six months, the implant will bond to the surrounding bone. Once the implant is stable, it will replace your lost roots and continue to provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to stay strong.

One lost tooth can also affect the health of nearby teeth. Your tooth helped keep the adjacent teeth in alignment. Once that tooth is gone, the rest of your teeth begin to overlap as they drift toward the opening. When teeth overlap, it's difficult to remove every speck of cavity-causing plaque.

Dental implants look and feel like the real teeth

Dental implants are designed to look an act just like your natural teeth. Although bridges and dentures are good tooth replacement options, they have some limitations. If they don't fit perfectly, they can irritate your gums. When you wear dentures, your biting power is decreased, which can make it difficult or impossible to eat some hard foods. Your biting power is unaffected when you have a dental implant.
