Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Implant Costs, PART 3 This four-part article series provides a comprehensive FAQ guide to the cost of dental implants and the surgical procedures required to place them.
Welcome back to our four-part article series on tooth implant costs. In our previous article post, the second installment of the series, we discussed why dental implants are worth the investment and which dental procedures are covered by the quote provided to you by your dentist. In this article, the third installment, we shall continue to address more of your FAQs, beginning with a look at the many benefits and advantages of this sophisticated and longlasting technology. Question: What are the key benefits offered by tooth implant costs? Answer: Tooth implant costs may initially seem higher than most other tooth replacement technologies, but if you examine the benefits of these ingenious dental devices and take into account their much greater lifespan, it’s not hard to understand why! You wouldn’t expect to pay less for a brand new Ferrari than for an old and beat-up Mazda 323. You also wouldn’t expect the Ferrari to break down constantly and require attention from the mechanic! This is precisely the difference afforded by tooth implant costs. Dental implants are the high performance technology of the dental world. They last several decades and seldom require any restoration during that period. They are also functionally and aesthetically superior to traditional tooth replacement technologies, such as dental bridges and removable dentures. But tooth implant costs are about so much more than simply getting the best, most comfortable and functionally and cosmetically superior solution to missing teeth. Tooth implant costs also afford patients a technology that plays an integral role in preserving the health of the underlying jaw bone. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that replaces the root of the missing tooth as well as the crown. The titanium root of the implant transfers the forces associated with eating directly into this hard tissue, essentially keeping it exercised, stimulated and healthy. By preventing atrophy of the jaw bone, tooth implant costs help to preserve a patient’s youthful facial contours, while preventing the destabilization of the entire dental arch. To summarize briefly, tooth implant costs provide patients with: • • • • • •
A beautifully restored, natural-looking smile Ultimate confidence in the social and professional environment Fully-restored bite functionality and the ability to eat all the foods they love A new tooth that feels like a natural tooth and doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort Tooth implant costs promote proper articulation in speech Dental implants last 20, 30 years and even longer if cared for properly
They promote the health of the underlying jaw bone Tooth implant costs provide patients with a solution that actually helps to guard against further issues of tooth loss.
Question: I’ve heard that there are newer, more modern dental implant procedures that have actually reduced tooth implant costs. Is this true? Answer: More sophisticated dental implant procedures have indeed been developed, but they don’t reduce the individual tooth implant costs. Rather, they have markedly reduced the overall cost of oral rehabilitation! The All-on-4 is an advanced tooth replacement solution for patients that have lost most, if not all of their original adult teeth. It gives patients a fixed and non-removable set of teeth that are virtually indistinguishable - in function, fit, feel and appearance - from a natural set of teeth. Better yet, the cost savings patients are looking at making are: • •
Average tooth implant costs savings of $25,000 for straight-forward cases, Average tooth implant costs savings of $45,000 for more complex cases.
