Are dental implants expensive?
Dental implants generally have a higher up-front cost than other tooth-replacement options, such as bridges and partials. However, these other tooth-replacement options are not made to last a lifetime, and studies show that they can contribute to additional tooth and bone loss. Dental implants are an investment in your long-term oral health, and most people agree that the benefits far outweigh the initial cost.
- I consulted a dentist several years and he told me that I didn’t have adequate bone to place in-the-bone implants without fracturing my now fragile jawbone. Are there any alternatives?
- I’m missing all teeth and wear a full uppers and lowers, but I can’t tolerate my lowers. Will I need an implant for every tooth I am replacing on the lower jaw?
