When giving patients options for replacing their teeth, patients will always ask, “What is my cheapest option and what will my dental insurance cover or pay?” There are many options for replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth, but Dental Implants are by far the best option for tooth replacement. Studies going out 30 years still give implants a 95% success rate, which is by far superior to any other option including bridges and partials. When looking at replacing your teeth it is important to stop thinking about it as an “expense” and start thinking about it as an investment. We don’t just use our teeth once a day, we chew, swallow and eat constantly throughout the day so isn’t important that we have reliable teeth that function correctly? Dental Implants allow us to do that.
When looking at the option of Dental Implants versus a Fixed Bridge, Dental Implants are actually only slightly more expensive than a Bridge. Many insurance companies cover portions of the Implant payment, or dictate the fee that in network providers have to charge. Many financing options are also available to make Implants more feasible for patients. We, at Periodontal Specialists, want to give you all of your options and help you make the best decision about replacing your teeth. We want to make sure you make the best investment for your long term dental health goals, and most importantly keep you smiling! So, make an appointment for a Dental Implant consult so we can pull back the curtain on the real “Investment” and not “Expense” that Dental Implants really are.
