Continuing Cost of Bridges and Dentures
While Bridges and Dentures are less expensive at the outset, you should consider that both options have sometimes considerable continuing expenses. Bridges, by their structure, cut down the neighboring abutment teeth – which can lead to weakness and repeated treatments. The bridge is a minimal decrease in finances comparatively. Dentures cannot preserve the jaw bone the way Dental Implants can, so the jaw shrinks as the bone is resorbed, leading to ill-fitting Dentures and repeated rounds of re-fitting and re-placing. The function of a denture is exponentially decreased compared to implant treatment. Over a lifetime, Dental Implants can be cost-effective as well as esthetic choice.
Financing for Dental Implants
First, let us check with your dental insurance carrier to see what portion, if any, they will cover.
There are health care credit companies that offer no-interest and low-interest loans for medical procedures including dental implants. [Care Credit]
Dental Implants are an investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making it easier to eat a balanced, healthy diet. A full set of teeth also preserves the contours of the lip and face, keeping you from looking old before your time.
You will want to discuss all of your options with your dentist and oral surgeon, but don’t let the initial fear of cost discourage you from getting Dental Implants. We will be happy to assist you in making an educated decision that you will give you peace and satisfaction.
