Dental Implants, Are they worth the Investment?

A missing tooth can often leave you searching for a tooth replacement option. While there are several tooth replacement options available, each comes with a different price tag. A dental implant is considered the finest tooth replacement option currently available in restorative dentistry, and yet many patients shy away from receiving an implant because of the significant financial cost.

It’s true that dental implants tend to cost more than conventional tooth replacement options such as a partial denture, and sometimes bridgework. Some dental insurance plans may not cover dental implants or may only cover a small portion of the total, leaving the patient to foot the bill for the remaining balance. However, your Bloomsburg implant dentists at Hamilton Dental Care believe the long-term benefits of an implant actually outweigh the expense in most cases. Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits of implants, and why we think they are worth the investment.

High-Quality Materials

Dental implants consist of a titanium post, which is surgically inserted into the jawbone in place of the missing tooth, and attached to the implant is a custom-made porcelain dental crown. The dental crown will be crafted to look just like a natural tooth, and will even have the same light reflecting qualities of dental enamel. The porcelain can be chosen to match your other teeth, blending in when you smile. These high-quality materials make dental implants superior to other tooth replacement options.

Preserves Jaw Bone

The dental implant post provides a stable foundation for your replacement tooth, and it stimulates the jawbone, fulfilling the same form and function as the root of your missing tooth. No other tooth replacement replaces the tooth’s root. Without that stimulation the jawbone would eventually resorb into the body, creating a host of other oral health concerns such as teeth that drift or become misaligned.

Natural Looking Results

Each implant installed by Hamilton Dental Care is topped with a crown that replaces the exterior of the tooth. Our implant crowns are made out of high-quality dental porcelain. Each of these crowns is customized to be indistinguishable from your other teeth, matched in shape and color to look like the other teeth in your mouth. Once installed, a dental implant will look, feel, and perform just like a natural tooth.

Are dental implants for me?

Dental implants are an effective tooth replacement option, yet may not be the best choice for everyone. Certain preexisting conditions may preclude you from being a candidate for this procedure. Also, additional treatments may be necessary to ensure your dental implant is successful. Any active gum disease or other oral health concerns may need to be addressed before the placement of a dental implant. During your consultation with us at Hamilton Dental Care, we will assess your oral health, as well as your health history, to determine if a dental implant is the right procedure for you.
