Are Dental Implants Really Worth It?

Find out why so many people are saying “yes" to dental implants. 

Missing one or more teeth? If so, you may be wondering whether you should get dental implants from our Fishers, IN, dentists Dr. Kevin Ward and Dr. Molly Dwenger; however, we get that the upfront price tag may make people wonder if dental implants are all they are cracked up to be. Honestly, there are several reasons dental implants are worth the investment.

They are the Closest Restoration to Real Teeth 

Most people are looking for a tooth replacement that is as close to a real tooth as possible. This is one of the top reasons people in Fishers, IN, choose dental implants. While nothing is better than maintaining your natural teeth, when this isn’t possible, dental implants provide the next best thing. They truly act and feel just like a real tooth.

Implants are Designed to Last a Lifetime 

Implants are made from biocompatible titanium, which means that once they naturally fuse with jawbone and gum tissue they will become a permanent part of your smile. Implants are remarkably strong and resilient and aren’t likely to be rejected by a person’s jawbone. They also boast a very high success rate.

Implants Can Save You Money in the Long Run 

While implants may have a higher upfront cost, the good news is that once they are placed they are made to last the rest of a person’s life with the proper care. Other tooth replacement options will need to be replaced every few years, which can cost you more over the long-term, but not dental implants. Implants rarely, if ever, need to be replaced.

Implants Prevent Bone Loss 

Another complication of untreated tooth loss is jawbone loss. Since the jawbone isn’t getting the stimulation it needs from all of your tooth’s roots, it will begin to deteriorate. As a result, the length of the jawbone will shrink, causing the cheeks to cave in and skin to sag. By getting dental implants as soon as possible after tooth loss, it will stimulate the jawbone in the same way as real tooth roots, preventing bone loss.

Still not sure whether dental implants are right for you? Our Fisher, IN, dentists Dr. Ward and Dr. Dwenger would be happy to sit down with you to discuss implants and other options, so you can make the best decision regarding the health of your smile.
