Many people who have missing teeth consider getting dental implants, but when they do so they think about it from the wrong perspective. They think only of the cost of dental implants.
Now it is true that the cost of dental implants is more than the cost of dentures, but then this applies to anything really. If you want the best of something, then it is very likely going to cost more than the alternative, whatever that may be. If you want the best car it is going to cost more than a standard run-of-the-mill model.
Do you want the best jewelry? It costs more than the alternative because it has diamonds and sapphires and gold compared with other pieces that are made of colored glass and a gold-plated chain.
Let’s face it: we all really want the best of whatever it is that we need, rather than second best. Fair enough, if you really cannot afford the best, then second best will have to do.
The Real Issue about Implants Is The VALUE
However, when it comes to replacing missing teeth with dental implants it is not enough to consider the cost alone. Yes, they cost more than dentures. But the real issue here is the value of dental implants. What does that mean for you?
Do you really want dentures that you have to fit into your mouth using glues, and that you have to take out at night and stand in a glass of water? Do you want something that, although it will make you appear to others as though you have a full set of teeth and a lovely smile, can slip about in your mouth when you are eating, and will still not let you eat everything that you may want such as nuts or other tough foods?
Or would you prefer to have your original teeth back again? OK, dental implants are not your original teeth, but they are as near a replacement as you can possibly get because they look perfect. More importantly, they behave in exactly the same way that your original teeth did. They cannot slip about and fall out of your mouth. You can eat anything that you want, including foods that you may not have been able to eat for years. That is the value of dental implants.
