Dental Implants – A Smart Investment with an Amazing Return
Ask anyone about dental implant costs and they’ll probably reply that the expense is extortionate. Firstly, you may be surprised that the cost of dental implants is nowhere near high as you perhaps initially thought. Secondly, although this sophisticated treatment may require more of an investment than other methods such as removable dentures or bridges, there is a very good reason for this. When you opt for dental implants in Richmond, or elsewhere in the UK, you are choosing an advanced technology which offers the very best means of replacing a missing tooth or teeth; teeth that are practically indistinguishable from your existing teeth; and teeth that will last for 20 to 30 years or even longer if cared for properly. So that you can understand better the cost of dental implants and why the price tag is that much higher than traditional methods, let’s has a look at the benefits and advantages that dental implantology offers:
The cost and understanding what your money is paying for
When making such an important decision as to invest in dental implants, it certainly helps if you understand just what you are getting for your money. Let’s look at the benefits:
The artificial crowns which are fitted to the abutment of a dental implant are fashioned from the highest quality ceramic and carefully colour blended to match your own teeth so that they look just like natural healthy teeth. The result is a flawless smile with teeth so natural that even close friends and family won’t know you have implants, unless of course you tell them.
Restore bite functionality
Chances are that when you had missing teeth or were wearing dentures, you were limited somewhat in your choice of foods and biting into an apple would have been a definite “no go”. A dental implant functions in the same way as a real tooth and lets you eat normal foods with a healthy natural bite force. By investing in dental implants in Richmond, you can order a juicy steak in your favourite restaurant, without any fear of embarrassment when chewing it.
Long term solution
Implants last considerably longer than other forms of tooth replacement. In fact, they can last a lifetime if cared for properly and need very little future attention or restoration. Compare that to dentures which at best may last 15 years before they need to be replaced.
Comfort and self-confidence
Because a dental implant replaces the entire tooth from root to crown, they don’t feel like a foreign object in your mouth. Unlike dentures, they won’t move when you speak or eat, won’t cause you to slur your words, and won’t rub your gums and make your mouth feel uncomfortable and sore. Dental implants look and act just like real teeth, feeling comfortable and restoring your self-confidence.
Are you looking for a tooth replacement that is long term, functional, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing? In other words are you looking for a replacement that bears very little difference to your natural teeth? If this is the case, then a dental implant in Richmond would be a wise investment for you.
