Factors of Dental Implant Cost

Dental implants offer many advantages of health and convenience for our patients. Doctors Nelson and Lowy recommend that patients become familiar with the differences between dentures and dental implants in order to make a well-informed decision.

Security: Patients who wear dentures often complain of the slipping and shifting that accompanies dentures held with adhesives. Dental implants, on the other hand, integrate and become a part of your body, rendering a strong bond for talking, laughing, and chewing with confidence.
Versatility: Dental implants, in Louisville, can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or your entire mouth. They can also be used to securely hold other dental appliances. Dentures, however, can only be used when many or all of your teeth need to be restored.
Materials: Dentures consist of plastic, metal, and acrylic, materials that may irritate your gums while dental implants are titanium. Titanium is biocompatible and successfully integrates with your bone.
Health: The fact that dental implants in Louisville are able to integrate with the jaw bone is a critical benefit for patients on many levels. When a tooth falls out, bone loss begins at the site of the missing tooth root. Dental implants can stop the process of bone deterioration. The titanium posts that are implanted into the jaw serve to stimulate the bone, much like your natural tooth root would. Conversely, dentures are unable to affect bone loss, as they simply rest on the gums. In fact, patients who seek dental implants after wearing dentures for an extended time may need grafting due to bone loss that occurred while wearing dentures.
Maintenance: Dental implants require no more maintenance then your natural teeth do while dentures necessitate special care and may need replacement due to wear or change in bone structure. Dental implants are an investment that last a lifetime.
