Why A Dental Implant?

Posted on Dec 13, 2013 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

When deciding on a new easy chair for my den, I could have purchased one for less than the one I ended up purchasing. My decision to buy the higher priced chair was made based on its construction, workmanship, materials used and overall feel that would give me many years of pleasure.

While we all want to be budget conscious, it is just as important to make wise investments that give us true value. When contemplating tooth replacement, cheaper options may be a partial or crown-&-bridge combination. Even though a Dental Implant will cost more initially, it is designed to last your lifetime.

Partials and crown-&-bridge typically need repair or replacing periodically. Plus, they can affect the health of neighboring teeth. It is a fact that the next tooth you’ll lose is a neighboring tooth when replacing teeth through these means. This is not the case with Dental Implants.

Dental Implants do far more than merely restore missing teeth. They protect your overall oral health, preserve underlying jaw bone structure, and create a wise investment you’ll never regret! Call (828) 274-9440 for more information.
