At Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio in Staten Island, NY, we offer a wide array of restorative dentistry solutions, including implant dentistry. When we propose this to patients who have lost adult teeth to disease, decay or injury, one of the first questions we hear is often “are dental implants are worth the cost?”
As your chosen dentist in Staten Island, we have only one answer to such a question about dental implants, and it is simply “yes”. Dental implants are worth the cost for many reasons, and we would like to itemize them here for you to consider and use when you are making your decisions.
So, just how and why are dental implants are worth the cost? Let’s first consider what your costs might be without implants. If you have lost a tooth to injury or decay, it means your natural bite is going to begin to change. The surrounding teeth have a tendency to shift into the empty spaces, causing your upper and lower teeth to come together differently. This puts new and uneven wear and tear on them and that can lead to everything from fractures and chips to jaw issues and new areas prone to decay. You might see the need for more and more dental care and even treatment for issues like TMJ or bruxism.
Naturally, this tells us that dental implants are worth the cost because they preserve the natural bite. They also eliminate any risk of bone or gum loss that typically occurs when you lose a tooth. Dental implants are worth the expense because they allow you to eat, speak and look like yourself, they are low maintenance, painless and last for decades after being successfully placed. If treated properly, they will perform without fail for many years afterward, and all without any threat of decay or disease.
