The bottom line is that there are disadvantages to the dental implant process. The reality is the pros outweigh the cons. Overall, the process is a long-term benefit for a short term sacrifice. Dental implants are by far the best option in the majority of situations when teeth are lost.
Tooth loss is unfortunately something that millions of Canadians have to deal with every single year. Tooth loss can happen because of decay, gum disease, infection, and trauma to the mouth.
Losing teeth can also mean losing self-confidence, because your smile changes dramatically. This is where dental implants can help as an alternative for missing teeth.
Are you one of those people who hates smiling because you hate your smile? You have missing teeth, but you don’t want dentures.
Dental implants seem like the right choice, but you have many questions. The main one is, are they too expensive? Does every dentist provide dental implants?
Finding a dentist who does dental implants and who can answer your questions might be a challenge.
Are you are also wondering if implants are considered to be major dental surgery? Are there options to being sedated? Will the dentures look real? Do different dentists have different prices for dental implants? Will your insurance pay for the cost of implants or only a portion? Can you finance your implant treatments?
These are all common questions that people have when considering implants.
