No one wants to believe that they have wasted money on anything. It’s just like the moment you realize that the large item you just bought went on sale a few weeks after you brought it home! We want to know that when we invest our money, it is going to be a good investment. We see patients all the time who aren’t quite convinced that dental implants are worth the cost, but we have a few things to consider when thinking through the investment of implants.
The alternative to dental implants is dentures. The upfront cost is undeniably in the favor of dentures, but in order to gauge an investment, you need to think through the entire investment. After a few months or years, you will begin to feel the weight of the denture investment when you see the endless adhesives, special brushes, and cleansers that are required for your dentures. You’ll also be paying for regular denture adjustments and possibly the replacement of your dentures! Over time, the cost really adds up!
The Dental Implant Investment
When you make the decision to invest in implants, you are investing in a lifetime solution. You’ll never have to replace your implants or buy special equipment to care for them. Dental implants are cared for just like regular teeth! You’ll go in for routine appointments just like you’ve always done, and there’s rarely a need for extra dental work. While the upfront cost is more than dentures, that cost will give you a healthy, functioning smile for the rest of your life!
Considering an investment is about looking at more than just the initial cost. Don’t be tempted by the low price of dentures when there’s a better solution in dental implants.
