Dental implants are an excellent option to dentures, but they come at a higher cost than bridges and dentures. With the overall improved stability of dental implants (no more loose dentures), they might be worth the cost. Some dental insurance plans cover the cost of implants.

Key takeaways:

  • Dental implants are now the preferred treatment for people with a missing tooth or a set of missing teeth.
  • Implants are permanent, often attached with a titanium screw to the jawbone and can be worn without discomfort.
  • Patients find it easy to maintain the implants compared to the dentures. The implants are also healthier to the gums and to the bone.

Implants also will help protect your bones over time. “The screw in your jawbone will trick the body into thinking you still have teeth,” said Dr. Ira Cheifetz, president of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. “The bone continues to grow and thrive.”
