Dr. Robert Cain offers dental implants to his patients in Knoxville, TN. Dental implants are the closest restorations available to your natural teeth. Dental implants are a long-lasting investment in your overall health and may help to prevent the need for further advanced dental care. The initial cost of dental implants may be more costly than other tooth replacement options such as dentures. But dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth and often require no future maintenance costs.
Cost of Dental Implants vs Dentures and Dental Bridges
Dentures and dental bridges cost significantly less than dental implants up front. Dentures and bridges require a lot of care though and may need replaced, realigned, or rebased over time. This cost can exceed the cost of dental implants easily over the years depending on the wear and tear. Dental implants cost more but are a permanent solution and look just like your natural teeth. If cared for properly, they will last forever.
