Today, let’s talk about Dental Implants: to do or not to do
Implants can be lost immediately after surgery.
If you're thinking about getting a surgery for dental implants, there are a number of things you'll need to take into consideration to determine if that's really your best option. The cost for a dental implant and whether you have a dental plan is at the top of that list. Dental implants are far from being affordable for the regular Jane and Joe. It is definitely a strain for even those in the upper middle class income range. A single dental implant can run you anywhere between $1,600 and $8,200 without any dental insurance. It is actually recommended that you stay away from any Dental Implant tooth that cost below $3,500. Consider that less can often cost more pain, anxiety, complications and bucks in the long run. Consider also that dental implants on a whole, irrespective of cost and how carefully done, can cause the same.
SO, THE INTERESTING QUESTION IS: WILL ONE DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE LEAD TO ANOTHER?
The immense cost aside, the pain, time it will take, and whether or not you will need to repeat the process years later also comes into play. The fact is, dental implants are really not a healing solution. Your natural tooth and root are gone and will not regenerate. The procedure involves implanting metal screws into the jaw bone, and as you age, loss of bone mass within the jaw and wear and tear from chewing can cause the implant to degenerate to the point where a second implant becomes necessary. Cost for dental procedures are forever increasing.
HOW TO READ AND UNDERSTAND THE SUCCESS RATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are priced per tooth. Three damaged or missing teeth equates to three implants that will be assessed and priced differently. The location of the implant, such as front tooth or back tooth, has a lot to do with dental implant failure rates. You may have seen statistics showing favorable results for dental implants, stating that there is only a 2% failure rate. The truth is that this is for front teeth, not back teeth dental implants that actually bear most of the wear and tear from chewing action. Front teeth are generally used for biting, not chewing. The failure rate for back tooth is almost 100%. This is due to the absence of the periodontal ligament that would prevent the implant from digging into the jaw, causing terrible pain, severe and potentially permanent injuries such as nerve damage, sinus perforation, and facial numbness.
EXPENSIVE DENTAL IMPLANTS COME WITH PAIN, WHICH IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS ALTERNATIVE?
Dentures is an alternative to dental implants. However, dentures supported by implants can be just as problematic and costly as an actual implant. Because it is thin and weak at the point where it meets the implant, the denture can break in as little as a few months. There is also the issue of the immense discomfort experienced when the denture tips over the crest of the gum and lifts away from the palate in the back of the mouth. The hooks coming loose and losing their ability to snap in place any more complicates things even more.
A painless, long lasting and much less costly procedure, namely MyDentalWig, is a far better option over dental implants.
