Are Implants For Me? A Second Chance
It is all too common that when our team starts discussing dental implants with people they already have the notion and convinced themselves that they are not good candidates for dental implants. The sad part is that this is almost always a misconception, and not actually the case. There are actually very few reasons that truly prevent a patient from getting dental implants. Some of the most common misconceptions that we hear are:
- “I am too old to get dental implants…”
- “They are too expensive…”
- “They sound painful…”
The truth is most of the time age is not something preventing patients from getting implants. Why not receive treatment that can help you truly enjoy and gain immense satisfaction for the rest of your life? Why not invest in something that can improve your health and potentially add on years to your life?
It is true that implants are an expensive treatment and technology. However, how can you put a price on something that can change your life? Major tooth loss can become a debilitation that can seriously affect your physical and emotional well-being. If you started to have major problems with your hip, would you find a way to get the necessary replacement to transform that joint almost back to new? We as people sometimes forget how important our oral health is. At DentureCare & Implant Solutions, we offer several different levels of treatment solutions to accommodate financial concerns.
The only real way to determine if you are a candidate or not for dental implants is through a thorough consultation and evaluation.
Before the advances made in implant dentistry, the best, and really only, option to predictably restore tooth loss has been dentures (both fixed bridges, and removable dentures). However, as stated, there are many negative side effects that can follow tooth loss that these options cannot help, and sometimes even worsen the issue. Now with implants, we have the ability to take these restorations to that next level, and halt many of those negative effects of tooth loss. Implants also give us a brand new array of treatment options patients never thought possible! Get back to enjoying life, to enjoying eating some of your favorite foods, and socializing and laughing with confidence. The sad truth of tooth loss is real and very common in the world, but with dental implants we now have hope for a second chance!
It is time to STOP COPING and time to START LIVING!!!
