3 Reasons Why Dental Implants May Not Be Right For You

Implant supported dentures are an innovative tooth replacement solution and a great alternative to traditional dentures. However, dental implants have certain limitations, such as higher costs, that may not make them the right choice for every patient.

For many patients, implant supported dentures offer an advanced tooth loss solution that is more natural looking, comfortable, and durable than traditional dentures. Dental implants have many benefits when compared to dentures and they will:

  • Last for up to 20 years, if taken care of properly.
  • Improve patients’ eating and speaking ability
  • Prevent bone loss in the jaw
  • Look, feel, and function more like natural teeth
  • Not slip or require messy adhesives
  • Eliminate sore spots or any other discomfort associated with traditional dentures

3 Reasons Why Dental Implants Might Not Be The Right Choice For You

Dental implants are an extremely successful, natural looking, and reliable tooth loss solution, however they are not the right option for every patient. Before deciding if this is the right choice for you, you must understand certain limitations that come with this tooth replacement solution.

1. Dental Implants Cost More

Initially, dental implants cost more than other tooth replacement options such as dentures, which may not make them suitable for all patients. However, you may want to consider that dentures come with higher maintenance costs, such as more regular repairs and relines.

In addition, dentures require replacement every 5-7 years while dental implants, with the proper care, can last for a lifetime.

Worried about the cost of dental implants? We can help!

At Future Smiles, we provide flexible financing options to make paying for your dental implants as smooth and easy as possible.



2. You’ll Need Surgery

Unlike traditional dentures, getting dental implants is an extensive process that requires surgery. Before deciding on this option, you must remember that all surgeries carry certain risks, such as:

  • Anesthesia-related complications
  • Nerve damage
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection

However, when the treatment is performed by a qualified denturist, getting implants is a very safe and effective treatment that will lead to a beautiful, healthy, and lasting smile.



3. Your Denture Implants MIght Fail

The success rate of denture implants is very high at 98%, however there are certain cases in which your implant may be rejected or fail. Reasons for this include:

  • Smoking
  • Gum disease
  • Certain medical conditions such as arthritis or diabetes
  • Poor oral hygiene

In order to ensure the success of your dental implants you must quit smoking, practice good oral hygiene and treat any dental issues, such as Bruxism, before your dental implant surgery.
