  • Are Dental Implants Really More Expensive Than Traditional Dentures?
Are you considering dental implants as a tooth replacement option, but you’re worried about the cost? Here’s why dental implants may be the most affordable denture solution in the long run.

For patients who are missing one or more teeth, advancements in prosthetic denture technology means that there are now more convenient and natural-looking tooth replacement options than ever, including flexible partials and tooth implants.

Whether you opt for traditional dentures or dental implants, it’s important to never ignore tooth loss because it can lead to many undesirable consequences, such as:

  • Changes in facial shape
  • Increased risk of gum disease or tooth decay
  • Further tooth loss
  • Lower quality of life
  • Trouble following a balanced and healthy diet
  • Speech difficulties

Are Dental Implants Worth The High Cost?

While the cost of implant supported dentures has reduced significantly in the last few years, the short term costs associated with this denture solution are higher than any other conventional tooth replacement option, causing many patients to ask: are they really worth the high cost?

While the answer to this question is dependant on a patient’s specific lifestyle, budget, and oral health needs, there are many benefits of choosing to support your dentures with tooth implants, including:

  • They will look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth.
  • Implants help maintain your bone and facial structure.
  • An implant supported denture will preserve the health of your remaining natural teeth
  • Patients will enjoy improved speaking abilities
  • There are no food restrictions or worries about your implants slipping out

Dental Implants Have a 98% Success Rate

Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. In fact, this denture solution has the highest documented success rate when compared to any other option, with a success rate of over 98%. This means that when taken care of properly, your denture implants may never have to be replaced, unlike traditional dentures that may require replacement every 5-7 years.


Dental Implants Have Lower Long-Term Costs

While it’s true that the initial cost of dental implants is higher than other denture solutions, they make up for this because they are so low maintenance, their long term costs are lower.

1. Dental implants are easier to clean. Unlike traditional dentures that require soaking and special solutions, all you need to do to take care of your implants is brush, floss, and visit your denturist at least once a year.

2. You’re unlikely to need any repairs or replacements. Unlike traditional dentures that require repairs, relines, and replacements every 5-7 years, dental implants can last a lifetime when taken care of properly.

3. Dental implants are fixed. Dental implants are permanent, which means you never have to worry about putting them in or taking them out. Unlike partial dentures, implants aren’t at risk of breaking and they boost your confidence because they will not slip out of place.

What does this mean? Overall, the cost of dental implants can be comparable to other tooth replacement options. While they cost more initially, they are less expensive than traditional dentures over time, while providing better results.
