Dental Implants

The price tag associated with dental implants have stopped people in their tracks. We understand the burden of the cost of implants, but we also want to make sure that you understand the benefits associated with this cost.

Here are 4 reasons you should consider splurging for the best dental implants Austin has to offer.

#1. Dental implants are an investment

It’s true. If you’ve started a retirement account, invested money in stocks, or loaned money to a family member so that they could achieve something great, you’ve made an investment. If you’ve chosen to exercise weekly, eat healthy, and listen to your body, you’re making an investment in your health. Why should your teeth be any different?

Making choices about your health and wellness can be difficult, particularly since it’s sometimes hard to determine which choices are really beneficial and which ones are just a part of the current fad. Dental implants are not a fad. They are an honest investment in your long-term oral health.

Implants do cost more than other restorative procedures, but they also last longer and provide substantial health benefits. This isn’t just an aesthetic investment. With proper care and regular checkups with your dentist, your implants could last you the next 20 years!

#2. Can you put a price tag on quality of life?

This is a serious question. People have a tendency to go out of their way to help other people, especially loved ones, while managing to leave their own needs on the backburner. Whether or not this is something you do, it is something to think about. Teeth, while we may not think about it until it’s too late, are essential to our overall quality of life: we use them when we smile, talk, and eat. What’s more, our teeth and jaw support the muscles in our face–if we don’t have our teeth and start to experience bone loss in our jaw, the shape of our face will change.

Implants actually come in and take the place of the root of your tooth, meaning that it prevents bone loss, preserves the shape of your face, and gives you permanent tooth replacement to have the freedom to speak, eat, and smile confidently! What is your quality of life worth?

#3. There are serious health benefits

Implants provide obvious aesthetic benefits, but they are also a great choice for the preservation of your oral structures. Not only do dental implants prevent bone loss, but they also stop your teeth from moving into the unoccupied space, which can lead to a host of other problems involving your bite, gum disease, and tooth decay.

When your teeth start shifting around in your mouth to occupy newly-opened space, your bite will change, meaning that your ability to chew and speak will change. Additionally, this can lead to jaw and head pain.

It’s not just bite issues that you should be concerned with. When your teeth shift around, they can become more susceptible to gum disease because they can be more difficult to clean or trap bacteria more easily.

And bone loss, the most clearly aesthetic concern, will actually change your appearance. Bone loss in your jaw will cause the muscles in your face to sag, resulting in an appearance that could you leave you looking a lot older than you actually are.

#4. Your smile is worth it

At the end of the day, the most important thing is whether or not you feel good in your own skin. We know how important your smile is to your self-confidence, and we know how important it is to speak and eat freely–to really feel like you are in control of your life.

Implants give you freedom to live your life like you did when you had your natural teeth. It is possible to have that freedom and confidence again. There are so many things to be happy about in this world, and if you aren’t smiling, laughing, or enjoying your favorite meal, then it might be time to reclaim some of that happiness for good.

Splurging on dental implants can help you take back your life. No matter how you lost your teeth, getting back to a place of confidence is possible.

At the end of the day, ask yourself this: Is my happiness, confidence, and smile worth the cost of implants?
