Considering the Cost of Dental Implants

Cấy ghép nha khoa đã có sẵn trong nhiều thập kỷ. Tuy nhiên, Đối với hầu hết bệnh nhân, họ vẫn còn là một khái niệm tương đối mới. Khi xem xét các chi phí cấy ghép nha khoa và so sánh các dấu ngoặc kép, có một số điểm quan trọng mà nên được giữ trong tâm trí.

Tuổi thọ

When comparing the cost of dental implants to other tooth replacement methods such as dentures and bridges, it is important to take into consideration the longevity offered by dental implants that is not always afforded by other, more traditional methods.

While dentures and bridges are initially less expensive, their affordability can be short-lived. Because these older methods require repair and replacement every 5-10 năm, they are often more expensive over time. By contrast, cấy ghép nha khoa, when properly placed and cared for, can last a lifetime.

Sức khỏe của xương hàm

Theo thời gian, when a tooth is missing, the jaw bone deteriorates. So while a denture or bridge may seem to function similarly to a tooth, underneath the surface damage is being done to the jaw bone and ultimately to the structure of the face. This can result in the distortion of the shape of a person’s face, leading to additional cosmetic costs down the road.

On the other hand, dental implants are made of titanium, which actually integrates with the jaw bone, strengthening it and stimulating bone growth. This preserves the natural strength and quality of the mouth, lessening problems in the future.

Dental implants can be seen as a long-term investment not only in terms of money, but also in terms of quality of life. A dental implant is the closest thing to a natural tooth. In addition to allowing the patient to eat the same healthy foods he or she has always enjoyed, it also eliminates the day-to-day hassles and possible embarrassment that are frequently caused by dentures.
