What are long term benefits of dental implants?
2 August 2023
When it comes to tooth replacement options, dental implants have gained widespread recognition for their exceptional durability and longevity. While the initial cost of dental implants may be higher compared to other tooth replacement options, they offer a cost-effective long-term solution that outweighs their upfront investment. Let’s explore why dental implants are a cost-effective choice when considering tooth replacement options.
Durability and Longevity
Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution. The implant itself is made of biocompatible materials such as titanium, which is known for its strength and durability. The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone through osseointegration, creating a stable foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth.
Once the dental implant has integrated with the jawbone, it provides a secure and permanent solution. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime, eliminating the need for frequent replacements or adjustments that may be required with other tooth replacement options.
Reduced Risk of Complications
Unlike other tooth replacement options, such as removable dentures or dental bridges, dental implants offer a reduced risk of complications over time. With dentures, for example, the fit can become loose over time, leading to discomfort, slippage, and the need for periodic adjustments or relining.
Dental implants, on the other hand, become a part of your natural oral structure. They do not rely on the support of adjacent teeth or adhesives for stability, reducing the risk of complications such as shifting, discomfort, or damage to neighboring teeth. This eliminates the need for additional treatments or repairs, saving you both time and money in the long run.
Preservation of Oral Health
Another cost-saving aspect of dental implants is their ability to preserve oral health. When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone can start to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. This can lead to bone loss, which not only affects the integrity of the jawbone but also impacts neighboring teeth and may necessitate additional dental treatments in the future.
Dental implants replace the missing tooth roots and stimulate the jawbone, preserving its health and density. By maintaining the integrity of the jawbone, dental implants support the surrounding teeth, preventing shifting and potential dental issues. This reduces the likelihood of future costly treatments such as orthodontics, extractions, or additional tooth replacements.
Improved Quality of Life
The value of dental implants extends beyond their cost-effectiveness. Dental implants significantly improve your quality of life by restoring your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. With dental implants, you can enjoy a varied and nutritious diet, engage in social interactions without embarrassment, and experience enhanced self-esteem.
This improved quality of life has a positive impact on various aspects, including personal relationships, professional opportunities, and overall well-being. The long-term benefits of dental implants, both in terms of oral health and quality of life, make them a cost-effective investment in your overall dental health.

What Our Patients Say
Dr Nell is a fantastic dentist. Jolly, reassuring, and extremely knowledgeable. I am sad to be leaving and moving out of the area, as he and his team are outstanding.
Fantastic! Extremely welcoming and very friendly, great advice, very professional, sensible pricing. I’m a new customer and like many perhaps anxious moving to a new practice, but I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout, it’s refreshing to have ‘old school’ service and logical advice. I can highly recommend these ladies and gents! 😁

Joined this new local dental practice on 10/5/23 and had my 6 monthly checkup with dentist, having previously filled out online health questionnaire & having had my dental history sent from previous practice. It was the most thorough checkup ever. Everyone was very caring & very professional. Very informative Dentist, charming dental nurse and friendly reception staff. Booked hygienist for the following week. Very impressed with my first visit. Its very local to me which is a bonus. Would definitely recommend the practice.Thank you Coniston.
