Pros and Cons of Dental Implants

Aesthetic Family Dental is one of the premier dentists Gilbert Arizona locals trust for cosmetic dentistry. One common procedure our clients ask about is dental implants. Like any procedure, there are many benefits but also certain risks associated with dental implants. It is important to know both the pros and cons so that you can make an informed decision.

One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they are permanent and will last the lifetime of the patient. They do no need to be replaced like a crown or bridge might need to be, and they do not need to be removed like dentures. If you choose dental implants, you will only need to pay for them once and do not have to incur the cost of replacing them again and again.

In addition, dental implants look very natural. Most patients are pleasantly surprised by how aesthetically pleasing their smile is after implants. The crowns that goes on top of dental implants are fitted for your teeth and chosen to match the coloration of your smile. They provide a very natural look. In fact, dental implants provide the most natural looking tooth replacement. They are easy to bite with and will feel like your natural teeth.

One con that is often brought up with dental implants is their cost. They can be expensive when compared to other options. Their higher cost is often reflected in their superior quality. If cost is an issue, we are happy to help with financing and dental insurance claims to help you get the best implants for a price that fits your budget.

In addition, dental implants may not be appropriate for patients with diabetes or other specific medical issues. Call us today to schedule your implant consultation to determine if dental implants are the right solution for your cosmetic dental concerns.
