Keeping your own teeth is by far the best choice but when this isn't possible dental implants provide the next best thing. Here we look at the top 5 benefits of dental implants as a choice for replacing missing teeth.
1. Second to only a real tooth
The implant replaces the root of your tooth and can be connected to a post and crown to provide a functional and natural looking replacement.
Unlike other tooth replacement options dental implants should last you a very long-time! The length of time they last will be determined mainly by how well you look after them, just like natural teeth you need to keep them nice and clean and have regular check ups to ensure the implants (and the rest of your mouth) is healthy.
3. Safe for other teeth
Unlike a conventional bridge, dental implants can be placed without causing any damage or risk to the adjacent teeth.
4. Cheapest option (long-term)
Whilst dental implants may seem like the most expensive option for replacing a tooth, when you look at the long-term value you may be surprised. Dentures and bridges have a limited life-span, regardless of how well you look after them, so this means that you may pay more than once for this type of treatment. On the other hand, dental implants may cost more at the outset but if you look after them, you can expect them to last a lifetime.

There is no getting away from the fact that Dental Implants are expensive, BUT we encourage you to look at this expense as a long-term investment.
On average our implants costs from £2,400 for a straight-forward single implant & crown. If well cared for, you can realistically expect a dental implant to last for around 20 years or more. When you compare the longevity of this treatment option with those of alternatives such a bridges or dentures you begin to see the real value for money that dental implants can offer.
A denture can be expected to last you around 3-5 years meaning over the course of 20 years you could end up spending A LOT more than the cost of a dental implant.
Similarly, a bridge to replace 1 tooth is likely to last around 5-8 years so again over the course of 20 years you will likely spend far in excess of the cost of a dental implant.
So what are the benefits of dental implants?
A dental implant will provide a fixed and predictable solution for replacing missing teeth. You will avoid the challenges commonly experienced with other solutions such a dentures moving and being loose and uncomfortable.
Replacing missing teeth will give you a new found confidence improving your self-esteem.
Replacing missing teeth with a fixed solution will renew your freedom to eat whatever you like without restrictions, a steak, crusty bread, apples nothing will be off limits!
