Are you ready to pay the price for not getting a dental implant in Wichita?

If you have lost a tooth, it is very likely that your dentist in Wichita has suggested that you get a dental implant. Though implants come at a price that may give you some hesitation, you should consider if you are willing to pay the price of not getting an implant.

Dental implants are not your only restoration option if you have lost one or more of your teeth. You may still get dentures, or you can use a dental bridge to restore your smile. Though different restorations may be advisable in different situations, implants still provide some unique benefits in most cases. In order to understand the difference, you first need to understand the way your teeth work and the way implants work to replace a tooth.

Your natural teeth have roots that are anchored in your jawbone to keep them in place. When you lose a tooth, your jawbone is left with nothing left to support and it often deteriorates as a result. Implants are unique restorations in that they replace the root of the tooth in addition to replacing the crown. By doing this, a dental implant restores the natural structure of your mouth by giving your jaw and gums something to support. This benefits the health of your whole mouth and your remaining teeth.

Though dentures and bridges can also replace missing teeth and help to keep other teeth from shifting, most often they cannot stop the deterioration of your jawbone. Eventually, this deterioration will give your face a sunken-in appearance and may lead to further tooth loss. This is why if you choose dental implants as your smile's restoration, you are more likely to keep the rest of your smile healthy and complete for much longer. Some added benefits of dental implants are that they are permanent which means they should not need to be replaced and they will be much easier to clean since they function just like real teeth. Don't let the cost put you off; you may end up paying a higher price later on if you decide against implants.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
