We’re getting close to the deadline for filing tax returns, which means we all have finances and investments on our minds.
It’s something we spend a lot of time talking about at the Fordham Dental Office because it’s one of the factors that our patients have to consider when trying to choose the best way to replace missing teeth.
Today, Dr. Gandhi and our team want to make sure you know a bit more about the kind of investment dental implants can be for you in more ways than one!
An Investment In Dental Implants Is A Wise Choice
We always want to know that an investment we make will be worth it. That’s what motivates us to do the research and know as much as we can about all our options.
You don’t buy a house after the first and only showing, usually!
You don’t buying a car without pricing around and taking a couple of test drives.
The same is true when you invest in your smile.
You want to know as much as you can about all the different strategies for replacing missing teeth before you make a final decision.
Let’s take a look at what happens when you invest in implants at one of our two Bronx locations and what makes them a wise choice:
#1 Invest In Your Physical Health
The older you get, the more likely you’ll have to keep pouring money into expensive medical bills. A treatment here, a procedure there… they can really add up the more your health needs change as you age.
That’s how dental implants can save you in dental and medical healthcare costs in the future. You’ll see a wide spectrum of savings, big and small!
#2 Save On Extra Supplies
You won’t have to buy extra supplies to maintain your dentures for the rest of your life, like special adhesives or specific cleaning products for removable teeth, for example. In the short term, they’re not all that expensive. But over time, they certainly add up when you have to buy them over and over.
Dental implants are maintained the same way you keep real teeth clean, with normal brushing and flossing each day. No extra tools, supplies, or care are needed!
#3 Save On Replacements Later
You also don’t have to replace them every couple of years to ensure a proper fit.
This is a larger financial benefit when you invest in dental implants to replace your teeth.
They remain strong and secure for far longer than any other tooth replacement option, perhaps even your lifetime! This saves you money in future dental treatment, denture replacement, and even surgeries to restore receding gums or lost bone mass in your jaw.
#4 Save Yourself From Poor Nutrition
Dental implants are placed inside your jawbone to fuse with it and help it to continue growing.
This gives your bone the stimulation it needs to stay strong and structurally sound.
Along with providing the stimulation your jawbone needs, you also get a more powerful bite so you can easily chew harder, more nutritious foods you need for optimum health.
In this way, investing in the best replacement method ensures a proper diet helps you avoid the costly medical issues that come with poor nutrition.
#5 Save Yourself From Gum Disease
The best way to avoid gum disease is to keep your mouth clean of tiny food particles that feed harmful bacteria.
This is tough when you lose a tooth and have nothing but a vast empty space behind where food and debris can get stuck.
That’s why replacing a lost tooth is essential, but only dental implants can fill that empty space in the most advantageous way for your physical health and help you avoid gum disease.
#6 Invest In Your Emotional Wellness
Part of leading a healthy life means investing in your emotional wellness.
You know, in other words, that eating well, getting enough rest and exercise, and taking care of yourself goes only so far. All that can do little if you’re living in a constant state of stress and anxiety because of how heavy emotional burdens can physically manifest themselves.
That’s why we do all we can to provide the most natural-looking, attractive replacement options for our patients. We know how valuable it is for you to look and feel beautiful, just as much as it is to be healthy.
Your teeth will look great, and you also have the benefit of preserving your youthful facial structure. In fact, one of the dilemmas denture-wearers face is having to take them out each day for cleaning only to see the reminder staring back at you in the mirror of how missing teeth alters your appearance.
Dental implants keep that intact and give you a lovely smile you’ll feel confident about, protecting your self-esteem and allowing you to go after the life you want!
