Many people who suffer from ill-fitting or uncomfortable dentures know that implant-supported dentures could solve their problems for them. They may also know that dental implants prevent bone loss. But many people don’t think dental implants will fit into their budgets, and many others are afraid of the surgical procedure. We want everyone to be able to benefit of implant-supported dentures, so we offer options for affordable dental implants.
Affordable Dental Implants Considerations
If you are looking for affordable dental implants, it’s very important not to be swayed by the cheapest price. Your first consideration should be the quality of the dentist and the fixtures. Dental implant techniques take years to learn, so some dentists who offer them aren’t even fully qualified. Dr. David Pumphrey has pursued advanced postdoctoral training in dental implants, and he has placed more than a thousand of them.
In addition, many unscrupulous dentists try to cut corners in the diagnostic phase or in the quality of fixture they offer. Cheap dental implants are not affordable in the long run because they can compromise your dental health or fail completely. We use only the highest quality fixtures, and we provide our own 3D CT scans.
What are Affordable Dental Implants?
Usually, implant-supported dentures require six to eight implants per arch. But there are ways to support denture arches with two to four implants. These methods require much less surgery and recovery time as well.
The Benefits of Affordable Dental Implants
These affordable dental implant methods provide many of the same benefits as regular implant-supported dentures. They can make articulating your speech easier again, because upper implant-supported dentures don’t have to cover the entire palate. And they increase chewing efficiency. Your dentures will no longer slip or fall out at embarrassing moments. More importantly, they prevent bone loss and preserve the jawbone in the area of the implants.
