In an article written by Jane E. Brody of The New York Times, Ms. Brody relates her own personal experience with the best option for replacing lost teeth; dental implants.
Why Dental Implants are More Economical
As stated by Ms. Brody in her New York Times article, she sought out two professional opinions and found it to be true! Dental implants, in the long run, are much more economical.
There are several factors that contribute to this claim. The first is that dental implants are permanent. With the dental implant, a porcelain tooth is permanently attached to an anchor surgically placed in your jawbone. This acts as a natural tooth that is rooted inside of your gum. The porcelain tooth will not decay.
Conversely, with the apparatus of a dental bridge, adjacent teeth and the gum area may suffer due to the inability to floss between teeth. This can cause decay in surrounding teeth or worse, gum infection.
Dental implants allow flossing that removes harmful bacteria caused by particles of food that cultivate disease over time. This is a tremendous benefit and can save you the time and money of having to return for further dental procedures and even periodontal work.
Lastly, the part of the dental implant that is permanently placed into the jawbone exercises the gum while chewing; naturally. This natural chewing exercise keeps the jawbone strong and healthy avoiding potential gum deterioration.
Both the ability to floss and the exercising of the jawbone aid in keeping the surrounding teeth and gums healthy for the long term. This translates to less time spent at the dentist and a substantial decrease in potential oral health problems.
