It’s possible you don’t know about affordable dental implants. If you are considering implants, you may already know that they function just like your natural teeth and that they prevent the bone loss that always accompanies missing teeth. You may even know how important it is to choose the most qualified dentist who will use the best materials.
But you may also think they will be too expensive for your budget or that the surgical procedure will be too traumatic. Fortunately we can offer a simpler, more affordable option without the risks associated with using cheap materials.
Benefits of Affordable Dental Implants
Implant-supported dentures are normally anchored by six to eight dental implants. But snap-on dentures require only two. The implants used with snap-on dentures are full size, and don’t cause the same strength and stability concerns that mini implants do. And even two implants will prevent bone loss in the area where they are placed. The photo to the left shows an arch of snap-on dentures and the implants they attach to.
In addition to being more affordable, snap on dentures will eliminate many of the problems that can make wearing regular dentures intolerable. You dentures will not slip, so you will be able to chew your food more efficiently, and that is one of the most important benefits after the prevention of bone loss. In addition, the upper denture will not need to cover your entire palate, so you’ll be able to articulate your words more easily and enjoy your food like you used to.
