When you purchase something, you expect it to be taken care of, right? At least for the time being. Take brake pads on your car. You replace them, but in a few years, you’ll need to replace them again. In a few years after that, you’ll replace them again. What if there was a brake pad that never had to be replaced? This brake pad could last for the life of your vehicle! You’d better believe we would pay a little extra for that type of lasting solution. Unfortunately, there is no such brake pad (that we know of). However, there is a lasting restoration that will stay in your mouth for the rest of your life: the dental implant.
Typically, you might get a cheaper restoration without thinking too much about it. The dentist says it will last 10 years, and that seems like a long time, so you go with it. However, in 10 years, that restoration might fail. Then you get to start all over. Depending on your age, you might not want to do this for the next 5 or 6 decades. Not only would it be unnecessary stress, money, and time, but it would just be annoying. Especially when you know there’s a better option out there waiting for you.
The Dental Implant’s Longevity
When you get a dental implant, you are getting a permanent restoration. The small titanium post will fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. That thing won’t be coming out any time soon! We will place a dental crown on top of the implant to complete your restoration, and you’ll be set for a long, long time. Though the cost is a little bit more upfront, the maintenance costs down the road will be nothing compared to that of lesser restorations.
