In many situations the cost of the treatment is only a little more than the cost of more conventional treatment with crowns and bridges. Dental implants can be expected to last for 15 years, at least. Many patients with dental implants would consider this treatment as a worthwhile investment in their health and well-being.
There are other advantages too. An implant to replace a single tooth avoids the need to cut down the teeth either side for crowns to support a bridge. Poorly fitted dentures often mean you can’t eat or speak well due to the dentures moving about. Teeth attached to an implant do not cause this problem.
