    For Most, Implants Beat Dentures, But At a Price

    Dental implants are an exciting option to dentures, as they are more stable than dentures (no more loose dentures!). When making the decision, consider the low cost of maintenance for the implants, compared to the higher cost for treatment. Also, insurance plans do cover implants.

    Key takeaways:

    • Dental implants are now the preferred treatment for people with a missing tooth or a set of missing teeth.
    • Implants are permanent, often attached with a titanium screw to the jawbone and can be worn without discomfort.
    • Patients find it easy to maintain the implants compared to the dentures. The implants are also healthier to the gums and to the bone.

    Implants also will help protect your bones over time. “The screw in your jawbone will trick the body into thinking you still have teeth,” said Dr. Ira Cheifetz, president of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. “The bone continues to grow and thrive.”
