Are Dental Implants Affordable?

Dental implants are very affordable. Especially when you take into consideration the improved quality of life and the cost effectiveness in the long term.

The American Dental Association says that dental implants last the longest as compared to dental bridges and dentures. They can last a lifetime if they are properly taken care of.

We use world renowned dental implant manufacturers

You will be surprised at how cost effective Dental Implant quotations  are at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic even with internationally recognised manufacturers. We offer the best possible price given the high quality craftsmanship that goes into designing the implant.

Dental Implant Quotations at Silver Oaks Dental are cost effective

If two patients were to come in and get their teeth analysed and have a CBCT scan both patients will leave with two different treatment plans and quotes. Dental implant quotations depend on a number of factors, the number of dental implants one needs, the bone one has in their jaw as well as the shape and structure of the person’s teeth.

It also depends on the manufacturer that the patient chooses. We work with the top three dental implant manufacturers that are internationally recognised i.e Straumann, Nobel biocare and Megagen.

If you get cheap dental implant quotations that are too good to be true run away…. You know what they say you get what you pay for! so do NOT be fooled .

Dental Implants have to be done by specialists with several years of experience in placing dental implants and have the qualification to back it up. At the end of the day inserting dental implants is an operation that deals with the nervous system. Only an expert should be inserting dental implants with several years of experience and expertise.

The true cost of dentures in the long term are more expensive

When you first look at your dentures or bridges quote compared to a dental implant quote you will be pleasantly surprised at the dentures/bridges quote. Even though the costs for dentures and bridges are a lot less in the short term. They actually cost a lot more in the long term. You need to change your dentures every 5 years.

Initial Cost Vs Total Costs – Dentures require you to change them every 5 years with a dentist due to the change in bone structure and the more bone you lose the more the denture won’t fit. You will also spend more money on fixtures and adhesives with dentures. Dental implants are more affordable in the long term.

The American Academy of Dentistry suggests that people get dental implants rather than dentures

The American Academy of Dentistry suggests people get dental implants rather than dentures. So that they can maintain the bones in their jaw and not lose them over time due to no root in their teeth. It is the healthiest option possible.

The Convenience Costs – Dental Implants are very convenient from an emotional perspective. You will never have to be scared of your implants falling off unlike dentures and you don’t have to clean your implants or soak them overnight in a container. You can brush as normal like you would your natural teeth.

A recent dental implant case above where a patient came from Saudi Arabia to see Dr Roy Richard-Huson.  He came to us hoping to get the smile he always dreamed of and needed to have it done professionally. 

He felt very embarrassed to smile and very uncomfortable when he use to eat.

His dentures would fall out and felt very embarrassed. He lost most of his teeth over the years and the ones that he had were broken.

Klaus had several implants done at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic. Dr Huson first took before pics so he could analyse Klaus’s teeth using Digital Smile Design. Custom made models were designed for Klaus by on our on-site lab.

With just 3-4 appointments Klaus was a new person with a brand new set of teeth. He was very happy as he could bite and chew and live happily again. He also says a lot more women have been looking at him as he looks much younger!
