Making Dental Implants Work for Your Budget

white-arc-bottom

So, you’re not thrilled with the idea of wearing complete, removable dentures. After all, having the dentures slip or fall out can be embarrassing. Or, maybe you’re concerned about the jawbone shrinkage and facial collapse that occurs when all of your teeth are missing. It can be disheartening if removable dentures aren’t for you but replacing your teeth with individual implants isn’t in your budget. Well, we have options to make our Naperville dental implants affordable and we can secure your dentures in place to avoid slippage and ensure they look and feel more like your natural teeth.

Options for Affordable Dental Implants

Snap-On Dentures

Snap-on dentures use only two standard implants. Because the cost is per implant, only having two of them, as opposed to the four to eight usually used to secure dentures, makes snap-on dentures more affordable. After your jawbone heals around the implants, the dentures are snapped into place.

Regardless of which of these options you choose, you’ll be able to smile, speak, chew and laugh with confidence, knowing your dentures will stay in place. By supporting your dentures with implants, we can also prevent them from resting on your gums and putting pressure on your jawbone, which accelerates jawbone shrinkage and facial collapse. Our affordable dental implants in Naperville can dramatically improve your smile and your quality of life without breaking the bank.

Mini implants cost half as much as standard implants because they’re smaller in diameter. We can strategically place mini implants and permanently fasten your dentures to them. While your dentures won’t feel quite as secure as they would with regular implants, they will feel significantly better than removable dentures. As an added bonus, the surgery is simpler and the healing time is faster.

Experience is Key

When it comes to dental implants, experience is crucial. When you’re on a budget, it can be tempting to sacrifice quality to get the lowest cost. However, dental implant mistakes can be even more costly. A lot of care must be taken to ensure that implants are property placed, including reviewing your complete medical history and analyzing 3D CT scans and diagnostic studies of your bone structure and nerves. Careful planning and quality fixtures are essential to creating a healthy, beautiful smile. When shortcuts are taken, the effects can be serious, including painful nerve damage, persistent infection and even loss of the implants.
