Are implants better than dentures for replacing missing teeth in Dolton?
No one wants to go through life without any teeth, but replacing them seems easier said than done. Today’s dental patient has more options than ever, and that can be confusing. If you are looking for a dentist who will give you honest answers and quality dental work at a reasonable price, then you are looking in the right place. Dr. Dietrich founded Pleasant Dental® with the goal of making dentistry comfortable, convenient, stress-free, and affordable for residents of Dolton and surrounding communities.
You have probably heard that implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. That is very true, but they also have the highest initial price. The cost is offset by the fact that implants can last a lifetime, whereas other restorations typically need replacing after a number of years. We offer a number of flexible financing options to help you afford the smile of your dreams. However, we know that every budget has a limit, and implants may not fit in yours. If that’s the case, don’t worry. Implants may be the best choice in most cases, but they are certainly not the only excellent choice.
If you are getting a full denture, we can stabilize it with just a few implants, which is a good middle ground. This can give you most of the benefits of full implant treatment, with a much lower price tag. Alternately, if you are looking for the most economical solution, you may prefer a traditional removable denture. Upper dentures tend to fit much better than lowers. Dr. Dietrich will discuss potential retention problems, food restrictions, or other issues before you commit to treatment.
Contrary to many people’s expectations, traditional dentures do not look like fake teeth, at least not when they are designed well. Dr. Dietrich has a background in cosmetic dentistry, and he knows what it takes to create a dazzling smile. Dentures can be just as beautiful as natural teeth, implant supported restorations, porcelain veneers, or any other type of smile.
You deserve to love your smile, and Dr. Dietrich can make that happen, at your convenience, within your budget. If you are ready to repair or replace your teeth, choose the dental office where customer service and common sense have never gone out of style. We are called Pleasant Dental® for good reasons!
