Dentist in Putney shows patients that single tooth implants are an affordable option

Tooth implants, also known as dental implants, are a popular choice for patients in the Putney area who have lost a single tooth. Dr. Etienne Potgeiter, dentist in the community, may suggest these restorations for patients who want an affordable, long-lasting solution to their tooth loss. They are also extremely versatile and can be used for supporting dental bridges and dentures.

Dental implants have been used for many years to replace missing teeth. These titanium metal posts are placed into the jawbone during oral surgery and dental crowns, bridges, or dentures are put over them to help them blend with the existing smile and make them functional. Many patients love the ease of use with dental implants—they are placed, healed, restored, and patients no longer have to worry about them. They are cared for in the same way patients care for their existing teeth with regular brushing and flossing.

Many patients are worried that these tooth implants are not nearly as affordable as other solutions such as dentures and bridges. Dentures and bridges are economical; however, the downfall is that they don't last as long. They can also contribute to the shrinking of the jawbone which results in a sunken appearance of the mouth—making patients look older. Additionally, they often need to be repaired, replaced, and can break while dental implants last a lifetime.

When patients look at dental implants over the long-term, they are extremely affordable. Though men and women may pay more upfront for their dental implants, they find the value of the implants is proven over time. Since dental implants last a lifetime, patients can divide the cost by the many number of years they will enjoy their restoration to see how affordable they truly are. Less upkeep and replacement costs over the years will also contribute to this economical solution.

Patients in and around the Putney area can speak with Gentle Dental Putney's dental team to learn more about single tooth implants, bridges, and dentures and determine which treatment plan is most appropriate for them. Dr. Etienne Potgeiter is committed to assisting new and existing patients in improving the overall health and functionality of their smiles with many cosmetic restorations.
