Decatur AL Affordable Dental Implants
Dental implants can be affordable today for many patients, thanks to implant-supported snap-on dentures.
Dr. Drake and Dr. Wallace understand that our patients want to stabilize their dentures, but may worry about the cost of having multiple implants. That’s why we offer the option of snap-on dentures, secured with only two implants per arch. If you’re worried about traditional, unattached dentures slipping, sliding or falling out—but you’re also concerned about the cost of traditional implant-attached dentures—we’d like to show you a way to get the peace of mind you desire at a budget-friendly price.
How Dental Implants Help Overcome the Challenge of Traditional Dentures
Patients who choose traditional, unattached dentures face multiple challenges. The roots of your natural teeth stimulate bone tissue in your jaw, keeping the bond strong and supportive. Without the tooth roots, the jawbone begins to deteriorate and you lose the necessary support for your dentures. Consequently, dentures become loose, causing pain and instability. Your dentures slide around in the mouth, making it difficult (or impossible) to bite, chew, or speak clearly. The pain and embarrassment can make patients avoid going out in public. Your health may even suffer, as you struggle to get the nutrition your body needs to sustain itself.
For many patients, snap-on dentures anchored by dental implants provide an ideal solution to these challenges. By simulating the natural tooth roots, implants help prevent bone loss in the jaw so that dentures maintain their like-new fit. Implants also provide stability and hold your replacement teeth securely in place. Imagine going out to dinner with friends and family again, enjoying your favorite foods and lively conversation without worrying about your teeth. You’ll quickly regain your confidence, knowing your dentures will look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth.
The Affordable Dental Implant Alternative
Traditionally, implant-secured dentures require as many as six to eight implants per arch. As important as securing your dentures may be, this can be cost-prohibitive for many people.
To address this challenge and make snap-on dentures available to as many of our patients as possible, Drake and Wallace Dentistry offers a budget-friendly approach to implant-supported dentures. Instead of using six to eight implants to anchor your teeth, we can perform this procedure using as few as two implants per arch. Once your jaw heals, providing a solid foundation for the implants, we will secure your dentures to the implants to provide stability and comfort.
The Importance of Quality in Affordable Dental Implants
Here at Drake and Wallace Dentistry, we don’t believe you should have to sacrifice quality for affordability. That’s why we perform this procedure using fewer, high-quality dental implants. Compromising on the quality of the implants can leave you with unsatisfactory results, potentially setting you up for problems or even implant failures in the future.
We take great pride in offering our patients an affordable dental implant option that does not deviate from the high quality standards we’re known for.
