Find out which tooth loss treatment is ideal for your smile.
If you’re dealing with tooth loss we congratulate you on taking your first steps toward finding a tooth replacement treatment option. After all, if you’re reading this then you are most likely doing research to learn more about what options you have available to you. Time is certainly of the essence when it comes to treating tooth loss, so the sooner you can make an informed decision the better. However, it can be hard to decide which treatment is right for you. If you’ve been considering dental implants in Kenosha, find out how this treatment compares to dentures. Dr. Mario Maritato can help you get the smile you have always wanted.
Which treatment option is right for you?
If you are extremely healthy and do not have cavities, uncontrolled health problems or untreated gum disease, then dental implants could be a good option for you.
If you are a smoker, however, you are at an increased risk for implant failure. If you don’t want to quit smoking, then dentures may be a better option. However, your Kenosha dentist Dr. Maritato seriously recommends ditching this habit if you want to have healthier teeth and gums.
Other things to consider
Besides being healthy enough for surgery you also need to keep these factors in mind:
- Dental implants are not a quick fix. It takes several months to a year to get your implant, so if you are looking for a faster tooth replacement method than you may want to opt for dentures.
- Dental implants are also more costly than dentures. While implants require fewer repairs, adjustments and replacements than dentures (therefore you may end up spending less money in the long run if you opt for implants), you will certainly spend more upfront on getting your implant.
- Take into account whether you are paying for these medical expenses completely out of pocket or whether your insurance company will pay some of the cost. We know medical expenses are a large factor when it comes to choosing the right dental treatment.
