Dental implants are very cost-effective. At Advanced Dental Care, a single tooth replaced by an implant costs about the same as a three-unit fixed bridge to replace that same single tooth. But with a fixed bridge, the two adjacent teeth are cut down and crowned, shortening the lifetime of those teeth and leading to additional extractions.
Consider that a traditional bridge will most likely lead to the loss of the supporting teeth, or will increase the need for future root canals and extractions. Owing to bone loss, traditional dentures will need to be replaced. Dental implants eliminate all these problems and offer you a long-term solution to tooth loss with none of the unpleasant and expensive problems associated with other methods.
