Dental implants can be the best treatment for missing teeth because they function, feel, and look like natural teeth. But not everyone can afford the costs associated with dental implants. Fortunately, there are ways to mitigate the price without risking your health with cheap materials.
Snap-On Affordable Dental Implants
The photo to the left shows a set of snap-on dentures. While most implant-supported dentures are anchored by six to eight implants, snap-on dentures can be anchored with two. And even two dental implants will prevent the progressive loss of bone from the area of the jaw in which they are placed. In addition, you can always choose to add more implants at a future time.
Mini implants are another way to make dental implants affordable. As you can see in the diagram to the right, mini implants are smaller than regular implants. The surgical procedure used to place mini implants is less involved, and the recovery time is shorter. In addition to these benefits, mini implants also prevent bone loss. The drawback of mini implants is that they are not as wide as regular implants, which makes them less strong and stable.
