Pros and Cons of Dental Implants

The following is a brief guide to the the Pros and Cons of Dental Implants through my effort to adequately inform you about every aspect of dental implant treatments. Here we go:


  • Dental Implants are meant to be a permanent replacement for missing teeth. This means that it’s probably worth the money if you’ll never have to worry about another denture or your gum line receding if you have a bridge.
  • Dental Implants look and function just like real teeth. Many of our clients have had such great results that almost all of the people they talk to say that their teeth look just like natural teeth.
  • Dentists can replace any number of teeth using dental implants. Most people will get a single tooth replacement and some others may get the All-on-Fourâ„¢ Dental Implant Treatment (a full mouth dental implant treatment.) The best thing about a single tooth replacement is that there’s no need to grind down the adjacent teeth for a bridge because a titanium implant can be embedded directly where the tooth was missing.
  • Dental Implants prevent the deterioration of the jaw bone (what is called bone resorption.) This is one of the most important pros of dental implants and is vital for keeping your teeth in great health for years to come.


  • One of the most noted cons of dental implants is the cost. And yes, it’s true that dental implants are expensive. Based on the value of the procedure, however, it’s more than worth it. Just understand that replacing teeth permanently is a wonderful concept and that it will consequently correlate into the price.
  • Some dentists and implant centers don’t provide financing or options to pay for your dental implants and you’re not always covered by insurance policies.
  • The crown of the tooth implant may need to be replaced after about 10-15 years due to wear and general maintenance.
  • The whole process can be a bit painful. Although, not everyone experiences harsh pain or swelling. Most feel quite a bit of discomfort and sometimes bruising can appear.
  • The process of embedding a titanium implant can be a long process and must be stretched over a period of time and involves a handful of visits to the dental clinic.
  • For some patients, they may not qualify because there’s not enough bone to place the implants. This is more of an issue with people who have had few or no teeth for an extended period of time such as an elderly person who has had just dentures. If you’ve recently had a tooth go missing this shouldn’t be a problem.
