Affordable Dental Care in the Sioux Falls Area, SD
As we grow older, the probability of losing teeth to decay and gum diseases increases. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), two thirds of US citizens have already lost more than one tooth by the time they cross 40. Unfortunately, as your needs for dental care multiply with age, that is the time when your ability to earn also dwindles. In addition to age, there are other factors such as neglecting your oral health. Tooth decay from sugar in foods and drinks, and certain habits like cigarette smoking which can cause dental problems almost at any age.
High Cost of Dental Treatment
Health care in the United states is very costly, especial dental care. As an example, the cost of the lowest quality partial denture starts above $300. These low end partial dentures have their own problems. Therefore, users often think they would be better without them. Barely acceptable quality can cost close to $1,500. That’s not pocket change either, especially for those with limited financial resources. Good quality partial dentures could cost beyond $5,000, and possibly twice as much for a full set. The best, and the most reliable solution, of course, is dentures which are supported on dental implants. Cost of an implant solution can vary from $3,500 for a low- end partial to as high as $90,000 for the high-end solution!
Tooth Replacement is Necessary
Replacing your missing natural teeth is not an option! Teeth are as essential for your health as other parts of your body.
If you do not replace your missing teeth you get handicapped in many ways such as:
- Poor Physical Health – Teeth are necessary for chewing food. Breaking it down into smaller particles, so that it can be easily digested. When you lose some or all your teeth, and don’t replace them, your body is unable to derive energy from food, thereby deteriorating your physical well being.
- Difficulty in Chewing – Your ability to eat and chew decreases, resulting in digestion problems and general deterioration of health.
- Impaired Facial Esthetics – Your smile is impaired, drastically, if front teeth are involved. That is a big social handicap, affecting your social appeal, undermining your self-esteem.
- Difficulty in Speech – You will be unable to pronounce certain words properly, again undermining your social effectiveness..
Tooth Replacement Options
Depending on the number and location of affected teeth multiple options are available:
- One or two teeth can be replaced with bridges
- But if one loses more teeth, partial dentures or implants become necessary.
- When most of the teeth are missing a full denture, either conventional or implant supported, is required.
