Dental Implants Can Save Costs & Improve Quality Of Life

In the most recent edition of The International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, researchers have concluded that dental implants offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional treatments for tooth replacement.

This was also cited on PubMed, the US National Library of Medicine located at the National Institutes of Health, is based on a systematic review of all available studies published in English between 2000 and 2010 relating to the cost-effectiveness of various tooth-replacement options.  The results:

  • For single-tooth replacement, implant-based solutions were generally cost-saving or more cost-effective when comparing with traditional bridges.
  • For patients with full dentures, implant-supported solutions were associated with higher initial costs than traditional (non-fixed) dentures. However, the consensus of most studies was that, over the long term, dental implants represent a cost-effective treatment option.
