Choosing Dental Implants over Dentures – Worth Your Extra Investment Marietta, GA

Choosing Dental Implants over Dentures – Worth Your Extra Investment

If you have missing teeth and have dismissed the option to have dental implants due to the cost, you might want to reconsider. Dental implants are prosthetic screws usually made of titanium that are placed in the jawbone to take the place of missing tooth roots. Once they have been allowed to heal, the screws fuse to the bone and are anchored securely into place. Prosthetic teeth can then be attached to the implants to take the place of missing teeth.

Although there is no denying that dental implants are more expensive than removable options such as dentures, partials or bridges, they offer important advantages for a long term tooth replacement solution. Dental implants can give you a much higher return on your investment. Here are a few important reasons why choosing dental implants over dentures is worth the cost difference.

Authentic – Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. For this reason, they are now the gold standard tooth replacement option for dental professionals. Unlike dentures, you will never have to worry about clicking, popping or slipping. In fact, most people never even notice a dental implant versus a real tooth. Confidence goes a long way in improving your quality of life, especially when it comes to your mouth.

Convenience – The additional investment you made for dental implants will be worth every penny each day when you realize you don’t have to deal with taking your dentures or partials out for cleaning or worry with messy denture creams. Dental implants are a long term solution with optimal convenience in your daily routine.

Your Diet and Health – Have you considered what dentures can do to your eating habits long term? With dentures, many patients are forced to eliminate foods that are harder to chew. Unfortunately, the foods that are left behind are often foods that are high in fiber and carry vital nutrients. Denture patients usually replace these foods with softer foods that are higher in carbohydrates and calories. Long term these eating habits can lead to obesity and contribute significantly to heart disease and diabetes. Dental implants not only allow you to eat the foods you love, but they ensure you are not forced to eliminate nutrient-rich options from your diet.

If the obvious improvement in your quality of life isn’t reason enough to spend the extra money on choosing dental implants over dentures, there are many dental practices that are offering attractive payment options to support this gold standard tooth replacement solution. In fact, Gilreath Family Dentistry in Marietta is able to provide dental implant therapy to patients at a great savings because the entire implant placement procedure occurs right here in our general dental care office. Whether you need one tooth replacement or a full set of new teeth, let us restore your smile today with dental implants at Gilreath Family Dentistry.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
