If you had your choice between a Ford Focus and a BMW 750li, which would you choose? Both can get you from point A to point B…and yet, one is widely regarded as a symbol of quality in the automotive market. If only there was such a clear-cut distinction in the field of dentistry in San Antonio.
Affordable dental implants providers like to play the cost war with their competitors – offering “the same” level of service for a much lower price. Unfortunately, these bargain treatments aren’t always all they’re cracked up to be.
Not All Implant Treatments Are Created Equal
Perhaps the old adage “you get what you pay for” is tossed about too lightly these days for it to hold much weight, but in the case of dental implants, you can be certain that if a lower cost is being offered, the difference isn’t coming out of the provider’s profit margin:
- Pre-op planning: one of the keys to a successful dental implant procedure is thorough pre-planning. This can include everything from time spent getting to know your unique physiology to the actual treatment plan itself, but this is an area where many tend to cut corners. Not enough time spent here can mean, at least, an uncomfortable experience during your procedure and, at worst, poor results and the need for follow-up work to fix what was done improperly the first time.
- Technique and expertise: in any surgical application, there’s something to be said for a practiced hand and well-honed technique. Many bargain providers may be new dentists trying to carve out a niche in the market. While this doesn’t automatically mean they will do shoddy work, you should be willing to accept a practitioner of lesser experience if you choose to go with the lowest bidder.
- Implant/crown composition: probably one of the biggest areas bargain providers cut costs is in the materials used to make your implants and crowns and the facilities in which they are manufactured. The use of suboptimal materials can cause decreased durability, and function and poor manufacturing can cause equally poor fit and resulting discomfort for you in the long run.
