What are the differences between expensive and affordable dental implant care?

Dental consumers sometimes believe that a dentist who charges more can provide the best dental implant care. This attitude stems from the often held belief that if something is expensive, it is automatically better. I don’t believe this logic is applicable to choosing from whom and where you will get dental implant care.

You, the potential dental consumer, should know exactly what you are paying for, especially when choosing expensive dental implant care over affordable care. You must also familiarize yourself with the facts that truly identify the positive results of dental implant treatment.

Today, research into the outcomes of using specific brands of dental implants is largely done in academic settings. Most of this research is funded by the companies whose dental implants are being tested, creating a situation with obvious potential for conflict of interest. The majority of these studies are of very short duration and exist primarily to promote new implant products that benefactor companies are eager to bring to the dental market as soon as possible. These types of “selfish” studies are of little value except for marketing.

When considering the costs of fitting and restoring dental implants, it becomes clear that the final cost of dental implant care by the dentist for you is determined very subjectively. By subjective, I mean that the outlay of a dentist to buy a dental implant, place it and restore it, is largely limited to:

1. What the dentist chooses to pay for the materials.

2. Optional charges for direct and indirect forms of advertising decided by the dentist.

3. The dollar amount (click on Appendix 2) the dentist wishes to charge for the time spent performing a dental implant-related service. These fees are basically based on what the dentist wants to make as a profit. It’s a sentiment, not necessarily based on competitive factors.

Additionally, as a marketing advocate that I am, I believe consumers need to be aware of hidden costs and other clever selling strategies beyond “hype” when responding to advertisements, bait and change are common in all industries, including dental. field of implants. You need to research who is treating you, their experience, and their results.

I believe that the prudent consumer seeking dental implant care must educate themselves to make good decisions in choosing who to care for them, now and in the future. Informed buying is consumers’ responsibility to themselves.
