Dental Implants – When Paying Less Just Might Cost You More

Let’s face it, who isn’t attracted by the tantalising signs of a bargain? After all why would you pay full price for something when you could get it for a song? The problem is that when it comes to considering dental implants in Richmond, or indeed anywhere else in the UK, adopting this policy could prove to be a bad move. In fact, it could end up costing you far more in the long term. Here’s why.

Dental Implants Richmond

Expensive for the right reasons

When you take a dental implant from a recognised manufacturer and examine it closely, you’ll see that it really is a precision piece of equipment. Days, months and even years of testing and development has gone into making it as good as it can be and this has to be paid for. Not only this, the implant also utilises costly components such as titanium. Yes the very same titanium they use on F1 racing cars and the Space Shuttle. Therefore knowing what you know now, it’s easy to see how implants certainly don’t come cheap.

Conversely, if a clinic is using a cheaper implant from a lesser known manufacturer, you can bet your bottom dollar that it’s not as ‘tried and tested’  as other well-known brands are. In addition, it may even be made from lower grade components to keep the price of manufacture down to a minimum. It stands to reason then that if you’re using the services of a Richmond dental clinic that’s using a cheaper brand of implant, then you’re going to be taking more of a risk with your dental implant in Richmond than you would if you went with a dental clinic who use only the very best brands.

So what about going abroad?

More and more people are being lured abroad by the promise of dirt cheap prices. However, there are plenty of risks associated with this too. For instance how do you know how qualified the dental surgeon carrying out the implant procedure is?  Secondly, what happens if there are any post-surgery problems or issues? What come-back (if any) do you have? The other issue of course may well be the language barrier. Can you make sure your concerns and questions are understood? All of these issues are legitimate concerns that you might not have when you choose a reputable and experienced clinic in your home country.

The bottom line is that when it comes to your health, then you really don’t want to be messing about. So for this reason when it comes to dental implants, you generally always get what you pay for.
