What to Look For When Choosing the Right Dental Implant Clinic
Whilst it’s true that dental implants can offer a far more permanent solution to broken or missing teeth, it’s also true that it’s going to set you back quite a lot of money. Therefore, whether you’re searching for a clinic dealing in dental implants in Richmond, London, or anywhere else in the country then it pays to do your homework and select the right clinic. So what do you look for? Here are some pointers….
There’s no getting away from the fact that dental implants are becoming more and more popular and are therefore big business. As a result dental clinics dealing in cosmetic and restorative dentistry are opening at an alarming rate, all of whom are hoping to get a slice of the action. Irrespective of the shiny new interior and modern equipment, what really counts is the quality of the dental team and how experienced they are. General dentists can perform implant surgery after a short training course, but an implantologist is an experienced specialist dealing with all aspects of the surgical implant procedure and much more besides. If in doubt why not ask them about their qualifications? Any reputable dentist is going to be open and honest and will expect questions of this nature, so doesn’t be afraid to ask.
Here at Sheen Dental we feel that before anyone undergoes treatment for a dental implant in Richmond we want them to be totally sure in what they are doing as well as being completely at ease. This is why we offer a complimentary consultation where you can get any questions that you have answered, meet the team and take a look at our facilities. By being transparent about what we do we know that we’re gaining the trust of our patients and this is vitally important. In essence a clinic that doesn’t appear to be transparent about what they do, or won’t give genuine answers to the questions that you really want to know, might be best avoided.
Recommendations are a tricky business as in the case of website testimonials, they can easily be forged. Therefore, you may want to seek recommendations from other sources such as word of mouth. Speak to family and friends and ask if they have had personal experience of a dental implant clinic and whether they would recommend them. Look on reputable website forums and even seek out hand written letters of recommendation.
At Sheen Dental we’re a well-established practice who has long-term links within the local community. As a result we’ve been successfully treating generations of local families for many years.
