There is no question that dental implants are the best form of tooth replacement. However, they do tend to cost more than other options. You might be tempted to shop around and choose the practice that offers the cheapest care. Extreme caution is in order. Many patients have lived to regret their choice to get “discount” dental implants instead of choosing a reputable dentist right from the beginning of their journey. This blog post discusses why you should be wary of any bargains that seem too good to be true.

Dental Implants Are Not Cheap

Dental implants are an excellent value for patients, but they are not by any means cheap. The entire treatment process costs quite a bit of money. Your dentist has to buy the implants, and they should have advanced technology in their office to help them perform the procedure. They should partner with reputable companies, have strong infection control policies in place, and work with a knowledgeable support staff. All of that can cost a lot of money! Plus, dentists have to plan to make a reasonable profit from any procedure they perform.

If a dental practice offers extremely low prices, there is a very good chance that they are cutting corners somewhere in order to keep their own expenses low.

Your Oral and Overall Health Could Be Affected

Many patients have experienced serious oral and overall health problems after getting cheap dental implants:

  • Infections can attack the tissue around implants and cause them to fail.
  • A poorly placed implant may cause nerve damage or penetrate the sinus cavity. Such issues may lead to long-term pain and other complications.
  • Low-quality restorations can interfere with the way the upper and lower teeth work together, leading to jaw pain and bite problems.
  • In some cases, cheap dental implants have failed just a few weeks after placement.

It Is More Affordable to Get High-Quality Treatment from the Start

It can take a lot of money to correct the issues caused by low-quality dental implant treatment, so it is best to find a reputable dentist and trust them with your care. Here are some tips to help you:

  • Compare prices. If a practice charges significantly lower prices than others in your area, it may be best to look elsewhere for care.
  • Ask questions. Do not hesitate to ask about a dentist’s experience, the equipment they use, and the techniques they use to keep patients safe.
  • Read reviews. Online reviews can provide a lot of information about what to expect from any implant dentist.
  • Learn about payment options. Many trustworthy dental practices have payment policies in place to help patients afford treatment. For example, you may be eligible for financing.

Do not become a victim of cheap dental implants! Do some research and partner with a dental team that genuinely cares about your well-being.
