You’ve probably used somewhere seen advertisements like “Dental Implants for only 300 euros?”
In this article we will try to explain what it was a publicity stunt and what is reality and what you should pay attention to when deciding on the installation of low-cost dental implants.
All dental implants are the same quality and it is therefore logical to choose the cheapest
Is it really so? The most common way of advertising of dental implants is to offer a HUGE discount on the price of the implant. In most cases, dental implants, and not at a discount, it is the actual price, but why is it less expensive than the competition? The point is this:
A dental implant is a titanium peg that ušrafljuje in the bone and is used to replace a missing tooth. After the dental implant binds to bone on it can be made compensation-type crowns, bridges or dentures. The most important characteristics of the implant shape and prepares its titanium surface through which the implant is linked to the bone. What is the preparation of a more subtle and complicated (ie. As much money and time invested in the research and improvement of each new implant), the dental implant is more expensive and better. Leading manufacturers of implants have gone a long way since the beginning of the implementation of the implants, dental implants when they were just regular titanium screws to the present implant on its surface have a special “coating” that stimulate the production of bone around the implant and faster binding and splicing of the bone in which they built . Cheaper implants are just copies of the leading brands of inferior quality and entails a greater risk of possible complications in the future and the loss of the implant. No cheap brand of implants does behind many years of clinical research into the effectiveness of their implants. The success of the leading manufacturers of implants in the world (Straumann and NobelBiocare) was 95% in the period of 40 years!
At the present time, the price is indeed often the deciding factor when choosing anything, including dental implants. But if for yourself you want the best, think more about how to implant that will be incorporated into your bone is of good quality, carry out detailed planning of the installation using the latest diagnostic procedures (CT scan jaw before implant), the surgeon who installed dental implants has sufficient experience and to compensate for the implant is made of specialists in prosthodontics.
Price in such cases is important, but not the most important factor in making a decision.
