The 3 Biggest Myths That Will Cause You To Overpay For Dental Implants

Facts Vs Myths About Dental Implants

Let’s face it, if you have been told that you need dental implants or an All On 4 – Full Mouth Treatment, odds are that you have no idea how to determine what a “Fair” Price would be for the treatment.

There are so many places offering dental implants at different price points that it’s difficult to know where to start when looking for the best price. When is the price too high? When is it too low? Or too good to be true? How do you find that “Sweet Spot” in which you get the best Long-Term Result for the lowest overall cost? It can be very confusing… And its that confusion that leads to bad decisions and in the end… overpaying for substandard results!

The Key to avoid overpaying and getting maximum value for the money that you spend boils down to understanding the three biggest myths in implant dentistry! Once you understand these three myths, you will be able to Easily and Objectively get the most value out of your dental implant treatment!

#1  The Price That They Show You is the “Real Price” 

I’m sure that you have seen the advertisements… Implants starting at some low price, or full mouth implants for some low monthly fee. They are all playing the same game. And the game is to convince you that what you pay is the price. When in fact it’s not… That’s just the initial transactional cost of starting the dental implant treatment. There is the transactional cost to get started and then there is the Estimated Lifetime Cost Of The TreatmentAnd Knowing and Understanding that number is infinitely more important than the upfront cost.

Did you know that there are dentists that use materials that are only designed to last for a few months just to cut down on the upfront cost?

The low upfront cost in Implant Dentistry is oftentimes used as nothing more than a bait and switch. Imagine that you get a price that you are happy with only to realize 3 months later that there are hidden maintenance costs, extra visits, teeth that consistently crack or break, implants that are mobile, and a general slew of issues that cost not exponentially more money, but also a huge amount of your time and energy.

#2  The Results Will Be Consistent from one Dentist to Another

It’s easy to believe that if you are looking to get an All On 4 done that you will get the same results from one doctor to the next simply because they are both doing an “All on 4”. What they don’t tell you is that although many use the same terminology for full arch dental implants, they could be using a totally different methodology to generate a totally different result.

The fastest growing market in implant dentistry is the Failing and Ailing Dental Implant Market. This is due to a few different reasons…

First, there are many new doctors with little to no experience or understanding of how to generate a consistent results now doing these treatments and basically figuring it out as they go on patients

Second, because there are other doctors that cut corners on materials, surgical guides, implants, and prosthetics, just to reduce the upfront initial cost… Which inevitably and unknowingly leaves patients with an Astronomical Lifetime Cost of the Treatment!

#3  You Think That You’re Buying Dental Implants But You’re Not…

They lead you to believe that you are buying a treatment. But that’s very misleading, because the treatment is not what you live with… The treatment is basically done in a few days but its the results generated from that treatment that you are buying. 

How many questions did they ask you in regards to the type of outcome that you want? What do you want as far as function, aesthetics, maintenance, and longevity?

What you are paying for is the predictability of achieving whatever result that you deem to be ideal. And that differs from patient to patient. But that’s not what happens… They basically sell the same protocol to everyone and just assume that you will be happy with the result. That’s a very dangerous assumption to make because no matter how much or little you spend on the actual treatment, if you are not comfortable and happy with the result then it’s money wasted.

The results are what you are buying, the treatment is just a vehicle to get you from where you are now to the desired result, and the process of choosing should revolve around who can get you, YOUR IDEAL results for the lowest lifetime cost.

Understanding these myths is one thing, but making the right decision and understanding what will give you the results that you are looking for and the lowest lifetime cost is another… but don’t worry we are here to help.
