The Dangers of Cheap Dental Implants | Beachside Dental

The dangers of cheap dental implants

A dental implant is a metal fixture, usually a titanium rod, inserted into the jawbone below the gums. It effectively replaces the lost root of the tooth, acting as a new anchor for a false tooth. Implants are incredibly secure, they fuse to your jaw in fact, enabling the denture, crown or bridge fitted to be fully stable when eating, talking or playing a contact sport. People require implants for a range of reasons; severe decay, trauma or complications with prior surgery may have caused the loss of one or more teeth, necessitating them.

Here at Beachside Complete Dental Clinic we strongly recommend dental implants over other removable replacement options. Long-term, they are by far the best and most functional alternative to your natural tooth structures.

Don’t Risk a Cheap Dental Implant

There’s no getting away from the fact that dental implants are not cheap. And it is for this reason some are tempted by the cheaper overseas market for their implants. However, there is serious risk involved with receiving this treatment from a cheap overseas (or even Australian-based) dentist, and the old saying ‘you get what you pay for’ may become a truism for many who choose this option.

A rare, but significant, danger associated with poor quality, cheap dental implants is developing peri-implantitis, an infectious inflammatory gum and disease that leads to the loss of the supporting bone. Other consequences of second rate implants from a cheap dentist, can include damage to surrounding teeth, interference with nerves and blood vessels, and various sinus problems. Whatsmore, overseas dentists who give cheap implants cannot offer a vital part of the care programme – lifelong follow-up and maintenance. Whilst dental implants price comparison can be vast, it is important to look at factors beyond price.

At Beachside Dental Clinic we recognise the concerns our patients have and marry first rate, experienced dentists with the best materials and latest technology to offer a comprehensive, world-class dental implants procedure. By doing this we heavily alleviate the risks involved with cheap dental implants, and instead focus on quality when it comes to our dental implant products.
