How much do implants Cost ? That is a frequently asked question so let’s answer it fully and honestly.

There are many clinical situations where implants are indicated and they offer a wonderful long-term restorative solution. The procedure is not just like placing a screw in a piece of wood ! It requires great planning and skill.

Let’s do an exercise together.

Draw a large circle and divide up into six segments like an orange cut in half. Make the circle big enough so that there is adequate room to write in each segment. Number the segments from 1 to 6 and label them as we go through the following details.

  1. Implants Diagnostic Phase

It is fundamental to visualise the final restorative outcome right from the start. It is all in the planning which is based on the patient’s request to satisfy his or hers desires and expectations.

The success of implants is dependent on the amount and quality of bone available. Standard X-rays and study models show a great deal to answer this question but nowadays there is an additional diagnostic tool available called a CBCT scan. This tool is a remarkable adjunct in assisting to plan properly.

Many times an implant needs to be placed in an area in which a tooth has been missing for a long time and therefore the bone has shrunk. It is possible to do sophisticated bone engineering to create an adequate implant site and that is where the information gathered by the CBCT scan is invaluable.

The science of bone engineering has advanced exponentially in recent times and there are skilled clinicians who are able to provide an adequate bony foundation by correcting the bony architecture.

Another factor to bear in mind is the arrangement and distribution of the remaining teeth both in terms of the space available for implants and their angulation. Diagnostic study casts are essential. There are many solutions to these problems which all need to be taken into account in the planning stage before any treatment begins.

  1. Surgical Phase

The surgical skill of placing implants requires advanced training through a well accredited institution over a period of at least two years. There are many implant companies that offer weekend courses. Is that the level of skill that you would be happy with?

There is a choice to make regarding which implant system to use. There are many systems available in South Africa. The choice affects the cost and componentry available to handle clinical problems that may arise.

The shape, size and diameter of the chosen implant system is decided on once the surgical site has been exposed. This is a clinical decision which oftentimes can only be made at the time of surgery.

There are various treatment options in shaping the bone to create the appropriate site for the implant placement. This decision is also made at the time of surgery.

It is essential for the periodontist/ oral surgeon to be well prepared for any clinically eventuality by having the appropriate armamentarium of instruments as well as a selection of implants themselves so as not to be caught off-guard.

3. Conscious Sedation

Nobody wants to endure unnecessary discomfort of the surgical phase of treatment. There are several options available to make the procedure more comfortable. This includes the administration of Dormicum about an hour before the procedure or of having an anaesthetist present to administer the appropriate medication for conscious sedation.

In both cases the patient will not be able to drive afterwards and therefore arrangements need to be made for transportation back home.

The option of having an anaesthetist during the procedure adds to the overall cost.

4. Restorative Phase

Before commencing with the restorative phase, the implants should be checked by the peiodontist/oral surgeon to validate complete integration of the implant body to the supporting bone.

Once the go-ahead has been given, the restorative phase can begin. This follows the plan that was established at the diagnostic phase. However it sometimes happens that the design of the final restorative construction may need to be altered because of the unavoidable positioning of the implants during surgery. Fortunately there are a host of implant components available to deal with this eventuality.

5. Dental Implants

There are thousands of implant systems available on the world market each claiming to be better than the next. In South Africa we also have a large choice of implant systems. Some are imported and some are manufactured locally. The choice of implant system affects the overall cost of the componentry but it is important not to compromise the quality of the implant system. Cheap is usually expensive. Each dentist may have a preference for a particular system based on the ease of placement, excellent long-term results and flexibility in altering the restorative design if necessary.

6.Laboratory Costs

Laboratory costs are part of the overall costing when doing implants. There are very many variables that affect the final cost which are very difficult to anticipate at the diagnostic stage of treatment. The costs may vary because of additional work to accommodate an altered design; the choice of final restorative material; and the nature of the material to be used for the metal substructure.

I hope that you now have a clearer perspective of the complexity of implant dentistry and the importance of choosing a team that has a well proven track record.

Choosing anything, be it a service or commodity, can often times be a daunting task.

A commodity is easier to choose.

You know what you want and you know what your price range is. You can actually feel and see the article that you are buying in making your choice. Finding the shop to go to is challenging. The lead may be an advert in a newspaper, magazine, radio advert or word-of-mouth. How far does one have to travel to reach the shop and what guarantee is there that the article is in stock? A telephone call can help.

Services Are Very Different

I know the story of somebody who entered into a business association based on an agreement that was drafted by an “experienced” lawyer. On presentation the agreement ostensibly covered all eventualities and was signed. The financial manager was duly appointed. Several years went past with the relationship based on the agreement working well until there was a takeover of the business. Now the new owner was faced with making staff changes. To his great surprise the financial manager found himself retrenched. The agreement was flawed. It had a loophole.

What Is Experience?

Is it perhaps doing the wrong thing year in year out? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t and when it doesn’t, the disappointment is real. Experience means knowledge and expertise. It doesn’t necessarily mean years on the job.

And what about fees for professional services? A patient once told me that his father said “whatever the professional asks for, just pay!”

How’s that for an undertaking? But there was a proviso. You have the right to choose the professional and once that choice has been made, relax with confidence.

So How Do You Go About Choosing A Good Dentist in Sandton?

Is it based on the appearance of the office?

The friendliness of the staff?

The way the telephone was answered?

The modernity of the equipment?

Whether an x-ray apron is used?

The location and adequate parking?

Good sterilisation of instruments?

The lightness of touch?

A painless injection?

Effective anaesthesia?

Good people skills?

All these are things that one can feel and see but dentistry is different. You cannot see what the dentist is doing. It is totally blind!

And So The Question Remains, How Do You Choose A Good Dentist Sandton?

Let me tell you another story which I’m sure you will enjoy but will give you insight about choosing a good dentist Sandton.

The owl and the peacock were having an argument as to who was the most beautiful bird in the world. The owl said, “I am” and the peacock said, “I am “. They agreed to resolve the argument by consulting the first animal that they met in the forest and whoever won would bite off the other bird’s tail. Off they went and came upon the wild boar. They asked him to judge the case and eagerly awaited his opinion.

“In my opinion,” said the pig, having thought for a while, “It is the owl”. The owl rightfully bit off the peacock’s tail and the peacock ran out of the forest crying bitterly and uncontrollably.

The peacock then came across the wise old fox and she told him the story. Said the fox sagely and compassionately, “Look whose opinion you asked. On what basis is word-of-mouth established?”

I asked a periodontist colleague his valued opinion in choosing a good dentist Sandton and this is what his patients have told him: –

From the perspective of a layperson I think the primary motivation to select a good dentist Sandton is the testimonials from other patients of the dentist. Another factor patients look at is the qualifications of the dentist and the institutions from which they were obtained. Affiliations to groups or bodies are also looked at. Patients also look at number of years in practice. If one has a website, patients like to look at photos of work done by the dentist for them to choose a good dentist Sandton.

Word-of-Mouth Is Very Powerful When Choosing A Good Dentist Sandton, But Consider This…

In the South African Dental Journal March 2016,Vol71 Dr S Naidoo, senior professor and principal specialist, faculty of dentistry, University of Western Cape writes the following:-

The profession of dentistry has both benevolent and protective aspects with regards to duty of care to patients, to always try to do the best for patients and shall for the principles of non-maleficent’s – to do no harm. This principle expresses the concept that professionals have a duty to protect the patient from no harm.

General dentists are usually the first professional patients visit, seeking an evaluation of the oral and dental needs. The general dentist may then treat the patient or may refer the patient for speciality care depending on the conditions which have been assessed and diagnosed. This is because amongst general dentist there are differing levels of expertise, exposure to postgraduate training, and confidence in undertaking treatment of more advanced dental conditions. Whenever necessary, timely and appropriate referral is an ethical imperative which fulfils a professional duty to a patient.

A good dentist in Sandton is expected to recognise when specialist care is more appropriate to the patient’s needs and completion of the treatment plan and should then refer appropriately.

Interestingly, general dental practitioners are entitled to carry out all dental procedures including those falling within the scope of specialists (provided they have the training).

Now, having chosen a good dentist Sandton by whatever criteria, are you satisfied that time has been spent on listening carefully to your past dental history? Has the initial consultation included gathering of all the diagnostic records needed to formulate a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan?

Has a subsequent planning appointment taken place to empower you as the patient to make an informed decision and evaluate the possible treatment options?

The choice is yours… Choose wisely.

Did you know that some dentists in Norwood perform cosmetic or re-constructive dental work after just a weekend course of that certain procedure?

That may be okay for you, but you should know prosthodontists receive an extra 3-5 years of intense, formal training beyond the regular dental school. If you are seeking cosmetic or re constructive dental work, you should do research before making a decision in order to ensure proper care. 

According to the MEDAGES DATABASE, there are less than 100 prosthodontists in the South Africa, compared to 4000 general dentists, all with additional specialized training.

However, when this research was done only 61 prosthodontists were found all over South Africa.

So what does a Prosthodontist do?

As South African Dental Association (SADA) recognized specialists, prosthodontists are qualified to offer care in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, such as:

When do you need General Dentists In Norwood

This dentist diagnoses, treats, and manages your overall oral health needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.

.Home care instruction

·Mouthguard

·Nutrition counselling

·Root canal therapy
