There is no doubt that medicine is a very profitable business. This is also true of dentistry and especially the dental implant replacement industry.
As soon as something shows profit, more similar businesses develop, some of which focus more on money than providing medical services for the good of the patient. In recent years, there was a lot of so-called “implant super centres” in big cities, proclaiming that they are the best places to have a dental implant replacement surgery. Some of those centres are very professional and have highly experienced doctors and surgeons. However, we shouldn’t entrust our teeth to a certain clinic merely because it is a huge dental care practice.
A large number of dental experts, recognized in the dentistry field, frequently publish scientific articles and give lectures on their work at their own private practices.
When choosing a clinic, we should look at the experience, not on how well marketed the place is, or how big and impressive its size. Going to a super centre will not automatically mean you will get the best quality of treatment. The quality, expertise, standards and professionalism are assured by the experience and training of the dental expert. The best way to find a good surgical dentist specialist is to have him recommended by your general dentist.
It is hard to find out about the experience of the doctors working in a super centre. Very often the name super centre is used only as a marketing device. It is important to remember that although some of those centres indeed have great and experienced dentists in their ranks and they can advertise themselves as the most experienced private practice, but may have doctors with less experience.
Very often we are lured to such centres because we can get everything done in one place and there is no need to go from place to place to do an additional procedure. However, you need to ask yourself if convenience is more important than professionalism and experience? Will you expose your teeth to lower quality treatment?
Before you choose to go to such a super centre for dental implant replacement, consult with your dentist and find out what sort of experience their staff has.
