It’s a strange old world sometimes. Nobody would dream of going out to buy a new car without going around several dealers in order to get the best offer.

Getting a second opinion for dental implants.

The same thing applies to having your home rewired by an electrician, booking a hotel room, looking to buy a new home, having your yard completely remodeled, installing a pool, or any other major expense. It simply makes sense to look around and get the best deal.

Yet when it comes to things like a second opinion on dental implants many people seem to be blinded by the advertising of the big chains such as Clear Choice Dental Implants, without even bothering to get a second opinion. By no means are we saying that they don’t offer a good service or that they may not offer a better price than we do – although having said that we believe that we are as competitive as can be because we don’t have the big overheads that they do and we don’t do lots of advertising.

No Need For Lots Of Advertising

In fact, we don’t need to do lots of advertising because an awful lot of our San Francisco Bay Area business comes by way of recommendation from our community of very happy existing patients who are only too pleased to tell their family and friends about the service we provide. Obviously, this helps to keep down our overheads, which is why we can compete very well on price.

The real mystery is why more people don’t seek a second opinion on dental implants, because one surgeon may take a very different view from another. For instance, one may say that you need a bone graft to strengthen your jawbone for an implant, where another may consider that your jawbone is perfectly strong and healthy. This may depend on the equipment that they use.

At SF Dental Implant Center we use only the very latest NewTom CAT scanner to check your jawbone which produces far more comprehensive results than a traditional x-ray – and it does it in 20 seconds or less. This could provide us with a very different picture from that which another surgeon might get if he is not using the latest equipment.

Vital To Get A Second Opinion

When you are talking about your oral health, which is what is under consideration here, many people would consider that it is vital to get a second opinion on dental implants, which is what we offer.

Our San Francisco oral surgeon, Dr Alex Rabinovich, offers all patients an initial consult when he will give a second opinion without any obligation. It costs nothing but an hour or so of your time, and you might be very pleased with the result.
