If you are considering dental implants, the first thing to consider is a second opinion. Your dentist may well have recommended you to a dental implant specialist. Still, the fact is that dental implants are not cheap, and everyone is different, so a dental implant second opinion is critical if you want to be certain that you made the right choice. You need a specialist with several years of practical experience in all types of dental implant systems.
Dental implant surgery is not a cheap procedure, so you need to ensure that you are in the hands of someone with the knowledge and the skills to get it right the first time. It is always best to get a second opinion from a dentist specializing in all the necessary associated procedures.
Consider the Materials used in Dental Implants.
There are many things about dental implants of which the average person is simply unaware. For instance, did you know that dental implants can be made of various materials of differing quality? There are plenty of cheap imports on the market, and while it may be tempting to go for these because they are more affordable, you want to be certain that your dental implants will last for life. You don’t want to start getting problems a few months later because your implants were made of inferior materials.
We only ever use one specific brand here: the dental implants made by Nobel Biocare in the United States. If you rush off and use the first oral surgeon because his rates are lower, it may be because that surgeon is using imported dental implants.
Another Consideration Is The Equipment
Another consideration is the equipment that the dental implant surgeon uses. Many implant surgeons still rely on X-rays to provide the information they need about your jaw. Unfortunately, X-rays do not give – and never have given – the whole picture. Yes, they were the best thing available then, but today we have the evolution of the 3D CAT scanner. This provides the surgeon with much more information, such as the quality and density of the jawbone, the best place to position the implant, and the best type of implant to use, and ensures he can avoid any nerves or sinuses. You can’t get all that from an X-ray.
Experienced Oral Surgeon for Dental Implants
Then there is the experience of the oral surgeon who will operate – and it is an operation. Many dentists and oral surgeons carry out a few dental implant surgeries a month. Here at San Francisco Dental Implant Center, we do them every day. Our doctor, Dr. Alex Rabinovich, has done thousands of dental implant surgeries.

Get A Second Opinion for Your Dental Implants
