The cost vs. the price of your treatment
If you have been longingly searching for price comparisons of a dental treatment that you need, you may have noticed that many dentists choose not to publish pricing information on the website. If they do, the information is usually pretty vague.
This is because there are many factors that influence how much your dental treatment will cost and most dentists will not give you an estimate on your treatment cost without first meeting you in person and evaluating your oral health.
So, how do you make a decision on what dentist is best for you?
At Extreme Dentistry, we believe in being up front with our patients. This is why we are telling you now that dental work can be expensive, especially if it is not covered by your insurance policy.
Despite this, it may also be one of the best investments you can make for not just your oral health, but your overall health.
Aspects that make up the cost of your treatment
The overall cost of your dental treatment can be influenced by several factors including the:
- Skill of the dentist
- Type of procedure
- Whether it is covered by insurance
- Materials used
- Technology required
- Type of sedation (if required)
Because there are so many variables, it is hard to estimate how much your treatment will cost before our dentist Dr Anand can meet you and discuss your treatment plan.
What is a treatment plan?
A treatment plan outlines the dental services that Dr Anand recommends to restore your smile. This will include the price and timeline of the treatment. No two treatment plans are exactly alike, and your treatment plan is developed specifically for you based on your health needs.
Overall, this plan acts as a big picture approach to your oral care and is designed to prevent small issues from getting bigger and ultimately, more expensive.
Is it worth seeing a quality dentist?
Without a doubt – YES!
At Extreme Dentistry, we always adhere to the highest of dental standards to make sure our patients receive the best possible treatment and care that we can offer. At the end of the day, the most important part of our job is to ensure your comfort and safety and to make sure that you receive the best treatment possible. To book your consultation, click here.
Although you may think you are receiving a good price going to a cheaper dentist, in the long run this can end up costing you more than what you initially hoped to pay for it. The last thing you want is to have to pay a skilled dentist to revise the initial work you received.
It will end up being far more cost-effective to entrust your teeth (and gums) to a professional who keeps their skills and technology updated to ensure that the job is done right the first time.
