You might have seen the large newspaper advertisements last weekend that claimed you could have your teeth fixed in an Eastern European country and save £1000s!
It immediately reminded us of two well known sayings: One is “If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.” The other is: “You get what you pay for.”
At Carisbrook Dental we are acknowledged as the Dental Implants Manchester specialists and as such we have come across this claim many times over recent years and although you’d naturally expect us to say this … please don’t take these claims at their face value.
Let us give you just one example.
Mrs S traveled to Warsaw for dental treatments where she had five upper implants and an implant bridge fitted. The fee quoted was about two thirds of that what we at Carisbrook would charge. The experience, however, didn’t quite work out as well or as cheaply as Mrs S originally expected, because by the end of the treatment she had made and paid for four return flights, four lots of hotel expenses and after all that she was still not happy with the result.
Mrs S actually came to us and told us about her experience. Because, unlike with our close-to-home treatment programme, there was no interim fitting to appraise the bite, smile or colouring, the bridge fitted was not quite right. On inspection we also noticed the first tell-tale signs of a crack appearing, meaning a replacement will be required sooner rather than later.
For comparison – and you can check this out on our Dental Implants page – our programme would have started with initial discussions about the treatment plan and agreement on final costs. We would then commence the treatment by preparing and fitting the implants before firstly having an examination followed by further fortnightly reviews for the bridge. The next stage would be to create the mould; try fit the bridge to confirm fit, bite, phonetics, smile line, colour and general appearance before finally … committing to the final fit.
Yes we agree that our cost initially appears to be higher than that originally quoted in Warsaw. But remember this … our highly qualified dental team are always right there on your doorstep to ensure that everything is right at every stage. What’s more they are always available without the need for you to pay for expensive flights and hotel accommodation.
With Carisbrook Dental, the dental implants Manchester specialists, you are assured of total peace of mind.
And that is priceless!
