A Bad Haircut
Have you ever had a bad haircut? I have.
Bad haircuts are usually the result of three influencers; impulsiveness, price and miscommunication.
Impulsiveness. Have you ever woken up one morning and knew that you absolutely needed to get "something done” with your hair? Your regular hairstylist isn’t available so you call around until you find one that is. You rush over to the salon, get a hair cut and the results are not exactly successful!
Price. Have you ever been walking through a mall and seen a salon advertising, “Haircuts $14.99”? And you think to yourself, “That’s a great price!” So, you pop in, get a haircut and end up crying yourself to sleep that night.
Miscommunication. Have you ever shown your hair stylist a picture of your favourite celebrity hair cut with disappointing results? You expected to look like Meg Ryan, but ended up resembling Harry Potter from Harry and the Deathly Hallows.
Now the good news is that hair grows, so in a few weeks, your bad hair cut will only be a bad memory.
Sometimes people can have “bad dental implants”. Bad dental implants are usually the result of three influencers; impulsiveness, price and miscommunication.
Impulsiveness. I have a friend, a young man, who had two front teeth knocked out playing hockey. His regular dentist didn’t do implants so he needed to find someone who would. Being a young man, he wanted to get his teeth fixed ASAP! He was at the mall and saw a dentist advertising “New Patients Welcome” so he walked in, got an appointment that afternoon and got an implant. The results were not exactly successful. His new tooth is significantly longer than his other teeth, clicks when he chews and hurts when he eats!
Price. I have another friend who loves her dentist. He gave her “a deal” when she got an implant. And he doesn’t charge her when it needs to be fixed. I don’t have the heart to tell her that if she’s had two repairs in five years; she didn’t really get a good deal. There are several different types of implants on the market, some of the products are significantly cheaper, but we consider them to be inferior without the credibility or longevity of the best products available.
Miscommunication. Dental implants are considerably more complicated than a hair cut. There are a variety of implant solutions and a variety of factors that impact the long-term positive impact of a dental implant.
At Dentistry at Vitality Health, we have designed and offer the Compleo Implant Treatment Program. The Compleo Implant Treatment Plan does everything to ensure that every dental implant we place is a success. In fact, our long-term success rate is 99.9%.
We address the issues of impulsiveness, price and communication. Two of the implant solutions we offer are Immediate Dental Implants or “Teeth-in-an-Hour”, but don’t confuse these titles with impulsiveness. No, not at all! We’re able to offer these solutions because of the detailed planning and screening prior to the day of surgery. Our screening process includes a thorough clinical examination, 3-D Imaging of your jaws and teeth, an assessment of your results (bone density, teeth integrity and overall oral health), often a computer-guided plan, and a tooth (or teeth) specifically designed for you and manufactured in our own location. Cosmetic, functional and structural aspects are all considered when designing the optimal plan. We are able to do it quickly because all scans, design and manufacture is done in our facility.
We emphasize value; not price. If a cheap haircut can reduce you to tears; how would you feel about a cheap implant? We offer quality implants that last and, with proper care, it might be the last time that you have to worry about it!
We value communication. We educate our patients all of the options available to them. We answer their questions and recommend a treatment plan that best suits their needs. We even help our patients visualize what their new teeth will look like, through advanced imaging techniques!
We can’t promise that you’ll never have another bad haircut in your lifetime; but, we can promise that you won’t have a bad dental implant experience.
