Should I get a second opinion on Dental implant surgery?


A dental implant is a surgical procedure and is therefore invasive to your body.

That being said the likelihood of complications following dental implant surgery by a competent dental implant surgeon are low.

A good dental implant surgeon will explain those risks at your initial consultation.

It is also true that, while dental implant surgery offers good value for the financial investment relative to other less permanent options, the cost of a dental implant procedure is a consideration that always must be taken.

Now to answer the question posed.

“Should I get a second opinion on Dental implant surgery?”

If you
  1. Have any doubts about the procedure,
  2. Are unsure if it is right for you,
  3. Are unclear about any aspect of what is proposed,
  4. Are not fully aware of all the options,
  5. Feel you are being rushed or pushed,
  6. Are not fully comfortable with the implant surgeon you have consulted,
  7. Feel like your questions are not being answered,
  8. Simply want confirmation of the proposed dental implant procedure,
  9. Or for that matter for any reason whatsoever.
The answer is an emphatic yes.

This is a relationship between surgeon and patient which is founded on and grows on trust.

If a dental implant surgeon, or anyone at the practice attempts to rush you or talk you out of getting a second opinion that should act as a warning light – why don’t they want me to talk to someone else?

At Southside Dental Implant Centre we do many second opinions and in the vast majority of cases our opinion confirms the initial diagnosis and treatment recommendations.  We are happy that we can assist the patient and that they can undergo, with the original surgeon, a successful implant procedure.

Second opinions are all about ensuring that the best possible result is achieved for the patient.

If you are considering surgical dental implants a dental implant surgeon will be able to guide you on the right dental implant for your needs.  You will be advised dental implant options and the right dental implant device for your needs.
