Knowledge is power. When someone understands the “what” and “why” of their health, they’re more empowered to take ownership of it.
The same goes for dental implants.
Sure, most people know that implants are a long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. But they might not truly understand the significant health advantages of choosing implants over something like a fixed bridge or partial. The more they do, the easier it is to independently conclude that implant therapy is in their best interest.
Positive Reinforcement with Open Communication
The better educated your patients are, the more ownership they’ll take of their oral health and rejuvenation process. Dental implant therapy demands a dedicated home hygiene plan and healthy oral cavity prior to treatment, so you know as good as anyone how crucial it is to hand-select the ideal candidate for treatment.
By drawing prospective clients to your website and providing them with easy-to-read, educational information that they can’t find elsewhere, you’ll create a connection that other implant providers don’t.
Focus on the Benefits
Implants are better… but why? When your patients understand the numerous advantages that implants have over conventional therapies, the thought process comes naturally. How are implants less invasive than bridges? How do implants reinforce your facial profile? What is it that makes implants so successful and predictable? How much money can you save over time with implants compared to ongoing maintenance of other popular solutions?
It’s possible to optimize this information without truly revealing the specifics of time, costs, and implant designs. But when you educate your patient about the individualized pricing based on their unique oral anatomy and smile needs, they’ll come to you already knowing that fees are fluid.
