White smiles and straight teeth have been the profit centers of most of today’s dental offices. With the high profit margins, dentists are clamoring to offer “improved smile” services.
But what about those smiles that are harder to help?
Dentures can be a cost effective solution to providing a realistic-looking set of teeth but have drawbacks. Many problems with dentures often revolve around their temporary nature. They are meant to come on and off leading to inappropriate moments when loosening might accidentally happen. Additionally, there is no preservation of the jaw bone and they can even cause the gums to ulcerate.
Dental implants, on the other hand, are a more costly solution but provide a longer lasting, more natural option to dentures.
Implants have a high success rate, but they require minor surgery and as many as ten implants into the jawbone for one set of dentures or bridgework. They are fixed in place and offer a more permanent solution for the long term, but the surgery and the time required to integrate the metal implants with the bone can dissuade many patients from going through with the procedure.
Now there is a revolutionary solution that combines the best of both worlds. The Smile Cliniq “teeth in a day” guide explains how easy it can be to restore a smile with only one procedure.
The “All-in-4” procedure used by Smile Cliniq only uses four implants to secure the new teeth in place and the function and cleaning of the all-in-4 teeth are just like normal teeth. The minor surgical procedure is accomplished in one day and they still have a high success rate to accompany this convenience.
This pain-free procedure combines the permanence of typical implants with the convenience ease of dentures. The beauty for consumers is that the cost is less than with traditional implants and the success rate is still around 95% or better.
The advantage for the clinic is that the profit margin is high due to the one-visit concept for a result that would normally take several visits. The London based Smile Cliniq offers this solution to any patient once an assessment is made to ensure the suitability of the treatment.
U.S. dentists are starting to take a look at the “All-in-4” procedure – as it is highly capable of carving its own niche in the smile business. Not only will patients have another choice between dentures and typical implants, but this option will also motivate people to have the procedure done in the first place, thus creating more business and profit.
