Preparing yourself is important. It is critical that you account for the likely need for future treatment of some kind, and you understand the potential ongoing costs before making the decision to go ahead with your initial procedure.
Often the fees and costs associated with a revision procedure can be more than the initial surgery. All too often patients undergo an initial surgery not considering the fact that they will, at some point, need another procedure for many reasons. They have a mindset that they will sort it out “IF” it happens.
Whether it is with your initial surgeon or another if you are not prepared to accept the costs of revision surgery you are not a suitable candidate for initial surgery.
Expecting total and constant perfection from implants is unrealistic.
