is there any overheard with try/except statements?

One of the things I learned with C# is that it's always better to handle
any errors that might occur within the codes itself (i.e. using if
statements, etc. to catch potential out of range indexing) rather than
use too many try/catch statements, because there is some overhead every
time the program encounters the try.
Is this the case at all with Python, in terms of extra work or slower
speed? Or is try/except implemented differently in Python than it is in
other languages, so that it runs just like any other code?
