What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is essentially a screw which is very carefully inserted into a patient's jaw to allow connection to an artificial tooth/denture. The vast majority of dental implants are metal (titanium) which is a similar technology to artificial hips and knees. To find out more, visit our Patient's Guide to dental implants.
Are dental implants for everyone?
Although dental implants can be a fantastic method for replacing missing teeth, they are not necessarily for everyone. There are many options for replacing missing teeth for individual patients. These are generally bespoke (specifically to the individual) which is why it is so important to be assessed by a well-trained and experienced clinician.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
If suitable for dental implant treatment the benefits can be huge. The ability to have a replacement of an individual tooth without wearing a denture can be massive for patients. The longevity of implants, if provided properly and looked after properly, is generally likely to outweigh the longevity of any type of dental restoration.
How much do dental implants cost?
Costs vary according to the exact treatment you receive and each individual dental implant case for a patient is bespoke with no two cases ever the same. It is for this reason that it is very difficult to place an exact cost on an implant treatment before a patient is assessed. This is similar to asking "how much would it cost for an extension on my house?". You can find out more here.
