Dental implants FAQs

I am worried dental implants will hurt

Make sure you go for trust and experience. An experienced oral surgeon will provide good local anesthesia. The majority of patients say the treatment is relatively painless.

How much do dental implants cost?

The costs vary considerably. Most dental surgeons will allow you to pay monthly to reduce the initial costs significantly. The price depends on complexity, cosmetic demands and many other factors. To get an implant price from a telephone discussion is not always accurate, so request a free consultation.

Is it expensive?

It is the more expensive aspect of dental treatment. We are replacing all your teeth in the jaw. But if you look after them – you will get many many years of trouble free, natural beautiful teeth.

Am I too old for dental implants?

No. It is very rare to be too old.

I am worried they will fail, is there dental implants insurance?

There is insurance. Many patients contact their insurance broker to discuss options. They are more qualified to give you this advice.

What happens if they fail?

Then can fail but we are so confident we offer a warranty. 5 years. After 5 years you can take out your own insurance.

Will I get screwed in teeth day 1?

Will I need to take time off work after I have had a permanent tooth implant?

It is rare to have to take time off. As well as this, we can make sure you are not left with a gap during the healing phase.

I have been told I don’t have enough bone. Does that mean I can’t have screw in teeth?

This usually means the All On 4 is suitable for you. The implants and procedure is designed for patients with advanced bone loss.

Will I get food stuck under the bridge?

Like your normal teeth, the bridges need cleaning regularly.

“One of the best dentists I have ever been to. From check-in the reception staff were super friendly and knowledgable. Then the dentist was amazing – he explained everything and did lots to make sure I felt comfortable. He even took photos and showed where and why I might require treatment. I had fillings put in and it was a good experience. Will be visiting here again next time I need any dental work”

“..Sophie is a lovely, gentle, professional and talented lady, and I am so incredibly pleased with the small (yet amazing) change she’s made to my smile! I keep smiling at myself in the mirror!! 🤣 I feel like I want to return because it was a lovely experience, but I have nothing to return for. You can even watch TV whilst having treatment, there is a TV on the ceiling! I feel this would help to relax nervous patients. I will be referring anyone I know to Sophie, because I’d know that they are in safe hands..”
