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.

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.

Like your normal teeth, the bridges need cleaning regularly.

“My local Dentist recommended I consult Richard and the Team at Hale Dental & Implant Clinic regarding issues I was having with an old implant. Despite being officially closed over the Christmas / New Year period, Richard reviewed X-rays and photos of my teeth and arranged to see me at the earliest opportunity. I subsequently received treatment that was simply first class in all aspects and have no hesitation is recommending to others.”
