What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are used to replace gaps due to missing teeth. They are made of two components; a natural looking tooth (made of porcelain) fills the gap which is attached to the jawbone via a titanium fixing (which you cannot see).
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental implants are preferable long term alternatives to unsightly and unnatural dentures. When the cost of the treatment is divided up over the life of the implant (lifelong), its easy to see why this has become the most popular option for replacing lost teeth.
As everyone has differing situations it is difficult to give an exact answer without an assessment. However, as a guide price implants start from £1250.
Why should you not ignore missing teeth?
Gaps resulting from lost teeth (due to accidents or decay) affect our ability to chew and enjoy or food properly which can lead to digestion problems and other teeth to start moving. Over time the jaw bone starts to shrink and this leads to an unpleasant sunken appearance of the face.
Who can have a dental implant?
Dental implants are an option for anyone with missing teeth regardless of the cause . As long as you have enough jawbone and healthy gums, which our dentist can assess, this should be an option that shouldn’t be dismissed.
