Am I suitable for dental implants?
If you are in good health and want to replace your missing teeth you are likely to be suitable. Bone is required to provide the anchorage for the implants. Some people are missing all of their teeth and most of those are excellent candidates for dental implants, but today, we also use implants to replace removable dentures, missing single or multiple teeth.
How much is an implant?
Completed dental implant (Implant, abutment and crown) £1495.00. Other items can sometimes be required. We offer a free consultation in order to provide detailed costings for each patient.
How long will the treatment take?
On average there are 3 to 4 visits. The time span for a typical treatment plan is around 4 months. More complex cases can take longer.
What happens if my implant fails?
We will remove the implant, wait for a few weeks for the socket to repair and then place another implant, sometimes with a slightly larger width implant. In the majority of cases this works perfectly. Implant failure rates are generally between 1-1.5% and certainly not common place.
Will I have gaps in my teeth whilst waiting for the implant crowns?
In most situations, patients leave the practice wearing temporary teeth the day the implants are placed. Every patient and procedure is evaluated separately and there might occasionally be a recommendation that a patient go without temporary teeth for a short time.
What is the success rate of dental implants?
This depends very much on where in the mouth the implants are placed, and the loading they experience under function. The success rate at 7oaks Clinic is 98%.
Can dentists refer 7oaks for dental implants for their patients?
