FAQ’s Dental Implants

Can anybody have implants?

Anyone who is over 18 and is in reasonably good health can have implants. An individual assessment is necessary to decide whether dental implants are a viable solution for you.

Will dental implants work for me?

Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to decay or injury may be a candidate for dental implants. The main limitation is the amount of bone available. We can evaluate whether dental implants are a viable solution for you.

What does it cost?

Your desire to possess beautiful, fully-functioning teeth is an investment that will pay dividends in terms of your confidence and your capacity to chew and eat with ease. Our approach is to undertake a comprehensive consultation that provides you with a range of treatment and cost options allowing you to make an informed decision. Call us to find out more about the initial consultation.

Do they last forever?

Dental implants have been in use since the 1960s. They are the most effective and longest lasting solution available.

Will it hurt?

Implants must be placed very gently so soreness afterwards is very slight. People are often surprised how little discomfort there is but sedation is available for those who prefer.

Does it take long?

It will take appointments spread over several months to restore your smile with dental implants. We can hide gaps with temporary dentures or bridges while the treatment is in progress.
