Implants can be used for replacing either a single missing tooth or they can be used to
replace a number of missing teeth.
How long do these procedures take?
The current systems in use allow dentists to replace teeth to match the natural teeth very closely.
The procedure involves two stages:
- The surgical placement of the implant in the jaw – This is carried out
with local anaesthetic and can also be done under sedation depending on patient requirements and
the type of case. Some 3-4 months after the placement of the implants the new teeth can be made.
- In certain situations teeth can be replaced immediately with dental implants. The initial consultation
for dental implants will involve taking x-rays to evaluate bone suitability. The dentist will be able
to discuss other factors involved and determine the patient’s suitability.
For more information regarding the dental implant procedure, check out this dental clinic to see how the implant process works.
How much do dental implants cost?
The costs for the treatment are discussed and all aspects are confirmed and approved by the patient prior to commencing treatment.
Implant costs can be determined by the location of the practice, the skill, and expertise of the dentist, and the type of procedure you require.
The much-publicised “new one-hour implants” have a place to play in the wide range of implant
options that are now available – and this along with all other treatments are routinely discussed
with all patients needing dental implants.
