What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts placed into the bone to replace the roots of teeth. These then have a crown placed on top to simulate a tooth.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Tooth implants can look and feel just like your normal teeth. They also don’t need to put any extra load or rest on adjacent teeth. Current literature shows a 15-20 year life expectancy as long as you take care of them.
What are the downsides?
It is a surgical procedure that requires a period of healing. This can require several visits and more maintenance in terms of cleaning at home and with the hygienist.
It can be more expensive than other options initially.
What is the average cost for dental implants?
The average cost to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant is £2200-£2500. The treatment is usually split over a number of months and payment is usually staged. At Beverly dental, Raynes Park we also offer interest free finance over 10 months and interest bearing finance options over 12-36 months.
Who places the dental implants at Beverley Dental?
We are lucky to have Jonathan Avanessian placing dental affordable implants at Beverley Dental. He works in the Royal Surgery Hospital as Speciality Doctor and his dentistry is limited to implant placement, extraction of teeth and dealing with head and neck cancer and trauma.
How long do implants last?
They have a great success rate over 20 years with some studies giving them a 95% success rate. The Oral Health Foundation also has some answers to other questions on their website.
Hopefully this helps explain what a dental implant is and how we at Beverley Dental, Raynes Park, SW20 can help.
