Now you can have a tooth replaced with something that feels almost like a tooth and chews just like a tooth!
Implants can be placed where teeth have been lost without requiring the adjacent teeth to be shaved down as is often the case with bridges. They are also much more comfortable than dentures and there is nothing to take in and out or move about your mouth.
Of course you need to make sure it is right for you. We need to make sure there is enough bone present and that gum disease will not cause your implant to come loose.
Many people are put off believing the procedure to be very painful but I would recommend speaking to a few people who have had implants and I think you will be reassured. If you need us to put you in touch with some people please get in touch.
Saul Pineiro is our Implant Dentist, he will advise and guide you through your treatment. If you want more information, or wish to book a FREE initial consultation please contact us.
Implants cost £1990 per tooth.
This includes the crown and all associated appointments.
Additional costs that you may incur could include;
A full jaw x-ray (often called an OPT). This is usually done at Scarborough hospital and they charge £123.
Saul often recommends a CT scan to ensure the nerves and sinuses are not going to be damaged. We will arrange for a mobile scanner to visit the practice.This costs £200.
Bone grafting is sometimes required if there is not quite enough bone or it is not at the level that is ideal. This costs £300 if required.
