The procedure was surprising easy, more comfortable than having the teeth removed. The finished implants and crowns look and feel like my own teeth only better!”

Dr Moore's FAQs

Dentistry can be a confusing field for anyone new to it, and with so much information out there, it can be difficult to put worries to rest. Below are some frequently asked questions answered simply and clearly to ease any concerns you may have.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are simply artificial roots to support artificial teeth. They are titanium screws to which a crown or dentures can be fixed, resulting in a great fitting replacement which looks natural and offers great functionality.

Why would I need dental implants?

You need a dental implant if you’ve lost a tooth and would like to have it replaced.

Are dental implants painful?

Like most dental procedures, an implant is placed under the influence of a local anaesthetic, a chemical agent that numbs you and keeps the treatment painless.

How much would a dental implant cost?

The cost can vary because of the complexity of the cases or the number of teeth being replaced, but in the UK a single implant will normally cost around the £2,500 mark.

How often are implants successful?

Implants have been conducted for years and have, due to massive improvements in technology, achieved a success rate of about 98%.

What do I do if my implants fail?

Although the incidence of an implant failing are extremely rare, it can happen. If it does, go to the dentist who originally installed the implant for its repair. More often than not an implant comes with a guarantee so chances are you won’t have to pay to have it fixed.

Why should I get an implant?

A dental implant has many benefits, the most significant of which is the fact that it gives your teeth the most natural looking replacements possible. Not only do they look natural, but they give you the most natural feel when you smile and chew, giving you more confidence.

Would I have to get another implant in the future?

Properly cared for and regularly assessed by a dentist, your implant should last you for the rest of your life, meaning that unless you lose another tooth, you shouldn’t need another implant in the future.

Does the NHS pay for dental implants?

Unfortunately the NHS does not cover the cost of cosmetic procedures.

How long does it take to recover from an implant procedure?

Depending on the complexity of the procedure, your dentist will advise you as to when you are fully recovered and can get back to work and life in general. Typically you can get back to normal the day after receiving an implant, but this can vary.
