Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Bromley

Single teeth or sets of teeth can be permanently replaced. Similarly, dentures can be ‘fixed’ by implant treatment, making them look much more real, feel natural and work far more effectively.

How long does the treatment take from start to finish?

From first assessment, the treatment may take as little as two months and involve 4 to 12 visits. Once your mount has been assessed, you will be given a more accurate timetable.

Can implants replace any tooth?

Implants can be used for almost any situation where you have lost or are about to lose one tooth or more, depending on the quality and condition of the your gums and bone in your jaw. This will be assessed at your first visit.

What if all my teeth have been lost?

Up to eight implants in each jaw will allow the dentist to permanently attach a number of bridges and crowns and replace all teeth. If it is not possible for sufficient implants to be placed, a bar retained denture or removable bridge may be suggested.

How much will implants cost?

In the short term, implant treatments may appear to cost more but cannot be compared with alternative treatment options. Implant treatment varies in cost depending on the number of implants you require. Our dentist will carry out a full Consultation, where you will be able to discuss your aims and the results you have in mind, enabling the dentist to ass your expectations and create a treatment plan specifically tailored to your individual needs.
