4 Important Patient Questions
1. Will It Hurt, And How Long Is The Recovery Period? No, the treatment is carried out using a local anaesthetic and the procedures are carried out gently. After treatment pain relief will be given so that you will experience minimal post- operative pain.
All of our implant dentists are highly trained and work using established surgical and restorative protocols. Whilst occasionally a dental implant may not bond to bone following placement, this is rare and can be easily rectified. Individual patients’ recover at differing rates, but following most implant surgeries recovery is around two days. Larger grafting procedures may take about one weeks’ recovery.
2. How Long Do Implants Last? Research shows that 95 percent of implants on average have lasted 13 years or more. Implants today are made of newer materials and designed to fit better, so the jawbone heals faster via their titanium-based bio compatibility. With consistent, effective maintenance and good dental hygiene, your dental implants should last almost as long as your natural teeth.
3. How much do implants cost? Our team only carry out dental implant treatments and our centre is specifically designed for the treatments we provide. Our implant surgeons place large numbers of dental implants and are very skilled at this particular speciality. This enables us to increase the numbers of implants we place. Our aim is to provide dental implants in an affordable way so more people can benefit from this advanced option.
