If you’re considering dental implants, you’ll probably have a whole host of questions to ask: How much do dental implants cost? How are dental implants done? Will I need a full set of dental implants? How long do dental implants last? That’s understandable and we can help you with all of those questions. First, let me tell you a bit about our expert clinician. Vinit is a Specialist in Prosthodontics (speciality of restoring and replacing missing teeth) and has extensive experience in utilising dental implants to help with replacing your missing teeth. He is also active members of the International Team of Implantology, which is a long-standing organisation specifically involved with research and development in Implant Dentistry. In addition, he is involved in the postgraduate education and training of dentists in Oxford and at the University College London, Eastman Dental Institute in London. There are many different types of dental implants, but at One The Gallery, we exclusively use the Straumann implant system, as it is the most researched and studied implant system currently available, and has been involved in implant dentistry since the early 1980s. We believe that they provide the best dental implants. Together with specialised dental laboratories, we are extremely confident that we are using some of the most advanced materials and dental technology available to help restore your smile and function. Before any treatment is planned, Vinit will undertake a thorough clinical and radiological assessment of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order to make sure that this is the best treatment option to help restore your smile and function. You will be provided with a comprehensive written report that will highlight the treatment options available to you. Vinit has undertaken significant postgraduate and advanced training in all aspects of implant dentistry. Whether you require a single tooth, or multiple teeth to be replaced, you can rest assured that our team is experienced enough to take care of you throughout the dental implants procedure. Many of our patients are keen to ask ‘what are dental implants?’ And ‘how do dental implants work?’ In short, dental implants consist of a titanium screw and an abutment on to which the crowns/bridges are attached:
Dental Implant – the titanium screw that anchors into the bone – and mimics the root of a tooth.
Abutment – the connection between the dental implant and the tooth/teeth.
Once integrated within the bone, the implant is used to support single or multiple crowns and bridges, or dentures onto the abutment. These are customised to your aesthetic and functional needs, just like crowns and bridges on teeth would be.
The titanium dental implants look and feel natural, restoring the strength and function of a natural tooth, but they will also preserve the health of your neighbouring teeth and your underlying bone structure. As they are anchored in the jaw, just like teeth, there is no artificial plastic on the roof of the mouth and the need for adhesives and denture creams is eliminated. More importantly, the use of dental implants does not impact healthy adjacent teeth.
Often our patients ask ‘are dental implants safe?’ And ‘do dental implants hurt?’ The truth is, dental implants are one of the most remarkable advances in dentistry in recent years and have become the treatment of choice for people missing one, a few, or all of their teeth. Dental implants were initially developed to help patients with no teeth to stabilise and support full dentures. However, through material science and technology, dental implants are now one of the most predictable treatments available to replace both single and multiple missing teeth. Whatever the reason for tooth loss, and for those with failing teeth or severe periodontal disease, dental implants can help in restoring your smile and function. Dental implants also offer a strong, permanent alternative to some of the common difficulties associated with traditional dentures.

Managing Complications with Dental Implants
It’s understandable that one of the first questions our patients ask is ‘how much are dental implants?’ The truth is that problems with dental implants can occur with cheap dental implants and for that reason, we use high-quality components rather than the cheapest dental implants. What dental implants cost is dependent on the extent of the treatment that a patient needs. Some patient’s need a full arch of teeth, whilst others require a single tooth replacement. A guide to the price of dental implants at One The Gallery is below, but we will give you a more accurate breakdown of costs once we have assessed your needs so that you can budget before treatment begins.
