Five-star rated implant dentists in London, SE1.
If you’ve landed here, you’ll likely already know what dental implants are and how incredible they are for replacing missing teeth. But how much do dental implants cost? And what’s the process of payment like?
The average cost of a dental implant in the UK is around £3,000. Our implants are priced £50 cheaper than the UK average, which is highly competitive for a central dental practice in London.
Many private practices throughout London have priced their dental implant prosthetics and surgeries differently. There will always be a base cost for the implant titanium screw itself, abutment and crown, with the surgery, dentist time and any preliminary work charged additionally.
Become a new patient of Mint Dental Clinic in SE1 for only £95, which includes your first comprehensive examination and scans.
Before discovering the cost, it’s important to determine whether you qualify for dental implant treatment because not everyone is a good candidate. If you’ve been ignoring missing teeth for some time, the bone in your jaw has likely begun to deplete (which can happen within a few weeks of losing a tooth).
And whilst Mint Dental Clinic has multiple implant-based solutions that allow patients to receive dental implants without needing pre-implant procedures like bone grafts and sinus lifts, you’ll still need to be assessed beforehand.
Implant assessments allow our dentists to evaluate the condition of your oral health and bone jaw density. But they also allow patients to further their education around implants and learn which implant system will be the most successful and fit their lifestyle.
Dental implants are very rarely redeemable via the NHS.
It might be confusing for patients to see different prices from practice to practice, but it’s important to remember that implant surgery is generally considered a bespoke service as each patient has different needs and requirements.
One London patient, for example, might have ample bone quality, where an implant can be fitted immediately.
Whereas another patient might require a dental bone graft procedure to place the implant, increasing the overall cost of their reconstruction treatment. After a consultation with an implant dentist, you will be delivered a treatment plan that will outline.
When you choose Mint Dental Clinic, you instantly gain access to our incredible dentists, who use advanced equipment to diagnose your problem faster and more accurately than ever before.
Most patients don’t know that whilst the implant treatment costs might seem overwhelming, you’ll still pay in instalments even if you choose not to undertake finance options.
Typically 50% of the final payment is taken before your implant surgery, and as there is a period of three months of healing time, we take the following 50% once this stage is completed.
Only when we place the crown will patients need to pay the remaining balance of their treatment. We find that this has helped patients break down the cost of their treatment and afford it more easily with a break in between.
Dental implants are not cheap because they are the most advanced form of tooth replacement in today’s dentistry. Dental implants are long-term, tooth-like and function just like natural teeth would. Therefore, they come at a cost. This might lead patients to shop around for their dental implants and even go abroad. As reputable dentists, we would have to advise against such measures.
Cheaper implants are cheaper for a reason. And in some cases, people travelling abroad, who face complications or problems, might find it difficult to find a UK dentist to rectify the work back home as foreign dentists might use different systems, materials and products.
For example, we’ve had patients with metal plates exposed in their mouths who were turned away by many great practices. However, at Mint Dental, we do our best to help where we can and are known to take on and handle complex cases. Call 020 7928 4474.
