Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed in the jaw to support artificial teeth such as crowns and bridges. The titanium screw is placed directly into the jawbone and replaces the missing tooth root.
Dental implants improve a person’s smile, make eating easier and help boost self-confidence. Dental implants are a unique alternative to natural teeth. They are a permanent tooth replacement solution and require minimal maintenance during use.
It is not possible to give an exact price for dental implants. The cost of treatment depends on a number of variables, such as the type of material used, sedation service, number of teeth and personalized treatment plan.
Although the cost of dental implants is variable, it is possible to give information about the base cost. The cost for a single dental implant is between £400 and £700. These prices include the upper part of the implant (abudment). It does not include the dental crown and other necessary treatments.
In most cases, patients need more than one implant. The cost of All-on-Four and All-on-Six treatments for partial and complete edentulism, where multiple implants are placed, ranges from £4600 to £4900 per jaw.
The cost of dental implants is not limited to the dental implants themselves. There are several additional costs such as pre-operative preparation (consultation, x-rays, CT scan, tooth extraction, bone grafting), dental crowns and post-operative care.
The amount of experience the dentist or surgeon has also has an impact on the total cost of dental implants. Going to a specialist with many years of experience and certifications in dental implants may cost more, but the risk of complications or other problems is much lower.

While dental implants may seem like a lot of money to spend, they are actually the most cost-effective solution for replacing teeth. Solutions such as dentures and bridges need repair or replacement after 5-10 years. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime when properly maintained.
The most important thing for dental implants is to have a healthy jawbone. This means that dental implants are placed on a solid foundation. In addition to providing support for dentures, dental implants help prevent the jawbone from deteriorating.
