How much do implants cost?
A fully restored single tooth implant with a white crown starts from £1350. We offer various implant systems and options, all affordable within your budget. We also offer a pay monthly plan. If you require additional treatment then we would work out a package deal for you. It is important that you have a thorough assessment to plan your implant treatment.

I am nervous about the surgery. What are my pain-free options for the implant placement stage?
Don't worry as our team will take great care of you. We take our time with all treatments and offer the following pain-free options:
-Gently administered local anaesthetic with numbing gel applied first to the gum
-Light sedation with nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”)
-Deep sedation with intravenous midazolam
Our Implant Dentist, Dr. Dedi, has a Diploma in Conscious Sedation from King's College London. This means that he is able to provide the implant surgery with his patients being fully relaxed, having little or no recollection of the procedure. In addition to your implant planning and assessment appointments, we would have to check your suitability to be sedated. Please let us know at your consultation visit if you like to consider the sedation option. Most nervous patients opt for the sedation method. Please note, you don't need to be sedated for every single implant appointment; mainly the implant surgery stage.
How long do I have to wait after having a tooth removed before I can have an implant?
Once a tooth is removed, it will leave a gap in your jaw bone. The body will fill this gap up with natural jaw bone within a few months. An implant can then be placed into jaw bone. Sometimes it may be beneficial to place an implant the same day a tooth is removed. There must be certain favourable clinical conditions for this- our Implant Surgeon will discuss with you.
Do I need an implant for every single missing tooth?
Not necessarily. It depends on the occlusal load, aesthetics and amount of bone available. Our implant dentist will be able to tell you more at your consultation.
How long will it take to get an implanted tooth?
In the vast majority of cases we aim to finish within 3-4 months of you having your initial implant surgery so that you have a fully functional natural looking tooth.
I have all/most of my teeth missing in my jaw. What are my options?
There are many treatment variables, both with fixed and removable teeth. Each option is dependent on the patient’s financial budget and what is possible in their mouth. Our Implant Expert will be happy to discuss more at the time of your consultation.
There are variations with each treatment modality, but these are the main ones we offer:
· Denture only
· Denture supported by 2 implants
· Denture supported by 4 implants
· Denture supported by 4 implants and a bar
· Fixed teeth supported by 4 implants
· Fixed teeth supported by 6 implants
· Fixed teeth supported by individual implants
As a general rule, the more implants you have placed, the more secure your false teeth will fit in. The number of implants which need to be used to replace your missing teeth depend on varying factors:
· Your budget
· Your smile aesthetics
· The final aesthetic outcome desired
· The quantity of your jawbone
· The quality of your jawbone
· Anatomical features such as the extent of your sinuses and where your nerves are positioned (inferior alveolar and mental nerves in particular)
· Whether you would like a stable denture (which is "rock-solid" but still removable) or if you would like fixed implant teeth (non-removable)
· Your oral hygiene factors
· Any pre-existing periodontal disease ("gum disease)
What technology does Herts Dental have to ensure my implant treatment goes smoothly?
We have a very expensive bit of equipment called a CT scanner. This is essentially a 3D x-ray machine which can help to plan your implant treatment with great accuracy. Unlike conventional x-rays, which only give a 2D view, a CT scanner can help the Implant Surgeon visualise your jaw bone in 3D. We provide every stage of implant treatment under one roof.
