Cheap Dental Implants & Everything You Wanted To Know

Oh, the joy of biting into a crisp apple, or eating a crusty bread roll. It’s often simple pleasures like these that we miss when we have missing teeth. For some people, things they wouldn’t think twice about before, such as smiling or meeting new people, can now seem daunting. And it’s quite common for people with dentures or missing teeth to feel less confident than they once were.

Should I look for cheap dental implants?

We’d all like to think that where our health is concerned, money is no object. But the reality is we all have to stick to a budget. The cost of implants can vary, especially between the UK and abroad. At Perfect Pearls, our dental implant prices mean high quality treatment is affordable for everyone.

Are teeth implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are a safe, tried-and-tested way to replace missing teeth. Implants have been used in dentistry since the mid-1960s. Quote from the British Dental Health website”Implants are a safe, well-established treatment. It’s probably true to say that implants, much like natural teeth, will last for as long as you care for them.”

What if I have bone loss?

We can help. Bone grafts can replace lost bone and create a foundation for your implants. Our clinics in Luton and Wolverhampton have state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment which allows us to see a 3D picture of your mouth. Our expert oral surgeons will determine how best to replace lost bone and create the best foundation for implants.

Implants in a day – Good idea?

The reason dental implants are so like natural teeth is the integration between the jawbone and the implant. The process can take about 12 weeks. Placing the implant and a crown or bridge all in the same day means the implant has to deal with the pressure of everyday use before it is fully stable. As a result, there’s a greater chance the implant might fail. Having a dental implant in stages has a better chance of success.

How long do dental implants last?

Implants can last a lifetime if you commit to looking after them. Just as implants can replace your natural teeth, they have to be cared for like your own teeth too:

  • Brush your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks
  • Visit your dentist for check-ups as often as they recommend

Studies show that 95% of implants last a minimum of 5 years. But most will have a much longer life. Perfect Pearls offer a lifetime guarantee on their implants.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. A single implant can replace 1 tooth, or 2 can create a bridge for several teeth. Dental implants are the closest thing to having your own teeth back. In fact, many patients can’t tell the difference – and neither will anyone else.

There are 4 steps to having dental implants:

  1. Agree a treatment plan
    Visit a Perfect Pearls clinic in Luton or Wolverhampton for a free consultation. You’ll meet your dentist, talk about your treatment and agree on a plan. If you have bone loss, your dentist will discuss how we can help.
  2. Have your implant placed
    When you’re ready, you can arrange an appointment to have your implant. You’ll return to our clinic, where your dentist will place the implant in your jaw. It will be covered with a ‘healing cap’ to protect the implant.
  3. Allow time for bonding
    Over about 3/4 months, the bone in your jaw will begin to bond with the titanium in the implant. This process creates a strong foundation for your new teeth.
  4. Get your new teeth fitted
    4-6 months later, It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for – your new smile. Your dentist will fit your custom-made crown or bridge.
