Here at Boulevard Dental Practice, we understand how someone's confidence can be knocked by gaps in their smile, our implants and implant retained dentures look to return that smile to your face. Our expert team have several years’ experience in placing implants for patients across Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, using only the best models on the market to ensure your smile is a permanent one.
Dental implants are now recognised to be the treatment of choice in many cases to restore the gaps in our mouths from missing teeth. Dr Costello along with the dental team have been providing this form of treatment now for several years and the success rate is extremely high.
Treatment would involve an initial assessment of the mouth to gain insight into what you would like to achieve to restore function and appearance and a detailed explanation of the implant process.
Following this the next stage would be a scan to assess bones level and health of the bone which is arranged by us and subsequently carried out at the practice by a mobile scanning service.
Pending the result of the scan and your suitability for the treatment we can then go ahead and begin the first stage of implant placement. The treatment will involve a number of appointments and various stages which you will be guided through by Mr Costello and his experienced team. On average the time scale from consultation to actually having teeth placed is approximately six months.
An approximate cost per implant is £2650 which includes a scan and
1 implant carrying 1-2 teeth. If more than one implant is required these could be less expensive than the first implant as part of the process has already been carried out.
However we are aware that patients are often reluctant to make that first step in restoring their smile due to fear of unknown costs or anxiety and embarrassment.
Rest assured you are important to us and as our treatment is very much tailored to the individual patient we recommend that you attend for a free of charge consultation, as often treatment may not be as complicated or as expensive as you think.
This type of treatment can be a life-changing procedure, not only helping with eating and chewing but often helping patients to feel more confident in their appearance. The benefits of dental implants, as opposed to dentures, are that they are permanently fixed in the mouth so do not move around and cause discomfort or embarrassment. Also, the placement of dental implants does not involve treatment to healthy existing teeth, which can sometimes be the case in placing bridges to restore a gap.
We are also able to offer implant retained dentures which can be of huge benefit to the stability of otherwise unstable or ill-fitting dentures.
There are a few options available and are suitable for patients that have some missing teeth or for those who are already full denture wearers.
Maybe you are conscious of eating out or meeting new people due to loose dentures, if so then an implant retained denture may be the answer for you.
Subject to consultation we can decide, with you, the best way to restore your smile, confidence and function.
