Dental Implants

There is a lot of information out there about dental implants and more than a few opinions on what’s great and what’s not. Here at the Hive Dental Laboratory we prefer to prefer to cut straight to the facts.

If you currently have a denture or missing teeth and would like to consider dental implants, or you have a denture on implants and need a new one made we can not only talk you through what implants are and what options are available but we can also book you a consultation with some of the best implant surgeons in Dorset.

We can also discuss with you your options for having a new denture or denture on implants and what that would involve.

We are currently the reigning ‘Best Implant Laboratory in the UK’ and are lucky enough to be led by the ‘Best Dental Technician in the UK’ so you can rest assured that your new teeth are in good hands!

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a tiny rod, normally no longer than the length of your little fingernail. This is placed in the missing tooth area and a tooth is fitted on top. The implant works almost like a raw plug.

There are many people who have the misconception that dental implants cost a fortune and are scared by the stories they hear and some of the visuals they see. It is perfectly natural to be worried by how dental implants are sometimes portrayed, but please let us reassure you that dental implant treatment is actually very cost-effective in the long-term and because we only work with the best dental surgeons and dentists, we know how predictably safe dental implant treatment can be.

When you are looking at the cost of dental implants it’s important to take into consideration the following:

  1. You do not need one implant for every tooth you need replacing. If you have a denture in place now then you will normally need anywhere between 3-6 dental implants to fix new teeth into place.
  2. When you lose teeth you start to lose bone and your other teeth can start to shift position this means that you may need further dental work done down the line, but a dental implant will halt that process.
  3. The price of a dental implant really does depend on how many you need and what you’re going to have sat on top of them.

What are my options?

When you have no teeth on your upper or lower jaw there are a number of options open to you, these can be discussed in more detail at a consultation appointment but briefly, they can range from fixed teeth attached to dental implants or a removable denture which clips onto dental implants. The options differ in cost and a dentist will be able to explain in detail which ones are suitable for you.

If you’re still concerned about the cost then please rest assured that 0% finance is available at a number of dental practices and if this is something that would interest you we could refer you to a practice that will definitely offer you this service.

So book a consultation with our Laboratory Director to chat about options now and see what we can do!
