Restorative dentistry can be very costly, especially when you compare typical UK dental industry prices with what can be found abroad. However, at Perfect Profiles, we offer UK patients the same low costs for dental implants as those found overseas.
Perfect Profiles innovated low-cost dental implants over 18 years ago and still lead the way in the UK. We have treated thousands of patients and provided them with high-quality dental treatment at an affordable price.
Before & After Dental Implants Patient
Dental Implants are a permanent root replacement to help replace missing teeth. A small titanium screw is placed into the gumline/jawbone, the metal then fuses with the surrounding bone to create a solid foundation for prosthetics such as crowns, dentures or bridges (that will act as the tooth/teeth) to be attached to.
Not everyone will be suited to having dental implants, oral surgery is required and as such there must be sufficient jawbone, no gum disease and good general health. This is why we offer a free no-obligation consultation to assess whether you would be suitable to proceed with dental implants. A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. Perfect Profiles has two Dental Implant centres, with both dentists and oral surgeons. Our experienced dental surgery team are experts in placing implants as well as other oral surgery procedures, such as bone grafting and sinus lifts. Some habits such as smoking can affect the success of implant integration and the dentist will be able to discuss this with you at your consultation.
Some people suffer from bone loss in their mouth due to reasons such as periodontal disease or the loss of teeth. As a result, these people may think that their only option is to have dentures as there is not enough bone to support dental implants, this is not the case at Perfect Profiles. Our expert team can perform a procedure known as bone grafting.
The oral surgeon will simply add the biocompatible bone grafting material into the area where there is significant bone loss. This new bone will then need up to 6 months to fuse with the patients existing bone. Depending on how much bone is needed to be added, a patient may be able to have a dental implant placed at the same time or they may have to wait. The oral surgeon will be able to determine this at your free dental consultation. There are also solutions away from dental implants such a bridges, which can be used to help fill a gap left by a missing tooth.
The dental implant procedure is usually under local anaesthetic so you shouldn't feel any pain. As with all surgery, there will be some discomfort for a short period after your treatment, however, this should be manageable with painkillers. Using ice packs will help to reduce the swelling (Perfect Profiles supply these for you to take home) and a soft food diet is recommended for a couple of weeks to aid recovery. Many people comment that the after effects are very similar to after you’ve had an extraction.
The procedure itself is relatively quick, with a single implant taking around an hour, this may be longer if several implants are required. Once your dental implants have been placed it will take around 4 to 6 months to fully heal, during which the bone fuses with the implants. While this may feel like a long time it's worth the wait for a natural and permanent solution to missing teeth. Of course, Perfect Profiles can supply temporary solutions so that aesthetically, it won’t look like you’re missing a tooth whilst your implant treatment is ongoing.
Once your dental implant has healed you will need to look after it just as you would a real tooth/teeth. To keep your gums and teeth healthy, brush twice a day and maintain regular visits to your dentist or hygienist. If bacteria is allowed to build up around the implant this can lead to bone loss causing the implant to fail. Perfect Profiles ask that you visit them just once a year post-implant so we can ensure there are no problematic situations concerning your implants.
Our dental implants are priced individually at £680. Implants are used to support a variety of different solutions to replace missing teeth. The end prosthetic – which can be anything from a single crown replacing a single tooth, right through to full dentures – has to be added subsequently and this will help create your total costing relevant to your individual situation.
Dental implant treatment requires an implant, an abutment and an end prosthetic. Please also take into account that x-rays, complex planning, aftercare medication and possible bone grafting may also be needed, subject to the dentist’s prescription once they have assessed your situation at a consultation. We have guide treatment plans on our pricing page to demonstrate most usual inclusions.
You can find a selection of the type of solutions we offer to our patients above. We can, of course, confirm exact costs at your initial free consultation before any treatment commences so there will be no hidden surprises.
The success of your journey is our main priority and we always put your care and well-being first. We know dental issues can affect your confidence in everyday life, which is why we pride ourselves in ensuring all our patients leave the clinic with happy, healthy and confident smiles.
Nervous patients need not worry as our friendly and warm staff are here at every stage to guide and support you throughout your treatment. Our dentists are professionals but most importantly they are people just like you and they can empathise with people in all sorts of dental situations. Do not worry, you’re in safe hands!
