Are dental implants worth it?
Each case is unique – and it may be that implants might be the more expensive option than the alternatives for your particular problem. The usual alternatives for a full implant are to have a crown fitted or bridgework done. A basic implant plus crown can cost anywhere between two and three thousand GBP – and the fees many vary drastically depending on your condition.
But while the upfront cost for implants can be a lot more than other types of restoration, the investment can pay off for you in the long run. You may not even need an implant for every missing tooth – your dentist will discuss your individual needs with you during consultation.

Benefits of implants
Most of the time implants feel more natural, comfortable and secure than other methods for replacing teeth, like dentures for example.
- Feel – Because the implants are securely embedded into your jawbone they feel much more natural and comfortable than dentures.
- Convenience – You don’t have to worry about denture glues, or the dentures slipping, sliding, falling out or clicking as you speak.
- Nutrition – Your ability to chew will be better with implants. Regular dentures can make chewing an almost impossible task for some foods – especially if the dentures aren’t a good fit. You may also find your sense of taste reduced with a normal denture – as the traditional upper dentures cover your palate as well as your teeth.
- Self Esteem – Because they are so much like your natural teeth – within days you will forget you even have them. You won’t have to worry about denture problems or people noticing that you have missing teeth. You will suffer no speech problems. your self esteem will skyrocket all because of a new, healthy smile.
