How Much Does Implant Treatment Cost, And Am I Suitable?

Dear Dr Glover. I had dental surgery 13 years ago to uncover both my adult canine teeth (kissing canines) in the roof of my palette. It took 6 years to drag the teeth down into place with the use of a brace. My canine teeth were then bonded to fill in the gaps to give a better smile. That was 8 years ago. Now it is being suggested that the teeth do not have a good shelf life and implants would be the way forward. What cost do implants come in at for two canine teeth such as mine? And is there any criteria I must meet to be able to have them? I have been told that I have gum disease which currently affects those two teeth. Many thanks, Caroline.
Hi Caroline, thank you for your question. You will need to see a hygienist before you have dental implants fitted, as it is extremely important that you have a healthy mouth before treatment commences. The hygienist will be able to help and advise you on how to treat gum disease. 

As for the cost of dental implants, depending on the clinic you go to and the procedure and equipment used, the price will vary. On average, an initial consultation will cost £50, and implants range from £900 to £2000. There will be an added cost if you require a bone graft of sinus graft. It’s best to speak to your dentist about how much he or she will charge you as it does vary from clinic to clinic. 
Hope this has been useful!
