The investment in your smile: The long-term cost benefits of dental implants

If you’ve got just one or many missing teeth, dental implants are one of the best ways to fill in the gaps.

But let’s face it.

They can be pretty pricey.

With costs in the UK ranging between £1850 – £3,900, the amount you’ll pay for dental implants depends on several different factors, including how many teeth you want to replace, the severity of your condition and if you need any additional dental work to prepare for your implant treatment.

If you’re considering getting dental implants, you might be wondering if these high costs are really worth it.

In this post, our experts explore some of the long-term cost benefits of dental implants and why they may be the best option to replace your missing teeth.

They’re the longest-lasting tooth restoration option

Investing in your oral health and wellness is incredibly important.

When you lose teeth, you’re at risk of loss of jawbone density – which can lead to further, more costly oral health problems in the future.

If you choose dentures or bridges, you’re not protected from loss of jawbone density, but with dental implants, retention of the jawbone is guaranteed – which also helps prevent tooth movement and changes to your facial structure.

They have low maintenance costs

Dental implants are the closest thing to your natural teeth.

They allow you to eat and chat as normal, and you clean them in the exact same way as you would your natural teeth – by brushing twice daily and flossing.

No periodic refittings or adhesive applications are required, just regular check-ups and cleanings every three to six months with your preferred dentist.

There’s no denying that the upfront cost of dental implants is expensive, but when you look at it as a long-term investment in your oral health, the hefty price tag is more than worth it.

Client: Marion
Treatment: Complete mouth secured with implants

“The minute I met Martin, I just knew he was so calm and relaxing. So then we had a discussion and Martin said what he could do and it had to be what our pocket could afford as well and we went ahead with it. The experience I had at this dentist was unbelievable, it was a journey I loved every minute of.”


Client: Dee
Treatment: Dental Implants

“There’s always smiling, handshakes, hugs and plenty of tea and coffee. They looked after my husband who was there for the day. They do the sedation and Hayley looked after me. Obviously I was unaware of exactly what they were doing, but they always make you feel so comfortable. Although you’re nervous, I don’t think I could’ve gone and got the same treatment anywhere else.”
