Many restorative problems can be solved with dental implants and there are some that cannot be solved satisfactorily in any other way.
We understand referring practitioners sometimes like to complete the restoration of dental implants in their own practices. We are happy to provide just the surgery or surgery and restoration.
Restoration can be easier than it first sounds, the difficulty is often knowing which components to buy or how the impression technique differs from conventional crown and bridgework.
To solve this problem we have included additional information on this page to help you should you wish to restore your own case. In addition we will write to you with a list of the components you will need, their costs and how to order them. We will also refer you to pages on this site which will show the procedures and in particular the impression techniques necessary.
If you are referring a patient for dental implants please let us know if you would like to restore the case yourself.
The cost of the treatment will vary according to the degree of difficulty, we will therefore provide your patient with a Treatment Plan prior to commencing any work.
In all but the most simple cases we will need some time to study the case and formulate treatment options, we will then have a second appointment to discuss this with your patient. We do not make a charge for this second consultation.
Paying for Dental Implants
After implant surgery there is very often a healing period of 3 to 6 months before an implant can be restored. This also has the effect of spreading the cost of dental implant treatment.
We have produced a patient information leaflet for implant dentistry which may be downloaded and printed out. Please give a copy of this leaflet to your patient.
To refer your patient, simply telephone with your patient's details and an outline of the case. We will contact your patient and arrange an appointment. Please give the patient a referral letter and any radiographs etc to bring with them to their appointment. Alternatively send these items in the post.
Download a referral form and e-mail us. When we receive your message we will contact your patient and arrange an appointment.
