Are Dental Implants Safe?
At DentalCarePlus our dental implant specialists have a wealth of experience behind them, so you can trust that we have the most up-to-date skills and knowledge on dental implant procedures. We will work to ensure that you have all the information you need to make the right choice of treatment for you.
Why you’re safe with us
As with all surgeries, there are risks involved. With dental surgery, these can include potential nerve damage to gums or damage to surrounding teeth. DentalCarePlus are highly-experienced and only use the best equipment and materials for all our procedures. We provide detailed treatment plans for each of our patients so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you are receiving the best possible care throughout your time with us.
Dental implants have been in use for over 30 years, proving safe and effective. They are comprised of three main components: The implant screw and abutment (connecting the screw to the crown) are usually made from titanium. The crown, bridge or denture is made from porcelain or zirconia. These are known as biocompatible materials, which means that the body will accept them. All these materials have consistently demonstrated that they integrate well with bone.
Expert care and advice
We have one of the best qualified and experienced team of implant dentists in the UK. All of them have additional training in oral surgery and are committed to providing you with the highest standard of implant based rehabilitation. They’ll answer all your questions to put your mind at rest, and will provide you with thorough information throughout your treatment and aftercare.
Our technicians use the most up-to-date methods and technology for all our procedures, and all our clinics have 3D dental cone beam CT scanners (CBCT). The scans produce a similar image of bone to an X-ray to enable us to accurately plan your treatment. Receiving a 3D dental CBCT scan ensures highly accurate pre-planning, resulting in minimised risk, lower costs and a lower number of visits.
Proven success rates
Dental implants have an average success rate of 95%. This means that only 1 in 20 of dental implant procedures may not provide long-term function. For your peace of mind, the dental implant manufacturers we use offer a lifetime guarantee on their components. We determine our clinician guarantee after a clinical assessment taking into account your individual needs determined by your dental history and oral condition.
