How much do dental implants start from?
We have a range of affordable quality and premium implant systems for you to choose from. Prices start from as low as £1350 for a single tooth dental implant with a crown.
We have set prices for implant treatments, but an accurate fee can only be given after the dentist has provided your formal implant assessment.
Yes, absolutely correct! Just fill out the details on the online for,, call us or email us and we will be touch.
How does your clinic keep their implant prices so low?
We are able to offer quality implants to our patients at affordable prices because we provide a lot of implant treatments to our patients. This makes us good and efficient at running an implant clinic. We also bulk buy our implant materials at a discounted rate- we can then pass the savings on to our patients. However, we do not compromise on the quality or workmanship- this is reflected by our reputation and the testimonials our patients have given us.
Being conveniently located in Hertfordshire, we don’t suffer the enormous overheads and rent of a high street or a Central London location. Having said that, you can get to our clinic in 20 minutes from Central London!

What is a SAME DAY DENTAL IMPLANT?
If you have a gap and would like a FIXED tooth on the same day, an implant screw can be gently inserted under your gum and a fake tooth attached on top, so that you leave the clinic on the same day with a tooth.
If your bad / loose tooth has to be removed, an implant can be placed after the tooth has been removed. A fake tooth is then attached on top.
Our implant dentist will make the necessary assessment to see if this is possible for you, should you decide to go down this route.
See the first video on this page to view an animation of same day implants.
What will happen at my first consultation visit?
We will welcome you to our dental practice give you a medical questionnaire to fill out. Our implant dentist, Ric, will see you in his clinic and you can let him know what bothers you about your teeth. Ric will have a look in your mouth and give you his opinion.
I need routine dental care. Does The Implant Clinic only do implants?
The good thing about us is that we provide restorative dental care in addition to implant treatment. When we see a patient for an implant consultation, we have to assess their full mouth and also the teeth adjacent to the proposed implant site. We like to make sure that the adjacent teeth are healthy and that an implant can be placed next to them. If they are not healthy, we would have to discuss your treatment options so that we can save these teeth.
Our dentist, Ric, is very experienced at providing implant and restorative dentistry. In fact, these two disciplines of dentistry go hand-in-hand with each other. You cannot provide implant dentistry effectively if the restorative aspect is disregarded.
Come in and have a chat with us to see how you can get your smile back 🙂
Can I pay monthly?
Yes! We offer interest-free finance for 6, 10 or 12 months. This makes it affordable for our patients to receive the care they deserve.
Can I have sedation?
Yes, we recommend you to be sedated during your implant surgery, especially if you are an anxious patient or having multiple implants.
We offer IV sedation. Our implant team will check your suitability to have sedation.
Sedation is also good to keep your blood pressure at bay. Anxiety at the dentist can have a negative impact on a patient’s blood pressure, so it’ll benefit those patients with such health problems.
You need to be aware that a responsible adult can come with you to the clinic and look after you for the rest of the day after your implant treatment under sedation. We will give you the full set of easy-to-follow instructions when you have your assessment.
I am nervous about the surgery. What are my pain-free options for the implant placement stage?
Don’t worry as our team will take great care of you. We take our time with all treatments and offer the following pain-free options:
Gently administered local anaesthetic with numbing gel applied first to the gum
If you don’t want IV sedation, we have other simpler sedation methods which we have been successfully using for our patients. More information will be given to you at your consultation visit.
Our Implant Dentist, Ric, has a Diploma in Conscious Sedation from King’s College London. This means that he is able to provide the implant surgery whilst his patients are fully relaxed, having little or no recollection of the procedure. In addition to your implant planning and assessment appointments, we would have to check your suitability to be sedated. Please let us know at your consultation visit if you like to consider the sedation option.
Most nervous patients opt for the sedation method. Please note, you don’t need to be sedated for every single implant appointment; mainly the implant surgery stage.
Which components make up the dental implant system?
A dental implant is made up of smaller components, which attach to one another to form a tooth-like appliance:
1. The implant fixture is the screw which is gently inserted under the gum into the jawbone. The patient undergoes a small surgical operation to have this implant placed; it’s a bit like the opposite of a tooth removal. The implant fixture is buried underneath the gum and it cannot be seen. The Implant Surgeon places this fixture. The patient has the option to have this stage carried out whilst being sedated so that they are relaxed.
2. The abutment is the component which is screwed on top of the implant fixture.
3. Various components can now be attached to the abutment:
For a single missing tooth, a crown is constructed to slot over the abutment and is held in place by glue or a mini-screw.
For patients with several missing teeth, a long span fixed bridge can be made which can be held in place by 2 implants. Think of a bridge running over a river with supports at either end.
For patients with no teeth, a denture can be stabilised by positioning it over the implants. Male and female components are used which lock into one another. This denture can either be removable (only removable by force) or permanently fixed into position.
What is a CT scanner?
It is an x-ray which shows your jawbone in three dimension.
Traditional dental x-rays are 2-d, which means you can only analyse the teeth and bone from one direction only. A CT scan will show us how much bone there is to place an implant.
And yes, we have a hi-tech CT scanner at our implant clinic!
Having dental x-rays and a CT scan is safe. Some patient think of the excessive amount of radiation; but the radiation risk is very low, otherwise dentists won’t be taking x-rays.
How soon after having a tooth removed can a dental implant be placed? / SAME DAY TOOTH OPTION
An implant and a fake natural looking tooth can be placed on the same day a bad tooth has been extracted. Our implant dentist will be able to assess if you can have this option. This is our preferred treatment option and this principal can be applied to a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full jaw implant set.
If you had your tooth removed at another clinic, we can provide an implant 4-8 weeks after your extraction, depending on how the gum heals up and the bone under the gum reshapes. It all depends on the patient’s clinical situation.
You have to bear in mind that when a patient has a tooth removed then they are left with a defect in their gum and jawbone. Overtime, this defect is filled with the patient’s own bone and gum.
If the extraction is simple then a period of 4-8 weeks is usually observed before inserting the implant fixture. This is because new jawbone is required to support the implant fixture.
If the patient’s tooth has been a challenge to extract or has been surgically removed, vital jawbone may be lost in this way. An extended period of time may be required before assessing the site for implant treatment.
It is important that an infected tooth is not left untreated, even if it causing the patient no issues. This is because vital jawbone can be lost due to the bacteria and infection, making implant dentistry a bit of a challenge. If an infected tooth cannot be saved then it is best to have it removed at the earliest opportunity to prevent unnecessary jawbone loss.
Do you guarantee your work?
Yes. We’ll provide you more information when you visit us for your consultation.
Implants can last for a long time. We’ll plan your case meticulously so that we chose the optimal site for implant placement. Bacteria is one of the reasons why patients can have implant problems, so we’ll show you on how to keep your implant teeth clean with the correct tooth brushing, flossing and inter-dental hygiene techniques.
Implants are not “fit and forget”- just like your natural teeth, they need to be checked routinely for any potential problems and for any debris and plaque accumulation around them. By practicing good oral hygiene, the lifetime of your teeth and implants are extended.
IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT YOU LEAVE WITH AN IMPLANT TOOTH ON THE SAME DAY
Once the implant fixture is surgically placed, a healing period of 3 months is observed before the final crown or any other superstructure can be attached on top of the abutment and implant fixture. This healing period varies according to many factors and the site the implant is placed in. If the implant fixture is placed into very strong bone and the healing period is uneventful, then as a general rule we can attach the crown after 3 months. In softer bone, a longer healing period is advised so that the patient’s own jawbone can grow around the implant to make it solid.
A CT Scan is a 3D image of your jawbone. Sometimes we take a CT scan for complex implant cases or when the Implant Surgeon would like further information about the jawbone quantity and quality. Practically speaking, it is only when an implant fixture is actually placed that the Implant Surgeon can determine the quality of the jawbone.
Some parts of the mouth have got hard bone. For example, the bone around your chin area is usually strong. Bone density can only vary in different ethnic minorities and the general build of the patient (imagine a rugby player vs. a frail person).
In complex cases where the patient does not have enough jawbone, the patient’s natural bone can be utilised to substitute the defect or bone from other sources can be used. Your Implant Surgeon will discuss this with you if this is the case.
Patients are delighted when they have their missing teeth restored with a fixed appliance. It can help them to smile, eat, get rid of their dentures and increase their confidence levels. An implant tooth is not bulky like a denture and is more comfortable.
If the patient has had a gap for some time, then the implant tooth can feel strange for a little while. Most patients will be able to adapt quickly. The gum may feel tight for a few days until it adjusts to the contours of the new crown.
Sometimes, you can have the implant on the SAME day as having your tooth removed. This also includes the fake implant tooth.
When you have a tooth removed, it leaves a gap in your jawbone. This gap is replaced naturally with your own jawbone in about 3 months. The implant can be placed into this newly formed jawbone.
Not necessarily. It depends on the occlusal load, aesthetics and amount of bone available. Our implant dentist will be able to tell you more at your consultation.
Apart from dental implants, do you offer routine dentistry?
Yes! We offer routine dental check-ups, including hygiene cleaning, fillings, crowns, root canal treatments, etc. As well as providing dental implants, we have great knowledge about fixing natural teeth. First and foremost, we are a restorative dental clinic and will always try to save you money and your tooth by providing you the cost-effective option. If your tooth cannot be saved, we can remove it and provide a SAME DAY IMPLANT TOOTH, providing you have favourable clinical factors.
We will look after you from start to finish!
You can trust us completely. We are upfront about your treatment choices, methods of payment and we will ensure that you receive high quality dental care. If you are having deep sedation, we will ensure you get home safely with our car service.
Am I too old to ave dental implants?
We treat dental patients for implant dentistry who are in their 70’s and 80’s. We have even treated patient’s in their 90’s! There is no upper age limit to receive advanced dental care. When you come in for your consultation we would assess your suitability for implant treatment.
My dentist has told be that I can’t have dental implants because I don’t have adequate jawbone, so I have to stick with dentures.
We get asked this a lot and without having an implant assessment and taking a CT scan it is not viable to make this conclusion. With the advances in dental technology and the use of mini dental implants, you may still have the implant option!
I’ve heard it’s cheaper to have dental care and implant dentistry done abroad
We appreciate the cost of dental care can be high for some patients. That’s why we are offering a fully restored implant crown FROM £1350!
At our clinic, we are constantly evolving our practice to make quality private dentistry affordable to patients, without compromising the quality or rushing your care. We aim to make our patients benefit from the way we run our clinic, both from a quality patient experience right through to affordable dental care.
Some patients want their dentist to be available, right there and then, to reassure a them if an issue arises during their care. That’s us! Basically, if you experience any problems during or after treatment, we WANT you to phone us and see us at your next available appointment so that we can sort out whatever is bothering you. Remember, we’re only a short drive away and you don’t have to jump on a plane to get to us!
To ensure patients don’t miss out on the great care we have to offer, you can spread the cost of your treatment in interest-free monthly payments.
If you choose to go abroad for your treatment, ensure that the dentist treating you provides you the reassurance that they’ll be there to fix your problem, should an issue arise.
We are not in competition with our local dentists nor with “cheap” dental implant companies that provide treatment abroad. We simply believe in providing cost-effective dental solutions and a great dental experience for our patients! In fact, we work with local dentists who refer their patients to us for dental implant treatment under sedation.
Do you offer mini dental implants?
Yes! Mini implants are a great alternative to avoiding complex surgery and this is one of the options that may be presented to you.
Nerve re-positioning, sinus surgery and bone grafting can potentially be avoided with mini dental implants.
Once you have your implant assessment and your CT scan, this will give us an idea whether mini dental implants can be used for your case.
Why does implant take so long to complete?
We can extract your bad teeth and give you implants and prosthetic teeth on the same day, but you have to come back to have the final implant teeth.
Why can’t I just stick with my implant tooth that I have on the SAME DAY?
The bone has to grow and adhere to the implant surface (osseo-integration). This takes at least 10 weeks from the day your implant has to be placed.
The gum has to settle and grow around your new implant tooth.
The SAME DAY implant tooth is made up in soft material so that it is easy to adjust and fit. This has to be changed to a final hard-wearing prosthetic crown that is going to service you for many years.
