Implant Systems

At bridge dental we now are able to offer mid range and premium implant systems. We have been offering the premium systems Nobel Biocare and Straumann for some years. They that have been around for the longest, so we know how their implants perform over the long term.

The mid range Implantium implants have not been around as long as the premium brands, but they still have a considerable and successful history spanning about 20 years. The key factor for all the implants we offer is that they are all pure titanium, and do not include alloys that some cheaper implants contain.

Typically prices start from £2500 for Implantium implants and £2850 for premium implants, a metal abutment(connector), and a bonded porcelain crown, including all x-rays, models and surgical guides. We believe this represents real value for money while still having the finest treatment.

Dental implants are now the number one choice to fill a space where possible. It can be confusing looking through the myriad of adverts and promotions about implants, so hopefully this will answer a lot of questions.

Why are there so many different prices, some a lot cheaper than others?

Answer: this mostly depends on the type of implant used, as with any item there are varying standards of quality. Is the implant pure titanium? This is important as implants made from alloys or mixtures of other metals with titanium may be connected to allergies. Additionally the original research on dental implants was based on pure titanium. We do not know how these cheaper implants perform over a length of time.

Has the implant system the dentist uses been around for a long time to be able to show their implants are successful? In 10 years, if the implant company no longer exists and the crown on the implant needs changing, how can the required parts be ordered?

The experience of the dentist may also be reflected in the charge. How long has the dentist been placing dental implants? Where and for how long did they train? What are their success rates?

At bridge dental we only use the two systems that have been around for the longest, so we know how their implants perform over the long term. They are also the most used worldwide, and they are the implants we would and have placed for us or our team. These systems are Nobel biocare and Straumann.

These are the premium brands and as such the costs are greater than the cheaper systems. Typically prices start from £2500 for an implant, a metal abutment(connector), and a bonded porcelain crown, including all x-rays, models and surgical guides. We believe this represents real value for money while still having the finest treatment.
