Dental Implants from €1500 at Pearl Dental and Beauty, Dublin 2

Dental implants at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2 are more affordable than ever, with fees from €1500 for multiple units. And these are Ankylos implants, one of the leading implant manufacturers in Europe, not mini-implants or obscure cheaper implant types. The fee for a standard dental implant at Pearl Dental includes everything- assessment, surgery stage, restoration and review visits. There are no hidden fees to surprise or disapoint, and we pride ourselves on our committment to service and customer satisfaction. Please note that a definite quote can only be provided after assessment, as there are many factors that influence the treatment plan, and therefore the cost, of dental implants.

A dental implant is generally the most complete and effective method of replacing a missing tooth, and is a remarkably civilised procedure, generally requiring no time away from work, (except the treatment appointments), usually involves little or no pain, and is now an incredibly reliable procedure in the hands of a competent and experienced dentist who is prepared to take the necessary time and care to ensure success. Dental implants are not a procedure to be undertaken during a weeks holiday to foreign climes, as the planning, consent and undertaking of such procedures requires more than a cursory visit, and dental implants that go wrong often require immediate intervention, which can be much more difficult to access if the dentist is 3 hours away on a plane!

Many successful and competent dentists carry out dental implant procedures in other countries, but if they tell you that you only need a weeks visit, move on to the more conscientious dentist who accepts the fact that implants need careful planning, careful explanation and consent, and a high level of technical skill to be successful. Wherever you decide that your implants will be carried out, ensure that the dentist is expecting at least 5 or 6 visits from initial assessment to final restoration, and ensure that they give a warranty of at least 5 years on all the work, with no further cost to be incurred by you if anything goes wrong. 

Here at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2, we guarantee all of our dental implants, fixtures and crowns for a minimum of 5 years (subject to certain criteria), and don’t expect you to pay for anything should there be a failure in that timeframe.

Finally, be aware that dental implants require excellent maintenance regimes, both by you, and your dentist. Here at Pearl Dental, we advise all of our dental implant patients to see our hygienist, Joann, on a regular basis to ensure that the implant is maintained impeccably, along with the rest of the teeth, and to ensure that the patient’s oral hygiene is optimised to maximise gum health.

Dental Implants- how and why.

You’ve all heard about them, you all know they’re expensive, and many of you wonder what they’re for. Dental implants are probably one of the greatest developments in the history of dentistry.

Once upon a time, anyone missing a tooth had only 3 options; a gap, which most of you don’t want anymore; a denture, which more and more of you really cannot abide the thoughts of; and bridgework, which is expensive, and often quite destructive to the adjacent teeth.

One day, a rather enterprising man thought that it may be a good idea to screw a metal post into a willing participants jawbone to see what may happen, and as if by the magic of the tooth fairy, the bone accepted this happily, and it was then possible to add a crown to the top of the post to restore the missing tooth permanently. Implant dentistry was born, and has developed in leaps and bounds since.

Where once we put everyone to sleep for the procedure, it has now become so routine that most can happily be placed in the dental surgery with nothing more than a local anaesthetic, and little or no time away from work, and the options for more difficult cases are expanding almost daily. Full dentures need no longer be the flippy- flappy mouthful they once were, as we can now place implants as anchors for the dentures, making the possibility of toffees (which is probably one of the reasons you have no teeth anyway!) and apples a realistic one again.

For a single missing tooth, after GAA, bicycle or Friday night mishaps, an implant can restore the space so effectively that often it is impossible to detect what is tooth and what is crown, and the biggest advantage is the fact that the adjacent teeth can be left untouched.

If your dentist is not offering implants themselves, they will certainly have a colleague to whom they can refer, and if your dentist is placing implants, ensure that they are using full sterile surgical scrubs for each case, and that they offer some guarantee on the work undertaken.
