Who is the treatment suitable for?
Fitting a single dental implant is a quick, simple and painless way to replace a single tooth (or small number of missing teeth). It may well be the perfect solution if:
- you know you are about to lose one or more teeth;
- you have a failed crown;
- you have a cracked or broken tooth;
- you have a failed root filling;
- you have a wobbly / loose tooth (or a number of loose teeth – usually from gum disease)
- you have a badly decayed tooth
If you have very recently lost one or more teeth (eg through sports injury or decay) we may be able to save you time and money. Visit our Immediate dental implant page to find out how, but you really will have to be quick! Immediate implants are also great if you know you are about to lose a tooth.
We also offer Dental Implant bridges and retained dentures for multiple missing teeth.
Does it hurt?
The most surprising thing about Dental Implants is that there is very little pain. It looks like it should hurt, but the reality is that most dental pain is caused by touching a nerve on a live tooth. In this instance, we’re removing it entirely, so whilst there is some discomfort, we are extremely careful with all of our pain management at Winning Smiles. We take the time and give all our consideration, and never rush.
While the operation is being carried out your jaw is numbed so that you don’t feel any pain. You can also choose to be sedated if you wish. Our patients tell us that if there is only one or two implants inserted, they are able to go back to work or resume normal activities on the same day.
What does the treatment involve?
After an initial free consultation to find out whether dental implants are the right treatment for you, we carry out a detailed assessment and x-rays using our specialist low dose dental CT scanner. Having the CT scanner in house prevents costly hospital CT referrals (up to £600!).
Then the next step is to come back for a surgical visit where we insert your implant into your jaw.
How much are Dental Implants ?
We are transparent and show all charges up front, and we guarantee there will be no hidden or forgotten charges.
We are offering an initial appointment to discuss treatment and assess your suitability for dental implants free of charge.
If dental implants do prove to be the best way forward for you (your choice) the costs for a single implant break down would be as follows
- Initial assessment Free
- Implant report, models, photos, clinical investigation £150
- Low dose dental CT scan of jaw area £150
- Simple implant fixture – surgery £900
- Simple Implant crown, titanium post etc £900
Why choose Winning Smiles?

The Free Consultation
Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.
And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.
We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.
