The dental implant guarantee on carried out with Dental Holiday is now a lifetime guarantee for all our dental patients from the UK.
Dental implants are the most predictable and logical method of replacing a lost or damaged human tooth. We now have multiple decades of clinical and basic sciences research to support us, and many years of clinical experiences to know what works and what does not. As the number of cases of dental implants, and the number of dental clinicians performing these implant treatments both increase, UK dentistry patients should know and understand what is the realistic outcome and longevity of this type of treatment.
We are dental implant specialists and after 10 years of experience day in and day out with UK dental implant patients, we say that all implants placed by a qualified clinician should receive a lifetime warranty.
This isn’t a rhetoric, nor a marketing claim. A simple conviction and philosophy, whereby we provide the best possible therapy we can perform, with the best materials and knowledge, and with the patient partnering in a life-long maintenance and care. Why not? We know it should work.
It’s very rare for a dental implant to fail, but as with any medical or dental procedure it is possible. If this happens, and you have followed the post-operative guidelines, the dental implant will be replaced without charge as long as it’s clinically viable. If bone grafting is needed, a charge will be made to cover this extra work. As you’d expect, refunds aren’t given.
If no immediate problems occur in the first couple of weeks then you can be quite sure that your dental implant is there to stay. A dental implant is built to last for a lifetime, however you should visit a dental hygienist every 6 months to keep the implanted area clean and make sure that there is no future loss of jawbone or onset of gum disease.
Having a severe accident, fight, or even cancer can cause the loss of a dental implant and the guarantee does not cover these cases of course.
