Going private – is it the only choice?

Unfortunately, when it comes to dental implants, going to a private, cosmetic or restorative dentist be your only choice. 

Because they improve the aesthetics of your mouth they are mainly considered to be a cosmetic procedure, so therefore, they are not redeemable via the NHS.

Can you get dental implants for FREE?

There are sneaky ways you might be able to get your dental implants for free.

For example, if there is a clinical need for you to get them, there is a rare chance that the NHS will cover the fees of your treatment. 

There are also dental implant grants available, which can help patients cover the cost of their implants. However, it will only pay a portion of the fee, but it will help patients. See more about dental implant grants here.

Other ways to get treatment for free is by volunteering to be part of a dental academy – students and young dental professionals training need to practice these treatments, so you will be volunteering your mouth for these dentists to gain some experience. Learn more about academies here.

If you are struggling to pay for dental implants, you might be able to spread the cost of your payments with 0% finance, which offers customers the chance to make interest-free payments for up to 24 months.
