Terms and Conditions

  • This is a training course where qualified and UK registered dentists place your implants under supervision of the course directors who are experienced implant surgeons.
  • The treatment is carried out in a safe and controlled environment where some dentists would be observing the surgeries either directly (looking over) or through a camera link.
  • As this is a teaching environment, treatments will take longer than usual.
  • Photography is carried out continuously throughout the procedure for documentation and teaching.
  • You shall be screened and examined prior to being selected. There shall be no charge for the screening and examination. If you are not suitable for medical, clinical or for other reasons, you will be advised. If the decision is made not to accept you on the course, this is absolute and final.
  • If you require some minor bone grafting at the time of implant placement, this would be provided at no extra charge.
  • If, during the procedure, it was deemed unsafe to continue for any reason, the procedure would be aborted and a full refund will be made.
  • There is no guarantee that your placed implant would integrate as this is largely an individual response. If an implant fails within 4 months of placement, it would be replaced free of charge; however; if it is deemed irreplaceable, a refund of 75% of the fee paid, shall be made. 25% is retained for the cost of consumables, materials and time.
  • Successfully integrated implants would normally be restored with crowns/bridges within 6 months of placement.
  • No refunds or replacements shall be offered if failures are due to disease, misuse or neglect.
  • After restoration, the implant crowns/bridges would be guaranteed for one year. Subject to regular attendance and checks at your own dentist / our practice and follow up x-rays sent to us to monitor once a year.
  • Please note that your biological make-up determines how successful grafts and implants are – and the long term survival. Any change in your medical status or biological makeup in the future cannot be predicted and its effect on the long term survival cannot be known in advance, therefore, you may require additional treatment in the future which would incur certain fees.
  • It is important to remember that implants are not “Fit and Forget” and that they need the same care and attention as natural teeth.
  • On completion of the treatment it will be necessary for you to attend a number of recall appointments to check the condition of the implants and to adjust the bite if required.
  • After this, ongoing regular six monthly appointments should be made as normal for dental check-ups. You should still keep your regular hygiene appointments as a build-up of plaque will cause problems and possible bone loss from around your implants. This could result in their eventual loss.
  • The frequency of hygienist visits will depend on your standard of oral hygiene. These maintenance requirements will incur additional costs above the initial fees.
  • It is also important that you inform the surgery immediately should you detect any mobility or loosening of your implants. Occasionally, the small screws which help to retain the implant attachments become loose due to either heavy or abnormal biting. This is an easy matter to rectify if caught early as it entails retightening the screws and adjusting the bite or removing the cause of the loosening.
  • Failure to attend early will result in possible fracture of the screw or even worse, damage to the implants.
  • Once the implant treatment is completed, you will be referred back to your regular dentist for continuing care. Continuing care is chargeable and will attract normal fees.
