We can give advice on alternative methods of treatment, such as funding the treatment yourself.

What is a dental implant?

ScrewA dental implant is a titanium screw, that can be used to replace the root of a missing tooth. Dental implants can also be used to secure dentures and bridges.

Dental implant treatment has been carried out at the University Dental Hospital of Manchester since the early 1980s. Since then the service has continued to grow and today there is a large team of multi-disciplinary experts on hand to provide this service.

 

Can anyone have dental implant treatment at the Dental Hospital of Manchester?

If you and our dental implant team agree that this options suitable for you, it is necessary for us to apply to your Local Commissioning Group, asking for funding for your treatment. You will meet our Dental Implant team, who will explain this process to you.

We can only apply for implant funding if the patient meets the criteria set down by your Local Commissioning Group. Not all patients are treated as they do not meet the funding criteria. On these occasions we can give advice on alternative methods of treatment.

Implant treatment must be deemed as the most appropriate form of treatment and that all other reasonable conventional treatments have been tried, or are not feasible or appropriate. We advise that patients wishing to be considered for dental implant treatment speak to their dentist in the first instance.
