What are dental implants?
Dental implants are used for replacing either a single or multiple missing teeth in the mouth. The prosthetic works by replicating the tooth’s root by placing the implant close to the bone of the tooth. A successful implant means that the bone will heal onto the implant, creating an artificial tooth root. This is the closest we have come to completely replicating a natural tooth root, and they provide patients with potentially life-long solutions to missing teeth. With a success rate of 97%, Synergy Dental can provide guaranteed and predictable results.
The implants themselves are made using a high-grade metal (grade-4), and they come in the form of small cylinders that are smoothly fitted into the jawbone. As a result, they create a replication of a natural tooth root, once the bone has healed over the implant. They can support crowns, bridges, and even a custom-made denture.
For those patients who are looking to get the most authentic replacement for a gap in a smile, dental implants could be the restorative, long-term treatment needed to rebuild the confidence they deserve.
What happens during surgery?
Prior to having any implants fitted, you will need to either have an x-ray or a CT-scan taken. This will allow your dentist to plan the implant placement as precisely as possible. The choice between using x-ray imaging and CT-scan imaging will depend on factors like surgical complexity, cost, availability, and the patient’s anatomy. If the CT-scan is more appropriate, SMOP software will be used so that the dentist can plan the surgery completely digitally guided.
Your dentist will then prepare for your appointment by wearing correct clothing (hair net, mask, loupes, etc.), thoroughly destabilising, and pre-arranging the implant. This also includes covering the patient with a sterile drape and fully disinfecting the patent’s face before continuing.
The surgery itself only requires a hole to be created where the implant will fit. This is usually done by in initial incision of the area. This will likely be followed by drilling the hole (if bone grafting isn’t necessary before this). The surgeon will work on the hole to ensure it is the correct size and depth before the implant is placed. The implant itself will then need tightening into the hole, have a healing abutment attached to it, and a surgical suture will be created around the abutment.
Once placed, it goes through a process called ‘osseointegration’, which allows the bone in your jaw to grow onto the implant and fuse together. Typically, this whole process takes a few months, and during this period you’ll be booked in for regular visits to monitor the healing progress.
After the healing process is complete, your dentist will call you in to take an impression of your mouth. This will then be sent them off to a laboratory so that a technician can create a personalised bridge or crown to blend in with the rest of your teeth. Your final appointment will consist of having these crowns finally fitted.
What else do I need to know?
Regular hygiene visits will be recommended to you after your treatment has been fulling completed. As an ongoing extension to your treatment, these visits will allow your dentist to closely monitor the implants and make sure they are in the best possible condition for the rest of your life. This will ensure the implant lasts much longer post-treatment.
Are you one of the thousands of patients considering cosmetic, aesthetic, orthodontic or dental implant work? If so, you might be interested in a new service from this very practice – interest-free loans to fund your dental treatment.
An innovative and potentially much more affordable alternative to traditional options, our 0% loans enables you to get the treatment you want – the right treatment – and pay for it over a period that suits you. With no interest charged whatsoever!
Who can benefit?
Just about anyone over the age of 18. You don’t have to belong to a private dental plan. You don’t even have to be a regular visitor at this practice.
What can I use it for?
You can use the loan to pay for most dental work, but it’s particularly suited to more costly private treatments, such as dental implants, orthodontic, aesthetic or cosmetic work. If you’re not sure whether it’s right for your treatment, please ask your dentist.
How much can I borrow?
Typically between £500 and £25,000 depending on the course of the treatment. This will be subject to ‘on-the-spot’ credit check. Most patients’ applications are approved there and then, so you can go ahead and schedule treatment immediately.
How do I repay the loan?
Much like any other loan, you repay it in affordable monthly payments over an agreed term. These payments are collected by Direct Debit.
How much will I pay?
You pay the cost of your treatment – no more and no less. Interest-free means just that!
What are the repayment terms?
Your dentist will be able to go through the various terms with you and agree the most suitable repayment period.
How do I apply?
Once you’ve agreed on a course of treatment – and a cost – with your dentist, we’ll make the credit application on your behalf. As soon as the credit check is complete and the loan process, you’ll receive written confirmation from the credit provider Simpler as that!
Who is the credit provider?
We’re working with one of the most respected credit providers in the business. Ask your dentist for details.
How often can I use the facility?
You can apply for an interest-free loan for each course of treatment, subject to the usual credit check.

For anyone considering using our interest-free loan facility to fund their private dental treatment, the benefits are clear.

Case Study: Same Day Dental Implants
Step One: Consultation
In your initial consultation, you will receive a detailed examination of your mouth, face, and medical and social history. You may also be eligible to have a CT scan taken if required. X-rays are also available for those who wouldn’t need a CT scan. All of this is £20.00 under Synergy’s private band 1.
A final report will be sent across to you within 48 hours. You must approve this before further treatment is carried out.
Step Two: Consent
This stage is very important, as we will always give you the time to consider whether you’re happy to continue with the proposed treatment. We will then book a separate, complimentary appointment with your dentist. This gives you the opportunity to ask any question or make your dentist aware of any concerns you might have.
We are pioneers in digital dentistry. As such, we will plan the surgery using a digital CT scan. This will provide the surgeon with a replica template of your jaw, allowing them to position the implant precisely. This is called ‘digital CT-guided surgery’*.
Step Three: Surgery Date
Assuming you and your dentist have agreed to go-ahead, the surgical appointment will be booked. The surgery may require either local anaesthetic or sedation; this will depend on your dentist’s recommendation and the complexity of the surgery.
Along with a teeth extraction or bone grafting if necessary, the treatment will offer temporary teeth (either dentures or temporary bridges) meaning each patient will have the opportunity to leave their surgical appointment with new teeth.
It will take approximately 3 months for your implants to heal. During this time, your dentist will review you several times in order to monitor the healing process.
Step Four: Permeant teeth construction
Soon after the implants have healed, a special appointment will be booked to discuss refining and constructing your permeant teeth. You will be able to fully customise the final shape, size, and colour of your permeant teeth.
Stage Five: After Care
With the single-biggest reason for implant failure being lack of aftercare, Synergy strives for excellence in this area. You will receive regular 3-month check-ups, involving x-rays, cleaning, and maintenance. This will ensure the longevity of the prosthetic and make sure your mouth is consistently kept healthy.
* We will only use CT-guided surgery if your dentist believes it will help avoid unnecessary trauma during and after surgery.
