Implants - FAQs

I'm really nervous about having dental implants.

The real experience is much less uncomfortable than the rumor. We offer analgesia when treatment is carrying out, and the healing period is usually quite comfortable. We apply sedation techniques for extrem nervous patients.You could contact with our patients who have treatment at APA Dental Centre for more information and real story about the experience. It’s much easier than you imagine.


Can I pay for the treatment in instalments?

Yes. Patients are required to pay in advance a sum of money before each phase of treatment. The implant placement phase is completed first, then the subsequent phases will be carried out in the next two to eight months depending on the procedures involved.


What happens if an implant fails?

Most implants fail in the first year. If the implants fail during the first 12 months even under detailed instructions correctly, we would undertake to replace the failed implant and component for free, and we would charge a small amount of services fee, about 30% of the original fee. You would be charged full fee of treatment, repairing or recover unless you registered to our Implant Maintenance Plan.


Can I get insurance against this happening?

Yes, we offer insurance but for only implants which are accepted by company’s insurance. Please contact our dentists for more information.

In addition, we also offer our Implant Maintenance Plan to take care of most implant problems after treatments.


I am not a patient of your practice. Do you accept referral patients?

We have accepted referral patients from many other local dentists. We would be happy to welcome you to our dental implant treatment and we would liaise with your previous dentists to get your dental records.


I've heard about same-day implants. Can I have the new teeth straight away?

In some case, you can. We will assess your specific requirements and consider it carefully to give you the most suitable advice.


I'm losing my teeth through gum disease. Can I still have dental implants?

In most cases, you can. Gum disease damages and makes the jawbone gone. Implants will stop this process. Obviously you need to keep your oral hygiene in good condition to maintain your implants stay healthy. 

During the treatment, will I be without teeth?

You do not have to have all your teeth removed. We make sure that in the interim healing period, you would have a new comfortable and good looking temporary teeth.
