The different types of dental implants

The need for dental implants is very common, with millions of people in the UK benefitting from this treatment every year. Dental implants provide stability for replacement teeth and help maintain surrounding bone. This ultimately results the implant and the bone integrating together – a process called osseointegration. There are different types of teeth implants:

  • Singular tooth implants – a single tooth implant is used to replace one missing tooth. A titanium screw is placed in the jawbone as a replacement for that tooth’s root. A false tooth crown is then fixed to this implant, retained by either bonding or preferably a screw-retained crown.
  • Multiple dental implants – if there are multiple missing teeth adjacent to each other they can be replaced with more than one dental implant connected by a bridge, typically two implants and three to four teeth in one bridge.
  • Implant-supported bridges – again, if there are multiple missing teeth, a dental implant-supported bridge contains multiple prosthetic teeth, attached to a bridge, creating an arch of teeth implants
  • Implant-retained dentures – held in place by dental implants screwed into the jawbone, implant-retained dentures function better than normal dentures, as they are more stable, although there will still be an element of movement.
  • Smile-in-a-day dental implants (also known as all-on-4, same day smile and full jaw dental implants) – as a long-lasting dental solution replacing loose, rotten and missing teeth (and for those already with un-fixed dentures), these dental implants are placed into the jaw, providing a full set of functioning teeth, in just one day

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies depending on what your requirements are:

  • Single tooth implants – averages between £1.5k and £3.6k per implant
  • Multiple dental implants – these would be costed based on single tooth implants, with a discount for requesting more than one single implant
  • Implant-supported bridges range between £4,000 and £12,000, depending on span and practice attended.
  • Implant-retained dentures – averages between £10,000 and £16,000 for a full mouth
  • All-on-four/Smile-in-a-day dental implants range between £20,000 and £35,000 for a full mouth, with single jaws starting around £11,000.
  • The EvoSolution™ Smile-in-a-day, which is an advanced alternative to All-on-four/Smile-in-a-day implants, allowing us to treat almost any patient regardless of bone level or gum disease, is between £9,900 and £28,000, depending on the number of jaws necessary and the type of bridge, following a detailed consultation

When considering the best dental implants for you, the EvoSolution™ has a fully transparent, competitive pricing strategy, which is tailored to you and your needs. We’re proud to say we offer some of the most affordable dental implants, our pricing starts at £9,900 for one jaw and up to £28,000 for both jaws – figures will be provided to you following your 90-minute free consultation.

We provide you with a new smile in a day

Our dental implants treatment helps our patients to get back a healthy, functional smile. We don’t provide temporary dentures – instead, we design, mill and place a completely unique and bespoke screw-retained prosthetic made just for you.

Our unique clinic set up and in-house labs allows us to perform the treatment, design your prosthetic and fit it all in one day, meaning you can leave with a brand new ‘smile-in-a-day’.

Take a look at our patient timeline


You'll arrive at our clinic at around 8am, where you'll be shown to your very own private dental suite. This is just for you, and we'll take every step to make you comfortable. After this you'll enter a treatment room where, under sedation and pain-free, a clinician will extract any remaining teeth and place your implants. This only takes around 2 hours per jaw.


After your treatment, you'll be taken back to your private patient suite to relax and recover. During this time, your clinician and our lab team will be producing your unique initial prosthetic in our on-site dental lab.

Late afternoon

Later on that afternoon, you'll return to the treatment room to have your new prosthetic fitted. You'll later leave with your first set of brand new fixed teeth. Over the next few weeks you'll be able to get used to your new smile, later returning for your final set.

The benefits of dental implants

There are numerous benefits to having dental implants. If you only require a single tooth implant, it can be blended into the rest of your teeth and no-one would ever know. If having multi-sectional dental implants, you can also expect these to mirror your existing teeth, whilst providing you with increased confidence, as well as function.

When undergoing our smile-in-a-day EvoSolution™, you can expect the following benefits:

  • A solution that can change your life – giving you the confidence to not only smile, but to eat what you want, when you want
  • A full jaw fixed solution helping you to regain ‘real teeth’ function and a natural face shape – once bone has been simulated – improving facial aesthetics
  • Accurate tooth simulation and comfortable feel, as though they were your real teeth.
  • A completely bespoke solution designed, manufactured and implanted at one on-site laboratories in our UK clinics.
  • A team of highly experienced and specialised technical engineers, clinicians, lab technicians, nurse practitioners, patient co-ordinators and receptionists – ensuring the highly quality service at all times

What happens on the day of the surgery?

Decided to go ahead with our smile-in-a-day dental implants? You’ve made the right choice! At EvoDental, surgery day is made as comfortable as possible for you. Accessing one of our four treatment clinics – in Heathrow, Solihull, Leeds or Liverpool – first thing in the morning, you will be taken to your own private patient suite and settled in – you’re very welcome to bring along a partner or friend to stay with you for the day. One of our nurses will be on hand to answer any queries that you may have.

Shortly after, you will have any remaining teeth extracted and the dental implants will be placed. This will be done via local anaesthetic and sedation – we have several sedation options that will be discussed with you prior to your surgery. We will then perform bite calculation and take any impressions, which will be sent over to our on-site laboratory, where your bespoke prosthesis will be manufactured – on the same day, whilst you wait in your private patient suite.

Later that same day, you will then have your smile-in-a-day dental implants placed. These will remain in your mouth for a few weeks before you return to the clinic to have your final prosthesis fitted. This allows time for the implants to fully integrate with your mouth and heal.

Dental Implants FAQ’s

Is anaesthetic used for removal of existing teeth and the placing of tooth implants?

General anaesthetic isn’t used when you have your teeth removed and the dental implants fitted, but local anaesthetic is. However, if you are nervous, you can also opt for sedation. We offer two types of sedation:

  • Oral sedation – this is dissolved in water and taken just before surgery. It can be used in conjunction with local anaesthetic
  • Intravenous sedation – this is given via a needle in the arm and again, is used with local anaesthetic

No matter the option you choose, you will still be able to communicate with the clinicians, ensuring the precision implant placement takes place effectively.

Can I get just one tooth implant with Evo?

No. Evo only carry out full jaw (top, bottom or both jaws) dental implant solutions. Providing smile-in-a-day dental implants day in and day out, means EvoDental are highly specialised in this procedure (EvoSolution™). All four of our clinics – in Harley Street, Heathrow, Solihull and Liverpool – are set up with everything our experts need to deliver an exceptional, customer-focused service.

Do I have to have a temporary set of dentures when I’ve had my teeth removed and before I have dental implants?

No, we will never provide you with a temporary set of dentures. We will initially fit your bespoke prosthesis, which you will keep in for approximately 12 weeks, giving the dental implants time to fully heal. After this, you will return to our clinic, where you will have the final, bespoke prosthesis fitted.

Will you tell me I’m a suitable candidate for teeth implants on the day of the consultation?

Yes, we will. Once we have taken the cone beam CT scans and your medical history, we will make an informed decision on whether we are able to proceed with full jaw dental implants. We deem most people suitable but in the unlikely event you are not, we will utilise our expert knowledge to recommend other treatment options for you.
