Treatment Planning Appointment - This is a 30 - 45 minutes clinical appointment where a full clinical exam is carried out, which includes:

  • Detailed questioning on requirements and the current problems being experienced
  • Oral cancer screen
  • Detailed examination of remaining dentition, periodontal condition and occlusal analysis
  • Impressions of upper and lower jaws with facebow record where appropriate
  • Detailed series of clinical photographs
  • Detailed periapical radiographs where required
  • OPT radiograph where required

Note: If an additional special investigation such as a CT scan is required this is carried out as a separate appointment.

The treatment planning fee is £295.00 (this includes a follow up appointment to discuss any issues raised, if necessary the plan will be refined and resent.

Note: for treatment such as root canal therapy or minor oral surgery procedures a treatment planning appointment is usually not necessary.

Financial Investment

We do not expect anybody to commit to treatment unless until they are fully aware of the costs involved. We know that most people have to carefully budget for extensive treatment plans and any increase during treatment might be prohibitive.

Once we have quoted for treatment, and a consent form has been signed, we will do everything in our power to keep to the cost quoted.

The most significant financial investment is usually attributed to dental implant treatment. There are two major costs involved with implant treatment:

  1. Surgical costs - which include surgical planning, the implant component costs and surgical placement by the implant surgeon and his team.


  2. Restorative costs - which include the final prosthesis, associated component and laboratory costs together with the planning and any provisional (temporary) restorations required.

Dental Implant treatment requires more financial investment than most dental treatment and this is one of the most important factors in deciding on which type of implant supported restoration to proceed with. There are many factors, which dictate the need for individual quotations rather than selection from a price list:

  • The number of implants needed can be different for similar restorative cases.
  • The final restorative requirements may be different for similar situations eg emphasis on appearance or function.
  • The final cost can be "tailored" to some extent depending on the desired final result e.g. fixed or removable, porcelain or resin.
  • Additional work may be required to stabilise any remaining teeth prior to implant treatment.

As a result absolute costs cannot be quoted until a full diagnosis is established encompassing all the potential variables and combining them with the given criteria. In this way we can present a complete treatment plan of all the available options and costs.
