Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complementary preliminary consultation with Dr van der Bijl. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 15 minutes. The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants. The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website. Please use the button in the right hand column to request an appointment.
Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation. This includes a comprehensive oral examination, and results in production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment. The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is £50.

"My first thought was it was going to be a painful process but even though I had to have a bone graft from another area of the mouth before the implant could be inserted it was all relatively painless. Being the front tooth I was very conscious that it had to look completely natural and so to that end Susan made sure I was completely happy with the result. It was certainly worth every penny and I just want to thank Susan for the wonderful job she did."
"I am writing to thank you so much for the very professional job done in fitting my dental implant. I expected to experience some pain and discomfort but was pleasantly surprised. Following the loss of a tooth near the front of my mouth and subsequently wearing a denture which I could not get on with, I feel like I have my life back again since having the dental implant and crown fitted. It is very comfortable and feels like one of my own teeth. I would thoroughly recommend this procedure to anyone."
The practice provides computer guided surgery and ExpertEase for selected cases. Oral and intravenous sedation can be arranged.
