Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complementary preliminary consultation with Dr Sanders. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 20 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 £98, including a small x-ray. The cost of the treatment planning consultation is refunded when you proceed with treatment.

My implant teeth
I cannot tell the difference between my dental implants and my natural teeth
"One of my lower left rear teeth had to be removed due to an abscess. I managed with a gap for thirty years, although the opposing tooth became slightly erupted.
I then lost the adjacent tooth due to a root fracture. With a two teeth gap on the lower left, I would no longer be able to eat using that side of my mouth. I didn’t want to wear a denture. A bridge would have damaged the adjacent healthy teeth.
I had two implants placed by Dr Peter Sanders of Dental Confidence in Southampton. The procedure was fairly quick and only slight uncomfortable, not really painful at all.
A two teeth bridge was fitted on top of the implants three months later. I can now eat completely normally on both sides of my mouth. I have to think back carefully to remember which ones are the implants and which are my natural teeth."
Brian Williams, Marlborough, Wiltshire
"I always like to look my best, but - before having implants- my teeth would let me down. I’d had tried bridges, but after several gum problems, it had got to the point that I only had four good teeth remaining. I went to Dental Confidence to discuss having a full set of implants -and I am so glad I did. They have changed the whole way I feel about myself.
As soon as the implants were placed, I felt liberated and confident. Now, people have no idea I have implants, they just assume I have good teeth."
"I had a single tooth implant with a retained crown fitted. Dr Sanders talked me through the whole procedure - I felt instantly relieved and completely comfortable in the surgery and with the team who were really friendly.
Throughout the actual procedure, I can honestly say that I actually felt no pain or discomfort whatsoever.
Now I can eat normal food without any fear of biting down. I also had my photo taken recently and felt completely confident smiling- you wouldn’t know to look at my teeth that I had an implant. It fits in perfectly.
I’m more than happy- I’m over the moon. I would without a doubt recommend Dental Confidence 100%.”
“After having had a root canal tooth removed, I was faced with the dilemma of whether to leave the area toothless - or alternatively have an implant inserted; I opted for an implant.
I was under the impression that the implant surgery may be slightly painful, but I genuinely didn’t feel a thing throughout the operation. I didn’t need a single pain killer at any time directly after the operation. The actual operation is quite straightforward and isn't so daunting as it may sound.”
