Frequently Asked Questions


1. Do you offer free assessments?

No. This is the most critical part of the treatment process and from where most mistakes can be traced. Our assessments consist of 1 hour with a dentist, all the required x-rays, detailed planning, models and surgical guides, together with a written treatment plan, all included in one time consultation fee.

2. Aren’t implants expensive?

Yes. It is a lot to spend on your mouth and it is down to each individual patient to decide if the improvements to quality of life, function and aesthetics are worthwhile. We only ever prescribe treatment that is necessary. If searching for a bargain please keep in mind that we continue to repair many cases from other implant clinics that have gone wrong due to inadequate skills or materials.


3. Do implants ever go wrong?

Any surgical procedure can go wrong. In the unlikely event that an implant fails, we offer the choice of a full refund, or to replace the implant completely free of charge. We have usually found that patients wish to try again and that a second failure is exceptionally rare - not a single one since implant placement started (2002).


4. How many implants do you place at city dental hospital?

In 2008 we placed 200 implants, in 2009 we placed over 300, we now believe that The Implant Centre is the largest centre, in terms of numbers of dental implants placed, of its kind in the Saurashtra Kutch and in the India. This is exceptionally reassuring for both our patients and our referring dentists.


5. How well qualified are you? What is the experience of the dental surgeon?

Our "Specialized Dental Surgery" section gives all the details about our dentists including their qualifications and experience, as well as introducing the skilled and experienced team of nurses and support staff who will take care of you at the centre. Our surgeon went through all Dental Implantology and learnt up-and-coming implant dentists both simple and advanced implant techniques.

We choose the best system for each individual case. The three main implant systems that we use are

1. OSSTEM

2. Nobel Biocare

3. Bio-Horizon

All the system used in CE certified, FDA approved implant system. There are cheaper systems available but they do not have the research, quality, backup and reliability that we require. We are also aware of clinics in the India using copy implants. Just like any other fake goods they rarely live up to expectations and we will NEVER risk our patient’s care, security and the longevity of their results with fake implant components. Always look for reviews and testimonials from real patients to establish the true quality of a dental implant centre at City Dental Hospital Rajkot.
