Implant Dentist Recommendation

    Hi there,

    Thread title says it all really. I'm looking for a recommendation for a dentist specialising in implant dentistry in Dublin 2. I have a premolar which has had two root canals and the second one is in the process of failing so I would like it removed and replaced with an implant. Any info regarding total costs incurred would be appreciated also.

    It would be great if someone could PM me a recommendation for Dublin, Meath area please.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,831 ✭✭✭ Fionn1952

    I'm in a similar boat to the OP, expecting to need an implant within the next few months. Open to travel anywhere Dublin/Meath really.

    One thing I'm curious about - I've spotted massive variations in pricing in Ireland, without even considering abroad options (I'm sure many of the dentists abroad are great, but I'd be very fearful of the lack of support if something went wrong). I can understand some variability, based on material branding and dentist experience etc, but I've come across pricing from €1250 to over three times that for an implant, abutement and crown.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,215 ✭✭✭ khalessi

    got quoted 2500 per implant too expensive for me sadly

  • Registered Users Posts: 3 niftthelean

    Same question for me - can anybody make a recommendation for dental implants in
    Limerick area. Think I'd prefer to stay local. Please PM if you can recommend.

    Can someone make a recommendation for me in the Dublin or Mayo regions?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,211 ✭✭✭ LineOfBeauty

    In the same boat and ideally around the same area (Dublin 2) it's the pre molars that are the issue. Any PM would be great.

  • Registered Users Posts: 398 ✭✭ doireann08

    I am in the same boat, need an implant also. Can someone recommend a good dentist in Dublin and idea of likely cost. I am thinking about going abroad as it seems so expensive here. Please pm me . Thanks for your help

  • Registered Users Posts: 20 sandman1212

    Same here. Was told I needed 5 implants and I’m looking at my options. Could you recommend by PM someone in South Dublin please?

    I'm in the same boat too. A premolar is giving me problems. It fractured last year and it was saved with a filling. The tooth cracked on me. It's not a big crack but I feel a sharp edge. It's more annoying if anything. I have an appointment at the dentist for tomorrow and I'm dreading it. I don't know what tomorrow will bring. Hopefully the dentist will be able to save it, maybe with a filling, I don't know. I will see how tomorrow goes and will take it from there. I think I might need to look into getting an implant.

    I was checking on prices online. A dentist local to be has a price online for 1700 euro. I suppose to some degree, it's ok money because I saw other prices for over 2000. I don't have 1500 lying about nevermind 1700 or more and I don't have health insurance.

    I was looking at <snip> website online. They have a clinic in Dublin and Limerick. I like how they have a payment option. Has anybody used 3dental before? Or any other recommendations?

  • Registered Users Posts: 138 ✭✭ elgicko


    Based in cherrywood, Dublin just off M50. Have used them for braces, fillings, root canals, crowns and whitening. Can't fault them.

    All young dentists, who specialise in a particular area, for example one doctor will just do root canals. I'm getting 2 crowns finished off at the min, being done by a cosmetic dentist, she is very thorough, perfectionist. I am very happy with the results so far.

    Prices are upfront, and very competitive, they give you a dental plan at the start and you only pay for what you get done. They also do payment plans.

    Front of desk staff very nice. Sort out appointments that suit you and help with MED 2 forms where required.

    Only fault I have is it a bit of a pain to get to during rush hour as I am on Northside. Worth it though for the savings and quality of service

    No affiliation at all, honest review.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭ spaceHopper

    I've a canine implant all in it was about 3 grand it's done in two stages a sergon put in a titanium post and a prostodentist did the crown very happy with it got it done in a clinic in Booterstown.

    You get what you pay for it took 4 visits over six months. I don't understand how clinics in Asia or Eastern Europe can do it in two weeks.

    If at all possible I'd look at getting a pro root canal and crown to save the orgional tooth. I just had one done in Renelagh and it cost 750 for the root canal going back in six months for the crown should be 800 ish.

    If you have to go to the credit union and borrow. Never let a general dentist do a root canal it's complicated fiffly work and badly you will be in aganony and paring to have it fi, ed

  • Registered Users Posts: 71 ✭✭ johntreacy

    Would you recommend the place in Ranelagh over Booterstown

  • Registered Users Posts: 121 ✭✭ j2dab

    Hi, if someone could pm me a recommendation for implants I would appreciate it. Many thanks.

  • Registered Users Posts: 52 ✭✭ tele2020

    Affordable recommendations for Meath/Louth?

    Can prices be negotiated, cash in hand, no VAT etc?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,592 ✭✭✭ tommycahir

    I recently got the implant part placed using dental implants ireland in Dundrum, €1249 and can claim 205 back on med2 and 10% discount if you pay up front. They do free consult and will need a opg scan/ct scan for €150 to determine suitability.

    due back tomorrow for stitch removal and then in 3 months for the check up to confirm implant is doing ok.. total time from start to finish will be about 6 months with all appointment costs covered in the price

  • Registered Users Posts: 139 ✭✭ sheriff2

    Just got a price from Smiles

    €71 for consult

    €1900 per tooth (only need 1)

    €300 / €400 for temp denture

    How did you get on, would you recommend

  • Registered Users Posts: 139 ✭✭ sheriff2

    Has anyone recommendations, the older posts on the thread show <snip> where the snip is now removed

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,592 ✭✭✭ tommycahir

    Apologies ment to reply sooner, I had a 3month checkup on the implant last Friday and the implant seems to be bonding well so they are going to put the healing cap on at the end of August.

    Everything has been going great with them so far anyway, i've had to reschedule things a few times due to work etc and there was never an issue.

    AHHH I see where I went wrong, I took your recommendation and ended up at Dundrum Dental, was surprised that a dentist within a lovely building in a lovely village could offer such good rate... they couldnt!

    3k per implant!!!!

    So Dundrum dental clinic is not dental implants Ireland.

    Ha. otherwise, glad to hear your implant has been a success

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,592 ✭✭✭ tommycahir

    From my pricing them around 3k for the implant, abutment and crown is still very very good, I was generally getting 4-5k for total package.

    Dental Implants Ireland also provide their general dentistry service under the name Happy Dental.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7 xemon2000

    I just got a quote of 4,500 per implant. Just remember the implant cost does not include initial consultation, x-ray, CT Scan if needed, endodontic exam, periodontal exam, possible extraction if there is anything remaining below the surface, and if you have any gum issues, you'll have to have that addressed first, which will be a hygienist.

    I've been trying to explore going abroad, and have been looking at Kreativ dental and Helvetic Dental in Budapest, Sofia Implant Center in Bulgaria. For all the people who seem to have travelled, I cannot find any who can tell first hand of their experience.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13 saoirse81

    Have a serious think about how vulnerable if things go wrong in another country. We have first hand experience of Kreativ. The warranty means nothing, just a pile of excuses when over €10,000 of work goes terribly wrong.

  • Registered Users Posts: 155 ✭✭ OO7FITZY

    just catching up on this interesting thread

    have used metal dentures for 30 years and the one I have now is probably in need of replacement

    does anyone know if it is possible to have implants fitted so long after teeth have been removed?

    I would need to have incisors x 2 replaced

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,019 ✭✭✭✭ recode the site

    My own single implant was done by Dr< snip> (Basque guy-American father) found him excellent, and he has a relaxed manner. The particular tooth was small and tricky. He currently works in <snip> at Red Cow
