can you get dental implants on nhs and why do they cost so much?

NHS: My sister in law had the restorative paid for by the nhs but the implants she paid for out of pocket. It may be on a case by case basis so have your dentist check for you. Implants are expensive because of the cost of the education, materials and equipment needed to place them correctly. Labs charge more for restorations as the implant cases require more time and effort. Pts love the results.
