I Have Amelogenesis Imperfecta. Could I Get Implants on the NHS?

Both my son and I have amelogenesis imperfecta. Is it at all possible do you know, to have dental implants through our NHS please?
Thank you.

Hello.This is a difficult one.
I assume you have a dentist who looks after you both?
I assume you have missing teeth?
It is very very difficult to get implants on the NHS. Definitely not in an ordinary dental practice.
For example, the Eastman Dental Hospital takes people in extreme circumstances who have congenitally missing teeth (not amelogenesis imperfecta). You could ask your dentist to refer you to a dental hospital, but I think the likelihood of a successful referral is extremely low. Kind regards, Jenny.
