Single-Tooth Dental Implants

A single-tooth dental implant is a relatively simple surgical procedure for the replacement of a missing tooth.

A dental implant is the most authentic looking and feeling tooth replacement option currently available.

A dental implant is a small titanium screw inserted into your jawbone. Over time, the screw fuses with the bone in your jaw, anchoring it in place.

What should I expect if I choose a dental implant?

First, you will undergo a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, and jaw, including intraoral scans and x-rays.

Then your dentist will administer a local anaesthetic to the treatment area and place the implant into your jawbone. They may fit a temporary crown and leave the implant in place to heal, which typically takes around 3-6 months.

Once your dentist is satisfied that your implant has healed and is sufficiently secure, they will remove your temporary crown and replace it with a permanent one.

How should I look after my new tooth?

There is no specific maintenance required for an implant. Simply keep up a good standard of oral hygiene to improve its lifespan.

Can everyone have dental implants?

When we lose a tooth, we also begin to lose bone tissue from the surrounding area. If the tooth is replaced promptly, bone loss can be prevented or even reversed.

If a longer period of time has elapsed, you may have already lost too much bone to make an implant a viable option. You might choose an alternative replacement like a partial denture or a bridge, or you could undergo a bone graft procedure.

Please call us on 01925 266 488 and schedule a consultation to discuss your dental implant options.
