Single dental implants

The loss of a tooth could be caused from many different reasons; tooth decay, infection, gum disease, trauma, or removal of an impacted tooth.

A single dental implant is the most functional secure replacement for a missing tooth, allowing you to eat, smile and laugh with confidence.

A single titanium implant is placed into the jaw, as the replacement root. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic.  The implant will need three to six months to heal and integrate with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.

A single dental implant is placed into the jaw, as the replacement root. It's a straightforward process which will be completed under local anaesthetic. The implant will need eight to twelve weeks to achieve integration within your jaw bone and provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.

A temporary crown is not usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement. Instead a healing abutment is placed, this will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.

Once your implant has integrated, an impression will be taken and a bespoke crown commissioned from our dental laboratory. This process usually takes a further two weeks.
