A single tooth dental implant replaces a missing tooth with a similar feel, function and appearance to that of a natural tooth.

What is a single tooth dental implant?

A dental implant is a titanium rod that is fixed into your jawbone. The implant gradually fuses with the bone and acts as a durable, permanent support to which a dental crown can be fixed.

Replacing a missing tooth as soon as possible reduces the risk of additional oral health issues in addition to:

  • Reducing stress on existing teeth when chewing
  • Preventing adjacent teeth shifting or tilting towards the gap
  • Improving eating comfort and dental hygiene
  • Enhancing your smile

What is a dental implant treatment?

As the general health and integrity of the jawbone is a key factor in the success of dental implants, X-rays and scans of your mouth will be taken during your initial consultation.

After reviewing your medical history, your dentist will be able to advise you if a dental implant treatment is right for you.

During the treatment, your dentist will first administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area to be treated. The gum is cut open to expose the jawbone. Your dentist will insert a titanium implant which is then permanently secured into the bone.

Some patients may feel soreness, swelling or sensitivity for a few days after the implant procedure.

What happens after an implant treatment?

After several months, the implant will normally have begun to fuse with the jawbone. This ensures maximum strength, stability and longevity of the insert.

A dental crown will be custom-made to replace the missing tooth. The prosthetic tooth will have a virtually identical size, shape and colour to a natural tooth.

With good tooth and oral care, a dental implant is a long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth.
