At Thurmaston Dental, Facial, & Implants, we advise patients to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible.
Replacing a tooth with an implant can be a great solution to reduce the risks of dental health issues in addition to:
A single tooth implant procedure consists of a titanium implant that is permanently fixed into your jawbone.
The new implant then acts as a replacement tooth root. After the treatment, the implant gradually fuses with the jawbone and becomes permanent support for a dental crown. A single tooth implant looks, functions and feels like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are a proven and effective treatment to permanently replace missing teeth. During your dental examination, your dentist will take X-rays and scans of your mouth and teeth. We will also review your medical history to establish if a dental implant is right for you. The health and integrity of your jawbone generally determine the suitability of implant treatment.
During the treatment, a local anaesthetic is administered to numb the area to be treated, making the treatment as comfortable as possible. An incision is made in the gum to expose a small section of bone, to which our dentist will then permanently fix the insert. A temporary crown is usually then fitted onto the insert.
Following a dental implant procedure, some patients may feel some temporary soreness, swelling or sensitivity for a few days. We advise patients to avoid chewing or eating hard food for around two weeks after the treatment.
When the insert is solidified, a dental crown is custom-made to match your existing natural teeth in shape and appearance. The crown is then permanently bonded to the top of the dental insert for a long-lasting, seamless and healthy smile.
A single tooth implant is the gold-standard dental solution to replace missing teeth.
