If you have lost one tooth and want a permanent, sturdy solution, a single tooth implant is ideal.
Titanium is used by dentists as this metal bonds extremely well with the jawbone – meaning the implant becomes fully incorporated into the mouth’s system.
This means that your single tooth implant will be firmly held in place so you don’t have to worry about it slipping out of place or coming loose.
A single tooth implant can be used anywhere in the mouth and will be created to colour match your natural teeth.
Before you start dental implant treatment, we need to ensure your jawbone is of good quality and will hold the titanium screw. We may need to take x-rays or refer you for a CT scan.
If you are suitable for an implant, we will take impressions of your teeth to create the right size and shaped prosthetic tooth.
An incision will be made in your gum at the site of the gap and the titanium screw will be embedded into your jawbone. You may need a stitch to ensure the wound heals properly.
It may take a while for the screw to become fully embedded into the jaw, so you will be fitted with a temporary false tooth while you heal. Once this has happened, we will attach your permanent replacement tooth.
