Are you missing a Single Tooth?

Losing a tooth can be devastating. You can feel self-conscious and suffer a lack of self-esteem. Did you know that your tooth could be replaced quickly and easily with a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that integrates perfectly into your gum tissue, just where the root of your tooth would sit. Here's how it works:

  1. The screw will be surgically placed directly into your jaw by your dentist. Its shape and material are optimal for close contact and ultimately fusion with bone, providing maximum stability later on.
  2. Depending on the condition of your mouth and jawbone, the implant 'abutment' (the crown or bridge that fits onto the screw) may be added immediately after the screw is inserted, or sometimes it may be added at a later date. It will blend in perfectly with your natural teeth in colour and shape.
  3. Either way, there will be some healing time. The screw will slowly mesh with the bone, becoming a natural component of your jaw.

Your implant will look and feel exactly like a normal tooth: no one will ever know, and even you might forget! You will still be able to bite and chew normally, and the bone in your jaw will remain intact over time.

Life Benefits
  • A beautiful, natural smile that is all your own.
  • The reassuring knowledge that your implant will last you a lifetime if properly cared for.
  • Full function restored, which means freedom for you.
  • Bone density will be maintained and so will the integral structure of your face.

DB was missing his front tooth following trauma and was wearing a denture. he was keen to have a fixed restoration for the gap. An implant was placed with a ceramic crown attached.

MB had previously had his upper front tooth extracted and was keen to have it replaced with a fixed implant restoration. Due to a lack of bone volume, it was necessary to carry out a bone graft procedure to increase the bulk of bone. A single implant was then placed and restored with a crown alongside the adjacent front tooth.

The bone graft was carried out and left for 4-5 months before placement of the implant. Following another 3 months for integration of the implant, the final crowns were made and bonded in place.
