A single dental implant is a remarkable solution for those with a missing tooth due to injury, decay, or other dental issues.
Although it may not seem significant, even a single missing tooth can lead to more significant issues in the future, affecting speech, eating, and digestion. Our highly skilled team offers a life-changing solution with a single dental implant that closely resembles a natural tooth in appearance, function, and sensation. This restorative treatment not only enhances your smile but also improves your overall oral health.
To begin, we evaluate the condition of the jawbone using either an X-ray or a 3D Bone Scan. Additionally, we take a digital scan of the jaw and existing teeth, which serves as a crucial foundation for the treatment plan.
Next, the dental implant is carefully positioned within the jawbone. Unlike other replacement options like bridges or dentures, this process does not harm any healthy neighboring teeth, ensuring their preservation. In contrast, alternative solutions might necessitate the shaving or grinding down of adjacent teeth.
Once the implant is securely in place, an abutment is attached to it. Following this, a crown is meticulously fitted onto the abutment, aligning perfectly with the gum's edge.
With the final steps completed, your new tooth is fully functional, allowing you to use it just like a natural tooth. Remarkably, it becomes nearly impossible to distinguish the new tooth from your existing ones, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result. At our practice, we take pride in delivering exceptional dental procedures that restore your smile and oral health with precision and care.
My implant looks and feels so natural I don’t even realise it’s there.
