Single and Multiple Dental Implants

Single Tooth Dental Implant

A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth. By substituting the root of the missing tooth, it prevents further serious complications that can arise if the missing tooth is left untreated. It usually requires multiple appointments to complete.

  • First, your mouth is prepared for placing the implant.
  • Next, the implant body is placed into the bone (to act as the root), along with a special healing cap. The area is then given time to heal (anywhere up to 3 months normally).
  • Your implant surgeon will monitor the healing process, we can provide a temporary tooth made on the day to fill the empty space.
  • When the area is fully healed, the healing cap is removed and replaced with the ‘abutment’, which serves as the base of your new tooth.
  • Finally, your new crown (the top of the tooth) is placed over the abutment and cemented into place.
  • Your tooth is now restored to optimal shape and function.

benefits of dental implants

If you’re thinking about dental implants, or your dentist has advised you that you should consider them, the chances are you may have some questions. Are they the best option for you? Are dental implants expensive? Can you have them? Will your dental implants look natural?

To help answer these questions and give you a little more information, we’ve put together a list of what we think are the top benefits of dental implants:

LOOKS NATURAL

Once a dental implant is fitted with its bespoke tooth, the result will look completely natural. The tooth will sit flush to your gum so no-one will be able to spot the difference.

COST EFFECTIVE

If you consider the life-time costs of dental implants compared to the costs of other restorations that may need to be replaced regularly, they are surprisingly cost effective. Once your mouth is healthy and your implants successfully placed, we can help you concentrate on preventing any future problems.

PREVENT BONE LOSS

When you lose a tooth, you begin to lose bone mass around the missing tooth site because there is no longer a root there to encourage strengthening of the bone. Placing a dental implant in your jaw bone stimulates new bone growth through a process called ‘osseointegration’. This can help to prevent future bone loss.

FACIAL STRUCTURE

Bone loss from tooth loss can give people with missing teeth a sunken, aged appearance around the mouth that goes on to impact the structure of the whole face. By helping to keep your jaw bones strong, dentalx implants can help to preserve your facial structure.

STRENGTH AND FUNCTION

Dental implants behave like natural teeth, providing strength and function, because they are anchored firmly in your jaw bone, they give the tooth stability.
