Single tooth dental implants can be used to replace a missing tooth or a tooth that is in need of extraction. More stable and secure than other restoration options, single tooth dental implants offer the ultimate in comfort and are the most natural-looking replacement option for patients.
How do single tooth dental implants work?
Like other dental implants, single tooth dental implants are made up of a titanium screw or peg that is inserted into the jawbone, and a prosthetic tooth that is attached on top of it. The titanium screw acts as the new root for the tooth, keeping it in place and looking and acting just as a natural tooth does.
The treatment journey for a single tooth dental implant usually lasts for a few months, and you’ll come into the practice for several appointments. It is a fairly long process, and performing the treatment requires great skill, dexterity, and training on the part of the specialist dentist, but patients always agree that it’s worth it. Luckily, our team here at Diamond Dental Care includes highly skilled dentists who are able to perform these treatments in practice, meaning you’ll be comfortable and well taken care of by a team you trust throughout.
Implants aren’t suitable for all patients – there must be enough healthy jawbone present to safely accept the implant – but we can establish this during a consultation. We’ll probably do this via an X-ray, or in some cases a CT scan. With our OPG machine, we’re able to perform X-rays of the entire mouth without the use of uncomfortable bitewings, meaning you’ll be comfortable from the first step in your implant journey with us.
