A single tooth dental implant is a great tooth replacement that looks and feels just like your natural teeth, repairing the full function of your chewing and smiling. It is suitable for patients with a strong jawbone who have one or multiple missing teeth. Single tooth dental implants are designed to efficiently replace a tooth and may last for many years with proper oral care and hygiene.
If you are suitable for the treatment, your dental surgeon will embed a titanium screw into your jawbone. It functions as a ‘root’ to your tooth replacement and will securely hold the implant. Once your gum and jawbone are healed, you will have a follow-up appointment to attach the bespoke implant to the ‘root’, and you will be able to enjoy your new smile.
Depending on your treatment plan and case, there may be 3-4 appointments within 3-5 months. The healing process may take 3-6 months, after which your implant should function just like a real tooth.
