Single Tooth Implant

Everything you need to know about single tooth implants

A missing tooth can give you trouble when you’re chewing, eating, can affect your facial structure and can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. If you’re looking for a solution for your missing tooth, look no further than single tooth implants.

While the main reason people replace missing teeth is usually aesthetic, there are serious implications that a single missing tooth can have on your bones and facial structure. Our teeth play an important role in stimulating bone growth, and when one is missing, the jaw bone beneath the space where your tooth once was begins to deteriorate. This can eventually lead to bite problems and potential infection.

Luckily, single tooth implants are an effective and very popular solution for replacing teeth and restoring your smile to its natural state.

More about the single tooth replacement procedure

Replacing a single tooth is a minimally invasive procedure that is done under local anaesthetic or sedation. Metal frames or posts are surgically implanted through your gums into the jawbone and, over time, fuse with the bone like your original tooth would’ve been. A dental crown is then attached to the metal implant to replace the tooth.

At CARE Implants, we can provide immediate single tooth implant surgery and may fit crowns on the same day because we have the state of the art facilities all under one roof. However, if you have a medical condition, such as diabetes or have undertaken cancer therapy, we recommend waiting between 3 and 6 months after your implant surgery to have the permanent crown fitted.

Single dental implant costs

Every single tooth implant surgery is unique and varies from person to person. As do the costs of a single dental implant procedure. While our team uses only the highest quality materials and equipment, we are committed to keeping our procedures affordable for our patients.

As the majority of our implant patients are usually those looking to have multiple or all their teeth replaced, our team is deeply experienced and we have all the latest dental implant equipment. This allows us to provide our patients with straightforward fees. In addition to our single tooth implant costs, we also have a comprehensive guarantee in place to safeguard your dental implant treatment.

Looking after your single tooth implant

After your single tooth replacement procedure, it is very important to maintain your dental hygiene to prevent a condition similar to gum disease to set in. Remember to regularly brush your teeth, floss and attend check-ups with your dentist and oral hygienist — as you would look after your natural teeth.
