As the home of cosmetic and implant dentistry, at Ringway Dental we provide our patients with a range of implant options, including single tooth dental implants
Single tooth dental implants are used to replace a single missing tooth, or a tooth that requires extraction. They work by using a metal screw made of titanium to replace the root of the tooth, on top of which a porcelain crown is attached.
We often recommend single tooth dental implants to patients with a missing tooth, or a tooth that is in need of extraction. This could be due to decay, injury, or damage that is beyond repair or restoration. We always advise replacing a missing tooth where possible because we know the difficulties it can cause when it comes to everyday tasks like eating and talking. Choosing a single tooth dental implant can improve your confidence massively.
As well as hindering your speech and your ability to eat properly, ignoring just one missing tooth can also lead to further damage to your oral health. This could include the realignment of the remaining teeth, food and debris getting lodged leading to further decay, and the greater likelihood of bone loss in the jaw.
The process of getting a single tooth dental implant is usually carried out over two or more appointments and can take a few months. This is because once we have placed the implant in the jaw, it is important for us to allow time for the jawbone and the implant to fuse together. In the meantime, we can place a temporary tooth where your new crown will eventually be.
