If you’re about to lose a tooth, or have recently lost teeth (through injury or decay, for example), you may benefit from immediate dental implants. Visit our Clinic for an initial consultation.

How does single tooth implant work?

A fully restored tooth is made up of several parts:

  • The implant – a titanium screw placed in the jawbone, which gradually integrates with the bone to function as a new tooth root.
  • The abutment – is made of titanium, porcelain, or gold in the shape of a small worn down tooth. This part screws on to the implant and acts as a base for the crown.
  • The crown – is the replacement tooth, usually made of porcelain or metal. It’s bonded or screwed onto the abutment.

What does the treatment involve?

Our dentist will determine your course of treatment at your initial consultation. There must be enough bone in your jaw to provide support for the implant. If you have thin or soft bone, you may first need a bone graft to strengthen your jawbone.

Once the implant is ready to be placed, your dentist will dry a tiny hole in your jaw. The implant is fitted and covered with gum tissue and a protective cover screw. After your mouth has healed (usually around six months later), your dentist will uncover the implant and fix the abutment on top. A temporary crown will then be fitted, allowing the gum to shape itself around the tooth naturally. When ready, your permanent crown will be placed.

rating star iconI have heard about implants as a way of replacing missing teeth, and as I had several gaps in the front of my mouth I decided to go and see what Dental Implants London could do for me. I thought that dental implants would be too expensive but I was pleasantly surprised that the cost and I’m now undergoing treatment.
