Single Tooth Implant
You may have lost a single tooth as a result of an accident or injury. This can be replaced with an implant . A single tooth implant does not affect your other teeth, looks better and is easy to keep clean. It is kept clean in exactly the same way as your other teeth. Single tooth implants can be carried out on both front and back teeth.

Conventional Dental Implants


1st Stage The dentist will make a tiny incision in your gum in order to access your jawbone. He or she will then drill a small hole in this bone before inserting the implant. The incision is closed and given time to heal. This is usually a period of 3 to 6 months. After the healing period, the gum is again lifted and a post is attached to the implant with a temporary crown. .

2nd Stage When the surrounding gum tissue has matured, the final permanent restoration can be fitted to the implant. The dentist will open up the original wound before fixing a small attachment or abutment to the implant. This will enable him/her to fasten an artificial tooth or restoration to the abutment. This will enable him/her to fasten an artificial tooth or restoration to the abutment.

This is usually done in two stages although there is the option of having this done all in one go, known as ‘immediate loading’.

Multiple Implants
If you are missing quite a few teeth then you could be looking at extensive dental work. This type of treatment will involve implants but will also include bone/sinus grafts and quite possibly some major reconstructive work.

There are several different ways of performing this treatment although they all involve attaching crowns or a bridge onto an implant.

This procedure involves several stages which start with the initial diagnosis, x-ray and wax impression of the patient’s jaw. Once this has been completed then the next stage is that of the insertion of the implant itself.

Once sufficient time has elapsed for osseointegration then the final stage is that of the restorations. The patient will have had temporary restorations during this time, but once the implants have completely fused then they are ready for the final restorations. been completed then the next stage is that of the insertion of the implant itself.

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped. Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth all on the same day.

The effects of tooth loss are numerous and can lead to a lack of confidence which affects everyday life. Dental Implants are the next best thing to natural teeth and can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. They last longer and provide greater structural support than either bridges or dentures. Dental Implants can also replace dentures to give you a more youthful looking, confident smile by enhancing the overall features of your face. With a brand new set of natural looking teeth, it really is like having a facelift.

The results are proven and astonishing, implants look and feel like real teeth and has positively changed many of our patients lives.

If an implant has a screw-thread on its outer surface it can be screwed into position and if it does not, it is usually tapped into place. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughnesses on the implant surface.



In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures. Click here for illustrated information.
