Single implants can be used to replace individual or several missing teeth to provide a long term and healthy alternative to either a partial denture or a conventional bridge (which usually involves cutting down healthy adjacent teeth).

Single implants usually come in three parts: the actual implant is a titanium screw which is inserted into the bone, an abutment (a kind of peg) which is screwed onto the implant which supports a custom made crown which is either cemented or screwed onto it.

Single Implants

The start to finish treatment time for single tooth implants is usually 12 weeks and normally involves 5 appointments:

  1.  Implant assessment and CAT scan
  2. Implant placement
  3. Implant exposure
  4. Pick up impressions and technician colour matching
  5. Crown and abutment fit

Our Implant team co-ordinate to cater for all stages of implant work and work with all major implant systems.

Immediate Implants

When a tooth has been extracted a conventional implant can usually only be placed into the bone after the socket has healed and this usually takes around 12 weeks-during this healing process the socket ‘folds in on itself’ and bone is lost-this means that to get a perfect result we sometimes need to add extra bone which complicates the procedure and sometimes compromises the aesthetics and it adds extra expense.

INVERTA immediate implants have been specifically designed to allow a tooth or root to be extracted and replaced immediately with an implant and temporary crown. These innovative ‘body shift’ implants provide the most aesthetic solution for patients with existing teeth that need to be extracted. It also allows treatment to be completed in just 12 weeks (instead of 24).

Single implants with 2 Teeth

Sometimes (if bone levels allow) it is possible to restore two teeth with just one dental implant.

Implant Bridges

Implant retained bridges provide a cost-effective way of replacing several missing teeth with fewer implants.
