Single dental implants

The loss of a tooth could be caused from many different reasons; tooth decay, infection, gum disease, trauma, or removal of an impacted tooth. A single dental implant from McGrath Dental in Hoylake is the most functional secure replacement for a missing tooth, allowing you to eat, smile and laugh with confidence.

A single titanium implant is placed into the jaw, as the replacement root. The implant will need three to six months to heal and integrate with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth. A temporary crown is usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment where your Dentist will carefully match the colour of your crown to your natural teeth.

For this case, one single implant was placed to fill the space. The final implant retained crown was fitted three months after the dental implant was placed

The benefits of a single dental implant: 

 - It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. 

 - An implant can last for many years if cared for properly 

 - It will not come loose or fall out 

 - An implant will feel just like a normal tooth in your mouth

Once your jaw has healed, an abutment will be fixed to the implant to hold your replacement tooth (crown) in place. Abutments are produced in titanium, gold or porcelain, and can come as a standard fit or crafted specifically for you. These options offer a range of aesthetics results, depending on your requirements.
