Single Tooth Replacement in Benfleet
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are placed in the jaw bone. A single implant can support a single tooth restoration. This is the ideal solution for missing teeth as the results will look and fell just like a real tooth. Single dental implants are ideal for patients who have lost teeth due to trauma, decay, or failed root canal therapy.

Restore your confidence
A missing tooth can damage your confidence and leave you struggling to smile, speak or eat. If you've lost a tooth due to trauma, tooth decay or failed root canal therapy, you might be wondering about your restoration options.
A single dental implant will look and feel just like a natural tooth, so you can get on with enjoying your life. Dental implants also help to maintain your jaw structure. A missing tooth can lead to your gums and jaw shrinking, which can lead to a change in your facial structure.
Protect the surrounding teeth
When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth lose their support. This can cause your teeth to drift out of alignment, making it more difficult to care for your teeth. With a single dental implant, you can restore the tooth and protect the surrounding teeth.
Dental implants are superior restorations as they do not require any preparation of the neighbouring teeth. To place a veneer or bridge, the surrounding teeth will need to provide an anchor. With a dental implant, the surrounding teeth are protected.

Is a single dental implant painful?
You may have some discomfort after your procedure, but this can be managed with pain medication. A dental implant is no more painful than a dental extraction. It is recommended to rest following your procedure to give your body time to heal. You also need to avoid strenuous lifting or exercise.
Is there a cheaper alternative to dental implants?
You could replace a single missing tooth with a bridge, but this would require preparation of the surrounding teeth. A veneer would also be suitable for a missing tooth at the front of the mouth. Dental implants are superior restorations as they allow the prosthesis to act like a real tooth.
Who isn't a candidate for dental implants?
If you have poor oral health, this can increase the risk of implant failure. Smoking, radiotherapy in the jaw area, uncontrolled diabetes and periodontal disease will all make you an unsuitable candidate for dental implants. Book a consultation to learn if you could be a good candidate for implants.
How long does a dental implant procedure take?
The procedure will take place over multiple visits. First, the implant is placed in your jaw bone and allowed to heal. Once the implant is sufficiently fused with the jaw bone, an abutment is placed. The abutment is visible above the gum surface. Next, the restoration is fixed to the abutment. If you require a bone graft to increase bone density, this will increase the treatment time. The entire process may take from 3-6 months to complete.
