Replacing one or two missing teeth at Foxley Lane Dental

Single dental implants are a type of dental restoration used to replace one or two missing teeth. The implant consists of a small, biocompatible titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the tooth's root. The post integrates with the bone over time through a process called osseointegration, which allows the implant to provide a stable and secure foundation for a dental crown to be placed on top.

Single dental implants offer a number of benefits, including improved oral function, a more natural appearance, and long-lasting durability. With proper care and maintenance, a single dental implant can last for many years and help to restore your confidence in your smile.

The dental implants process

The process for dental implants typically takes one to two hours per session and takes place over two to three visits to our Purley practice, depending on the complexity of your case and how fast your implants heal.

1

Free consultation 

The first step is to schedule a free consultation with us to discuss your options for tooth replacement and determine if single or multiple dental implants are a good solution for you.

2

Implant placement

If dental implants are suitable for you, your dentist will surgically place the titanium post into the jawbone, which is typically done under local anaesthesia to ensure that you’re comfortable during the procedure.

3

Healing and integration

After we’ve placed the implant, the surrounding bone will gradually grow and fuse with the implant through a process called osseointegration, which typically takes several months.

4

Abutment placement

Once your implant has healed, your dentist will place an abutment onto the implant post, which is a small connector piece that will eventually attach the dental crown or restoration to the implant.

5

Dental crown placement 

Finally, the dental crown will be attached to the abutment. The crown is custom-made to match the size, shape, and colour of your surrounding teeth and is designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural smile.

Dental implants: your questions answered

  • How long do dental implants last?

    Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for tooth replacement. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for many years, even a lifetime, depending on factors such as oral hygiene habits, diet, and your overall health.

  • Are dental implants painful?

    The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, so you should not experience any pain during the treatment. Afterwards, some people experience mild discomfort or soreness, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

  • Can anyone get dental implants?

    Most people who are in good health and have enough bone density in their jaw are good candidates for dental implants. However, certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or active gum disease, may make implant placement more difficult. Our experienced dentists will evaluate your specific situation to determine if dental implants are a good option for you.

  • How do I care for my dental implants?

    To care for your dental implants, you should practice good oral hygiene habits such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash. You should also avoid biting down on hard objects and try to limit eating and drinking sugary and acidic foods and beverages. We also recommend regular dental check-ups and dental hygiene treatments to maintain the health of your implants and surrounding teeth and gums.

  • Can dental implants be used to replace multiple teeth?

    Yes, dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, depending on your needs. In some cases, multiple dental implants may be used to support a dental bridge or denture to replace multiple missing teeth, but we’ll help to determine the best treatment plan for your specific situation.
