Replacing a Single Tooth
Implants are the best option for tooth replacement. In most cases, a tooth can be removed and replaced with a dental implant straight away. This is termed an ‘immediate implant’ but is only possible when there's no infection, the mouth is healthy and there is sufficient bone around the root of the tooth. The advantage of an immediate replacement is we can remove the tooth, insert the dental implant and attach a temporary post and tooth in one visit.
After the healing process, which takes three to four months, we take a digital scan of your implant and a final post and porcelain crown is fitted.
