Emergency Care

Say ‘goodbye’ to the hang-ups you have with your smile thanks to single tooth implants.

This innovative tooth replacement treatment provides a natural-looking new tooth worthy of your smile and facial aesthetic and returns chewing function up to 90%.

Treatment Overview

Purpose: To replace individual missing teeth with a fixed and biocompatible solution.
Lasts for: 10-30 + years (long-term solution that can be permanent with good care).
Type of treatment: Tooth replacement treatment that supports jawbone and gum health.

What is a single-tooth implant?

Your single-tooth implant is a replacement for a tooth root that has failed or been extracted as a result of gum disease, dental infection or injury.

Single-tooth implants stand out as a means of replacing a missing tooth, as they are the most functional and tooth-like option. Implants are placed into the jawbone by our experienced oral surgeon. Following this procedure, the body’s healing mechanisms get to work, inducing integration between the implant and the jawbone.

What are the benefits of single-tooth implants?

Enjoy your favourite foods

This is one of the top reasons our patients love implants so much because: they make it possible to chew foods of all textures. You will no longer have to analyse a menu and worry about choosing foods that might make chewing a challenge.

Say ‘goodbye’ to speech difficulties

Even one missing tooth can cause speech impediments that inhibit your ability to be understood. Your implant will be affixed to your jawbone, giving you the confidence to talk with complete clarity.

A boost for your self-esteem

Having a full set of teeth to smile with can work wonders for your confidence. If you’ve previously had removable dental work, you will find that implants are incredibly stable, so you don’t have to worry about any movement in your mouth whilst you talk, chew, or laugh.

Excellent success rates after 10 years

Single dental implants have a success rate of over 95% after 10 years, making them an extremely reliable long-term treatment option offered by our dental practice in Wigan.

The treatment process

Step 1: Consultation

As dentists, the consultation process is key. It gives us an opportunity to get to know you, how you feel about your smile, and to explain all the ways in which implants can change your life for the better. Suppose you have been wearing removable dentures or a bridge for a number of years. In that case, we can also outline how implants can elevate the functionality of these restorations and give you a better quality of life.

Step 2: Tailored treatment plan

Once you have decided to proceed with treatment, X-rays, CT scans, and intra-oral scans of your teeth are taken. From this, we can assess your jawbone density to identify where the implant should be placed for long-term success.

Step 3: Implant surgery + healing

A local anaesthetic is administered to numb the gum line, ensuring you are completely comfortable throughout the surgery. A 3 to 6-month healing period commences once the implant is within the jawbone, during which time the jawbone grows around and interconnects with the titanium implant.

Step 4: Fitting your crown

Once your dentist is confident that your jaw has fully healed, the crown can be placed over the implant. Your crown will have been created from digital impressions and detailed aesthetic specifications, resulting in a natural-looking outcome.
