Single Implants

Single-tooth implants can be used in people who are missing one or more teeth.

Losing a tooth can feel like you’ve lost your whole smile and can lead to loss of confidence from the beauty of your natural smile. You can also find that it interrupts your daily routine when it comes to eating and speaking. As a result, patients will turn to single tooth dental implants as a long-term solution.

What Are Single Tooth Dental Implants?
An implant is surgically placed in an opening that your dentist makes in the jawbone. After the implant attaches to your bone, it acts as a new “root” for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. A crown, which is made to look like a natural tooth, is attached to the implant and fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth.

Benefits of having a Single Dental Implant
There can be several benefits to having single implants as your long term solution to missing teeth.

Implants function in the same way as natural teeth. This means you can eat any type of food you like – with confidence and without pain – including foods that are hard, like apples, or difficult to chew, like crusty bread or steak. Implants also improve your ‘bite’ (i.e. the action of the jaws opening and closing), meaning your new teeth can bite and chew food just like normal teeth.

Implants are permanently fixed in place, so you don’t have to remove them for cleaning, take them out at night or worry about them moving, becoming loose or falling out. So, with one or two additional cleaning methods, which you will be shown you can clean your new implant-supported teeth as easily as natural teeth.

Most beneficial of all is the improved confidence that it can bring to your day to day life. A gap in your tooth may prevent you from smiling throughout the day, feeling anxious that someone will notice the missing tooth. Since dental implants act as a replacement for your natural tooth, the transition is seamless, making it practically unnoticeable.

Our 5* Reviews

“Once I had made my decision to have a large tooth from the back of my mouth removed (after speaking to 2 consultants at the practice to get all the options clear in my mind), my appointment was quickly made and even though I was quite nervous Richard was so kind and patient with me. It was quite a difficult extraction (but absolutely no pain) and I expected to be sore and swollen the next day – but to my surprise all was fine. I can highly recommend Hale Dental and especially Richard.”

“In need of implants and scared of the whole process, Hale Dental have already made me more comfortable: you know that you are in safe hands.”
Steve Donaldson
“We have had nothing but good experience with Hale Dental. All the dentists and staff are very supportive, efficient and friendly. Our daughter had to have an extraction to allow further orthodontist work and Richard handled it very smoothly. Our daughter recovered very quickly with very little discomfort. Couldn’t recommend Hale Dental more highly.”

They don’t offer you treatment that you don’t need. All the options are clearly explained to you and everyone is very careful and gently through the treatment to put you at ease. I can’t say that I love going to the dentist but I do love Hale Dental.”
