Single tooth dental implants
Serving patients throughout Caversham, Emmer Green and Reading
Dental Implants are a fantastic solution for the permanent replacement of a missing tooth, performing and functioning just like your natural teeth.
Not only can implants recreate natural-looking teeth, but they also safeguard your overall dental health. Replacing missing teeth is extremely important, as missing teeth cause bone loss which will age your face and could potentially cause adjacent teeth to become loose too.
To replace a single missing tooth a single implant is needed. Our implant dentist, Dr Denis Zenon will carefully place a titanium implant into the jaw to replace the original root. This is then left for 3 to 6 months to heal and fuse with your jawbone, before securely attaching a crown. Dr Denis will ensure your crown is carefully crafted to blend perfectly with your natural teeth.
At Prospect Street Dental Practice we can assist with all implant cases, from the simplest to the most complex. Our patients have the peace of mind that they can access progressive technology and benefit from a wealth of experience from our implant dentist, Dr Denis.
The benefits of implants
- Implants look and feel just like natural teeth – you shouldn’t notice any difference.
- With dental implants, replacement teeth are securely anchored without compromising any neighbouring healthy teeth.
- Implants won’t come loose or fall out.
- Implants prevent ageing bone loss, by stimulating your bone structure and stabilising the surrounding teeth.
- Implants can last for many years if you maintain good oral hygiene.
Are you suitable for treatment?
Patients must have healthy gums and enough jawbone to support dental implants. At your initial consultation Dr Denis will use x-rays and scans to establish if pre-treatment is required and will explain this further.
Some patients may need to see a hygienist for a course of treatment to ensure their gums are strong and healthy before the dental implant process can begin.
Dr Denis will also check that there is sufficient bone for an implant to be placed successfully at this initial consultation. If there is insufficient bone you may need to need pre-treatment before your dental implants can be placed. This may include oral surgery procedures such as bone grafting or bone expansion.
