At Clocktower Dental Surgery our skilled, compassionate team is able to restore our patients’ smiles to full function and happiness with single tooth dental implants.

What is a single tooth dental implant?

As the name implies, a single tooth dental implant can be used to replace a missing or soon to be extracted tooth with a single dental implant. They are made up of a metal screw – usually made of titanium – that acts as the new root for the tooth. A prosthetic tooth then sits on top of it, offering durability, security, and a natural-looking finish when it comes to tooth replacement.

Why do I need one?

As with all our treatments – especially restorations and replacements – we’ll always talk through all your options with you beforehand. In this way, you can be sure you are making an informed decision that you are confident and happy with.

We may recommend a single tooth dental implant to patients who have lost a tooth due to decay, damage or injury, or to patients who have a tooth that is decayed or damaged beyond saving. We are able to offer several options when it comes to replacement, but we do find that patients are often pleased with the level of comfort and stability offered by single tooth dental implants. They are also very natural looking, leaving behind aesthetically pleasing finish patients love.

How long does the treatment take?

As with most implants, the treatment for a single tooth dental implant can take several months. This is because once we have applied the implant – i.e., the metal screw – we have to allow a month or two for the implant and the jawbone to successfully fuse together. Once this has happened, we can then apply the prosthetic tooth. In the interim, we’ll be able to offer a temporary tooth to wear.
