A single dental implant is an ideal solution for a missing tooth. If you have lost a tooth due to trauma or decay, you might be feeling self-conscious about the gap left behind. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant will give you the confidence to smile again. To learn more about how a single tooth implant could help you, book your consultation with our dental implant team.

The dental implant procedure explained

The procedure for placing a single dental implant is very simple. First, we will create a small pocket in the jaw bone and place a titanium screw in this hole. The gum is stitched up and the implant is left to integrate with the bone. Once healed, an abutment is placed on top of the implant to help shape the gum contour. And finally, the dental crown is placed on top of the abutment to complete the restoration.

Replacing a missing tooth will also help to protect the surrounding teeth, as it will prevent them from drifting into the space. It also helps to protect the teeth in the opposite arch by ensuring you can still chew and bite normally. Losing a tooth can impact your oral health and damage your confidence, but you don't have to live with a gap in your smile. For a permanent solution to a missing tooth, a single dental implant is an ideal choice.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

To find out if you could be a suitable candidate for dental implants to replace a missing tooth, you will need to arrange a consultation with our team. We will inspect your mouth and jaw to determine if a single dental implant could help to resolve your dental problems. Health and lifestyle factors may prevent you from getting dental implants, but we will advise you on the alternatives if this is the case.

Your treatment journey

Your treatment journey

Every patient journey is unique but these are the typical steps you can expect.

Your initial consultation

During the initial appointment, we will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. We may recommend other treatments.

Ask questions

The first appointment is also your opportunity to ask questions about the treatment and make sure it is right for you.


We take scans to assess if implants are suitable for you and to plan out every step in detail.

Placing the implants

A small pocket is created in the gum and jaw to place the dental implant and allow it to heal.

Placing the abutment

A healing abutment sits between the dental implant and the bridge to help create a natural gum contour.

Placing the bridge

Your custom bridge is permanently attached to the implants and your restoration is complete.

Aftercare and support

We will provide comprehensive aftercare and support to ensure your implant bridge is healthy.

Frequently asked questions

The dental implant part of the restoration should last a lifetime with the correct care. The dental crown might need to be replaced or restored after 10-15 years as it may suffer from ordinary wear and tear.

Longer implants may be used to place a restoration in a single day, but it often takes multiple visits to give the dental implant time to heal. We will explore possible treatment options and timelines with you during your initial consultation.

There are certain health and lifestyle factors that may prevent you from having dental implats. If you are a smoker, we would not recommend dental implants. If you have gum disease or other oral health issues, we would recommend getting this under control before starting treatment. Some health conditions may also make you an unsuitable candidate.

The gum above the dental implant will take around 1-2 weeks to heal, but the process of fusing the dental implant to be bone could take up to 3 months. Once the gum has healed, you won't notice this stage in the healing process.

During every step in the procedure, you will be completely numb, so you should not feel any pain or discomfort. As this local anaesthetic wears off, you may have some discomfort which can be controlled with pain medication such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. It should be no more uncomfortable than a tooth extraction.

You could have up to three teeth on a single dental implant, sometimes even more. If you are missing more than one tooth in a row, we may be able to place a dental implant bridge.

The cost of single tooth implants

A single tooth implant is incredibly cost-effective when you consider the lifetime value of the restoration. Every treatment journey is unique, so the final cost will depend on a number of factors, including additional treatments such as bone grafting. To get your personalised quote for a dental implant, we recommend booking an appointment with our dental implant team. We can explore the payment options during your consultation.
