Single Tooth Implant


Even if you are only missing a single tooth, it is essential you correct this so the functionality of the rest of your jaw is not impaired. Until recently, the only options for a missing tooth were a bridge or a partial denture. For many they are an excellent solution, however some people find them uncomfortable and difficult to maintain, so a dental implant can be the ideal solution.


A dental implant is a specially designed peg which is inserted into the jaw bone just like the root of your tooth. As daunting as this may sound, the process is relatively simple and painless. It is performed under a local anaesthetic. Shine Dental Implant Care use “The WAND”, which is our computerised anaesthetic delivery system for virtually pain-free injections, something which our patients appreciate.

The top of the peg is covered by a temporary crown while the bone integrates onto the implant. This takes about 3-4 months to ensure that the implant and bone have created a strong and long lasting foundation for a prosthetic tooth.

The prosthetic tooth is designed to give you optimum performance and bite, but it is also colour matched to your natural teeth so that nobody who sees you smile will have any way of knowing that you have an implant.
