A missing tooth can certainly take the confidence out of your smile, especially if it creates a visible, noticeable gap. At Shine Dental Care in Mansfield, we provide single tooth implant treatment to help patients rediscover their smiles. This advanced treatment also cares for your dental health in ways that are completely unique to dental implants.
Even a single missing tooth can impact on your dental health. Neighbouring teeth may move into the gap and the opposing tooth on the other jaw is also affected as it no longer has its complementary force every time you bite. Over time, the bone that surrounded the tooth root deteriorates making your jawbone less strong and dense. Traditionally, the solutions were limited to partial dentures or a bridge. Single tooth implants are now the preferred choice as they look, feel and work like the real thing while helping to preserve jawbone.
Single tooth implant treatment at Shine Dental Care, Mansfield
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is inserted into the jawbone just like the root of a real tooth. The top of this artificial root is covered by a temporary crown while the bone integrates onto the implant. Integration can take around 3 to 4 months but the benefits are extremely worthwhile – good integration creates a strong and lasting foundation for a permanent crown.
This kind of stability is unique to dental implants and is what makes them feel so secure and natural. Finally, the permanent crown is attached to the implant. Designed for optimum bite and performance, we also carefully colour match it to your natural teeth so that nobody will know you’ve had a tooth implant.*
We have a great deal of experience in dental implant treatment and support our patients in every way to help make the procedure less daunting and as pain free as possible. Dental implant surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic and is relatively simple and straightforward.
