Single dental implant
Dental implants can help you regain your confidence if you've suffered the misfortune of loosing any of your teeth and whether it was through injury or disease - implants could be the answer for you. Perhaps you're just looking to stop the pain and discomfort of dentures. Either way, talk to us today to see how dental implants can change the way you feel about your teeth.
Because they are placed directly into the jawbone at the base or top of the jaw, they bond with the bone to form a strong anchor point for a replacement tooth. And they'll feel and look just like normal teeth once fitted, so you'll never be afraid to smile again.
And that's not all –implants also improve both speech and your ability to eat. Because they're fixed in your jawbone, they revive your mouth's ability to move and chew naturally, giving you back your freedom and confidence.
A single dental implant from PBA Dental & Implant Clinic in Gateacre, South Liverpool is the most functional secure replacement for a missing tooth, allowing you to eat, smile and laugh with confidence.
A single titanium implant is placed into the jaw, as the replacement root. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. The implant will need three to six months to heal and integrate with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.
A temporary crown may be fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.
Once your jaw has healed, an abutment may be fixed to the implant to hold your replacement tooth (crown) in place. Abutments are produced in titanium, gold or porcelain, and can come as a standard fit or crafted specifically for you. These options offer a range of aesthetics results, depending on your requirements.
A crown is then fitted on top, to replace your missing tooth. Your dentist will carefully match the colour of your crown to your natural teeth. Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us.
