- Was the tooth knocked out from an injury?
- Had a tooth extracted and need a replacement?
- Want a new, natural-looking tooth?
Whether you’re missing a front tooth or a back molar, a dental implant can help restore a missing tooth for up to 30 years.
The implant acts as a tooth root, preventing bone loss, facial sagging and existing teeth drifting into the empty gap.
All of which avoids further tooth loss. Once we’ve positioned the implant in your jaw, we can complete it with a dental crown that perfectly blends with existing teeth.
Cost of a single implant:
Our practice in Wycombe charges £2,500 – which includes:
- The dental implant – mimics a natural tooth root
- The abutment – connects the implant to the crown
- The porcelain crown – high-quality material to mimic natural teeth
0% finance is available for patients looking to spread the cost of their implant over 12 affordable monthly instalments.
Why a dental implant is likely your best choice:
- It doesn’t cause otherwise healthy teeth to be damaged like with bridges.
- Prevents bone loss in the jaw, unlike other tooth replacement methods.
- More comfortable than dentures.
- Prevents facial sagging and drooping.
- Durable, lasting 30 years making it the longest-lasting replacement method.
- The closest prosthetic to mimic natural teeth.
- Causes no speech or chewing problems.
- Secured to the jaw and is a permanent restoration.
Placing a single dental implant
In most scenarios, placing a dental implant is quick – taking less time in the chair than placing a crown or conducting a root canal.
Patients often report the procedure as pain-free, but we understand for highly nervous patients, it can be worrying, and dental sedation is available.
The aftermath of placing a single implant follows with relatively little discomfort, the same feeling reported as tooth extraction, all managed by over-the-counter medication.
Once the implant is placed, we will have to wait three months for osseointegration. Then, we can put a crown to complete your restoration.
Qualifying for implant surgery
To be a suitable candidate for dental implants, we must ensure you have the following:
- Healthy gums (no gum disease)
- Enough bone in the jaw to support an implant
- Excellent oral hygiene
Consequences of ignoring a missing tooth
- Neighbouring teeth can move and shift to fill the gap.
- Bone in the jaw continues to deplete, making future implant placement difficult.
- Facial sagging is experienced.
- Gum disease and decay can spread through the mouth.
- Future further tooth loss is common.
