Single Implant Retained Crown

Dental Implants Petersfield

If you are replacing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A single titanium screw is placed into the jawbone to act as the ‘root’. This is then left in place to integrate with the bone to form an anchor for the artificial tooth. Depending on the location in the jaw you may be provided with a temporary crown or the implant will be ‘covered’ over. As the dental implant integrates with your jaw it actually helps to preserve bone levels.

 After this healing period, which is usually 3-4 months, the implant is ‘uncovered’ or the temporary crown is removed. A small extension in the form of a metal post, known as an abutment, is fixed to the implant. The bespoke permanent replacement crown created for you by our chosen dental laboratory is then attached to the abutment.

The whole process will be complete in around 4-6 months. Dental Implants are so natural looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
