At The Good Dentist Newcastle, we understand that a single missing tooth can greatly impact your oral health and self-confidence. Beyond the physical discomfort, it can affect your ability to chew and speak confidently. You may also experience shifting of surrounding teeth, bone loss, and even changes in facial structure.

Fortunately, single tooth implants can be the perfect permanent solution for a missing tooth replacement; improving your oral function, restoring your smile, and boosting your confidence.

We are here to provide compassionate care, restore your smile, and help you regain your oral health and self-assurance. Let us guide you towards a beautiful, functional smile that makes you beam with confidence.

What is a Single Tooth Implant?

A single tooth implant is a permanent solution designed to replace a missing natural tooth with an artificial tooth. It consists of three main components: the Implant Post, the Abutment, and the Crown. Together, these components mimic the natural tooth structure and provide a durable and functional replacement.

  1. The Implant Post is made of biocompatible material, usually titanium, and acts as an artificial tooth root
  2. The Abutment is attached to the implant post and serves as a connector between the post and the crown
  3. The Crown is the visible part of the tooth replacement and custom-made to match your surrounding teeth, providing a natural-looking, seamless appearance

Benefits of Single Tooth Implants

With a single tooth implant, you can expect improved oral function by restoring proper biting and chewing abilities. This allows you to enjoy your favourite foods without limitations. Implants also help prevent bone loss and facial sagging associated with missing teeth.

Dental tooth implants are designed to seamlessly integrate with your surrounding teeth, providing a natural-looking appearance. By restoring your smile, these implants can boost your self-esteem and improve your overall confidence.

Compared to other tooth replacement options, single tooth implants offer exceptional longevity, often lasting a lifetime with proper care. They have a high success rate and a low risk of complications, giving you peace of mind.

The Good Dentist Offers Gold Standard Implants

At The Good Dentist, we proudly use the MIS SEVEN Internal Hexagon Implant System, which has quickly become the gold standard for single implants. Its innovative design allows for precise and stable placement, resulting in long-lasting and reliable replacements. We are excited to offer our patients the latest in advanced technology and the highest quality of care for outstanding results.

The Single Tooth Implant Procedure

Before the implant placement, our qualified dental team will consult with you to determine your eligibility for a single tooth implant. This will involve pre-operative dental examinations, including an intraoral-oral scan and a 3D Cone Beam x-ray, to assess your bone density and overall oral health. Our highly skilled team will then explain each step involved, and once we have your consent to proceed the MIS SEVEN laboratory will be contacted to manufacture your dental tooth implant.

The actual procedure begins with the administration of local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort before creating a small incision to precisely place the implant post in your jawbone and suturing the incision.

Following the surgery, we will provide post-operative care instructions, including pain management and proper oral hygiene practices. Osseointegration, the process where the implant fuses with your jawbone, is crucial for long-term stability. Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress.
