The loss of a tooth could be caused from many different reasons; tooth decay, infection, gum disease, trauma, or removal of an impacted tooth.
A single dental implant from Westhill Dental Practice in Skene 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 is usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.
