Single Implant

What is a Single Implant?

Tooth loss may result from many different reasons; trauma, tooth decay and gum disease.

Replacing a single tooth with a dental implant at Ainsty Dental and Implant Clinic provides you with a secure solution, enabling you to smile and eat with confidence.

A single dental implant is placed into the jaw to replace the tooth root. For this we use a local anaesthetic allowing the procedure to be carried out without discomfort. The implant is then normally left for a period of 12 weeks to integrate with the bone and provide a secure platform for replacing the tooth. Once your implant has integrated then a dental crown can be secured into place. The crown is carefully matched to blend in with your natural teeth.

Dental Implant Types

The most common types of dental implants are Single Implants, Multiple Implants and Implant Retained Dentures

Single Implant

An implant is a great option for a single missing tooth, both at the front or the back of the mouth.

Multiple Implants

If more than one tooth is missing, there may still be implant options open to you.

Implant Retained Dentures

Dentures can be a compromise and may be uncomfortable or move when you talk and eat.

The Benefits of a Single Implant?

  • They look and also perform like natural teeth
  • Durability due to a 95% success rate
  • No coverage on the palate and hence no gagging or loss of comfort
  • Stability as a result of the implants being fixed, therefore no worry of your teeth falling out
  • Dental implant placement does not require the reduction of adjacent teeth in contrast to dental bridges

Our 3 Step Process

Strategic planning is an important step in the phase of any treatment. Below outlines our 3 step Dental Implant plan.

Assessment and Planning

Firstly, we must evaluate your needs, clinical history and perform a thorough assessment. We will also perform diagnostic scans such as a CBCT (3D X-ray) to help plan your case. Above all it is important to evaluate each case to find the best solution.


The implant is placed securely into the bone and a number of sutures may be placed. 10-14 days later the sutures are removed and the implants left to integrate into the bone. In some circumstances the implants may have a temporary crown placed at the same time of placement but the permanent restorations are generally placed at approximately 12 weeks.


Implant treatment does not end when the prosthesis is placed. It is very important to follow your dentists instructions on cleaning as well as attending all of the check-ups. This is the only way to ensure your implant treatment is durable over the long term.
