Everything you need to know about single dental implants

  • The implant is the artificial tooth root positioned in the jaw. 
  • The titanium post is for the crown to attach securely to
  • The crown is the actual new tooth

The dental implant itself is a titanium post, which acts as an artificial tooth replacement for the new, false tooth.

The treatment length for dental implants can vary because it will depend on your unique case and the type of restoration or technique chosen.

However, in the most straightforward cases where a CBCT scan shows a good amount of bone, Dr Gutierres predicts that the healing time would be around three months and that the patient would be a good candidate for temporary teeth.

However, Dr Gutierres will break down the timings and explain all the details you need to know in your bespoke treatment plan.

Dr Gutierres, will position the titanium post deep into the jawbone so that it can act as a replica of natural tooth roots.

Once the titanium screw has had enough time to heal and fuse with the bone in your jaw (often 3-6 months), we will be at the stage where we can place the abutment and crown.

There are alternative treatments we can investigate to replace single tooth loss, like bridgework or dentures.

Still, both have been found on decaying teeth, worsen the oral condition and be unflattering or uncomfortable.

Whilst dental implants might be the pricier option, considering the cost of replacing bridgework or broken dentures, a dental implant might be able to save you money in the long run.

Dental implants are considered an investment because they will keep your smile strong and healthy for many, many years to come – trust us when we tell you that you won’t find a better restorative solution.

There are several worrying consequences of ignoring a missing tooth.

One of them being further tooth loss. Gaps between two teeth can cause teeth further gum recession and lead to another wobbly tooth that needs attention.

When you lose a tooth, pressure is put on the remaining teeth, and the jaw bone also loses vital bone mass that holds teeth firmly in position.

This is why facial contortions, wobbly teeth and tooth movement are common symptoms.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
