Single Dental Implant
Dental tooth implants are one of our most effective restorative treatments. If you need to replace a missing tooth and would prefer a more permanent alternative, a visit to our implant dentist will provide you with the solution you need to reclaim your quality of life, your smile and your self-esteem.
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 is the most functional secure replacement for a missing tooth, allowing you to eat, smile and laugh with confidence.
Dental Implant Treatment
Your dentist will place a single titanium implant into the jaw, as the replacement root. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. The implant may need between three and six months to heal and integrate with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.
A temporary crown may be fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.
Once your jaw has healed, an abutment will be fixed to the implant to hold your replacement tooth (crown) in place. Abutments are produced in titanium, gold or porcelain, and can come as a standard fit or crafted specifically for you. These options offer a range of aesthetics results, depending on your requirements.
A crown is then fitted on top, to replace your missing tooth. Your dentist will carefully match the colour of your crown to your natural teeth. Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us.
One Step Procedure
The dental implant is placed and then a temporary abutment is attached. A temporary crown is put in place, followed by a maximum healing period of three months for the lower jaw, and six months for the upper jaw.
Two Step Procedure
The dental implant is inserted and then covered by the gum, and left to heal. The abutment is attached at a later date. A temporary crown is put in place, followed by a maximum healing period of three months for the lower jaw, and six months for the upper jaw.
Fitting & re-examination
When the crown is ready, your dentist simply attaches it to the dental implant. This is usually followed by a few follow-up visits to check functionality. It is virtually impossible to see the difference between the existing teeth and the new

Smile without limits!
I had a dental implant over the summer with Dr Rad and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needed treatment. I was extremely anxious but due to Persheng and her team’s kindness and patience, I felt I was in safe hands. She explained what to expect and reassured me throughout the process. Due to the Persheng’s thoroughness and skill, I’ve not had any problems or complications with the implant. After the crown was fitted, I wasn’t happy with the fit. Persheng brought me back to alter the crown and refit it. It is now comfortable and I’m extremely pleased with the result. I highly recommend Dr Rad.

Why Consider Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
What are the benefits – why should I have dental implants?
What are the risks?
There is a small risk that the implants may not fuse properly with the bone in your mouth and so cannot be used. The risk is higher in certain individuals, particularly those who smoke, and you will be advised if we think the risk of failure is higher than normal in your case.
Implant placement involves surgery in your mouth and so may be followed by some soreness, swelling, bleeding or bruising. Any discomfort is usually controlled with simple painkillers and should only last a few days.
It is possible for parts of your implants to loosen or wear out with time. This can lead to failure of the implant, or the restoration on the implant, if not treated quickly. You will be responsible for the long term care of your implants and should arrange regular review appointments.
What happens after the procedure?
If you have had the procedure under local anaesthesia you will be able to leave the surgery as soon as the procedure has been completed. You should be able to eat normally after the surgery but a soft diet may be advised by your surgeon. You should avoid alcohol for 24 hours. Implant patients are advised to quit smoking before starting treatment and to remain a nonsmoker in the long-term.
