Dental implants can be used to replace single missing teeth. If you have a tooth that needs to be extracted the implant can often be placed at the same time. A dental implant is a replacement for a natural tooth root. Once the implant has been placed it is left for 4-6 months to allow the bone to biologically fuse with it. A crown is then made, which attaches to the top of the implant and hence replaces the missing tooth.
Single implants cost around £2,500.
