Single dental implant in Newcastle upon Tyne

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 Higgins & Winter Dental in Newcastle is the most functional secure replacement for a missing tooth, allowing you to eat, smile and laugh with confidence.

      The process

      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.

      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 Newcastle-upon-Tyne dentist will carefully match the colour of your crown to your natural teeth.
