There is no better solution to treating a missing tooth than with a dental implant.

Revered as the premium tooth replacement treatment, single dental implants do everything your real teeth do.

What are single-tooth implants?

Single-tooth implants are a replacement for a lost tooth root. They are placed into the jaw, and a prosthetic tooth, such as a crown, is custom-designed to go over the top.

Dental implants are beneficial for both your tooth function, smile aesthetic, and jawbone health. They are the closest alternative to a real tooth available, offering better durability, strength, and stability than dentures and bridges.

Why choose single-tooth implants?

Love your teeth more than ever

Implants emulate real teeth so well that many of our patients tell us they actually prefer their implant to their real teeth. With a restored smile, you will be able to enjoy the life-changing perks that go with having all your teeth intact, from smiling, laughing and eating to feeling confident and able to relax about exposing your teeth around other people.

State-of-the-art processes to ensure a seamless treatment experience

Planning and delivering successful dental implant treatment is a meticulous process. We achieve desirable outcomes for our patients using technology such as our CBCT scanner, which accurately demonstrates which area of the jaw will best lend itself to implant placement. Identifying the correct area of the jawbone ensures your implant is in the right place for maximum durability, as implants need good jawbone volume for placement.

We also use digital impressions to obtain measurements for the crown that will eventually be fitted over your implant.

They look entirely natural

As implants are fixed directly into the gum as opposed to being secured to another tooth (like bridges) or depending on suction to stay in place over your gums (like dentures), they don’t look any different to real teeth.

The crown we make to fit over your implant will be every inch in keeping with your existing teeth. We use tooth-like materials in terms of texture, shade, and strength, so there will be no limitations placed on you when you eat or speak.

95%+ success rate

The implant systems we use are supported by decades of research and testing, so it’s no wonder the success rate is so high for our patients. We use the Sweden, Martina, Straumann and Neodent implant systems.

Your single-tooth implant journey

Step 1: Consultation

Your full consultation is when we will explain the treatment and take CBCT scans, X-rays and photographs of your mouth and jaw. We will present you with a treatment plan in the days after your consultation if you are eligible for treatment.

Step 2: Implant placement

Dental implants are placed under local anaesthetic by an Implant Dentist. This process takes approximately 1-2 hours. Once your implant is placed in the jaw, the healing period will begin right away. During this time, the jawbone grows around the implant, treating it as if it were a real tooth root.

Step 3: Crown design

Your crown is designed whilst you wait for the healing period of 3 to 6 months to be complete.

Step 4: Crown placement

Your crown is secured over the top of your tooth, allowing you to chew and bite just as you do with your existing natural teeth.


Why choose Ashbourne Road for single-tooth implants?

Ashbourne Road Dental is a long-established dental practice in the heart of Derby with an excellent reputation for patient care.

Our vision is to create a dental practice that reflects quality, has a caring attitude towards our patients, and a team that strives every day to do our utmost for patients.

We have many years of combined implant knowledge and use only the safest and most sustainable implant brands and restorative materials to make your crown.

Am I suitable for single-tooth implants?

A consultation with our professional dentists in Derby will establish if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Your general medical background and oral health will need to be assessed.

As implants rely on the jawbone growing around them, you must have a certain level of jawbone density to be eligible. Should we find you do not have the necessary pre-treatment amount of jawbone available, we can perform a bone regeneration graft to increase these levels. We perform these in-house, so you will not need to be referred out-of-practice.
