Single Dental Implants

Fix Single Tooth Loss

  • Lost a tooth to decay or gum disease?
  • Knocked out tooth? Tooth extracted?
  • More than half broken away?
  • The tooth is wobbly and cannot be saved?

We know it’s worrying when you’ve lost a tooth, whether through decay, trauma or extraction – but thanks to modern dentistry, you don’t have to settle for fake teeth like dentures.

Instead, a single-tooth implant provides the most effective solution to replace your lost tooth and preserve your remaining teeth and bone.

Replace a tooth in just a few hours

Replacing a lost tooth with an implant, is the healthiest approach for the future of your oral health, as implants preserve the bone in the jaw and avoid the need to modify any adjacent healthy teeth like a dental bridge would.

With the dental implant surgery typically taking one hour to complete chairside, patients can replace their missing teeth within 1-2 hours but then must wait three months for the site to heal before being fitted with the final restoration, typically a crown.

What’s so great about single implants?

  • They look, feel and function just like a regular tooth.
  • Specifically designed to replicate your natural teeth.
  • Made from Titanium, a highly durable material that can last up to 30 years.
  • They blend flawlessly with existing teeth.
  • Permanently fixed, meaning no likelihood of movement.
  • They prevent bone loss and future tooth loss.

The cost of a single implant

The cost of a single implant at our London clinic is from £1520.

The price covers the three components of your implant:

  • The implant – shaped like a screw placed in the jaw.
  • The abutment – the connector between the implant and crown.
  • The crown – a porcelain crown made specially to match neighbouring teeth.

What’s the implant procedure like?

  • Reported as a painless procedure
  • Sedation dentistry available for nervous patients
  • Or gas & air options to calm anxiety

Receiving a dental implant will require oral surgery under local anaesthesia. Our oral surgeon will cut into your gum to expose the bone; from here, a hole will be drilled into the bone for the metal implant to be placed.

Patients will still have a gap where the tooth was lost following this procedure. Whilst we wait for the implant site to heal (osseointegration), we can use a temporary solution to fill the gap for cosmetic purposes. Still, following that, patients can expect a fully restored tooth in three or so months.

A prior consultation is necessary

While the best option for missing teeth candidates, dental implant surgery can fail – and it’s often down to poor prior planning and rushing the osseointegration and healing process. That’s why choosing a reputable and skilled implant dentist, with an implant success rate of 98.6% and years of experience placing dental implants, is essential.

A prior dental implant consultation is non-negotiable to see if you are a good candidate for the treatment and if you have enough bone density in your jawbone to withstand an implant. For your single implant to be successful, patients need healthy gums, excellent oral hygiene habits, and an adequate amount of bone – and it’s in your implant consultation that we assess for these criteria.

If, in the unlikely event, we find that you have experienced bone loss, which can happen if you’ve ignored missing teeth for some time, it’s not the end of the road. For example, we can carry out pre-prosthetic procedures like bone grafts and sinus lifts to ensure your mouth is suitable for implantation.

Alternatives to dental implants:

  • Partial dentures
  • Dental bridges

The above treatments are traditional tooth replacement methods.

Whilst they’re successful in replacing a tooth aesthetically, in terms of function and improving the wider oral health, they’re not always favoured.

For example, dentures can be loose and uncomfortable, and bridges require neighbouring teeth to be filed to be fitted with crowns.

Both treatments also do not support bone in the jaw, which, over time, can cause remaining teeth to shift out of place, become wobbly and possibly fall out.

I’ve been seeing George for over 15 years. One of my best decisions. Teeth needed serious attention and were immediately “rescued”. They have been maintained to an excellent level ever since. Fantastic treatment and continuing results.

Was in need of a deep scaling for oral hygiene and start pains of a Carrie. I’m one of those and for all work completed under N20 (Nitrous Oxide Gas) for seems to be only way. He was able to see me and complete this matter swiftly and professionally. Didn’t scare me out of the chair. Recommend this practice and would return on a layover.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting CapCityDental for a dental cleaning, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. As someone who prioritizes oral health, I’ve had my fair share of dental appointments, but this one truly stood out. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and at ease, setting the tone for a fantastic dental cleaning session.

The moment I stepped into the clinic, the friendly receptionist – Michael, greeted me with a warm smile and efficiently took care of the check-in process. The waiting area was clean, comfortable, and featured modern decor that helped create a relaxing atmosphere. It was clear that the staff at at CapCityDental value professionalism and patient comfort.

Dr. George, the senior dental hygienist was a true expert in his field. He took the time to explain the entire cleaning process, making sure I was comfortable and informed every step of the way. Indeed, it did feel like a warm hug. Furthermore, his dental nurse Marilou was just a gem. Her gentle yet thorough approach put me at ease, and I could sense her commitment to delivering top-notch oral care. It’s evident that CapCityDental has a team that’s passionate about what they do.

What truly sets CapCityDental apart was their dedication to personalized care and patient education. The hygienist nurse took the time to discuss my oral health habits and offered valuable insights on how to improve my routine. She answered all my questions patiently, showing a genuine interest in my oral health journey. This level of individualized attention left a lasting impression on me.

In conclusion, my dental cleaning experience at CapCityDental was nothing short of outstanding. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I felt valued as a patient and confident in the care I received. The professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern for patient well-being were evident throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking exceptional dental care in a welcoming and modern environment.

I’m already looking forward to my next visit!

I had emergency root canal with George and team, and subsequent fillings and hygiene. The service and quality of finish was impeccable. Excellent communication and a focus on patient experience puts you at ease from the start. The after care is also excellent. Couldn’t recommend enough.

I have been so incredibly impressed with my experiences at CAP City Dental. George has been so professional, caring and clearly has a wealth of experience within dentistry. I have had a variety of treatments over many years with George and he is the only dentist I have ever come across that has been able to ease my anxiety surrounding dental treatment. The new Austin Friars premises is so well located in the heart of London and it’s actually a tranquil experience to attend appointments.100% recommended!

George and his team have been looking after me for almost 10 years now. When George took me on, my teeth were in a very sorry state. Since then George has worked very hard to improve the function, health and look of my teeth.

Thanks to George I only require routine checkups and the odd piece of work now. Seeing George has made going to the dentist a breeze and a very happy social occasion!

I can’t recommend George highly enough. The best dentist I’ve ever had. Very attentive and caring…with exquisite attention to detail; second to none.

I should also mention that the new location in Austin Friars is a lovely calm oasis in the heart of the City. Modern health setting in a historic built environment.

Thanks George.

I had a tooth that was causing me severe pain. I was feeling highly anxious because my previous dentist treated the wrong tooth. My childhood orthodontist left me with an occlusion and had taken out too many teeth. I was having trouble finding a dentist who would not only treat my gaps and cavities, but would also provide an unbiased opinion of my previous treatments. After appointments with other clinics, I found Cap City Dental. Dr Druttman, Marilou, Reni and Michael were welcoming. They helped me correct years of problems in just three visits over as many weeks. The team genuinely try to understand what you are trying to achieve. They don’t push you to have work done. I particularly appreciated Dr Druttman’s comprehensive reports in which he provided his professional opinion on what happened and what should happen moving forward. I highly recommend them not only because they make sure you feel comfortable, but provide you with enough information to ensure you can make an informed decision.
