Single Dental Implants Essex

Book a free consultation

Losing a tooth can impact everything from the way you eat and talk to the confidence of your smile – but these changes don’t have to last forever. Single tooth dental implants are considered one of the most effective solutions to a missing tooth, which not only bridge the gap in your smile but present an authentic look that mimics your natural teeth.

Functioning just like a normal tooth, a single dental implant is fixed atop a screw which is set into the jawbone, making it long lasting and effective solution to a missing tooth. Keep reading to find out how the process works and whether you could be eligible for implant treatment at our clinic in Essex.

How does a single dental implant work?

It doesn’t matter how you lost your tooth, whether in an accident or following scheduled tooth removal – the results are always the same and can have a transformational impact on the look and brightness of your smile.

A dental implant is a long-term solution which sees a fixture embedded in the jawline underneath the gum and then left to heal for up to two months. Once recovered, it is this fixture onto which the dental implant is fixed in place. From then on, your implant looks and feels just like a regular tooth – requiring the same high level of cleaning and oral hygiene, to ensure that they last.

Eligibility and what you need to know about dental implants

Not every patient is eligible or suitable for dental implants, as there are certain requirements to ensure that the treatment is a success. Patients who undergo this treatment need to have healthy gums and plenty of jawbones to fix and hold the fixture in place. They also need to have a good oral hygiene routine and visit the dentist regularly to ensure the longevity of their implant.

This is because, for the most part, once a dental implant has been fixed in place it can stay there for upwards of ten years. Other benefits of a dental implant include stability, restoration in the strength of your teeth and jawline, and of course, the natural aesthetic which makes a dental implant one of the most popular solutions for missing teeth.

For those who are not eligible for a single dental implant, one of the best alternative solutions is a dental bridge which joins an artificial tooth to the neighbouring tooth to hold it in place. For those unable to access or afford a dental implant, dental bridges are worth exploring with the support of your dentist or a dental consultant.

What next?

If you’re missing a tooth and would like to discuss a dental implant with one of our dental consultants or specialists, you can reach us online or over the phone.

You will first be invited to a consultation to discuss your specific needs and your ideal results, where expectations are laid out and managed. We can then discuss progressing your treatment if you decide to go ahead and we grant your case eligible for a dental implant.

Patients are advised to bear in mind the treatment time. Dental implants are not an overnight fix, with the fixture requiring up to two months of recovery time before the implant can be fitted.

I really want to thank Dr. Alistair for the amazing job he did. When my veneer fell off, I was pretty worried. But Dr. Alistair fixed it fast and now my smile looks great again. Everyone at the clinic was very nice and made me feel comfortable. Big thanks to Dr. Alistair for taking such good care of me and doing such a great job!

I had a bridge fitted by Ruth Badoo on Friday 2nd Feb 2024. What a lovely thoughtful kind dentist she is. Both my daughter and myself highly recommend Ruth and the Clinic . All the reception staff are so friendly and helpful. Many many thanks again to Ruth!

I have just returned home and wanted to give some good feedback. When I arrived I was greeted by their reception staff with a smile and very friendly greeting. My NHS appointment was with Dr Ijaz Hussain at Bluebell. As a nervous patient I am very pleased to say how thorough and gentle Dr Hussain was. He explained my options and treatment required to maintain the health of my teeth and gums. Thanks to him and all the staff I will look forward to returning to this practice again in the future, rather than being stressed and nervous. Best wishes, Simon
Dr suki is truly deserving of recognition for her exceptional work. She is a true diamond in the field of dentistry, Her accommodating nature and warm personality make her a joy to be around, and she is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure that her patients receive the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Suki to anyone seeking top-notch dental care in the UK. She was also very understanding during the times I've had to bring my toddler in with me, I am so happy to have picked bluebell for my teeth straightening journey.

Don't normally write reviews, but felt I wanted to, Kazeem is a fantastic dentist, puts you at ease, explains everything to you. I have full faith in him, and would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family. Found Annie on reception very friendly and helpful

I want to say BIG BIG thank you to Dr.Alistair for his incredible work, he help me gain my smile back. When all other dentist in the borough and central London had turned me away due to how complicated and unique my case was. Dr.Alistair went above and beyond to help me. Giving 5 star ⭐️ isn’t not enough he deserves 100 stars. Also, Dr. Robin was just amazing during my gum grafting, he kept me informed all along the process and made the surgery as transparent as possible. Finally the receptionist team were very kind and understanding every time I was running late, they were very flexible and understanding so I don’t miss my appointment. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to the whole Bluebell dental team for everything they have done for me.

I had never been to a dental hygienist before and my first go was with Samira. The practice was really clean and welcoming and Samira was amazing. I was originally quite nervous but I was immediately put at ease and Samira kept me informed of what she was doing at each stage. She did an incredible job and even though she gave me top marks for my gums, I got some really good advice to take away and will be coming back to make sure I'm on top of my oral health!! Thank you :)

Very thankful to the Dr Farrell for squeezing me and helping me eliminate the pain I was in. Thank you so much I wish I could do more. You guys are the best! ❤️ love Shaheen ❤️

I had my teeth done by Sukhi for my wedding almost 10 years ago and I still get compliments on my smile today. The teeth whitening I had done has lasted all these years, people actually ask me often, if I have had my teeth whitened. A team of highly skilled professionals leading in dentistry & aesthetics!
Haroon Chaudhry
I had previously visited this establishment almost a year and a half ago and had my tooth removed. At the time, it was a emergency so didn’t think much of the visit. It was pleasant and it ended the pain I was in. This was my second visit, and as expected I had a great experience. All of the staff were very friendly, and they were very accommodating when asking questions. I was seen by Dr Farrell, and his friendly nature and genuine concern for my teeth instantly put me at ease. It wasn’t just the treatment that was quick and painless, but he was very articulate as to what else I should continue to do to keep my teeth healthy. For me the visit was definitely a decider as to my go to dental clinic, and Dr Farrell really went over and beyond what I was expecting, so Thank you. Definitely recommend this place!
