Single Dental Implants in Glasgow

Missing teeth can affect your self-confidence and make everyday activities like smiling, eating and talking uncomfortable. Dental implants can permanently restore your smile and give you the confidence boost you deserve.

Single Dental Implants

The best solution for missing teeth

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that provides a solid anchor for dental restoration. A single dental implant could provide support for one or multiple artificial teeth. Dental implants are a popular choice for replacing missing teeth as they provide a strong and stable foundation.

Once the procedure is completed, the restoration will look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Dental implants are a popular choice for those looking for a long-term solution to their missing teeth. They allow you to eat, speak, chew and smile with confidence again.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are placed into the jawbone, where they will fuse with the surrounding bone tissue. This process is known as osseointegration, and it provides a strong and stable foundation for a dental crown or bridge. Once the implant has bonded with the bone, a small connector called an abutment is placed on top of the implant and this is used to hold the crown or bridge in place.

The dental implant is designed to last a lifetime, but the restoration may need to be replaced or repaired over time. We will always aim to provide you with a long-lasting solution, but we will also provide you with advice on how to take care of your implant to help it last for as long as possible. You’ll need to follow our aftercare advice to help protect your implant from infection, as this can cause the implant to fail.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are ideal for replacing one or more missing teeth. You could also opt for All-On-4 Dental Implants which can replace an entire arch. The treatment is suitable for most adults, but we will need to check that you have healthy teeth and gums.

To be considered a good candidate for dental implants, you will need to have good oral health and no signs of gum disease. You’ll also need to be a non-smoker, as smoking increases the risk of the implant failing. If you have a medical condition that affects your ability to heal, you may not be suitable for this treatment. During your initial consultation, we will explore all of this in greater detail.

Do dental implants hurt?

The dental implant procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the treatment. You may experience some discomfort and swelling afterwards, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.

In general, many patients report that dental implants are no more painful than a simple extraction. And once the treatment is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your favourite foods again. Unlike with dentures, you can eat any food you like with dental implants.

Devonshire Dental Care provides the best dental care that I have ever experienced. I recently developed a bad toothache and after having no sleep overnight, I called them as soon as they opened and not only did Nicola and her team fit me in but also relieved my pain. Nicola also went above and beyond in my opinion when she called me later in the day to see if I was doing ok and to let me know I should come back in if I had any problems. Thank you Nicola and the amazing team at Devonshire Dental, you are outstanding and I cannot recommend you more.

I went to Devonshire on a friend’s recommendation after receiving a treatment plan from another dentist indicating I need 4 fillings. Nicola made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in. Her professionalism is complemented by her friendly demeanour. Nicola advised I only needed 1 filling rather than 4. The filling was done perfectly and looks completely natural. My hygiene appointment was quick and thorough. The staff are really friendly and professional. Having trust in your dentist is so important and seeing Nicola has made me feel glad I came to the practice. I’ll be a returning patient and will recommend to all friends and colleagues.

I can’t say enough good things about Devonshire dental care and Mr Alan Rennie. Everyone there has a very relaxed and friendly approach, Alan talks you through your treatment options thoroughly and, after seeing him for 10 years I can confirm his work is to a very high stardard. I have been terrified of the dentist my whole life but going to Alan Rennie has really helped calm me down to the point going is much easier.
