Whether you’ve lost a tooth as a result of an injury or you’ve had to have it removed as part of your gum disease treatment, single-tooth dental implants can help restore your smile and close the unsightly gap your tooth has left in its wake.
Whilst full-mouth dental implants and implant-retained dentures are ideal for those with several missing teeth, single-tooth implants provide the ideal solution for patients only missing a single tooth.
Here at Shawlands Dental Care, we’ve helped hundreds of patients to restore their smiles with dental implants in Glasgow, so you can consider us your go-to team whenever you need high-quality treatments.

Whereas dental implants and implant-retained dentures in Glasgow are better suited for patients that are missing one or both sets of their teeth (upper and/or lower), single-tooth implants are, as the name suggests, ideal for those who are only missing one tooth.
Using a titanium screw and dental crown, the screw will be inserted into the jawbone and left to heal for around 3 to 6 months to fuse with the surrounding jawbone before the crown is placed over the top.
This looks and feels just like a natural tooth – so you don’t have to worry about people noticing that you’ve gotten a dental implant or having to adjust your lifestyle and oral hygiene routine to accommodate the implant.
Most patients we see are eligible for a single-tooth dental implant, and so long as you’re over the age of 18, have sufficient bone density and good oral health overall, you should be able to undergo treatment with us.
We appreciate that the dental implant procedure can sound frightening, but we can assure you that it’s nothing to worry about.
Feeling nervous about coming in for any dental treatment is totally normal, and if you suffer from dental anxiety, you aren’t alone. But you shouldn’t let it stop you from seeking the treatment you need to achieve a stunning, healthy smile.
We helped many patients who suffer from dental anxiety feel more comfortable about sitting in the treatment chair, and we have many tried and tested methods to help you do the same – including dental sedation to ensure you don’t feel a thing during the implant placement.
To discuss how we can help make your experience with us more comfortable, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experts.
