Can dental implants be done in a day? It may come as a surprise to know that, YES, in many single teeth cases, it is possible to fit a dental implant in a day. In fact we do this procedure – known as an “immediate implant” – on a regular basis here at The Raglan Suite. It means that a patient can come into the practice, have the failing tooth removed and the implant placed together with an aesthetic temporary crown, all in the same appointment.
FILLING A GAP WITH A SINGLE TOOTH DENTAL IMPLANT18 September 2017 Categories: Dental implant

The most common case we do at The Raglan Suite is fill a gap with a single tooth dental implant. There are a number of reasons why a tooth may need to be removed, such as extensive decay or infection, trauma, a root fracture, a failed post crown or failed root filling. As dentists, we always try to save natural teeth. However, if it is clear that the tooth can not be saved, a single tooth dental implant offers a long term, stable and predictable solution.
Shopping around for a Dental Implant27 June 2017 Categories: Dental implant

There is little doubt that the “gold standard” way to replace a missing tooth is with a dental implant. They are very durable and completely independent of the adjacent teeth, which makes them by far the healthiest option, especially when compared to more conventional tooth supported bridges. As a way of securing dentures, they come into their own; loose dentures which can barely bite through soft bread can be transformed into teeth which can bite into an apple! No more fixative!
So it is little surprise that the demand for dental implants in Yorkshire and the UK is growing rapidly and in response to this growth, there are more and more dentists offering dental implants as a solution.
