Single Tooth Dental Implants

If you are missing a single tooth, an implant can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

What are the advantages of a single-tooth implant

A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth.

Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. In the long term, a single implant can be more esthetic and easier to keep clean.

How will the implant be placed?

First, the implant, which looks like a screw or cylinder, is placed into your jaw. Over the next three to six months, the implant and the bone are allowed to bond together to form an anchor for your artificial tooth. During this time, a temporary tooth replacement option can be worn over the implant site.

Finally, a replacement tooth called a crown will be created for you by your dentist and attached to the abutment. After a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling; you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
