A single-tooth dental implant is a dental prosthetic that replaces just one tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. It’s made up of three parts: a titanium post that serves as an artificial tooth root, an abutment, which is a connector, and a porcelain crown, which is the part of the tooth that is visible when you smile.
If you are missing just one or a few teeth or you have a few teeth that are badly decayed and need to be replaced, you may be a good candidate for single-tooth replacements.
Before undergoing treatment, you must meet the following requirements:
Our dentist will do a consultation to determine if you are suitable for this tooth replacement option. Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate for the surgical procedure, we will create a treatment plan to meet your needs.
Single implants are a great way to restore your dental health, and they offer many benefits:
This restorative procedure involves placing a metal post into the jawbone and then attaching a replacement tooth to the post.
If you need any prep work done before your dental implant placement, we’ll do this first. This may include periodontal treatment, a bone graft, a gum graft, or tooth extraction.
Our dentist will give you specific instructions for the recovery process after your surgical implant placement. You may need to take some pain medication for a few days while you recovery, but thanks to advanced technology, you should not experience much pain after your surgery.
You’ll take it easy while your mouth heals, and then you’ll be back to eating all your favorite foods once again!
