Single Tooth Dental Implants at Brite Dental

 

What is a single tooth implant?

A dental implant is a dental device that is used to replace a missing tooth or to serve as an anchor for dentures. The implant consists of a metal post that is implanted into the jawbone where it acts as an artificial root. A single dental implant is the most functional secure replacement for a missing tooth, allowing you to eat, smile and laugh with confidence.

 

Who is the right candidate for a single dental implant? 

When you lose one of your teeth, whether it be due to illness, injury, or any other cause, you may be feeling insecure and unsure of where to turn next. While there are many options out there, dental implants outweigh bridges and dentures in terms of durability, aesthetics, ease, and convenience. One dental implant topped with a single crown is the right choice for someone missing just one tooth. We can also place single tooth dental implants at various points in the mouth if you are missing multiple scattered teeth.

 

The single tooth implant process

  • Damaged tooth removal
  • Jawbone preparation
  • Dental Implant placement
  • Bone growth & healing
  • Abutment placement
  • Artificial tooth placement

The single tooth implant process is simple and straightforward. First, the implant, which looks like a screw or cylinder, is inserted into your jaw. The implant and the bone are then bonded together to create a foundation for the artificial tooth to adhere to. Lastly, the artificial tooth will be attached to the abutment and the implant will be completed. The result is a natural-looking, fully functional tooth that, if properly cared for, will last a lifetime.

Why choose a single dental implant?

With state-of-the-art modern technology, we are able to provide the most accurate diagnosis and care for patients needing single tooth dental implants. The main reason for single tooth dental implants’ superiority is their likeness to healthy, natural tooth. If you are missing a single tooth, a dental implant will replace both your natural tooth and its root, giving you a brand-new synthetic tooth that looks and works exactly like a natural tooth.
