Single Dental Implants

Single Dental Implants

Even if you are only missing a single tooth it is still worth replacing it and one of the easiest ways to do so is with a dental implant. Opting for a dental implant has several advantages over other methods of tooth replacement as it will help protect your remaining teeth, ensuring they are kept in the correct positions and it will preserve your jawbone. There will be no need to cut down the adjacent teeth to support a bridge and a single implant can look amazingly natural and just like a real tooth emerging from your gums.

Many patients are candidates for dental implants. If you suffer from any of the problems listed above, you may very well be a candidate. Actually, even if you suffer from the following conditions, you still may be eligible for implants:

  • If you suffer from periodontal disease or gum disease
  • If you have significant bone loss
  • If you smoke cigarettes
  • If you have existing medical conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or a few other chronic illnesses

The implants procedure

The procedure is fairly extensive, but well worth the time it takes to replace your missing teeth.

  • Biocompatible titanium screws will act as the new root of your tooth after they are surgically placed into the jawbone.
  • Some time will need to lapse during a process called osseointegration. This is the time period when the bone fuses with the titanium screws, permitting a tight, long-lasting bond for a solid foundation.
  • After approximately 12-16 weeks, we will request that you come in to the office for your next appointment. We will take an impression of your teeth to make sure your treatment plan is running smoothly. During this appointment, we will customize the abutment, and create the dental crown (which will be placed on top of the implant).
  • At a subsequent appointment, we will place your permanent crown, ensuring a comfortable, secure fit.

If you suffer from dental anxiety or fears of the dentist, don’t worry! Sedation dentistry can help you minimize the anxiety so you can receive the dental care you need and deserve.
