For patients missing or soon to be missing a single tooth, a single dental implant is the ideal solution. There are multiple treatment options to consider when replacing a missing tooth, but dental implants are a permanent, worry-free solution. Consisting of a small screw and a customized crown, dental implants are ideal for replacing single teeth without impairing gum health or damaging surrounding teeth.
When a dental implant is placed in your jawbone, the implant body bonds with your natural bone. The implant body becomes a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth. A connector known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crown(s)
BENEFITS OF SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANT
No damage to natural teeth. Maintenance of Bone Volume (the implant preserves the bone) Less Force on Surrounding Teeth (the implant strengthens the surrounding teeth/arch) Better Aesthetic Outcome (if the implant is properly positioned)
