Single Tooth Implants
A single tooth implant is a go-to solution to replace lost or missing teeth, owing to the long-term benefits it offers, with the added advantage of a natural looking and feeling prosthesis. By replacing both, the root and structure of the tooth, a single tooth implant is highly effective in stabilizing bone growth in the jaw and tackles overbite or underbite due to tooth loss.
What is the purpose of single-tooth implants?
A single dental implant is commonly used to replace a missing tooth that may have been lost or missing. It is also effective in replacing a tooth that is cracked, decaying or become loose due to injury or infection. The dental implant replaces the tooth root, allowing for better bone preservation, resulting in a tooth that functions and looks normal.
What is the process of single-tooth implants?
The process of a single tooth implant requires a few steps spread over several months, to ensure that the process is completed seamlessly.
An implant, which is made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jaw. It looks like a screw or cylinder and forms the base or root of the prosthesis. Over the next 6 months, this implant is left to heal and bond with the existing bone, to form an anchor for the implant.
The abutment is made of gold, titanium or porcelain, and is attached to the implant with a screw. This is the midpoint that connects the implant to the crown, which is the final covering. The abutment is shaped like a natural tooth that has been cut down to secure a dental crown.
This last step is conducted when the bone and gum tissues have completely healed. The crown, which is customized for you, is placed and secured onto the abutment. This is a permanent fixture that serves as a prosthetic tooth, resembling the shape, color, and feel of your natural teeth.
