What is a single tooth implant?
A single tooth implant is an ideal solution for individuals who are missing individual teeth. The replaced tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. You will help be able to regain confidence in your smile.Speak and smile again without worrying about your missing tooth.
An additional benefit to single a tooth implant is that it can help prevent bone loss. This can not be accomplished by wearing a conventional dental bridge. That is because the implant stimulates the bone, through regular chewing and biting, which helps to stave off deterioration of the jaw.
How the Implant will be Placed
Prior to your procedure day, patients come in for a consultation. They meet with the Surgeon and Treatment Coordinator. An impression appointment is then booked and all necessary medical reviews and paperwork are completed.
On the day of your procedure, you will be greeted and put at ease by our friendly staff. The single tooth implant typically requires a 1-2 hour procedure, including recovery time. We will normally place a temporary crown on the implant on the day of surgery so that you will leave our office with a new smile.
After four to six months, the temporary crown will be replaced with a final crown. Afterward, you will see your doctor for periodic checkups.
