In case you didn’t know, almost everyone loses at least one adult tooth by the time they become a senior. Some may think that this is just a cosmetic issue, but without replacing a missing or extracted tooth, you run the risk of a plethora of other problems. If you have recently lost a tooth or will need to have a tooth extracted, single tooth dental implants may be the solution that you’re looking for. In the following article we will discuss what a single Tooth dental implant is and why they can be beneficial to the future of your teeth and health.
Our teeth are very important parts of our body that both help us to eat and speak. Our teeth roots go deep into our jaws to stimulate bone. Once there is no longer any tooth within our jaw, the bone is no longer stimulated and can become weakened overtime. With one or more missing teeth, we run a much higher risk of developing facial deformities, tooth decay, gum disease, and malocclusion.
Dental implants are part of the latest and greatest in dental technology. They are popular long-term treatments that begin with a titanium rod and is then anchored into the jaw. Attached at the top of this rod is a small device that acts as a saddle for the crown and which it is placed on top and each crown is designed perfectly to match the tone and shape with the surrounding natural teeth.
Because the screening process for single tooth dental implant is exceptionally thorough, our team will need to look at your medical history and inspect your gums to make sure there is no serious oral health issues developing.
The procedure itself can typically be carried out in about an hour. During the procedure, the implant is precisely anchored into the bone, and once the mouth has healed in the bone is attached to the implant, that crown is then placed on top to complete your smile.
