TruCare Dental offers single-tooth dental implants, a durable and natural-looking solution for replacing a missing tooth. This treatment is ideal for individuals who are missing one tooth due to injury, decay or any other reason, providing a permanent and aesthetically pleasing replacement.
Overview of Single-Tooth Dental Implants
Single-tooth implants consist of a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as a root for the artificial tooth. Once the implant integrates with the bone, a custom-made crown is attached, providing the look, feel and function of a natural tooth.
Benefits of Single-Tooth Implants
- Natural Appearance: Implants closely resemble real teeth in look and function.
- Preservation of Oral Health: They prevent shifting of surrounding teeth and preserve jawbone health.
- Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Improved Oral Function: They restore your ability to chew and speak normally.
- No Impact on Adjacent Teeth: Unlike bridges, implants do not require altering neighboring teeth.
Ideal Candidates for Single-Tooth Implants
You might be a perfect candidate if you:
- Have one missing tooth.
- Have a jawbone that’s adequate to support the implant or can undergo bone grafting.
- Maintain good overall oral health.
With a consultation, our dentists will help determine if a single-tooth implant is the best option for you.
The Single-Tooth Implant Process
Your journey to a restored smile includes:
- Initial Consultation: A comprehensive examination to plan your treatment.
- Implant Placement: The titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone.
- Healing Phase: A period for the implant to integrate with the bone.
- Crown Attachment: Once healed, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant.
