Single Tooth Implants

Single Tooth Implant

A single tooth dental implant and a crown can replace a single lost tooth and it’s one of the safest and most reliable dental procedures when carried out by a skilled and experienced dental implant dentist. Dental implants feel and work much like a natural tooth would, making them the ideal solution for tooth loss.

One of the many benefits of a single tooth implant is that the neighboring teeth are maintained by replacing just one tooth rather than using a traditional bridge. They are also available in a range of length and dimensions to seamlessly match existing teeth.

  • To retain and support your crowns, a connector known as an abutment is inserted on top of the dental implant.
  • The crowns are manufactured to fit your mouth and match your natural teeth.

Since molars normally handle the majority of the chewing, using the largest implant possible is optimal. Your dental team can select the ideal implant for the tooth to be replaced by precisely measuring the jaw before implant surgery. The implant operation is meticulously planned utilizing computer-assisted planning software and dental CT scan technologies.

The contemporary method of replacing a missing or unhealthy tooth is with a dental implant. If you have missing teeth or teeth that are significantly damaged, you’ve undoubtedly dealt with one or more of the following:

  • Difficulty chewing food.
  • Shifting of adjacent teeth. Due to teeth shifting over time, a lost tooth might significantly affect otherwise healthy surrounding teeth.
  • Gum disease, poor dental hygiene, and bad breath.
  • Bone loss. Your body naturally strives to mend itself when a tooth is missing from the mouth. Unfortunately, bone resorption results from this normal healing process.
  • Avoidance of talking or smiling. People who have a noticeably missing tooth, frequently dread speaking or smiling in public.

    Here are the two most common options for treating single tooth loss:
  • A conventional bridge supported by teeth (3-unit bridge)
  • A crown supported by implants

Benefits of replacing a missing tooth with a single tooth dental implant:

A standard dental bridge supported by your teeth is not as effective as an implant-supported crown.

  • A long-term solution. Although a dental bridge may be less expensive up front, it cannot replace a tooth permanently. Over the course of your life, bridges frequently need to be repaired or even replaced, which can be more expensive in the long run. The success rate of dental implants is 97%, which is much greater than that of any other method of replacing teeth.
  • Standard of care. Due to the jawbone’s ability to fuse with the titanium implant and provide a sturdy foundation for the new crown, dental implants are now accepted as the “standard of care” for replacing missing teeth. The end result is a replacement that is stable and powerful and that feels, looks, and performs just like natural teeth.
  • Preservation of surrounding teeth. A dental implant will prevent the destruction and grinding down of your nearby natural teeth as opposed to a bridge.
  • Ease of care. Since a dental implant performs similarly to a natural tooth, you should maintain appropriate daily oral hygiene for it just like you would for other natural teeth.

Single dental implant procedure

The dental implant staff at Wilmot Family Dentistry will make sure you are at ease and have awareness of the process at every stage.

  • Consultation and treatment planning. Depending on your particular situation, replacing a single lost tooth with a dental implant may require a range of techniques. Our experts will collaborate with you to choose the right course of treatment for you.
  • Implant placement. A single dental implant requires only a local anesthetic and is a reasonably simple surgery. One titanium fixture will be inserted into the jaw during the treatment, leaving the surrounding healthy teeth unaltered.
  • Recovery time. Depending on how your body reacts and your present health, the healing and recovery process following the placement of your dental implant can take three to six months. This gives the implant time to fuse with the bone. To ensure the dental implant is healing properly, you will schedule a few postoperative visits with our dental team. Your general dentist or a prosthodontist will restore your implant by putting an abutment and a crown after it has properly fused with your jawbone.

Single dental implant cost

The cost of a single dental implant depends on your insurance coverage. We may be able to provide discounts if applicable.

Dr. Lyman and his team are the best! The pano machine was down last week but they made sure to call me right away when it was fixed and scheduled me in the next week. Front desk is approachable, friendly and super nice. The wait times aren’t really long and that’s perfect! Thought I was only getting my X-rays today but they pulled through with pulling my wisdom teeth and reassured me everything was going to be ok. Recommend this dental for a family like feel. Definitely coming back again!
