If you’re missing a single tooth or need to have one removed due to decay or injury, then you might want to consider a single tooth dental implant as a replacement.
A single tooth dental implant is used to replace a single missing tooth and comprises a titanium screw that will be affixed to the jaw and act as the new ‘root’ for either a new denture or crown.
We always recommend replacing missing teeth as gaps in the mouth can lead to more complex oral health issues in the future. These include the remaining teeth moving and misaligning to fill the gap, potential bone loss in the jaw, problems with eating and speaking, and food and debris getting trapped.
Single tooth dental implants provide a stable, long lasting option for patients looking to replace a tooth and can stop these problems from arising. It can also help you feel more comfortable and confident when you smile.
Most single tooth dental implants are fitted over multiple appointments. After verifying that you’re a viable candidate for the treatment, we’ll first fit you for the implant. This will take place under local anaesthetic so you won’t experience any discomfort.
The new tooth will then be affixed to the new titanium implant at a subsequent appointment, and you’ll leave the practice with a happier and healthier smile.Back to Dental Implants
