Dental Implants for Single Missing Tooth



When both the tooth and root are damaged or there is a single missing tooth, the best permanent replacement is a single tooth implant. This solution looks and functions just like a natural tooth.


For a single missing tooth a one-piece dental implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single tooth implant unit, which results in an immediately fully functioning tooth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.


One Tooth Missing



Treatment Procedure


1. Before the procedure: Before the placement of the dental implant an examination and necessary x-rays are taken to prepare for the procedure

2. Installing the implant: Once an implant is placed, a temporary tooth is provided so you will be able to eat and function normally. The implant needs a few months to integrate with the jawbone prior to the placement of the permanent tooth.

3. Attaching the new tooth: The final step is the placement of the new permanent ceramic tooth. Your new tooth functions just like a natural tooth. It will be important for you keep up with your dental hygiene, keeping the tooth and gum clean and healthy.
