Tooth loss is a common issue in the United States, affecting a significant portion of the population. With advancements in dental technology, replacing a missing tooth has become more accessible, and single tooth implants have revolutionized this aspect of dental care.

Our approach combines cutting-edge technology with expert dental care to improve the quality of life for those we serve.

What Is A Single Tooth Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw surgically placed into the jawbone in the missing tooth's space. Once in place, your dentist mounts the replacement tooth onto them. The new tooth looks and feels similar to your real tooth.

A single tooth dental implant is just as it sounds – an implant to replace a single missing tooth.

The Single Dental Implant Procedure

Getting an implant is an extensive process – and with good reason. Your dentist has to thoroughly vet you before they can give the go-ahead for the implant process.

Here’s what you can expect from a single tooth implant procedure -

Initial Consult

At the initial consultation, Dr. Afroz Burges will examine your teeth and gums. She will also request X-rays to assess if your jawbone is healthy enough to receive the single tooth implant.

You need sufficient bone quality and quantity to support the dental implant. If you don’t have this, Dr. Afroz Burges might recommend a bone graft before a dental implant.

Placement of Implant

The implant placement is a surgical procedure. Dr. Afroz Burges will cut into the gum tissue at the site of the missing tooth and drill a hole in the jawbone to place the implant post.

The implant post serves as the tooth’s root.

Placement of Abutment

There is a 3-6 month waiting period between placing the post and the abutment. This time allows the jawbone to heal and grow around the titanium post, fusing with it.

Our dentist attaches the abutment – also known as a connector – to the post.

Placing the Dental Crown

The final step involves attaching the dental crown to the implant post. The crown is manufactured in a dental lab and is made of porcelain-fused-to-metal for an enhanced appearance.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, if you are missing a single tooth, a dental implant can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

They can last between 20 and 30 years with proper care and maintenance.

While the process seems long, the final result for dental implants is worth the time and cost. So the answer is a resounding yes, a single tooth implant is worth it.

The cheapest way to replace a single tooth is via a partial denture or a dental bridge. However, both replacement options have significant disadvantages, including the need to be replaced regularly.

Research shows dental implants have a 90 to 95 percent success rate for over 10 years.

Single tooth implants carry the same risk as any other surgical procedure – the chance of infection and subsequent failure.
