A dental implant is an artificial tooth made from titanium, which is inserted into the jawbone and capped with a crown or bridge resulting in a complete, aesthetically pleasing smile.
Yes! Many of our patients with a single missing tooth have chosen dental implants to restore their natural confident smile!
A single implant will fill in the gap created by a single missing tooth. Implants are permanent and, unlike dentures, do not need to be removed for maintenance and cleaning. Also, unlike a bridge that affects the teeth that surround it, when an implant is placed none of the adjacent teeth are affected.
The crown that will be attached to your single implant is custom-made for each of our patients. This allows our skilled team to select the exact shade and shape of crown that is correct for you, resulting in a beautifully corrected smile with no unsightly gaps!
To care for your dental implant, you will follow your regular dental hygiene routine, with daily brushing and flossing, and with regular check-ups and professional cleaning.
When we insert a single implant, we follow a two-step process. Over the course of three appointments, we will perform an Implant Placement and Implant Restoration procedures.
If you have a gap in your smile due to a single missing tooth, and would like to permanently restore your smile by filling in that gap, you might be a candidate for a single dental implant. Our experienced team would be pleased to discuss whether a single dental implant might be right for you.
