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.
Can I get a dental implant if I am only missing one tooth?
Yes! Many of our patients with a single missing tooth have chosen dental implants to restore the appearance and function of their smiles.
What are the advantages of a single implant?
A single implant will fill in the gap created by a single missing tooth.
Implants are permanent and do not need to be removed for maintenance and cleaning.
They also offer the added benefit of preventing the surrounding teeth from shifting out of position.
The crown that is attached to the 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.
How will I clean my implant?
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 cleanings.
