What is Single Tooth Replacement?
Single tooth replacement happens when you need to replace only one tooth. Replacing one tooth is beneficial when you have a single tooth that is damaged. We can replace your tooth without damaging your gums or surrounding teeth.
What are the Benefits of Replacing One Tooth?
By replacing only one tooth we are able to replace one tooth without needing a whole set of implants. We also reduce the risk of damage to surrounding teeth and gums. Single implants also help maintain bone volume. They function the same way multiple implants do. Implants allow the bone to grow around the implant. This protects the bone inside your mouth.
Single Tooth Implant Procedure
The single tooth replacement procedure is the same as a regular implant procedure. First, the dentist places a screw and the implant into the gum. Then a temporary crown is placed on top of the implant. After a few weeks, the implant sets in the gum and the root of the tooth. Then, we remove the temporary crown and replace it with the permanent crown.
