Single Tooth Implant

Whether you are missing a tooth because of trauma or decay, a single tooth implant is often the optimal way to replace it. This sophisticated treatment is widely regarded as the gold standard for restoring missing teeth and will give you a replacement tooth that looks and feels every bit as good as your natural tooth.

What Is a Single Tooth Implant?

A single tooth implant consists of a single implant post or screw made from high-quality titanium alloy or a ceramic material called zirconia. A special attachment is fitted to the implant post and is called an abutment, and this supports the final restoration, which is an implant crown.

Who Can Have a Single Dental Implant?

Single dental implants are suitable for anyone with reasonable dental and medical health and who may be missing a tooth because of trauma or decay. Sometimes teeth are congenitally missing, meaning they never developed. Age isn’t a barrier generally, but your teeth and jaws must have finished growing. Usually, an implant dentist cannot fit a dental implant until a patient is at least aged 18.

Why Choose a Single Tooth Implant?

A single implant tooth provides the most natural-looking restoration, giving you a tooth that emerges from your gums, just like the real thing. We take great care when designing and crafting implant restorations, ensuring you receive an implant crown that blends in beautifully with your surrounding teeth.

Easy to Care for

A single tooth implant is super easy to care for as you can brush and floss around it exactly like a natural tooth. Brushing at least twice daily and flossing once daily, combined with regular checkups and cleanings, will help you to maintain a healthy, strong implant that should last for years.

Protecting Your Oral Health

Even a single missing tooth can make a tremendous difference to your dental health. Your remaining teeth will drift out of place, affecting their stability and your bite. Over time, the bone that used to surround your original tooth root begins to resorb.

A dental implant protects your jawbone and prevents resorption. Because the implant is self-supporting, it prevents unwanted tooth movements and shares the stresses created as you bite and chew food.
