To Replace A Missing Tooth
Single tooth dental implants are designed for anyone who is missing one or more teeth. An implant is placed into the jawbone where the tooth will be positioned and acts as the root to the new tooth also known as a crown. Traditionally, this procedure would be done with two separate appointments that are scheduled 3-6 months apart. However, with new advancements, everything can be done in just one day. Dental implants are the best, longest lasting option to restore a missing tooth.
In addition to looking and functioning just like a regular tooth, implants are inserted without doing any damage to neighboring teeth. Because the single dental implant acts as a tooth root, the bone is better preserved as the dental implants join with the jaw bone, keeping it healthy and intact. Along with looking just like a normal tooth, the implant is also easy to keep clean. Having a single tooth implant will look and feel just like the natural tooth that it is replacing.

Implants vs. Dentures
While dentures are less expensive than teeth in a day supported implants, dentures are typically poorly fitting, uncomfortable, and sometimes painful. Dentures often negatively affect your speech and sometimes have damaging psychological effects. Dental implants are permanent and offer a much better quality of life.
