If you are missing a single tooth, you may be considering a dental implant.
At Monadnock Dental Associates, we specialize in single tooth implants and other tooth replacement options.
A single tooth implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the missing tooth root. Once the implant has bonded with the jawbone, a dental crown is placed on top of the implant to restore the visible portion of the tooth.
Implants require oral surgery, and the healing process can take several months.
Single tooth implants offer several benefits over other types of dental restoration, including:
Don’t let tooth loss keep you from smiling with confidence! Single tooth implants can restore your smile and replace teeth you are missing. Implants provide a permanent solution to enhance your dental health and provide you with a more attractive smile.
The single dental implant process begins with a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. During the consultation, we will assess your individual needs and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
If you are determined to be a good candidate for single dental implants, the next step is to have the implant placed. This is a minor surgical procedure that is performed under local anesthesia. Once the implant has been placed, it will take several months to bond with the jawbone.
Once this process is complete, a custom dental crown will be placed on the implant. Soon you will have a fully restored, functional smile!
You may be a good candidate for single dental implants if you are missing a single tooth and healthy gums. You must also have enough bone in your jaw to support the implant. If you do not have enough bone, you may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure before placing the implant. Though you may only need to replace one tooth, we evaluate your dental health to ensure implant placement success.
