Spotlight on Single Tooth Implants

No matter the reason for the loss of a tooth, having a gap in your smile can affect your appearance and self-confidence. If you’ve lost a tooth and are interested in getting a dental implant in Austin, then continue reading for a quick overview of single tooth implants.

The Single Tooth Implant

It’s not uncommon for people to think of dental implants as alternatives to dentures, but these restorations are far more versatile than that. Dental implants are not just for individuals who have lost several or all of their teeth, but for those who have only one missing tooth, as well. Single tooth implants are dental implants that are used to replace one lost tooth or several individual lost teeth. If you want to fill the gap left behind in your smile after losing a tooth, then a single tooth implant may be the right solution for you.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are made up of several parts. The implant component is a metal post that is typically made of titanium, and it is implanted into the patient’s jawbone in place of the root of the missing tooth. Then, the jawbone is given time to heal and integrate with the dental implant. During this period of healing, the patient is provided with a temporary crown to wear. Once the surgical site has healed, a permanent crown is affixed to the top of the implant to provide the patient with a natural-looking and long-lasting dental restoration.

The Evaluation Process

Before beginning the dental implant process, your dentist will first evaluate your mouth and speak with you about your treatment goals. To determine if you’re a good candidate for this procedure, your dentist will consider factors like the health of your teeth and gums, the location of the missing tooth, and the size and density of your jawbone. If you and your dentist determine that a single tooth implant is a good solution for your missing tooth, then your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan to begin the dental implant process.
