What Are Single Tooth Implants?

Single tooth implants leverage advanced dental technology to replace a single missing tooth in such a way that you will not need to wear dentures or get a dental bridge. A dental implant, which is a small titanium screw, is placed in the jawbone. It will then integrate with the bone through a process called osseointegration.

Once the screw is secure in the jaw, a custom crown can be placed on top, which will serve as your new tooth. Once your single tooth implant is in place, it is like having a permanent tooth.

How Do Single Tooth Implants Work?

A single tooth implant will take a few visits to complete, and the entire process takes a number of months because the dental implant needs time to heal. After we have examined your mouth and taken appropriate digital X-rays and photos to capture your teeth and jaw structure, we will schedule a time to have the dental implant placed.

Once the dental implant is embedded in the jaw, it will need a period of a few months or more to fully heal. During that time, a temporary crown will be placed that keeps pressure off the healing implant. Finally, once the implant has healed and integrated with the jaw, we will create a permanent custom crown using CEREC technology, which we can place in one session.
