Missing a single tooth can be easily taken care of by a Single Tooth Implant. Single tooth implants, just like any other type of dental implant, are designed to provide a foundation for the missing teeth. It is highly recognized to be the most reliable and long-term solutions for tooth replacement.
During a single tooth implant procedure, an implant is surgically placed in the jawbone. This implant will then serve as a “root” or “anchor” for the crown, which will be your new tooth. The crown will appear very much like a real tooth and will replace the vacant area along your gum.
A Single implant in addition of looking and functioning like a natural tooth has more advantage that a tooth-supported fixed bridge. Gums can recede around a bridge. By other hand because a dental implant will replace your tooth root being integrate with your jawbone, the bone is better preserved and stops the absorption process.
