Single Tooth Implant

Dental Implants, a Solution When You’ve Lost a Single Tooth

Your oral health is impacted by the loss of one tooth. A single implant can restore your tooth function and eliminate the risks caused by the gap between your teeth. Tooth loss makes your bone and gum tissue vulnerable to other conditions. Your surrounding teeth can shift, become misaligned, and lose supportive tissue. Treatment with a single dental implant forms a new tooth root. The implant is surgically placed within your jawbone to support your new tooth above your gums. Implants are made of titanium and provide a long-lasting tooth replacement. Your implant will adapt to your bone and gum tissue to restore your tooth function and appearance.

If you have lost your tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root. Much of the time, the treatment is fast, typically taking less time in the seat than a crown or root treatment, is essentially pain-free, and the recovery is regularly basic and clear. Most patients report less uneasiness after an implant is set than the following extraction by their specialist. An implant is surgically put in an opening that your dental specialist makes in the jawbone. After the implant attaches to your bone, it goes about as new “root” for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. A crown, which is made to resemble your natural tooth, is attached to the implant and fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth.

A denture is barely a perfect replacement for missing teeth. Dentures are frequently uncomfortable, can similarly harm the nearby teeth and gums, and will typically turn out to be loose after some time as your gums keep on shrink underneath them. What’s more, dentures should be removed around evening time, something that is simply becoming less socially acceptable.

It is important to replace absent or failing teeth, with fewer teeth on which to bite, the weights on the rest of the teeth increase and reduce their lifespan. Unopposed teeth can change position and hamper manner in which you bite and chew, so bringing on additional harm later on.
