What Are Single-Tooth Implants?

Single-tooth implants, as the name implies, are used to replace one missing tooth. They consist of two parts. The first part is the implant “post” or “rod.” This is a screw-shaped piece of titanium, which is surgically implanted in the area where you’ve lost your tooth. Once it heals and bonds with your mouth, it works similarly to a natural tooth root.

This implant supports a porcelain dental crown. This crown is designed to look and feel just like a real tooth, and is permanently attached to the dental implant once it has fully healed and bonded with your mouth. Together, the implant and dental crown mimic the natural anatomy of your tooth.

How It Helps

The Benefits Of Single-Tooth Implants

30+ year lifespan

With proper care, single-tooth implants will last for the rest of your life. They last much longer than other alternatives like dental bridges and dentures.

Natural look & feel

Single-tooth dental implants are completely indistinguishable from natural teeth. They will look natural when you smile and feel just like real teeth when you eat and speak.

Protects jaw health

Because the dental implant is implanted into your jaw bone, it prevents “bone resorption,” which happens when the jaw bone below a missing tooth is no longer stimulated by chewing and biting. This helps protect your overall oral health.

Easy to clean and maintain

You can treat your single-tooth implant just like a natural tooth. To protect your oral health and your implant, all you need to do is brush twice a day and floss once a day, and see Dr. Tori or Dr. Luis for teeth cleanings and oral exams every six months.
