Single Tooth Implant
If you have lost a tooth for any reason, such as injury, disease, infection or aging, the greatest resolution to your problem is a single tooth implant procedure. This type of advanced dentistry is a much better alternative to dental bridges and partial dentures, which can adversely affect the adjoining teeth. Dentures may become loose over time and will slip, make clicking sounds or even fall out.
A single tooth implant is not only a permanent and predicable solution to missing teeth; it looks and acts the same as your own, natural teeth. You take care of implants in the same way you care for your original teeth. There are no special tablets, pastes or cleaners necessary, as with dental bridges and dentures. In fact, most dental implant patients report forgetting that they even have dental implants, because they feel so comfortable.
A Single Tooth Implant can last a lifetime
A Single tooth implant, under proper conditions, such as placement by a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance, can last a lifetime. A periodontist is a dental expert who specializes in dental implants. The periodontist will consult with both you and your general dentist to determine where and how they will place your dental implant. The periodontist or oral surgeon will create a specific treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
If you are missing a single tooth, A Single tooth implant means that you need just one implant and a crown to replace the lost natural tooth and its root. A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone; the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes from the gum line; and the dental crown, which the implant dentist creates and fits onto the abutment for an attractive appearance. The titanium material used is compatible with the body and studies have shown that there is no risk of rejection while using it because titanium does not react with the bone tissues.
Get Your Smile Back with Single Tooth Implant
A dental implant replaces a single tooth without affecting the functioning of neighboring teeth. The implant integrates with the bone in a process called osseointegration, which keeps the bone intact. This is superior to the use of a bridge, where some of the bone previously surrounding the tooth deteriorates, causing potential complications, such as bone loss and muscle deterioration.
The experts at the Brighton Implant Clinic, who are highly trained specialists in the field of advanced dental techniques, highly recommend implants as the most effective remedy for lost teeth. A single tooth implant provides patients with the opportunity to get their healthy smiles back, unlike bridges where the gums often recede. Thanks to modern dental technology, implant treatment provides long lasting solutions in the field of tooth restoration, more so, in fact than any other current restoration procedure.
