Single Dental Implants

When you’re missing a tooth, you want to get it replaced as soon as possible. Single dental implants at Smile Design Implant Centers will replace the tooth as well as the root. This service will restore the function of your teeth so you can eat, talk, and smile like normal again.

What Happens When You’re Missing a Tooth?

A missing tooth can cause more than just embarrassment. They’re responsible for your facial structure and shape – without the support, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate. You may lose other teeth if the bone that supports the rest of them becomes damaged. You also risk your remaining teeth shifting in an attempt to close the gap.

Who Can Get Single Dental Implants?

Anyone with a missing tooth can benefit from dental implants, but other factors can determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure or not. Those who do not have excellent oral hygiene will have a less effective treatment because their implants will likely fail.

The following people are the best candidates for dental implants:

  • Those with healthy gums
  • Those with good oral hygiene
  • Those with enough bone to support the implant
  • Non-smokers

The Single Dental Implant Process

Knowing what to expect during the procedure can make it more bearable. First, after determining the strength of your jawbone, we will drill a hole in the bone where the implant will be placed. Once it has fused with the bone, we will provide you with a temporary crown until the gums finish healing. Finally, we’ll bond the permanent crown to the abutment. You’re now ready to show off your new smile!
