What is a Single Tooth Implant?
Single-tooth implants are one of the most popular and successful ways to replace a missing or damaged tooth. It acts as an artificial tooth root and is used to replace a single missing tooth to create a natural-looking smile.
A single-tooth implant typically consists of a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone, an abutment that connects the post to your artificial tooth, and a custom-made crown (replacement tooth) designed to match your natural teeth.

Single-Tooth Implant Procedure
This surgical procedure typically requires two separate visits to our dental office. At the first visit, we will assess your oral health and determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant. If so, we will then begin the implant process.
The first step involves surgically placing the titanium post into your jawbone in order to serve as an artificial tooth root. Once the post is in place, it will be left to heal and fuse with the bone over a period of several weeks or months.
At the second visit, we will attach an abutment to the top of the post and take impressions for your custom-made crown. The crown is then placed onto the abutment to complete your new smile!
