Single Tooth Dental Implants

Dental implants are an effective and long-term solution to tooth loss…

Dental implants are one of the most innovative and effective restorative dental treatments to date, and allow patients to recover the function and form of their smiles. If you would like a dental solution to missing teeth that is designed for longevity and functionality, dental implants may be what you are looking for.

What are dental implants?

The titanium implant is surgically placed into the underlying bone. The porcelain crown is then either cemented or screwed onto the implant after the appropriate healing time has elapsed. Suitable cases can have a temporary crown placed on the same day.

A significant advantage of implants over conventional bridgework is that the adjacent teeth remain unaffected by the treatment. Conventional bridgework requires reduction of the adjacent teeth, as seen below.
