A Strong Replacement When You’ve Lost One Tooth
The gap caused by tooth loss can cause problems if you delay tooth replacement. Single implants fill and restore your missing tooth gap.
Your bone and gum tissue are at risk when you have a missing tooth. The remaining gap can provide an opportunity for your surrounding teeth to move and become misaligned.
A single implant creates a new tooth root. Your implant is made of a surgical grade of titanium and is placed via oral surgery into your bone and gum tissue.
After a necessary healing period your new tooth (a dental crown) is secured to the upper portion of your implant. Your tooth secured by a single implant can last for over 10 years with proper care.
