At East Village Dental, our team can replace a missing tooth and help restore a happy smile with single tooth dental implants.
We can use a single tooth dental implant to replace a missing tooth or a tooth that’s in need of replacement due to decay or damage that is beyond repair. These implants are made up of a titanium ‘peg’ that is implanted into the jaw to act as the new root for the tooth. A prosthetic tooth is then affixed atop it.
How you replace a missing or soon to be extracted tooth is a big decision that we don’t take lightly. We’ll always talk through all your options with you at a consultation and help with any advice we can. Patients who receive single tooth dental implants love the fact that they look and feel so natural. They provide a stable, comfortable replacement that is both highly durable and aesthetically pleasing.
Receiving a single tooth dental implant takes place over several appointments and months. During a consultation, we’ll first take an X-ray and scan your mouth. This is so we can be sure you are a good candidate for this treatment, as there has to be enough healthy jaw present to accept and fuse with the implant.
When your implant is being fitted, we’ll administer local anaesthetic, so you don’t feel anything. Our highly skilled team will then cut into the jaw and safely and securely insert the titanium implant.
At this point, we’ll affix a temporary crown or tooth while the jawbone and implant fuse together. This usually takes a few months, at which point you’ll return to the practice and we’ll fit you for your permanent tooth.
