At Hunter Dental Care, Dr. Hunter highly recommends single tooth extraction as an effective solution to filling teeth gaps.
What are Single Tooth Implants
As the name suggests, a single tooth implant is a dental implant used to replace a missing tooth. These implants are considered an effective and long-lasting solution, lasting about 10 years with proper care.
The procedure for a single tooth implant is relatively straightforward. Dr. Hunter will attach a titanium post in the jawbone where the tooth is missing to replace the tooth's root. Then he will then attach a dental crown over the titanium post.
The procedure can take up to an hour, during which you are under anesthesia. The tooth is fully functional, and patients can enjoy the benefits they would expect from their teeth.
Are you wondering if a single tooth implant is a good choice? Some of the benefits of single tooth implants include:
|•||Ensure Health for Neighboring Teeth
|•||Easy to Clean|
Is A Single Tooth Implant Right For You?
A single tooth implant is a surgical procedure that must be considered thoroughly. At Hunter Dental Care, our dentist Dr. Hunter will do a thorough examination to decide if you should opt for a single tooth implant or multiple tooth implant.
First, Dr. Hunter will take x-rays to ensure that your jawbone can support the implant, especially after tooth extraction. If it is not, he will perform a bone graft first, after which you will need to wait a few months for the bone to heal.
Besides the bone, your neighboring teeth, supporting tissue, and gum must be healthy to ensure proper support of the single tooth implant.
If you are missing a tooth or scheduled for tooth extraction, a single tooth implant or multiple tooth implant is an ideal treatment method and deserves to be considered.
