Single Tooth Implant
Mason, OH

Photograph of dental implants fromFox Dental Excellence in Mason, OH.A single tooth implant is an implant used to replace a missing tooth. Replacing a missing tooth is important as a missing tooth can lead to chewing difficulties, shifting of adjacent teeth, gum disease, and loss of jawbone strength. Moreover, an individual with a missing tooth can also experience poor self-confidence and lower self-esteem.

A single tooth implant is one of the best restorative treatments for missing teeth as it brings the following benefits to the patient.
•  A single tooth implant replaces the root of the lost tooth, so it becomes a permanent part of your body that provides the required stimulation to your jaw bone
•  Dental implants look and feel exactly like real teeth
•  Since a dental implant is a fixed structure, you don't have to worry about it moving or sliding in your mouth as you eat or talk
•  With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime

There are three components of single tooth implants:
•  The screw-like titanium dental implant that is embedded into the jawbone and replaces your natural tooth root
•  The abutment which connects the implant to the crown
•  The dental crown is a cap for the implant that is exactly like your natural tooth. The dental crown is the only visible part of the structure.

What to Expect During the Single Tooth Implant Procedure

A single tooth implant procedure is a multi-stage process that starts with an initial consultation with our dental implant experts. When you schedule an appointment with the dental experts at Fox Dental Excellence, our dental implant specialist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to determine the health of your oral cavity and figure out whether your jawbone is healthy enough to receive the single tooth implant.

If your jawbone is weak, we may recommend a bone graft before the dental implant. We will then schedule you an appointment for your next visit. We will cut into your gum tissues during the visit after injecting a local anesthetic into your jawbone. Our dental implant experts will then drill a hole into your jawbone to attach a titanium post in your jaw that serves as the tooth's root.

Once the dental implant is embedded in your jawbone, we only schedule appointments to assess the progress of osseointegration and will not attach the abutment or the crown until the dental implant completely integrates with the bone, which takes between three to six months.

Following the integration of the dental implant and the jawbone, we will attach the abutment to the dental implant and take an impression of your teeth for the correct measurement of the crown. Once the dental crown returns, we will attach the crown over the dental implant, and this stage marks the completion of your single tooth implant.

If you are looking for solutions for your missing tooth, get in touch with the dental experts at Fox Dental Excellence. Take your first step toward restoring your confidence and your smile, achieving your dream smile by booking your appointment with us.
