Are you missing a single tooth? If you are then a single implant with a crown can replace it.
A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and it’s root and can offer several benefits over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning just like a natural tooth, a dental implant can replace a single tooth without there being any affect on the health of the other neighbouring teeth.
The fact that a dental implant will replace your tooth root means that the bone will be preserved. Typically the dental implant will integrate with your jawbone, which will in turn help keep the bone both healthy and intact. For long term purposes, a single dental implant is more aesthetic and easier to clean than other tooth replacement treatments.
Here at our dental surgery in Glasgow we offer dental implants as one of our treatments and regularly provide it to patients who have one single tooth missing. Patients in Glasgow who have had dental implants on a single tooth from us often tell us that we’ve helped them to restore their confidence in their smile as well as give them the ability to chew and speak without feeling self-conscious.
The treatment itself involves an implant which looks like a screw/cylinder being placed into your jaw. Time will need to be given for the implant and the bone to be allowed to bond together to form an anchor for your artificial tooth. After this we will then be able to place a crown to the dental implant.
