Single tooth implants are used to replace single missing teeth. The implant sits directly in your jawbone and integrates with the surrounding tissue. An abutment is then attached to the implant to allow a crown to be attached to form a natural looking tooth replacement.
A single tooth implant is used to repair a single tooth that has been damaged or lost. The implant serves as the root and is connected to the crown. Once in place, the crown looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth.

A Permanent Solution
A good implant will last more than 25 years, remain stable, solid and allow you to chew and smile like a natural tooth.
Once the implant is in there is no reason to remove it. You can clean, brush and floss it the way you would with your natural teeth.
Stimulates Bone Growth
An implant can stimulate bone growth in the area of the implant making the bone of the jaw stronger than it was before the implant.
Does This Mean I Need Surgery?
There is surgery involved and how much there will be and how long it will take depends on the type of implant you’re having and the condition of the jaw bone.
With regular brushing and flossing, the implant screw itself can last a lifetime, assuming the patient receives regular dental check-ups every 6 months. The crown, however, usually only lasts about 10 to 15 years before it may need a replacement due to wear and tear.
A dental implant post is a replacement for your missing tooth’s root. Not only does it fuse with your bone like a root, but it also stimulates and preserves your bone structure. On top of a dental implant post sits a restoration. Typically, it’s a single crown replacing one tooth.
After your mouth has been numbed, an incision will be made in the gums in order to expose the underlying bone in the area where the implant will be placed. Your dentist or oral surgeon will then use a special drill that creates a space for the implant to be inserted. The implant is then screwed into the slot.
