At Belmont Surgery Clinic, we offer a comprehensive single tooth replacement solution designed to restore your smile’s natural look and function.
What Are Single Tooth Implants?
Single tooth replacement is a common dental procedure that can restore the appearance and functionality of a patient’s smile. The process typically involves the placement of a dental implant, which is a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the missing tooth root. This implant acts as a strong and stable foundation for the artificial tooth that will be attached to it.
The Process of Single Tooth Implant Placement
Single Tooth Implant can provide a long-term solution for restoring the function and appearance of a missing tooth. Here are the steps involved in the process:
The first step is to consult with us to determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant. During this visit, we will examine your mouth and take X-rays to assess the condition of your jawbone and the surrounding teeth. We will also discuss your medical history and any medications you are taking.
Before the implant can be placed, any remaining tooth material or debris must be removed from the site of the missing tooth. If the jawbone is not strong enough to support the implant, a bone graft may be required to build up the bone density.
The next step is to surgically place the implant post into the jawbone. This procedure is typically done under local anaesthesia, and we will make a small incision in the gum tissue to access the jawbone. The implant post is then carefully placed into the bone and covered with a protective cap to allow the site to heal.
It takes several months for the implant to fully integrate with the jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. During this time, you will need to follow a strict oral hygiene regimen to prevent infection and ensure proper healing.
Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is attached to the implant post. This abutment serves as the foundation for the replacement tooth.
Finally, the replacement tooth, also known as a crown, is attached to the abutment. The crown is custom-made to match the size, shape, and colour of the surrounding teeth for a natural-looking result.
