Restoring Your Smile
What happens when you lose a tooth? In addition to marring the esthetics of your smile, tooth loss hinders your overall dental health. Even a single missing tooth can start a chain reaction that leads to poor oral health, and increases the risk of further missing teeth. To address tooth loss, Dr. Councill and Dr. Glass offer lifelike and durable replacements with single tooth dental implants.
What are Single Tooth Implants?
Single tooth dental implants are designed to replace one missing tooth. The process begins with the insertion of a biocompatible titanium post into the jawbone. Over time, the bone tissue bonds with the post, securing your implant. Next, an abutment will be added to the top of the implant post. The abutment holds the restoration in place. The restoration, in the form of a dental crown, is the last step in the process, completing your new tooth.
What are the Benefits of Single Tooth Implants?
- Prevents the shifting of adjacent teeth
- Prevents jawbone tissue loss
- Maintains the appearance of your smile
- Allows you to eat and speak normally
- Implants are long lasting
- Implants look and feel completely natural
