Say Goodbye to Your Embarrassing Tooth Loss With Our Single Implant

When we lose a tooth, it’s important to restore it with a stable replacement that looks and feels like natural teeth. Having a dental bridge or denture to replace a missing tooth can be an excellent option.

However, dental bridges require the surrounding teeth to be trimmed, whereas dentures can be difficult to adjust to, especially if the denture is uncomfortable. Single implants provide tooth replacements that are closest to natural teeth. They are made of a metal post, embedded in the jaw to replace the missing tooth’s roots, and a crown placed on top of the implant, fabricated to look and function like natural teeth. This results in a stable, natural-looking, long-lasting replacement for your missing tooth.

Dental Problems Single

Gum Disease

Patients with gum disease suffer from severe bone loss, making it difficult to retain dentures since dentures depend on bone level for retention.

Once a gum disease patient has been determined to have stable gum health, a single implant can be a better option than traditional dentures. Since implants are embedded in the bone, they can provide a more stable replacement for missing teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Single Implants

To be eligible for single implants, a patient must have good overall health, healthy gum tissue and adequate bone density to support the implant. Additionally, they must be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and visiting their dentist regularly. To determine if you’re eligible for implants, schedule a consultation with our clinic. If you are not a candidate for single implants, your dentist may offer you alternative treatment options.

Your implant can last up to 20 years or more with proper care. However, the dental crown attached to the single implant must be replaced every 5-10 years due to wear and tear.

Anesthesia is administered before starting the procedure so you won’t feel any pain. However, you should expect some discomfort and swelling after your procedure. This can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication. Your dentist will also provide post-operative instructions to help you recover quickly and comfortably.

After numbing the area or putting you to sleep, your dentist will make a small incision in your gums to expose the bone. They will drill a hole in your jawbone before inserting the implant. Once the implant has been placed, your gum will be sutured closed. Your jawbone needs to heal and fuse to the implant, which can take a couple of months. Once it has healed, your dentist will attach an abutment (a connector piece) to the implant and take an impression which will be used to fabricate a crown. Finally, your new dental crown will be attached to your implant.

Caring for a single implant is not much different from taking care of your natural teeth.

  • Brush your teeth using a soft-bristled toothbrush and low abrasive toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque around the gum line.
  • Have regular dental check-ups and cleaning every six months.
  • Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, as these can damage the implant.

By following these instructions, you can have long-lasting implants that can help improve your smile and oral health.

With single implants, the cost of treatment depends on several factors, including the type of implant you choose, whether or not you require a bone graft, your dentist and clinic location. Generally, you can expect to pay $2900 to $3600 per tooth. To get a more accurate estimate, call and inquire at Dentalcare of Forrestfield.
