Are you looking for a new replacement tooth that not only looks good and feels natural, but also is permanently fixed into your jaw giving you the ultimate tooth strength?
Then the single dental implant could be the option for you!!
The dental implant is a titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw, replacing the original root. Over time the titanium screw will fuse to your bone ensuring a solid foundation is achieved. This is completed with a new dental crown (tooth).
Multiple teeth can be replaced with single dental implants and is used in combination with a dental bridge or denture.
The success of the dental implant is dependent on the health of your bone. Factors are:
- Very healthy bone quality allows for the immediate loading of the dental implant and final dental crown (tooth) in one trip only.
- Good bone quality generally allows for the immediate loading of the dental implant with a temporary dental crown (tooth) placed. The titanium screw will require around 6 months to fuse to the bone and ensure a strong support foundation is achieved. At this stage the final dental crown (tooth) can be placed. This option will require 2 trips.
- Poor or limited bone quality will generally require a bone graft prior to the dental implant being inserted. This option will require 2-3 trips for the placement of the final crown (tooth).
