When folks are missing teeth, there are lots of different options in the world of prosthetic dentistry. One of the most popular options are single tooth implants.

When it comes to dental implants, there are plenty of options if you are the right candidate for implants.
There are many different reasons that folks would need implants. All of them involve the loss of a single tooth. The process for getting a dental implant is actually pretty simple, and the way dental implants work is to replicate real teeth. The first thing that needs to be done is a bone graft, this stabilizes where the implant will go. Then, to make it a bit easier to understand, a socket is placed in the graft for the tooth to “screw” into. Once it is in place, the implant is secured and then acts like every other tooth in your mouth. After a while, you’ll forget it’s even in there.
The best part about dental implants is how realistic they are. They look, feel, and act just like regular teeth. The only difference is that you don’t have the same sensation in the implant that you would in a regular tooth. The key is that the area where the implant goes must be clear and healthy. This allows the implant to work properly. The feel of the tooth is exceptional as well, teeth will feel in the mouth as proper as regular teeth.
If there are parts of your smile that you’re not happy with because there’s a gap, then you could be a candidate for single tooth implants. The process for getting evaluated is very easy. Give us a call at the office and our staff will assist you in learning about implants.
