Implants can be a great solution for replacing single or even multiple teeth. With single tooth implant, each missing tooth is replaced by an individual implant, abutment, and crown. The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone in a safe, and common procedure. Implants are usually made of Titanium. There is an alternative non-metal Zirconia “ceramic” implant option; which is used for individual circumstances. Your bone bonds to the Titanium or Zirconia surface in a process named “osseointegration.”
Implant tooth replacement results in a sturdy foundation for your new restoration, maintains, and strengthens your jawbone. The implant is then fitted with an abutment, which connects the implant post with a crown, or tooth restoration. The crown will be custom made just for your mouth and will match your smile seamlessly. Single tooth implants offer the look, feel, and strength of healthy natural teeth.
