One of the most efficient and affordable solutions for replacing a single tooth, is a dental implant. Missing teeth can not only change the way your smile looks, but it can also affect the way you speak, eat and function on a day-to-day basis. Whether you’ve lost a permanent tooth due to injury, disease or another reason, it’s essential to seek professional advice to prevent both immediate and long term damage.
At Perth Dental Implant Centre, we offer a wide variety of restorative implants including full mouth All-On-4 implants and multiple tooth implants. If you’ve lost a tooth, a single tooth implant in Perth may be the right options for you. Not only do single tooth implants look and feel like natural teeth, they’re also designed to promote the longevity and health of your existing teeth.
The term “implant” refers to the small, screw-shaped post placed into the bone. This is used to replace the root of a missing tooth which supports the new tooth/teeth in the mouth. This post is made from titanium as it has the unique ability to enable a process known as osseo-integration. This process allows both the bone and implant to fuse, making it sturdy, reliable and more life-like. If you’re missing a tooth, you may want to contact our team at Perth Dental Implant Centre to discuss your implant options.
How Do Single Tooth Implants Work?
Our single tooth implant procedures in Perth are primarily used to replace missing teeth and can be undertaken under either general anaesthetic or sedation restore smiles. At Perth Dental Implant Centre, our dentist will gently and carefully insert a titanium screw into your jaw bone, known as an implant, replacing the gap where your tooth and root once stood. After your implant has effectively healed, an abutment and crown are attached, restoring your smile and missing tooth. This procedure is common for those with multiple, singular missing teeth. If the missing teeth are adjacent, a single tooth implant may not be required. Instead, two implants may be used with a three or four tooth bridge, replacing multiple teeth in one procedure.
