What are Single Tooth Implants?
Traditionally, a bridge and crowns replaces a single missing tooth. Although it is effective, it does require you to permanently alter healthy teeth, and it never feels natural because it only replaces the visible portion of your tooth. A dental implant is the only option to treat both the root and the crown.
A biocompatible implant post is surgically placed into your jaw to act as a new root. This stimulates your jaw to encourage new bone growth. Not only does this preserve your bone density, but it also causes your jaw to fuse the post. The creates a stable foundation for your replacement tooth while also offering the potential to last for a lifetime.
After your jawbone fuses to the post, a second minor surgery is needed to attach an abutment to the post, which acts as a connector piece. A couple of weeks after it is placed, a custom-made crown is attached to it. The restoration is carefully crafted to match the appearance of your real teeth to create natural-looking results.
How Much Does a Single Dental Implant Cost?
There is no set price you can expect to pay for your new smile because the cost is based on your personalized treatment plan.
