Dental Implants

If you have lost one tooth due to trauma, injury, or naturally, a single-tooth implant is the best tooth-replacement option that looks and operates similarly to a natural tooth. A dental implant replaces both the missing natural tooth and its root. Single Tooth Implant is a surgical treatment that replaces the roots of missing or damaged teeth with metal posts shaped like screws. These posts are then used to support prosthetic teeth that are meant to resemble natural teeth in appearance and function. It involves the placement of an artificial tooth root (usually made of titanium) into the jawbone, which is then used to support a replacement tooth or dental crown. The end result will be a replacement tooth that looks, feels, and performs just like one of your natural teeth. All you have to do is clean it with standard teeth-brushing methods.

 

A missing tooth can cause problems chewing and eating, as well as impact your face shape and make you feel self-conscious about your smiling. If you’re looking for a solution for your missing tooth, look no further than single-tooth implants by House of Dontics. Dental implants have a longer lifespan than other dental treatment alternatives, lasting at least 10–12 years. Dental implants have a long lifespan because they are made of strong materials and are securely anchored into the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth. A single tooth implant restoration normally consists of three components: the implant post, which replaces the root of the missing tooth; the abutment, which supports the crown; and the artificial crown itself. The crown can be attached to the abutment using either glue or a screw. All components of the implant are made from biocompatible materials that do not cause any adverse reactions in the mouth.

  • Stop taking any blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen at least a week before the surgery, unless instructed otherwise by a doctor.
  • Do not eat or drink anything for at least 6-8 hours before the surgery, as this will reduce the risk of vomiting or complications during anesthesia.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and avoid wearing jewelry or contact lenses on the day of the  surgery.
  • Inform the doctor if you have any medical conditions or if you are taking any medications, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements.

  • Notify the dentist if you develop a cold, flu, or other illness before the surgery, as it may need to be rescheduled.
  • Rest and avoid physical activity for the first few days after the surgery.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery, as you may not be able to drive due to the effects of anesthesia or pain medication.
  • Avoid chewing or biting on the implant site for at least 24 hours after the surgery.
  • Apply an ice pack to the cheek near the implant site to reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Keep fingers and tongue away from the surgical area.

Understanding Root Causes of Dental Issues

tooth damage

Tooth decay or damage

A single tooth may require implantation due to severe tooth decay, trauma, or injury.

Gum disease

Gum disease

Periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease, can cause tooth loss, which may require a single tooth implant.

Congenital absence

Congenital absence

Some people are born without one or more permanent teeth, which can affect their bite and appearance.

orthodntic

Orthodontic treatment

failed root canal

Failed root canal

If a root canal treatment fails, it may be necessary to remove the tooth and replace it with a dental implant.

Aging

As we age, our teeth may become weaker and more susceptible to damage or decay, leading to tooth loss.

tooth injurery

Accidents or injuries

lifestyle

Lifestyle habits

Poor oral hygiene, smoking, and a high-sugar diet can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, leading to tooth loss that may require a single tooth implant.

Our Treatment Process

Initial Consultation

The initial step is to evaluate the patient’s dental health, medical history, and bone structure. To plan the implant placement and select the right size and kind of implant, the dentist will take x-rays, CT scans, and impressions.

Tooth Extraction

If the tooth is still there, it must be extracted before the implant can be put. If the tooth has already been removed, this step can be skipped.

Implant Placement

Dental implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone. A small incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the bone, and then a hole is drilled to place the implant. The implant is made of a biocompatible material, usually titanium, which eventually fuses with the jawbone.

Healing period

During the healing process, the implant will fuse with the surrounding bone in a process called osseointegration. This usually takes several months and is necessary to ensure that the implant is securely anchored in the jawbone.

Abutment Placement

 Once the implant has fully healed and fused with the bone, a small post called an abutment will be attached to the implant. The abutment will serve as the foundation for the final restoration.

Crown placement

The final step is to attach the artificial tooth, or crown, to the abutment. The crown will be removable and fixed or The crown will be created from Metal, Porcelain, Zirconia & PFM (porcelain fused to metal) which is implanted as the patient chooses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are There Same-Day Whitening Whitenings?
Yes, same-day single-tooth implants are possible. With advances in implant technology and techniques, some patients may be candidates for immediate placement and restoration of a dental implant in a single appointment. However, this option may not be suitable for all cases, and a thorough evaluation by a dental professional is necessary to determine the best treatment plan.
How long does a single-tooth implant procedure take?
The length of a single-tooth implant procedure depends on various factors, such as the patient’s oral health, the location of the missing tooth, and the complexity of the case. Generally, the process can take anywhere from three to six months, including the healing period after surgery.
Is Single Tooth Implant Surgery Painful?
The implant surgery is absolutely painless, ensuring that you have a comfortable experience. The implant procedure itself is usually done under local anesthesia and is therefore not painful.
What are the benefits of Single Tooth Implants?
Single-tooth implants can improve your appearance and oral health by replacing missing teeth with a natural-looking and functioning artificial tooth. Implants also help to maintain the structure of the jawbone and surrounding teeth, and they do not require any additional maintenance or care beyond regular brushing and flossing.
What is the success rate of Single Tooth Implants?
The success rate of Single Tooth Implants is very high, with an average success rate of over 95%.
In Case of Diabetes or Gum Disease Can I Still Have Implants?
Yes, you can still have a single tooth implant with diabetes or gum disease, but it’s important to manage these conditions effectively to reduce the risk of complications. Consult with Our dentist and physician to ensure that your health is stable before undergoing any dental procedure.
Can I get an MRI scan done after single tooth implant treatment?
Yes, it is generally safe to undergo an MRI scan after a single tooth implant treatment. However, it is important to inform your healthcare provider about the implant before the scan to ensure the safety and accuracy of the results.
