Dental Implants: A Single Tooth Replacement
Dallas, TX


Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients who are missing one or several teeth. They serve as anchors for single crowns, bridges or a complete set of teeth. One of the many reasons why implants are gaining popularity is due to their ability to create fixed restoration, as single or multiple teeth. After the implant is placed, a healing period of 3 to 4 months is necessary to allow the bone to grow. After placing the crown or bridge it will not need to be removed for teeth cleaning, meals, medical procedures or any other day to day activity.

Dental Implants for Missing Teeth


Dental implants are substitutes or replacements for tooth roots. A tooth consists of a crown and a root. A dental crown is that part of the tooth which is visible in the mouth and is supported by the root portion. The root is under the gum tissue, surrounded by the bone. Implants are placed into the bone so that a prosthetic crown (the visible part of your tooth) can be firmly attached. State-of-the-art technology in implant dentistry makes it possible to provide replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. At Dallas Prosthodontics we offer multiple types of dental implants, including titanium-based or zirconium implants.

Implants can also increase your comfort by eliminating loose fitting complete and partial dentures. Dental implants act to stop the deterioration in the jawbone, which occurs when the natural teeth are lost.

Who is a Candidate?


Many people who are missing a tooth can be a candidate for a dental implant. If you are a smoker, heavy drinker, or take certain prescription medications, you should discuss your options with your prosthodontist. The ideal candidate will have good oral health including bone structure in the mouth and healthy gum tissue.

Single Tooth Replacement
Dallas, TX


Missing a single tooth can look trivial, but it can really change the appearance of your smile and even affect your dental health. One missing tooth will leave a space that will affect how you chew food, and even disturb your speech production. Thankfully, you can replace just a single tooth without waiting for others to fall out or even causing a detriment to your jawbone health. At Dallas Prosthodontics, we carry out single tooth replacement to help patients restore their smiles, oral health, and ability.

What Is A Single Tooth Replacement?


Single tooth replacement is a procedure our professionals perform to restore a missing tooth for patients. Dental implants are the most suitable solutions for a single tooth replacement. Dental implants consist of three parts. One is a tiny titanium post which is surgically placed inside the jawbone to act as a tooth root. Another is an abutment which holds the third part which is a crown to the titanium post. With so many benefits to offer, dental implants prove to be long lasting solutions with little to worry about.

How Is A Single Tooth Replaced With A Dental Implant?


Once you lose a tooth, our professionals advise that you come for a replacement as soon as possible. This is to prevent the jawbone in that space from losing its density. In your initial appointment, our professionals will examine the vacant space. We will also go through your dental and health records to ensure that you are a fit candidate for a dental implant.

If you do not have adequate jawbone density in the space, you may require an initial bone graft procedure. This will help to rebuild your jawbone to required health. Once healed, the procedure for placing the dental implant will commence. Our team will surgically place the implant post into your jaw, and allow your jawbone to bond with the post during a healing period. The bonding is necessary to hold the post securely.

After the jawbone has healed, holding the implant post firmly, we will proceed to attach the abutment to the post. This may require several weeks to heal. Finally, a crown that has been previously designed to fit your teeth alignment will be placed to complete the tooth replacement.

Benefits Of A Single Tooth Replacement


While the most obvious benefit is an instant and enhanced restoration of your beautiful smile, single tooth implants offer better esthetics for your dentition. They subtly blend in with your natural teeth to give the perfect finished look. With dental implants, your natural teeth are all still retained, as other replacement options may require that you remove or reshape some of them.

Also, replacing a single tooth with dental implants ensures that your teeth alignment is preserved, and more importantly, bone loss is prevented. Dental implants are a good choice for your oral health, and they tend to last a lifetime.

So, do not hesitate about replacing your single missing tooth. You can contact us at Dallas Prosthodontics to learn more about how you can benefit from a single tooth replacement. Call us today at (972) 503-7200 to schedule a fitting consultation.
