Single Implants Melton – Are They Right for You?

When one tooth is missing, many issues might arise, including bone loss in the area of the missing tooth, gum irritation when you chew and eat, and remaining teeth tend to shift out of place due to lack of support.

Traditionally, a dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth. To do this, the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth must be prepared to act as abutments or holders for the bridge. The bridge is then secured onto the abutment teeth with an extra crown in the middle to replace the missing tooth.

The downside of a bridge is that the tooth root is still missing. This leads to the loss of the jawbone in the area as it deteriorates with no tooth root. Eventually, this can lead to a hollow or drooping area of bone that causes surrounding teeth to shift out of place. Externally, jawbone loss may be noticed as an aged and sallow appearance.

A single implant replaces the tooth root, which helps prevent jawbone loss. The crown that sits on the implant replaces your tooth without the need to treat surrounding teeth. Your new tooth and root will function and look just like a natural tooth while preserving your overall oral health and appearance.

Benefits of Single Dental Implants

Single implants are a preferred dental solution to replace missing teeth. That’s because once the process is complete, the prosthesis looks and feels like a real tooth. Care and maintenance are the same as with your natural teeth and should include daily brushing, flossing, and dental checkups with professional cleanings to ward off future dental issues and keep your mouth clean and fresh. The following is a summary of the benefits of dental implants:

Implants are made of titanium, which is biocompatible with human tissue
Implants stimulate jawbone repair, so your body builds new bone around it
Replacing the tooth root prevents bone loss due to a missing tooth and root
The implant and dental crown look and function like a real tooth
Durable and long-lasting
Anti-aging as it preserves the shape of your facial structure
Easier to clean than traditional bridges
Leave surrounding teeth intact

Can I Get a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are an ideal solution to replace missing teeth. The best candidates have healthy gums, adequate jawbone to support a dental implant, and good oral health.

Some situations will not support dental implants, including gum disease or extensive bone loss of the jawbone. If this is the case, do not give up. Our experienced team of dentists will do a full examination and may be able to restore oral health by treating gum disease or using bone grafts to build up the bone.
