|Single Tooth Replacement with an Implant
When a single tooth is lost, the gap it leaves can affect more than just the aesthetics of your smile. It can have implications for your oral health and function as well. At Victor Nitu DDS, our goal is to revitalize your smile with a single tooth implant. Our team is here to help restore not just your smile but your confidence, too.
Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants are a marvel in restorative dentistry, offering a robust replacement for missing teeth. At our practice, we see countless individuals who have benefited from this technology, gaining not just a new tooth but renewed confidence in their smiles. A dental implant is a screw-like post that is carefully inserted into the jawbone during surgery, where it acts as an artificial tooth root. Over time, the implant fuses with your bone, providing a strong base for the crown, which mimics the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
Eligibility for Dental Implants
At our practice, our dentist will meticulously evaluate whether dental implants are the right choice for you. A successful implant requires healthy gums and sufficient jawbone to anchor it, or you might be a candidate for bone grafting. Our commitment to your oral health includes ensuring that your hygiene routine and regular dental visits support the long-term success of the implant.
The Single-Tooth Implant Procedure
When you are only missing a single tooth, a single-tooth implant presents an excellent solution without altering neighboring teeth, unlike traditional bridges. Our skilled dentist will first ensure your jawbone is strong enough to secure the implant. Should you need bone grafting, we will embark on that phase, allowing healing before the implant placement.
Journey Toward Your New Tooth
The journey to your new tooth entails precise planning and several stages. After the implant integrates with the bone, we prepare for the abutment (the connector piece) that supports the final crown. Our dentist will ensure that the gum tissue around the abutment heals correctly, setting the stage for the final piece: the crown itself. Meticulously crafted to match your natural teeth, the crown is then affixed, leaving you with a seamless addition to your smile.
Post-Procedure Care and Outcomes
After your implant procedure, it is imperative to give your new tooth the same diligent care as your original teeth. Considering the high success rates of dental implants, our practice places a strong emphasis on maintaining excellent oral hygiene and keeping up with consistent dental appointments. This careful attention helps to avert any potential issues and secures the enduring success of your implant.
The journey to receiving a dental implant can appear overwhelming, yet it is an endeavor that brings significant rewards. Rest assured, our committed team will support you through every phase, beginning with the initial evaluation and continuing until you depart from our doors with a fully restored and operational smile.
